Couple new shoes

I needed a couple new tires for the back..Here are the stockers with 41,000 km on them. Not much left.


about 4 mm i think.....the fronts still have about 8.

I got these and the rims from a guy here..They just put new tires on another pickup that was recently totaled off..so he said make him a deal..i haven't decided what i want to pay him yet..but i'll make it worth his while. Anyone try these shoes out yet?..they are the same size as stock and should chew alot better than the stockers.


They even came with the center caps and TPMS i guess..no idiot light on when installed.

I have a set of these for my Mazda. These are great on-road/off-road tires. I've had them through rocks, sand, and mud -- no problems. I also had these on my work truck, which is what gave me the idea to buy them for my own vehicle. You can't go wrong. Off-road, they chew, and on pavement, they're pretty quiet.

One thing I'll note is that on my work truck, a heavily loaded GMC half-ton, they were okay in the winter. Definitely not winter tires, but not too bad. On the other hand with my Mazda, the size is 31x10.5, and the truck is relatively light. It gets pretty squirrely on any kind of ice. I suspect that's the case any time you put a fairly fat tire on a light truck. I just put my stock Goodyear tires on for the winter after I got them siped. Not great, but a bit better.

The GMC was no real problem, though. Pretty good in the snow on lease roads. I think the size of the tires on the GMC is stock, and that's the big difference. So you should have no trouble on your truck. I think you'll be very pleased with the Discoverer S/Ts.

If you do a search, you'll find lots of reviews. They're very popular tires in Australia, and are sold in the US under both the Cooper and Mastercraft names (Mastercraft Courser C/T, I think).

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
