Anyone running Cooper ST Maxx Tires

Now that my jeep is lifted a couple of inches im looking for a decent tire to replace my aging michelins. Looks like the Cooper ST Maxx tires are getting solid reviews across the board, the look badA$$, but they also look heavy, can anyone with an i6 vouch for their performance? Worth the money? Im on the road 95% of the time but no stranger to rough fire roads, gravel roads, snow and wet roads.


I am between those and a set of BFG rugged terrains (I can get a deal on).

Looking at size 245/75/16.

I was looking at them when i replaced my STT. Since the only come in a E load they are heavy which will make for a bit of a rough ride.

I really like the look of the tires too! They are coming out with 25-30 more sizes this year. I would bet that c and d loads will be included.

I guess it may pay off to wait a bit then.

I would love to run these tires, but alas the size(s) I want aren't available. All of the reviews I have found on them say they are extremely heavy but also very quiet and well-mannered on-road. A great hybrid A/T!.

Depending on your size check out Mickey Thompson new ATZ Plus3 and the new Dick Cepek Fun Country. Also Atturo Trail Blades look interesting.

I would stay away from Atturo until they are further proven unless you get a screaming deal on them and are willing to be a guinea pig of sorts.

Mickey Thompson makes some amazing tires. They sure don't come cheap though!! Cooper actually bought Mickey Thompson and I see some MT design influences in their newest tires.

The Dick Cepek FCs only come in E-rated (I thought). They have a great reputation for being a tough, long-lasting, heavy tire, but I think they are better for the full-size truck community than our relatively-light Jeeps. I was wheeling with a guy on FC-IIs and he was aired down to about 10psi and they didn't even look aired down since the sidewalls are so firm.

Do you know when they are coming out with the new sizes?

According to cooper themselves by the end of the year. I had emailed them that question and that was the response. Also I had emailed falken tires inquiring about their at2's that are listed at several stores such as discount. I was hoping that they were going to come out with a hybrid tire like the dura track or st maxx, however they told me that the new at2's will only have a different rubber compound and slightly thicker sidewalls but tread pattern will be the same.

With regards to the fact that they're heavy, keep in mind that while they'll slow you down on the road, heavier tires and rims will help lower the center of gravity, which is always a good thing in a lifted WJ! I'm not sure exactly how much 30-40 extra lbs on each corner will actually offset the CoG, but it's there... Is it worth it? /shrug
