As some of you may know, Cindy and I have been running 37×13.50R17 Cooper Discoverer STT Pro M/T tires on our 2012 Jeep JK Wrangler, also known as Rubicat and a much smaller 225/75R16 version of it on Renny, our 2015 Jeep Renegade and we’ve been so impressed with how well they perform, we’ve literally been chomping at the bit to get them in a size 40 for Moby. Well, I’m happy to announce that Cooper Tire is finally making these awesome tires in a 40×13.50R17 and we just got a complete set of 5 of them in today. Needless to say, you know what we’ll be working this weekend.
For those of you who aren’t aware of it, the Cooper Discoverer STT Pro is a replacement of its predecessor which was just called the STT. According to Cooper, this new tire is their most advanced and extreme to date and in addition to it’s new and more original tread design that features an aggressive “3-2 center rib design” and shoulder lugs they call “side-biters”, the new STT Pro comes with an all new “silica tread compound” and improved sidewall strength through heir “3-Ply Armor-Tek3. I should note that unlike the 37×13.50R17’s which come in an Load Range E, these new 40×13.50R17’s come in a softer Load Range C and that means they will offer a softer ride. Of course, what we love most about Cooper Tires is that they’re made right here in the U.S.A.
