Late 2006 there was a recall involving a bunch of Cooper tires, the STT being one of them, for faulty web belt coat stock.

Essentially the steel belts were corroding and causing the tires to come apart.

I doubt it is relevant to currently produced tires, but if you find a screamin' deal on closeout new or barely used take-off Coopers, Caveat Emptor.....

Just FYI.

I used them myself. I could go places in 2WD that would have been a struggle with any other tire in 4WD. They were great. EXCEPT for the wear, I got 15000 miles out of them and they were bald before I changed em out. If they wore better I would never run anything else. They were also a load range E tire.

Yessir, any Cooper dealer can check the DOT #'s and make sure the tires are OK.

Didn't mean to post a panic type thing, just letting people know...

I have about 10K on them they are showing some wear, but they look like they have another 20K in them at this point. Still quieter than the BFG AT's. They are getting louder, though. I don't mind a loud tire. Have had TSL's on several trucks.

over the next 5 to 7 thousand miles they will wear quickly, oh and my 95 V10 2500 4x4 regular cab long bed automatic ram weighed in at a skinny 5200+ with a 1/4 tank of fuel and me in it, i weight 300 lbs.....so throw on another 400 for the diesel.....that makes it 5800+ with a full tank of fuel.......D-range tires would of been fine, and i towed ALOT of stuff...

Kinda scared to go back into this conversation but here goes. Using the specs supplied in the very first post of this thread the weight rating of the D rated tires he's asking about are 3300 pounds. Multiply that by two tires gives you a front axle weight 6600 pounds max. By your own post you are saying that the weight of a no load truck is 5800 pounds. This only leaves 800 pounds worth of load before your over. This doesn't even take into account those of us with the heavy bumpers, which I did ask Ranchand about the exact weight of mine and it is 290 pounds factory weight. I've added a few things to mine so it runs a little heavier. this leaves you give or take about 500 pounds left before you max these tires out. So now if you put any kind of load in the bed of your truck to include a goosenck trailer you are adding additional weight to the front axle. To close for comfort in my world.

I would also assume that since I have rolled across scales empty per say at almost 7000 pounds, 6870 to be axact the last time. You were probably running stock size tires and wheels, the tires sizes being talked about here are much heavier and have to be taken into account in this weight limit. In my weight is also included a full tool box as well as a back seat full of more tools.

Not trying to say that D rated tires won't wrok for our truck but they don't leave enough margin for safety in my mind and when they blow they go quick.


Have to put a correction in here. I had the front axle stuck in my head and wasn't thinkin about the fact that were talkin about total truck weight. So that does open up some more margin for safety but considering that by far the biggest majoriy of the truck weight is on the front axle not much more.
