Buyin tires really soon.. Cant decide Toyo MT or Cooper SST??

I have read countless reviews and opinions on here and on tire dealers... I have come to the decide between Toyo Open Country MT and Cooper Discover SST Tek3.

I am running 275 70R 18 XD rockstars.. I currently have on Mickey Thompson ATZ and they really suprised me in life span, Nearly 50k, but I just want and need a little more aggresive off road tire sometimes.. Mainly winter.. But I am not switching up during the summer.. So these will be on year round, but for a MT tire I have heard many good and very few if negatives on each one.. I need tires like 2 months ago, but I have bit the bullet now long enough and found a sell on coopers but just hesitant on going thru with buying them yet. Toyo's everywhere I have seen are about $100-$200 more for the entire set, but for a potential better tire I dont mind $200..

Whats the veridct??

Another vote for the Toyos...that's all I run on my trucks. The Cooper is made of a softer rubber therefore life span is shorter.

Toyo MT SUCK in winter. Snow and ice are brutal. But I guess what can you expect from a mud tire??? I got 20,000 miles out of my set of Toyo's and I would not buy them again. A mall cruiser in the desert sure, they are a good looking tire. For my needs they did not fit the bill. Terrible snow & ice handling, terrible heavy towing.

I've got these on my truck right now, and I'm no too impressed with there snow handling. I had them sipped, and they do ok on the road. Something else to consider, is that when I put these on, I lost about 1 1/2 -2 Miles per gallon. Just something else to throw out there

Only 20k miles?? I consistently get 45 to 50k out of mine and I do quite a bit of towing...

I like my Toyo's so far, just wondering, have you guys noticed a right pull with the Toyo MT's? Im trying to figure out if it is my steering or the tires that are making my truck pull to the right.

@Raymond

Yes. I picked up some used tires (35 toyo MT) from my local go to shop to get me by for a couple of months and they were fairly worn, but good enough for non-ice/snow conditions on the streets and highways. I had just put in a new track bar, ball joints, rotors and hubs and brake pads (standard 2nd gen stuff!) The tires seemed to pull the right and as they continued to wear, the drift got worse. I then rotated them and it was good for a while with a slight drift and getting worse as the were wearing.

I was about to go pick up some Kelly TSR (Have had good luck with them before) and the guys at the shop said they had a set of the same tires that had been returned (as they did not fit the wheel wells).. These Toyo MTs were about 1 day old and they sold them to me for $260 a piece.

I noticed that my truck runs straight but occasionally I notice a rightward drift. I hope it doesn't get worse. Any opinions on this would be helpful. (I though it was just the 2nd gen issue!)

I have always siped my tires on all my trucks. It makes A HUGE difference, especially on ice. But if you run on a lot off road or gravel, they will wear down sooner.
