    I have 27K+ miles on my KO2s and it’s about time for replacement. I’m kind of thinking about going with Cooper STT Pros. I like the aggressive look, but only occasionally go off-roading.

    I do like the way the KO2s ride on the highway, but they started getting loud around after 18K miles.

    I can live with a little noise, but don’t want a significantly rougher highway ride or drop in wet pavement traction since I put a ton of highway miles on my truck.

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    I'd look into the hybrid tires opposed to all out mud tires.

    The STT pros are very loud. The KO2’s are silent by comparison. I have 37x12.50 Ridge Grapplers currently. They are very quiet for as aggressive of a tread they have. They are marginally louder than KO2’s but it’s not noticeable.

    Thanks Pacific Wheel! I went with the Cooper STT Maxx. I really like the way they look and they ride smoothly. Sorry about posting this in a Gen 1 section, but all Raptors have the same size tire from the factory and this is the only dedicated tire section.
