That's a tough one because most of the wheeling we did wasn't tough enough on tires. Sand Hollow is very favorable to tires because its like sand paper, damn near bald tires would work well. Both ORD and I were one of a couple rigs to make the big ledge on the UA video.

The rest of dirt roads there wasn't a competitive advantage over either.

If we spent a lot of time of slick and wet rocks or boulders that moved under you I would say I could have a good comparison.

Its also tough to tell with rigs that are very different. Hes got way more travel, way more horsepower and more gearing. With that said I did not see either of us going damn, I would have made that if my tires gripped.

I didnít hear it first hand but from what heís heard talking to people running them is that they hook up ok when new and once they wear a tad they get horrendously worse.

Iím eye balling the falkens or Nitto trail grapplers. But thatís another thread.

YotaAtieToo This is kinda funny to me, I actually swore off Cooper tires a while back after having 3 out of 4 tires separate on a work truck. The tires had maybe 20k on them. Always checked pressures and rotated regularly.

I told that story to quite a few people who said they had bad experiences with cooper's and wouldn't buy them again.

Sorry 45acp

After seeing the price of the 40s and liking the tread pattern, I was thinking about giving them another shot until I read these last posts.

But I'll never buy them again.
That's my experience too, they seem to be a very good tire off road, but I can't rotate mine because I only have 2 that are balanced anywhere near good enough to run on the front, so I'm gonna have a square pair with good tread on them when the fronts are done. My spare has 2 6" patches on the inside trying to get it to balance.

Any tire is going to measure less than the printed size that way. The best way is to measure horizontally.

You buddy's tape measure runs a little short.

06 H3 Thatís weird, they measure out as 39.76 from cooper.

That sucks

Funny though because I've been wanting a tire that size, up until I just sold my Toyota axles and now I want a true 40-42

Check ebay too. Discount tire sells on there and runs promo codes a lot.

Good job on 7-up. Pics and vid never show how long and steep that climb really is. Looks like the line is easier now that the old dead snag finally fell over.
