Cooper Tires DiscovererThe 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.

Let's first get a feel for how real people feel about these tires


Positive Unbiased Cooper Reviews for Discoverer STT Tires:

  • "My Discoverer STT's performed very well in all conditions. I am what you'd call a weekend offroader (ok... who isn't). Last year I replaced my Toyo Open Country MT's with these Coopers, and I have to say these tires ROCK"
  • "Fantastic control and traction, rain or shine, highway or dirt, loaded or not. Quiet ride on the highway. These are a great value"
  • "The best tires I have owned. The ride was very smooth in my Ram 2500HD 4x4 with these Coopers. I have put 16000 miles on these now, and they have excellent tread left."
  • "I have never been stuck and seldom need 4x4. The bite and grip are crazy good. Loving these tires... I'm a huge Cooper tire fan now. Sometimes Cooper tire prices seem high to me, but I have to say it's worth it."
  • "I've owned these Discoverers for nearly 2 years and the tread is about half gone. I have roughly 40k miles on them. The thing about these tires is that they are remarkable in mud for an all-terrain tire. This tire is an all around good tire for the price. If you want a tire that is good on pavement, and you go off-road once a week or more, get this."
  • Good traction in rain, snow, mud. Good 'self-cleaning' tread"


Negative Comments for these Cooper Discoverer STT:

  • "I off-road very aggressively, and have used Cooper Discoverer in nearly all conditions. The only complaint I have is that they wore out fast"


Speed Rating and Tread Pattern on Cooper STT Tires

Cooper STT TiresThe 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.

Final thoughts on Cooper Tires Discoverer STT:

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.
