Discover S/T are great tyres - I ran a set of them for a couple of years on a Disco - only issue was their interesting handling in the wet on any kind of camber, I could provoke a four wheel slide out of them quite easily in certain circumstances - note on the picture the OWL is on the inside, the previous owner felt it would be to garish to have them on the outside on a Disco

Those ST Maxx tyres Myst has put on are much improved over those ST's you've got there Steve, I'd have them on my car if not for the horrendous cost and the idea of blowing one on somewhere like the GRR (an Aussie road notorious for blowing tyres) and having to replace it is frightening at about $4-450 per tyre while on a round Australia trip..

Cooper ST's - 245-70-16's ? Were the first tyres l had on my Hilux when l changed from the std wheels
I stuffed the side walls on 2 of em on one trip bush , l replaced them with 2 of the same , next trip l buggered another one ,
That was prob 9 odd years ago , maybe l was just unlucky , l think they are a better tyre now .

Hey all, these are the newer Cooper Discoverer ST Maxx, and (so I'm told) are a big advance in technology over the old Discoverer ST's. I've had ST's on previous cars and found them to be a little lively in their handling on wet roads.

I've been very lucky to be picked up by Exclusive Tyres (the Australian distributor for Coopers Tyres, Mickey Thomspn etc) as a blogger and reviewer over the next 12 months, so I'll be throwing a new thread up as an ongoing review of the tyres across their life. Initial impressions are good, handling seems very responsive and road noise and vibrations are minimal so far!

Yeah that's about what mine ended up, they always end up a lot heavier than you anticipate.
