Must be a new design they look nice. Nicer than the S/Ts currently on my truck. I hope they treat you well. Nice truck BTW.

Its too bad I'm done with Coopers on my truck. When 7 out of 8 tires develop sidewall cracking within 6-8 months and not want to warrenty them I lose confidence in the manufacturer and look elsewhere. "Made In USA" does not always mean quality.

That is why I will never use BFGoodrich again. I like the looks of the Cooper Discoverer S/T MAXX. I might consider those if they aren't insanely expensive. What is the best M/T tire out there that's cheap?

great pick! I am considering Discoverer St or STT
Did you look at going up a size(285/305)?
I used to run 305's on my truck before going up to a 315/70r17

Just a little update. i ran these for 14,000 miles and hardly saw any wear, and they performed great. were awesome in snow, mud, slush, hard pack snow, wet roads, dry...etc. i would have bought them again without thinking, but they dont have a very good size selection. i am running 35" STTs now on my new wheels

Scott, Have you ever run Dura Tracs in snow? I hate them. My truck skates, spins, and slides everywhere. Forget about stopping too.
I was wondering if the cooper STT's were any better?

they do really well for me. If you go to coopertires.com (I think it is) they rate them for snow and mud. I think they perform better than they rated them myself. Just yesterday I saw at least four other trucks with them on. We only had about 2" of snow yesterday though.

Pricey but they do great imho and an excellent tow tire as well.

Oh...never had the duratechs. did have some BFG's once and only once.

I looked at the ST Maxx from cooper, but I was hoping to go to 34-35" tires. Everything Cooper has in that size range would be too wide for my wheels, and my liking. I want a 34"-35"tall 11 wide, but Toyo MT/AT and Goodyear (MTR) are my choices, and they are 400+ a tire.
I know these Dura Tracs, have NOT impressed me in any situation! I got to get them off soon, or I am gonna pile my truck up.

Yeah 275 70 18 is what I have stock. I have even been looking at OEM 20" wheels. The stock tire with the 20" wheels are 34" and some change!
There are lots of 2011-2012 20's on Ebay with tires, but they are the stock Michelin tires (I am sure they are good tires for pavement) But my truck see's allot of dirt (I spend a lot of time hunting, fishing, firewood, and camping in the weeds).
