    Had some 275/70/18 Cooper ST Maxx installed last week. Got to test them in a few different conditions over the weekend so I figured I would start my review thread. Absolutely love them so far. I wanted an aggressive looking tire that isn't too loud, lasts a long time, does well on wet roads and can get me anywhere I need to go and it appears so far that thats exactly what I got.

    Looks: 10/10. Have already received several compliments on how aggressive they look. Pictures online don't do them justice.

    Noise: 8/10. They are super quiet for such an aggressive design. WAY quieter than the Toyo's I had on my 1st gen. Even going 75+ on the highway they never got too bad.

    Wet Roads: 10/10. I drove in a variety of different wet conditions over the weekend and they performed flawlessly even on fresh wet roads. A few times I actually tried to hit the puddles that looked like hydroplane material and they just weren't having it.

    Off-Road: 8/10. I don't do much offroading, but I do have some pretty beat up dirt roads on the way to the farm. They handled great in the mud and they soaked up a lot of the small bumps and stuff that normally give me a headache.

    Ride Quality: 8/10. A little stiffer of a ride than the Michelin all terrains that I had on there, but I actually like it better. I feel less of the small bumps and cracks in the roads. No complaints at all with the ride quality. My g/f didn't notice a difference either, and that's saying something.

    Tread Wear: N/A. Haven't had them long enough to comment on this, but I will update after each trip to the dealer. From what I have read and heard, they are going to last a while. Took a trip up to Georgia over the weekend to pick up my buck mount, and they still look brand new.

    Gas Mileage: N/A. Will update this after I do a few tests. So far it seems like my mileage has dropped by about 1-1.5 mpg (which I obviously knew was gonna happen, just unsure how much), but then again I was towing the boat a lot over the weekend and driving into some hard wind. Will test them out in different conditions over the next few weeks.

    Will update with several pics this afternoon whenever I get the truck back from the Bilstein 5100 install. It's been dark and raining lately so the only pics I have as of now aren't that great.

    Updated with some pics. Really happy with how the truck looks after Bilsteins installed on middle setting. Slight rake, but still looks level.

    I've had st Maxx on my taco for some time now, tread wear is awesome. Stiff rubber, which makes snow performance dwindle slightly.... great offroad tho

    Nice! Is the taco your DD or is it your offroad truck? Luckily it never snows here where I'm at. My main concern was wet road performance since it rains quite often here in FL, and I was pleasantly surprised with how well they performed in that category.

    Thanks man! What others are you looking at? I was torn between these and the BFG KO2s for a while but decided to go with these since I ran into a good deal.

    Looking at these and KO2s atm. I like the way the Coopers look more though.

    Those things look sweet! If I did more offroading than I would have went with those as well.

    Had them on my Tacoma the past year. Good looking, tough 10 ply rating and they pull great.....couldn't get them to break traction. (Of course that was with a 4 cyl)

    Look great! Plan to go with the STT Pro like Sean just did, however, keep bouncing back and forth because I think these would be better for my Ak winters.
