Goodyear MTR's or...

I'll be looking at new tires next spring. Currently I am running Goodyear Wrangler MTR's on my Moab wheels. I am very happy with this set-up and will most likely go back to these tires.
Recently Cooper Tires bought out Mickey Thompson and came out with a tire that has great reviews, more affordable than Goodyear, and resembles the MTR.
This tire is "Cooper Discoverer STT".
Cooper also claims that their sidewall is just as tough and puncture-proof as the MTR.




Which of these tires would you go with?
Has anyone run these?

I am tempted to try the STT's mainly because Tire-Rama would back them up. They even prefer these over the MTR's.


Well, what do you think?

Cooper has been around along time. And makes alot of private lable named brand tires for others to name. I'd say the coopers but I'm kinda biased I don't care much for goodyear.

I don't like MTR's personally. Check out the Toyo M/T's. I love my Truxus M/T's also.

I'm running the STT's on my rig. Quieter than the BFG's they replaced, stronger sidewalls too. Excellant traction on all types of terrain. I'll buy 'em again when these wear out.

If you're happy with your MTR's I'd stick with them again. For how many miles you can get out of a set you can't go wrong. They are a great proven tire as long as you're not in any slop. They seem to be awesome in the rocks and act like a glorified AT everywhere else. Not knocking them, just pointing it out.

Another one to consider is the Maxxis Bighorns. I'm very happy with mine so far.
I researched them quite a bit and found very little negative about them. By far cheaper than either of the tires previously mentioned. I had 5 33's shipped to my door for @ $650.

I was talking to a guy today about Coopers. His buddy has them on his DD and loves them. Wheels them like crazy on the weekends then drives around Denver on the weekdays. He says they are wearing really well also.

I considered getting them for mine but I got a smoking deal on 33' BFG MT's that I couldn't pass up.

Sharpie, I'm looking to get the same tires in 32" where did you get them? I'm assuming they were 11.5's?
