Awhile back we announced a partnership with OutHEREadventure.com & Cooper Tire regarding a long-term test of the STT Pro off-road tire. We are well on our way into the testing, having run them for several thousand km’s already. Thousands of those km’s have included several long-distance trips – off-pavement on gravel, rocks, shale, mud, dirt etc., and while towing trailers at various tire pressures.
So far they still look and feel new! Comparing to our previous Goodyear Duratracs of the same size (which we liked) we are enjoying the extra traction without any noticeable increases in road noise. Something unexpected was the awesome on-road traction, which gave us confidence on the twisty canyon roads while towing a 3500lb trailer, AND with the Sequoia’s front swaybar disconnected. We did not expect this performance from such an aggressive off-road tire. Rad.
Although not specifically designed for compact snow and ice, we are looking to seeing how they hold up as we head into our fall and winter trip season – including the Expedition BC group trip to the mountains in October!
