After last blizzard I can now say that Cooper S/T tires kick serious ass.

    Decided to try out the Coopers this summer on the Blazer just to see how they do. So off came the BFG T/As.

    So far, best tires I've ever used, I thought for sure with the more aggressive pattern that they would be noisy but they aren't. Thought they would wear faster, but they haven't.
    Sand, Mud and Snow? pfft.

    Bringing the Sport Trac home from parents as an Xmas gift and first thing it's going down to the shop and getting S/T-Cs put on.

    Had the S/T-C's on my work truck, and they were the absolute worst tires I've ever owned. Wore out in 22k miles, wet snow they did decent, but cold snow you were better off having ice skates on the truck.

    Went with Yokohama Geolander A/T-S and its night and day difference.

    The tread design had huge problems with shedding mud too, it would clump up like this

    And it would be sliding like crazy, dont have any of those problems with the Geolanders

    hmm, must be a difference between the S/Ts and S/T-Cs then. Mine are plowing through the deep shit like it's nothing and shed mud like that with no problems.

    Time to research the differences before I buy a set of Cs. Damn.

    shit, good thing you replied. ST-Cs are more a specialty tire for gravel use with chip/cut protection and has a nylon overlay so more stiff. much lower life too.

    That would have pissed me off. Thanks. :big grin:

    Yeah, the C stands for chip resistant. They are fucking worthless, I drive on gravel road/scorio all day and they are horrible.

    They are good on 1/4 ton pickups but not on the big boys
