I've been looking around for some new tires and decided on the Cooper Discoverer STT Pros.
While calling around today I found a shop that had the Pros for $298/piece (295/70) but also had the STT for $200/piece.
Thoughts?

I originally liked the STT a little more but the Pros have really grown on me the more I've read.

Thanks Boosted, I'm thinking the same thing.
I wouldn't have thought about the STT but for 1/3 less is kinda hard not to.

I love my STT tires. There not loud they ride good on the hwy no uneven wear. Off road there even better no chunking and great traction (in rocks) I don't do mud and I haven't been in snow yet. Im running the 37-13.5/17s they work for me. If I were to change it would be sticky red labels for off road. I'm bummed ifthe previous post is correct about them being discontinued :(

Why bummed? The STT Pro's are better.

We have a couple of people that are running the Cooper Discoverer STT PRO at our office that have been very impressed with them.
Hey DT, since Cooper has discontinued the STT what happens when I have to cert one of mine out for a tear in the sidewall? Do you upgrade me to the STT Pro?

Great question.

In the event the registered tire (or tires) is discontinued or not available, a tire of similar value will be substituted. You can, however, pay the difference for which ever tire model you would like if it's substantial.

I've been running the STT Pro's since October and i love them. They completely blew away the duratracs i was running before. The grip the rocks better, eject mud better, and look awesome. The winter performance was also much better than i expected. I feared the worst going from a great winter tire like the duratracs to the STT Pros, but am pleased to report that they are great. Maybe not as good on the hard pack or ice, but much better than even the stock rubi tires were. Definitely a great tire.

Oh and Discount tire was awesome as always and had my tires in almost a week earlier than expected so i could attend an off road event. When it comes time to order up, definitely give Discount Tire a call.

Thanks for your kind words. Glad we were able to meet your expectations.

Also thanks for posting your experience with the Cooper STT Pro Tires.

I too am looking for 4 new tires in the 37x12.5R17 range and really like the PROs. Thinking the D range ones (37x12.50) over the E range ones (37x13.50)... running on ProComp 9x17s...

I think we have to qualify that statement. The Pro may be a better dedicated mud tire but I believe the STT was a better all-terrain that was slated toward the more aggressive.

As for me an aggressive AT tire was exactly what I need since much of the year I have to deal with snow and ice. I refuse to put a mild AT on my jeep and driving mud tires on ice or wet is out right dangerous.

The STT was a tire that filled this gap in the market. The Pro is just another mud tire.

Toymaster,
I kinda agree with you about the STT looking like a better tire for a daily driver. I thought the same thing when comparing the tread design. That being said, I just got a set of STT PRO 315s yesterday for my daily driver
