I may have the opportunity to get hold of some 31-inch ST’s off a guy from work real cheep or maybe free as he is thinking about upgrading to 33- inch Muddies shortly.

The ST’s have 20,000 on em, and yes they do have chipping on the outside LOL Go Cooper!!!.

I Currently have Cooper AT’s With 42,000 on em, with some battle scars on em, the odd half a Lug Ripped off and a chip hear and there too ( I suspect mostly my fault as I am fairly slack with adjusting pressure)

So you are thinking why the F**K do you want chipped ST’s

1. Thay are Cheep or possibly Free with 20k on em
2. They are 31’s I currently have 30’s ( No 31-inch AT or ST’s in stock when I brought mine so got the 30-Inch Cooper AT’s) and they are and have been a excellent tyre as far as I am concerned.

So I am just after your thoughts’s on whether it’s worth taking the ST’s or just keep my AT’s?

Exploder,
Do you have the cash to buy a second set of rims to put these muddies on!! This way you can have the best of both worlds.

Humm.. Yes but if I was going to do that I would put some 32’s on.

Yes I will think about it but.

I have never really been one to have 2 sets of rims and tyres, as I don’t have a hugely lifted 4WD or do any Hard/ Extreme stuff, I use mine for trips and the odd 4WD session around the Perth aria and changing rim’s over just to Go 4Wding is a bit of a pain.

The other thing is I will most lily be selling it at the end of the year so going for a second set of rim’s is a bit pointless.

Take the ST's. Yeh they may have some chipping around the edges but if you do reduce pressures on rough roads surely they will be better than At's off road. My ST's do have chipping but apart from that i think they have excellent performance. The chipping is a side effect of a hard compund that produces good puncture resistance.

Being the scrouge that I am, never say no to a good deal.
Even if you don't end up using them, you could always sell them and if your conscience pricks, give him a slab out of the proceeds :-0.

I had heaps of problems with my STs, but even I would take them for nothing.
At least you will never have to try & get them to honour their so called "warranty"
