Hey all,
Without wanting to start the great tyre debate yet again, has anyone any good or bad news/views on the latest Cooper ST/C's ?
I know that it's a bit like the 'ole "How long is a piece of string" question (I still haven't worked that out!) but any replies would be appreciated.

Glenn,
Purchased late November. Done 7,000kms including Vic High Country - including Blue Rag, Basalt Knob, Davies High Plain and some reasonably serious rock shelves at the back of Appin NSW. Have some small chips on the leading outside edge of one tyre that was spinning on a rock face. No lugs have been torn off. Traction is heaps better than the previous tyres and I'm not going to worry about the front locker I was considering. They seem to be wearing OK. They need a softer pedal on sand than A/T's and are noisier on the blacktop.
Richard.

Hi Richard.....

A diff lock is a whole lot more than a set of tyres could ever give you....
but i can also understand that you are saying you are quite happy with them....___________________________________

Voxon,

Understand that but at this stage don't believe the cost is worth it.
Doing the Simpson at Easter.

how long is a piece of string.
the answer to that is quite easy.
if you measure the distance between the start of piece of string and where it finishes you will have your answer lol.
oh yes we have sold a couple of sets of stc but i dont think they have been out long enough to tell yet how they are going will have to wait till they get up to 50-60000ks and compare to the st. only picture i could find that wouldnt
annoy/upset/confuse/stir any one

A piece of string is as long as it needs to be ,,just as the weight of a pull thru is as heavy as it needs to be,,,,,,,
