Cooper Discovery STT Tires

7 posts in this topic

Just curious if anyone has a pair of these on their rig. I have BF Goodrich's and love them but these caught my eye the other day. Might just have to switch brands. They are for sure more rugged and a lot more aggresive tread. Wondering if anyone has some or knows someone with them? How are they for wear? Just how bad is the road noise?

The are definately a mud tire rather than an all-around all terrain tire. If your BFG's are AT's then these will be quite a bit different. The rubber compound is softer and will wear faster. Expect around 40-50K miles out of these on a fullsize rig. They will be louder on the road, but not bad. There will be a hum to them but nothing horrible.

Coopers are very good tires. The STT's are their max off-road tire. They will be great in the snow, mud, dirt etc. There is a bit of siping so they will help a bit in wet and icy conditions but don't expect much. These tires also run large compared to most tires in the same sizes. I think thats a good thing. Price is pretty good too.

I use Goodyear MTR's which is a pretty similar design and in the same pperformance category as these and I love them.I think they work great in the weather we have as well as the conditions sportmen find themselves in.

Excellent tires, except for wear. I won't run coopers anymore as my main tires, they just don't last. I do have them on my explorer which I use for fishing/hunting, but no more on my everyday vehicle.

I will probably stick with bf then. I do allot of highway driving. I usually get 60000 out of my bf. That is one thing i liked about the coopers they are cheaper.

Yeah, I think you're better off. I had a couple sets of Coopers and liked them but I got 60,000 miles out of my last set of Michelins and always topped out around 40 with the coopers. I guess that makes em' more expensive in the long run.

Coopers are a softer rubber and won't last as long. You can buy a less aggressive set of Coopers that will last longer, but it depends what you're looking for.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
