I'm probably getting the Cooper. They're $950 shipped for 4 including replacement certs. My main worry was that they wouldn't be able to handle rocks. If I get the certs, I can get them replaced.
Same here, he is on one tons also

I know one guy with the Cooper stt's, I only talked to him after his 2nd or 3rd trip. He said he liked them so far, but wasn't too happy about how much they had chunked already. I could say the same about my mtrs after one season also.

The stt pro looks like it would be less susceptible to chunking.

True.
They are good on rock, but behave like a AT in mud. Will not buy them again.

Umm..No.

The truck I've been using is only on 35s, & they have yet to have any problems in mud. Hell, we followed 42s through a mud bog at a local event.

Even with a little tired 22r, they clean out no problem in thick, sloppy shit. I'm thoroughly impressed with KM2s. It shocks me how capable this little Toyota is with them in just a 35.

I just got back from a 1200 mile road trip down into Baja for spring break. Half of the driving was in Mexico with a lot of sand dirt roads etc. tires did great. Aired down to about 20 on the deep sand and nothing could stop me. Road noise minimal.

This was on discounttiredirect.com the other day. I checked today and they went up $15 each (up to $1009)

I ended up getting a referral from a friend to a guy at America's Tire locally. He's doing the 4 tires, certs, tax, install for $1047 for 4 so I'm going with him. Just ordered them today, hopefully will be here by Saturday so I can get them done.

Keep in mind that I'm getting 35 x 12.5 x 15. 15" tires are usually around $100 less each than the same tire in a 17". So it's nice that 15" tires will fit a TJ nicely and give me more sidewall. My JK friends have to do 17" tires...

I lost two tires last Saturday so I had to borrow a spare from a friend so I can drive to the tire shop. Sent my friend a text -- can I borrow you spare for a couple days. He replied right away to 'come get it'. Only a wheeler would understand and not ask any questions lol.

Start a thread with a review about these. The price is very attractive and my jeeps going to need shoes soon.

Looks good, nice TJ! What axles are you running to handle 37's?

Getting mine tomorrow. One of my friends with a JKU is getting the 37's too. Can't wait to try them out.

Cool looking tire. I wonder if the scoops and divots in the sides of the lugs actually do anything. Im also curious to see if the center pattern cleans very well in mud.

I have rocker radials on my trail truck and Trail Grapplers on my daily FJC that also sees some action from time to time. I cannot say a bad thing about either of those tires. Rocker Radials on a fairly light rig at 8psi are the shit.

My PBRR's refuse to die, but I am ready to replace. I would like a 40, as the 41.5 PBR is just too big, even though I keep trying to convince myself it will be okay and I wont break everything attached to them.

I'm going wheeling in a couple weeks so we will see what the side lugs do if anything. Depending on rain there may be mud. The trails here in NC dry quickly.
I did drive it 100 miles yesterday at highway speeds, 30 psi is still definitely high but I have zero complaints of the tires. There is some hum but to be expected. Passed a pickup on mud grapplers and I could hear his tires over my tires and even the Jeep in general.
Being Load range E, it's going to be a challenge to find the right psi. I'll try 28 and see

How are the 37" Cooper STT Pros for height? Weight?

Everything I found on them rate them as a D tire..... reading they are an E tire on here??

They have 37x13.5 and 37x12.5. I believe the 12.5s are D and 13.5s are E

Crazy they built a 12.50 and a 13.50 tire????

Still curious if anyone has weighed them?

True height?

Sidewall life?

My 37x13.50s are E range and measured 26.5" at 28psi on 17x9 wheel. Part of me wishes I went x12.50 but Im down to 26 psi and its a ton better. Sadly, havent wheeled yet but did get through some mud, tread cleaned out well even sloppy clay.

I assume you mean 36.5"? And did you measure vertically?

Thx for the update...... I have read a lot of good stuff about them..... Curious about sidewall strength and tread life..... If they wear fast on the road then that means they are soft and hook up great on rocks......

Yes, 36.5" my bad. I believe I may be toed in to much cause the outside of the inner lugs are getting rounded, if that even makes sense. They do seem pretty soft. Fawkin wedding shit preventing me from wheeling so no update there

Thx for the update.... Congrats on the leashing....

The inner lugs? Center tread lugs?
