First off let me say, best tire for the money, hands down.

I have had these tires for 5,000 miles installed in December of 2010.

They are the 265/70/15

I was looking for a tire that would be good, on road (50,000 treadwear warranty) and off road. This tire has exceeded my excpectations in every way possible. They refuse to get stuck.

Pros:
Thick and wide tread lugs amazing in snow and mud
Self clean perfectly
Tread Wear, 5,000 miles still at exactly 16.5
Good in rain, hard to make them spin
Super Quiet
Look Great, get tons of compliments on the tires

Cons:
The amount of traction they provide may make you cocky and attempt an obstacle that your rig is not capable of conquering.

Not so great on ice, but what tire is.

That damn blue paint took a month to wear off.

All in all, an amazing value. For the 265/70/15 flavor i payed 139 per tire. Mounted and aligned out the door for 625.00

Nice write-up.

I've been a fan of Coopers for many years. What's their Treadwear # for a 50K mile tire?

Scroll to the bottom. Coopers.

I just picked up a set of Cooper STT's for my truck, 720$ for them. Not sure how they perform compared to my old Mickeys yet.

As for that blue paint just rub the tire with hot water and it will come right off with a brush, its water soluble but doesn't like cold water.

@ original ranger, i have a set of STT's on my rig right now, there not bad but they are noisy as hell. i'll be the first to tell you that they come at more of a price than just what you paid for them. ive replaced all four ball joints at least twice and both hubs at least once. they last a good while though i can say that much and they do go like hell in the mud and snow. they suck on ice and they can get a little squirrely in the rain but they arent too bad at self cleaning. they look cool but they came at a price, i dont plan on buying them again for my rig and unless your a serious off roader or have a pretty beefy rig i wouldnt get them.
