You have heard it first here.

Cooper Tyres have just finished shooting a TV commericial. The commercial was shoot at Braidwood on the Great Divide Tours trainning propterty. The commercial will only be seen on regional area TV.

I was not there for the shoot so can't say what happened but it is about there new range of 4WD tyres. If anyone sees the commerical let us know.

Whats the point then, if its only going on regional TV?? Wouldnt be STT's, they wouldnt be a farmers friend I wouldnt think?

The New STT's are soft as bubblegum - not long lasting.
You heard that first here. (PS Ive seen em)

Agree.. Lightweight trucks I think they would rock, but fullsize cruisers/patrols etc I think they will work well, dont get me wrong there, they will be like the Silverstone MT117s - work excellent, but wear faster than something I cant think of that wears really really fast .. ;P

Truckster,

Not sure what they would be, and have heard that they are soft. Only time will tell.

G'day,

guy in our club with a 4.2 GU had his ATs replaced under warranty about 6 mths ago(?) Cooper dealer replaced them with 5 STTs at no charge. Must see how they are going. You mention wear being the main drawback, guess that's par for the Coopers. Were you able to establish the main driving traits/conditions that may have triggered the wear or was it no different to the average off roader?

Any soft rubber will wear out fast on the road..

They are softer than BFG/MTR's by a fair wack, thats when twisting the lugs.

Hi Wayne,

So why show the ad only on Regional TV when the warranty only applies to city based fitment (maintenance)? Well that's my understanding.

I have Coopers on my GU so I'm not knocking the tyre, just questioning the advertsising logic.

Hugh,

Budget, Vic said that it was going to cost $100,000 just to go to regional.

City TV would cost a bomb.

dont believe cost would be a factor they already spend heaps with full page ads in mags and they have had other ads on tv for ages

Blokes,
I don't reckon the all-singin'-all-dancin' warranty applies to the STT anyway.......there's no way the STT would last anywhere near 80,000klicks unless it was driven only in a straight line on a bed of cotton wool the whole time!!! hahaha
My ST's are soft enough and if i had my time over i wouldn't have bought them. It's MTRs that I'm saving up for now (unless something else happens in the meantime to make me change my mind).

As an IT pro I have found the daily update on the prices of lupins, cattle, and john deere series tractors with air-seeder bars and metre change rollers very informative. I dont think id be where I am today without it.
Certainly havent seen any new coopers ads though.

How can they say they are just being released when a friend has had a set on his Patrol for a couple of months?
He has since swapped them (at no expense) for something else (can't remember what) as they constantly had small rocks and gravel stuck in the tread which then flew out and chipped the daylights out of the vehicle. They are also pretty soft compound too.
