I've got the winter Rover storage season to mull over tire choices - I've decided on size 255/85/16. I've searched through the forum history and found a few who purchased the Cooper ST's - any updates? Cooper sells the tire as an enhanced traction All Terrain - how is the mud performance? How tough has the tire proven?
I've always run mud terrains on my overland trucks in the past - BFG and Goodyear MT's. For some reason I've always felt the Mud Terrains tougher then their all terrain counterparts. Having given some thought to past trips and the actual frequency I've run into heavy mud I've been reassessing my needs. The heavy weight of my 110 means I probably won't be aiming it at mud holes for recreation. Some improved wet tarmac grip in the heavy Rover would doubtless be a better compromise..... any thoughts?
