Thoughts on the these Coker Tires

Running 31 A/T Cooper discoverers-- bout 6k miles on them.. they are rated for 50k and I really don't see it. I see maybe another 25k-30k in them.. I rotate them and keep them balanced , running at 29 psi. I believe the road crown wear here in Florida is gonna kill them prematurely though.. they are directional tires so they will be toast for road use I suspect way too early.. and with the amount of rain we get down here, eh. I am looking at tires to get this coming spring and not sure I wanna spend more to go bigger, maybe up to 32 .. but why? I ask myself.

I considered going to a 33x10.5x 15 , cooper A/T's again.. I can get 5 tires for 850.00 mounted and balanced . or stay at 31's for 100 less.

I was also looking at these Coker's.. my brother sent me the Link

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Coker-Vintag...ecb011&vxp=mtr

Can I get some input from the forum?

I am sure these wouldn't be much good for general use.. but man they sure look beefy.. lolol

thanks

Can you elaborate some? Because of width? Height? Ride? Poor Performance?

Recommendations?

I really want to keep my budget under 1k .. I air my current tires down when off-roading and being that they are A/T.. they do considerably well .. even if they don't have huge knobs or crazy siping .

The new micky Thompson at3 will be a good choice for you. I have the mickey Thompson mt on my half ton ram and have over 65k on them and they still have some life on them.

You wont like the cookers, they are a bias play which means they will get flat spots over night. So every short trip will be bouncy until they round back out. Stick with a radial tire.

This is why. Flat spots, louder than hell, crappy ride.

Appreciated .. I didn't even notice they weren't radial.. of course they wouldn't be. My Granddad has an old Cadillac 54' with the fins.. He keeps it in storage .. I remember he would have me take it out every spring to put the battery in and service .. Nylon tires.. things stayed flat spotted ..

I can't find the Mickey Thompson at3's online anywhere. Not even Mickey Thompson website.. how much per tire for these @ 31x 10.5 x15 do they make a 32 x 9.5x 15?

I am really leaning toward either a 31 or a 33 --- 9.5x 15 I am thinking I wanna go thinner as opposed to wider .. pizza cutter style

Which no longer exist for 15" wheels.

I've pent countless hours searching, and have only found remnants of data from tires that were once made for 15" wheels.

If you and I want pizza-cutter tires, we'll have to switch to the far more common (on trucks) 16" wheels now.
