Not that big of a deal but it is something that needs to be noted and otherwise, it's a good choice too. I've not run a Cooper STT Pro in a 35 so it'd be hard for me to say for sure how it does with any real experience. However, if you see any snow and ice, I still stand by the fact that STT Pros perform the best in it of any MT I've run.

    I hear the radial pull is worse when putting it on your trailer vs taking it off.

    I have around 40k on my Trail Grapplers and the pull to the left has been noticeable for over a year. But they are wearing well. I donít know what I will run when itís time for new.

    I have a year and a half on my Toyo M/Ts, 37x12.50. Mostly wheeling and driving to wheeling. Not a daily driver. Couple of trips to Moab, couple of Rubicon runs, Fordyce, multiple trips to Big Bear, Calico, Cougar Buttes, etc. They have performed very well. No flats, no chunking, no radial pull. They took some weight to get balanced, and they do best at about 8 psi. Kind of expensive. I have no complaints and would recommend them.

    I was interested in Toyo since everyone says they donít balance them, I donít daily it so I may try them, thanks Eddie

    So Cooper doesnít make a 35 for 17ís in the STTPro. They used to before the pro model was released, aka the old STTís. Iím running the next closest in 315/70R17 and have been for several months now.

    I do not notice a pull related to the tires. To keep mine square on the road I canít run them anymore than 26 psi cold. They definitely seem to be a softer compound since Iím already seeing some chunks after only a few trails vs the Nittoís I had previously.

    Iím mostly happy with them in this size for the price I paid.

    35s on a 2019 JLUR as daily driver

Unlike Trail Grapplers, Coopers don't have the strong radial pull to the left and so far, I have found them to hook up much better on the rocks. Coopers are slightly more audible on the highway but nothing I would consider to be loud or noisy.
    Hi All,

    I am new to forum posting so i hope this finds everyone well. I have a 2019 JLUR. I had a 2.5" lift installed last month and now my 33s are lookin a bit small, not bad though. i have been toying with the idea of 35s (really want 37s but i hear that comes with a whole new can of worms regarding wear and tear, fuel mileage and regearing needs). my rig is my daily driver (70 mi/day) and i am proud of it. In looking i thought about Trail Grapplers but then i read peoples comments on the Cooper MTs and i'm very curious about them. i recently saw Eddie's video about his 37s and chatting about regearing and effects- great video!). He did mention that 4:10s in the JLUR were more or less sufficient to run them though. My question would be, can the rig take 35s without worry of mechanical failure? and realistically what that would do to the rig's drivability? Thank you for everyone's ear.

    Yeah you should be fine. However if youíre driving that much daily you might want to reconsider the mt, theyíre not known for treadlife and commuting. An AT would likely suit your needs better.

    Thank you very much Snboarder113- i know it sounds crazy but i really like the look of the MT. And regarding treadlife, if i can get 2 years out of them, i would be amazed- dont think i have ever gone more than 14 months in a vehicle without changing out shoes. also we have snow half of the year so the spaced out lugs, from what i understand, would track well in snow. its food for thought though. i'm still looking at my options. much appreciate your time sir.

    I live in Michigan so i can attest to the tread in snow. And while itís the best MT Iíve ever tried in snow. It still doesnít hold a candle to something like a duratrac. Good luck with whatever you end up with.
