Narrowed it Down to Three Tires - Any Advice?

I know, I know...you're thinking "Oh God, not another 'help me pick tires' thread" but I do need some help, I can't make up my damn mind here...

I'm between the following:



**** Cepek Mud Country


Pro Comp Xtreme MT


Cooper Discovery STT





Anyone have any opinion or experience with these tires? To be perfectly honest I'm leaning towards the Pro Comp or Cooper soley on looks.


2003 Patriot Blue Wrangler SE - RCX 2.5" Kit on 31x10.5 Firestone M/Ts and stock the rest of the way.
2007 Flame Red Wrangler Unlimited X - Skyjacker 4" Kit on 35x12.5 Cooper Discovery STT(

I know of the tires but not about them. If it was me, I would pic the one with the toughest sidewall (puncture resistance).

That would be Goodyear MTR Kevlar.
I would go with either cooper or DC.
We have always had a hard time balancing Pro Comps.

Three tires?

You are going to need four. Maybe 5 if you carry a spare.

Your comprehension skills are lacking at the moment. Hes talking about choices, not quantity.

Thanks for your input, the last thing I want with my sloppy *** front end is a tire that's difficult to balance. That's actually the reason I threw the MTR w/ Kevlars out of the top 3 choices; because I heard on several accounts that they're a ***** to balance.

Any reason for not including the BFG's? Their cost factor is the same as the other 3 sets.

No reason other than I wanted to try a tire that 75% of people weren't running.

I would take a look at the Nitto Trail Grappler MTs. I have them and think they are great and not a lot of people run them.
