2002 Wrangler TJ
I didn’t change anything else from stock. The Axle’s are stock the Brake Calipers are stock the steering has not been touched other than the Steering Stabilizer Shock . The reason for this is.. I never wheel this Jeep in the Mud or Rock Crawling. I’m sure there are people that will disagree with the set up, but for me.. It worked on my 1979 Jeep CJ with 38 inch tires.. and never had the first problem back then. This is a street only Jeep and i am pretty easy on my vehicles. It drives better than most would expect.. Very strait and comfortable for a Jeep.. I mean as comfortable as a Jeep gets.

How long do Cooper STT pros last?
While generally tires that fit in the same competitive set as the Discoverer STT Pro get around 30,000 to 40,000 miles if you’re lucky, we’d say that number is more accurate here for those with extreme off-road use.
Are Cooper tires better than Goodyear?
What brand of tires is better, Goodyear or Cooper? Across their product line both Goodyear and Cooper offer mid-level quality tire models. … For example, Goodyear offers some very good quality tire models, some which are average quality, and others that are quite frankly very poor quality. The same goes with Cooper.
Is Cooper STT pro good in snow?
The Discoverer STT Pro simply lacks enough siping and biting edges to be usable on packed snow, and especially on ice. In these conditions, the tires slide around and don’t give the driver enough bite. Yes, they are usable for driving on unpacked snow, but you won’t encounter those conditions often.
