Speaking of the cooper's, they weren't much more, I actually like the tread pattern on them. I haven't read much about them in a 40 yet.
Im sure youve seen this thread. and maybe @06 H3 will chime in as he ran the 40s

Thanks, I had forgotten about that thread. I'm sure some will be happy to see the price has gone way down.

The STT pros hook up great!!!! watching other rigs I wheel with running other tires and reading reviews on an STT pro thread with a guy claiming they are the stickiest non sticky I can probably agree.

I have cut one though. Its weird, Ive literally dragged them across rocks and went wow how did that not cut! Then all of a sudden on something minor I got a tiny tear in the sidewall that took a plug or two. I was surprised since Ive dragged them through much worse stuff. Does being 6k lbs and Load range C cause that? Idk any thoughts?

I would bet money they will give him the new Mt they just released that looks like a Toyo. Not the directional style pictured above.

Some of us aren't and don't have face book

If you knew it was a completely different tire, then why did you mention it?

That's a lot of tires for one guy. Do they make those in a 40 yet?

I'm surprised they ever made the 38s and 40s honestly. They never promoted them at all. I think most people didn't even know they existed.

The new Toyo copies are barely out and I've already heard more about them than the old style that's been out for ~12+ years.

Very true and they were near impossible to get, at least through local stores. They were not even in the big O system, they told me they didn't exist.... next

The only place I found them for sale is Tire Rack. I just found Tire Rack also has the newest Yoko MT in the 37" flavor too.

Tire rack was where i ordered mine from as well. I had wanted to see one in person, to gauge true size and just get a feel for them, but could not.

I'm surprised that they had them in the system at Americas tire, I have never seen them listed on 5hirr website.

This seems to be the year that everyone is dipping their toe into the 38-40" market. Competition brings lower prices and better performance. We all win here

It does seem like more and more are bring new stuff to the 37+ market. I still find it odd that falken never offered anything bigger than a 37 to the public after how much marketing they did. They made the 38, but for the life of me I could not find a place that actually sold them.

I'd also like to see a 39-40xnormal width pitbull radial (a growler or rocker) seems like with the JK's that the 37s and 40s in a street able tire are getting more popular.

X2... I run the 37 RR now and they are the best tire I have run for what I do.... Which is pretty much everything.

Rumor has it the 40" RR will be 14.50 wide so I'm hoping they are a skinny 14.50 or they use the same measuring tape as they use for the height of the bias PBR's.....

14.5 isn't a bad width for a 40. I do prefer narrower tires, but I like to snow wheel so an extra inch I can deal with.

I'd actually like to see a 40" growler radial. They already have the 41.5" rocker radial. Seems like too small of a gap in sizes.
