I am thinking about fitting Cooper STC's to my 100 series with split rims. Any advice ?

I have them as my bush set of tyres. Very pleased with them. For the record, I have ST up front and ST-C up the back. I was driving thru mud the other month and had a look at the tyres. The ST was all blocked up with mud whilst the STC tread was still clear (wider tread). I am pleased but this probably isn't the forum to be asking. Everyone has their own opinion and to warrant their cost of tyres for themselves, seems to have a go at every other brand!
Cooper do admit though that being a softer compount you won't get the mileage around on the blacktop but dirt roads are what they have been made for anyway. Good luck with it all.

I ran ST's and ST-C's on my last vehicle (tubless, not Split rims) and was very happy with the rate of wear and mud clearing capability on both tyre sets. The ST-C does wear noticably faster, but chipping & damage at the shoulder was substantialy less.

The only concern I had was the significant side wall wear that these tyres displayed. However, considering the amount of time I spend with the tyres at 15psi or less, I guess any tyre would have the same problem.
