Wasn't sure which thread to post this on... Can you put 32x11.50s on stock 15x 7 wheels??? if 12.50 tires go on 15x8s all the time, there shouldn't be a problem right? (not considering back spacing) I don't wanna throw away a good set of wheels.

If it's not a good idea then i'm just gonna go up too 33s if I'm gonna have to buy new wheels too

Why would 32x11.5s on the stock 15x7s allow me to air down a lot???

wide tire on narrow wheel allows airing down with less risk of losing a bead. The lip of the tire is pressured against the wheel lip creating a tight seal.

Cool! thanks man, I've never aired down very much because I've heard some bad stories. But even a little bit can go a long way. Thanks for the tip!

I'm looking for a mud tire in 33X12.50. My two top priorities are it HAS to be good in mud (always raining here), and it has to have good tread life. What I DON'T care about is noise. Actually, I'd prefer some road slap. I can't figure out why everybody is praising mud tires for how quiet they are... My top pick was BFG MT, then after price shopping today at Discount Tire the guy got me thinking about Cooper Discoverer STT's, but after reading about how nice and quiet and fluffy they are, I'm reconsidering. Are there any "real" mud tires that perform well in the slop while still getting long tread life? I even thought about Boggers, but they just seem like they'd either chunk out or only get 10K out of them before they wore down. That and, while I'd prefer some road humm, Boggers seem like they'd shake the Jeep apart on the freeway, lol.

just go with the bfg muds. You know they last long and perform well which hits both of your priorities.

Go with the Coopers, sure they're quiet, but they deliver more on the trail and in soft going than the BFG's. I find the only thing they don't perform well on is wet grass. I won our club champs in my baby Jeep with STT's fitted. A very underrated tire.

Do they wear good? My friend up in RIT has a Yukon and ran three sets of these tires. Each got no more than 25k. He now runs MT/R's.

I ran them on a 98 wrangler and a 2002 Tacoma I loved the way that they performed .I know a couple of guys that are running them and the say that they wouldnt have any other tire.

I don't know how long the latest Cooper STT's have been out in the USA but they've only been out here about a year. Your friend might have been using the old Cooper STT style? I know the new ones are much better on road and in most ways still better than the old ones off road.

If you want mileage I'd go for the Cooper ST's which are more of an all terrain but are excellent on road. In Australia, Cooper gurantee them for 50,000 miles or will replace them for free. Obviously they're not as good as the STT's off road but still great in the dry dirt and they are a really sticky tire on the road. I had them on my GMC tow vehicle and could outrun most cars in the turns! The GMC is an 8.1 and I'm a little heavy footed so the rears wore out in 25,000 but the fronts were still plemty good.
