      Fair enough, i stuck with 762 when i replaced a pair so haven't used the 764, the noise doesnt bother me at all.

        How will mud terrains go on the road in the wet? I am assuming horrendously compared to a h/t a/t

            Really good i have found, the missus drives it and the tyres give me plenty of confidence. Block tread seems to make aquaplain difficult to achieve as well.

              As above. Cuts water really well in heavy rain.

              If you buy Coopers though, expect to die.

                  doesn't really matter - by the time you've done 40,000km on any mud tyre they're fucked and need replacing. Still have 10mm tread, but they cause vibrations, rattles, wobbles, massive amounts of noise and the rubber goes hard and lose their grip even on the road. I've had Bridgestone muddies, Mickey Thompson MTZ, and a few sets of Maxxis Bighorns. Furtherest I've ever managed to go is 60,000km before chucking them out - they still had 6-8mm tread left. My experience says buy the cheaper ones and replace after about 40,000km unless you like drivig on 50c pieces. You can normaly get some young muppet to buy the shagged tyres for a few hundred as well.

                  They're generally very good in heavy wet weather - standing water is no problem because of the massive tread voids making aquaplaning almost impossible.

                    I replaced mine with 8-10mm of tread after 70k km, then sold them for $400 with our the rims.

                      Ended up with the Federals because BFG weren't in stock.
                      No. Driving an esky along the footpath will be the end humanity. This must be stopped.

                          Coopers have a reputation in the top end for sidewall failures at highway speeds. Plus unless you live in a capital city they won't warrenty them at all

                            I have a few mates with the federals, 40,000 ks would take 4 sets of tyres. They are a good thing but even as a 2nd car the wear is significant.

                            Coopers -just goes to show with enough good marketing you can sell anything.

                              coopers are also a cunt to balance.

                                105 Landcruiser + 35" Cooper ST Something = aquaplane city. The cruiser has every accessory imaginable bolted onto it so it isn't a light weight.
