hi dave, i have had coopers st for over 10 years, travelled all over Aussie with only 1 puncture, from a nail, also got over 80,000kms out of them, i would say the stt would be just as good, they are more mud etc. mark

Hey Dave, I'm using MTZs and find them great, Just remember mud terrains are a softer compound so will wear a bit quicker than all terrains.
GU RULES!!

Ive got wrangler MTR's, had the original model did 80k and only had one puncture which was a pop rivet :-(..
Ive got the new wrangler MTR model with the kevlar sidewalls, they are excellent so far on and off road...
they are expensive, but i luckliy bought them when goodyear had a sale on in Nov last year.

As you have asked for advice on a muddy I can assume noise is not an issue or bitumen grip/

So we've been testing the new Goodyear MTR with Kevlar on two our our vehicles for the last four months. Operating across the South Australian outback, the Limestone coast beaches and visiiting our commercial clients in the outback they have not missed a beat. Certainly noisy on bitumen and definately less grip than our benchmark tyre the Bridgestone D694 but the two tyres have different lives and capabilities.

We have a set of Duratracs coming for test on our Grand Cherokee so that will be interesting but I cannot comment on them yet

If you want a very capable and to date very well wearing tyre then the MTR with Kevlar should be on your short list.

For information we've been running them at 30 psi on bitumen and they are working and wearing very well. Off road we run our normal sand and rock pressures, 16 and 26 psi respectively

Regards
RobA

Avoid Cooper tyres like the plague!
I couldn't have had a worse run, or more problems with both supplier & distributor if I tried.

G'day Dave. I have had the Wrangler MTRs for about 3 yrs and 60000km, still 6mm of tread depth and no puntures, lots of varied terrain (regulary aired up and down) no complaints (NOTE mine are the pre Kevlar model).

I have friends with Mickey Thompson MTZs and they have also been a great tyre, a little bit softer than the MTRs ie quicker wearing on hard stuff and rocks.

cheers Aaron
