    315/70r17 Cooper STT Pros

    My 35x12.50R17 Nitto Trail Grapplers are down to about 5/32 after about 40,000 miles and 2 1/2ish years. Im also seeing a lot of small cracks between the lugs as if they are drying out here in AZ. While I like the tire and its served me well, its hard right now to pay the price for them.

    Being that I want to stay no bigger or smaller than a 35, Im looking at these. The reviews here and the price point are intriguing. Will the 1/2 or so difference really be that big of a deal? Anyone else make this switch?

    I bet you won't even notice. I'm running the 315 Coopers and absolutely love them.

    I live in northern Utah, we see single digit temps and lots of snow, love my coopers in every condition that we get here. I run a 37x13.50. A 12.50 would probably be a bit better in the snow but I have no complaints.

    Nice, your gonna love them, I had 295/70 ,great tire in the snow. on slushy streets they can be a little slippery, but I think that's because of the wider tire.

    Good to know, even though we rarely get snow/slushy stuff in my part of AZ. Never know where I may end up traveling to. The Nittos being replaced were less than stellar during the last freak snowstorm I played in down here this winter.

    These are all mounted up now. The only visual part that I thought at first glance that I noticed was the tread width. It looks slightly narrower than the 35 Nitto Trail Grapplers. Im not complaining though.

    They definitely seem quieter than the Nittos and in the 30-40 miles Ive driven them today, no noticeable radial pull. Very happy with these and special thanks to Discount Tire in Sierra Vista, AZ for making another great tire buying experience!
