I've read the reports on Tire Rack and a few other sites, but wanted to get an opinion on what most are buying for mostly street use when replacing the OEM tires? I currently have Michelin Cross Terrain and like them a lot, though they're expensive.

Thanks.

Cooper Discover ST's or M+S. My winter tires are Blizzaks.
These are modestly priced. Most of my Yota farm wears these, notably the M+S.


ST's

M+S-- also studdable. You'll see they're siped.

Anchorage, Alaska
1992 4Runner
Tuff Country Suspension/Bilstein 5100s/no torsion bar tweaking
Lifted 4.0"
22RE / 5spd / 4.10 / open diffs
15x10 powdercoated steel wheels, 3.75" backspacing
33x12.50-15LT Super Swamper TSL Bias @ 35PSI X 4 (street), 10-35 PSI X 4 (off road)

Fitment Problems: Significantly rubs (actually destroys) rear lower corner of front fenderwell in high speed whoops or off camber situations. Significant trimming corrects.

Wheels: No issues. Tough as they come.

On Road: Don't drive it on highway much but they howl like a pack of hungry wolves @ 60 and sound like an angry bear @ 35. I love it! White knuckle ride on icy roads, unstoppable in snow. Minor flat spots after parking overnight or longer on warm ground or warm tires. Subsides within 10 miles.

Off Road: Eat up wet/dry rocks and mud for breakfast...no chunking. The ickiest of the sticky. Virtually indestructible. Breaks off sharp ice and roots stumps with no damage. On loose dirt/silt hill climbs they dig like madness when forward momentum is lost but reverse pulls right back out of the hole 99% of the time. Forget about going anywhere in loose sand without significant momentum and wicked low air pressure.

Overall: Not for highway use!! 10k miles is a gracious estimate. if you want the ultimate in a 33" (actually measures almost 35) offroad tire...it's these or Boggers.
