In my opinion the BFG Mud ta's are hard to beat. Between myself and a few friends we have owned every brand and type of mud tire, and I keep coming back to Bfg. Toyos are good, Super Swampers are ok. It just depends on how much offroad to highway driving you will be doing.

Hopefully those work out for you, but I would not use a Cooper if it were the only tire available. Cooper is alleged to be as bad of tires (responsible for as many deaths) as the Firestones from 10 years ago. The 8 deaths of the USU students were found to be caused by the Cooper Tires: http://hjnews.townnews.com/articles/2007/03/20/news/news02.txt Do a search on Google of "Cooper tires suit," it is incredible to see the number of deaths direcly linked to the lack of using the nylon band to avoid tread separation. I would guess that many manufacturers have several cases but this article is startling: http://www.tiredefects.com/defective-cooper-tires-unsafe-production.cfm

Obviously these cases are fairly rare, but the practices of the company seem apparent that quality is an afterthought.
