Cooper Discoverer STT vs BFG All Terrains

To start I have no experience with either of these tires. In the past I've had pretty good luck with Bridgestone and Firestones. I see a lot of guys here running Cooper STT. Could you tell me what you think. I'm mostly on road highway driving (25 miles to work each way) but like to get out on the trails too (Im just down the road from Uwharrie). So what's the road noise like on these tires? How are they on the trails? How do you think they compare with BFG All Terrains? I've tried reading up on tirerack.com and a couple other places but they don't talk about Cooper tires. Thanks.

Get any tire besides the BFG AT, had them before and they suck! Noisy and were slicks in the mud..

I read great things about the STT, only complaint is road noise. I am between these and the Treadwright Guard Dog's.

Rather different tire styles there. I like the STT's, though I've never run them. Lots of experience with other Cooper tires and I've never been disappointed.

The BFG AT's will last longer than the STT's, mostly because they are such a different tire.

If you want an AT tire, get teh Cooper AT3's. As mentioned above.

I had the BFG AT's , they were an excellent tyre. I drive 250 km to work & back once a fortnight, they were excellent on the road especially in the wet.

My BFG AT on a TJ are awful in the rain. I nearly hydroplane on the smallest bit of standing water. Sometimes I actually debate whether or not to leave the house if it's raining. My next tires will definitely be the STT's.

Here is a pic of my DuraTrac with Uwharrie mud....they are great tires except I had to use a lot of weight to get them balanced...not sure if that is the tire or the China made AEV wheels. The tire worked awesome in the mud....

True. I have not tried the duratracs. But most mud tires are great for everything but asphalt.

With you on the AT3's Jvenrick.
Re: BFG's - They clog up very quickly in the mud and are the worst on road wet weather tyre that I ever had in the 30 years that I have owned 4WD's.

Cheers, Craig

I have the Grabber AT2 on the ZJ and am considering them for the WK. They work great aired down on beach sand here on Long Island. I have had them down to 12 psi and at that never popped a bead and can go anywhere on Fire Island without getting stuck, no limited slip on the ZJ....

That is where the DuraTrac shines...it is a AT/MT hybrid.....
