Cooper Tires Discoverer STT... for drivers that want the 'Utmost in off-road traction'
They are specifically targeted for light truck, pickups, and SUV's. There is a wide variety in this tire, so you should do a bit of research on what specific flavor you're looking for.
Ok, you're here because you're looking for offroad tires... right? Well this is a great place to start.
The bite sized Cooper reviews below are from owners of these Cooper tires. Discoverer really does seem to hit the mark as a quality off-roading tire.
The speed rating is Q (as one would expect), and M+S for severe snow conditions.
The STT's have a tread design that is "aggressive" in that it extends far down the sidewall of the tire. This improves it's off-roading performance in mud and soft surfaces, as well as when climbing over rocks.
The wheel and tire are protected from hazards (when off roading) with the implementation of "Rim Flange Protection" in the lower side walls. "Tapered Stone Ejector" ribs extend from the center lugs to help prevent rocks and debris from getting stuck in the tread. This is also said to improve traction in soft surfaces.
Cooper Tires has computer designed, non-directional tread on the STT's. This employs a variety of features such as deep buttress lugs, a center traction zone that is aggressive and unique for intricate off-road driving. Armor-Tek3 Carcass Construction is a heavy duty implementation that is made of two radical polyester plies, and one angled ply to bring three plies of protection. This reduces impact breaks and bruising.
You should be able to find Cooper Discoverers for a little over $200. At the time of this review they were $228.00 at Sears Tires. Now on to the unbiased reviews.
We were pressed to find many negative online reviews for these Cooper tires. There were a few comments that stated that the tread life was poor, but the nature of off-roading dictates that the lifetime of the tire will depend on the aggressive aspects of the use.
Check out the different models of the Discoverer series from Cooper. The common theme from owners is that they are relatively quiet on the highway, and that they perform very well off-road.
