    Nah...he doesn't mind me giving out his number. I just called him and told him to expect your call (if you decide to call him)
    He just told me that Cooper now sell directly to the public too, so they cut out the dealers.
    You can check out Tyrelife.coza, they have prices too.

    Thanks all for the replies. I can not believe the difference in pricing for the same product. from R3600 to R4800 per tyre! Cooper themselves are R4600 odd.

    Ive also had 3 warnings from experienced Overlanders and one tyre sales man who has coopers on his bakkie, now about them and their sidewalls.

    Any comments?

    Thanks again.

    I also had a warning from the salesman not to run my ST Maxx at lo pressure (sand driving) for too long: "The stiff(extra ply) sidewall will overheat and tire may fail."

    Not sure how true it is.

    I will personally not buy Coppers again if a problem persist they will blame the user.
    The price you pay for the Tyre's I will look for an alternative.

    Thats what ive been saying about BFG's. When I bought my 2011 Defender, i fitted BFG AT's. After about 8000kms one tyre on the right rear was chipping. Vehicle was checked on a wheel alignment machine and eventually the tyre was blamed.

    The rep came out and said there was no warranty as the tyre had suffered from abuse! Now forget everything else, how in the hell do you abuse one tyre on a vehicle and that vehicle is a Defender? - perhaps its a standard tyre manufacture strategy!

    This is why I have not touched another BF product since then.


    But now I am reconsidering as I have heard more negatives about the Coopers, especially their sidewalls, than I have about the KM3. Also the KM3 is about R500 cheaper per tyre. Is there a R500 difference? (i.e. is Cooper STT pro 12% better)
    I dont mind paying the extra R2500 for 5 far better tyres and for a different brand to BFG's but is that the right decision?

    I am using Coopers on my bakkie for the last 12 years now. Started off with STT for two sets and then to ST Maxx. Only one puncture. Been traveling to numerous other African countries. Under load for plenty of Kmís. I am happy with my coopers. Yes the new prices are high, so I might reconsider next time I have to buy. But that will only be in about a yearís time.

    I am with you Bassfisher
    Have been supporting the brand for 7 year without any problems and numerous of Africa trips, but after this happened and the comments they made on the report is just beyond me, so the quest is on for a new brand.
    I am considering the new APOLLO APTERRA AT2.

    Hi Peterbee

    Normal pressure front 2.4-2.5 and back 2.5-2.6 normal driving as I have been doing the last few years, like I mentioned this is only the one the others is fine and it is the LT spec as well.
