Those dakota's should be a pretty good tire... I mean there made by cooper. The thing with mud-terrains though is they don't like the roads. and you absolutely have to keep em rotated.

The orginal st is a great tire. A little loud for an all-terrain, my dad ran them on mazda b-4000 4x4. Did awesome in the snow and the mud. I talked with a local tire shop and told them I was lookin at the st maxxs. they told me there a better tire than the st. On the st maxxs cooper took the outside cleats from the stt and re-worked the st pattern in the center. Which makes it a hybrid all-terrain-mud-terrain lol. Whatever they done its a killer tire.

yeah they look pretty good and you can't beat the price especially with 1 free haha. what do you recommend you rotate the tires at for M/T, 5000k? and i like the st maxx a lot its just like i said the one free definity is a real pull and the shipping cost is another 200 to me for the coopers

have you thought about goodyear wrangler duratracs? for snow they will be the best out of all the tires you have listed, I had over 30k on mine when i sold them and they had over half tread still, they look agressive but have great road manners, the falkens have awesome reviews, only bad thing i have ever heard is they look wimpy lol

no i have not looked into them i might. again tho the thing that is really pulling me into the definite is the buy 3 get one free. that really helps cause my tire funds are tight. but i am definitely going to look at them they look good. and yes the falkens do look a little wimpy i agree. thats one thing keeping me away from them

ya dura-tracts are a good bet too... All are good options imo just depends on the look and what you wanna spend, u know?

As far as rotatin mud-terrains go, at the most every 5,000... Ive got a jeep buddy that rotates his km1's every 3,000.... the jury is still out on it but his tires have been on that jeep for about 3 years daily driven and are wearing awesome. Now i ran my stts to the 5,000 mark and chewed through them in about 30,000 miles.

ShiftingSkys will become famous soon enough
I personally run the 305/70/R16 Falken High peaks and love them. Does extremely well in the mud as previously stated the falkens clean themselves very well. They ride very good-Look good and were not that much cost wise.
