Need HELP with tires!

I am looking to get new tires for my 06 xterra off road. i do not have any lift on it but i want to run 285/75/16 tires with the melt mod until i lift it 2 inches. This car is my daily driver and i take it off road every once in a while. I am look at either Falken Rocky mountain ATS tire http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/tir...ALINT&pc=18281

or the Cooper discoverer ATP tire http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/tir...ALINT&pc=11766

Which ones do you guys think will be a better choice?

I run the ATPs in 32s and I love them....put about 2k miles on them...great road manners, good performance offroad, I can't really complain.

Obviously as an all terrain tire, it isn't as good offroad as a mud tire, but it gets the job done and is very inexpensive...but good quality...which = value

I've heard good things about the falkens too...you have chosen pretty solid tires in my opinion

If you want some pics of the ATP and read my thoughts on them, check out these links to my threads (page 7 and 8):

I am very satisfied with their performance.

I had a buddy that ran those falkens on his taco, and they were some awesome tires... If i hadn't got a set of cooper discoverer st maxxs, I would have got them instead.

I have used the ATP tires in mud/water...They worked great. I did get stuck a few times in the sense that I had to rock back and forth and inch my way forward some to get out of the mud hole, but always manged to make it through, even when in mud/water up to the bottom of the door seams.

A big wheeling weekend I got to test them out...there was only 1 slick mud hill I couldn't get up on my 32s...handled just about everything else I threw at it with suprising results. Many of my difficulties I would also attribute to me being new to wheeling...but I was able to ride next to a SAS xterra on 37s without being too much of a limiting factor.

my buddies taco does great in the mud with those falkens... They clean out extremely well for an all-terrain, and handle themselves well in the deep stuff too.

since your wantin 33s, you'll be running a 285/75/16s... If your gonna go coopers, have u loooked at the st discoverer maxx? I mean both tires are within a dollar of each other. I swapped from stts to these st maxxs and there great man. I was sold after looking at reviews and couldn't find anything negative about them.

here they are on my rig




good luck bro, Imo opinion you can't really go wrong with anything that says cooper on it... Let us know what you get.

thanks i haven't looked at those tires yet. i love the look on the st maxx's you have so I'm gonna look into them but the only thing is if the one's from pep boys are good, I'm still reading reviews, they sell them buy 3 get one free so it saves some money. but I'm definitely gonna look at the st maxx. i also like the regular discoverer S/T, do you know how they are?
