    So after ready many threads on snow tires, I decided on the Cooper M+S. I wanted the 265/75/16, E load.

    Soooo, I went to my local tire dealer today, and they tell me Cooper has discountinued the M+S series. Anyone know if this is true?

    I asked for the Mastercraft Courser MSRs, but they said they wouldn't have any until mid October or later.

    Of course, they suggested the Michilen LTX with the Green X technologu as a substitute. But at $239 a tire, I decided to hold off for the moment.

    I think the guy was givin me a line of BS on the Coopers and MCrafts. Dunno... ?

    I dont know but the Coopers up here in the north country had a great reputation...I just googled Cooper M&S and a ton of online tire stores are still listing them.

    I found them online too. I asked him if he was sure they were discontinued... he said yes. ANd now that I've thought of it more, maybe I misunderstood and he meant their particular chain of stores was not carrying them anymore.

    I haven't checked other dealers in my area yet.

    $143 wholesale from my distributor, which claims to be the largest Cooper Distributor in North America. And they have hundreds of them.

    Had a set of Cooper Discoverer M + S 245/75/16 E, They are sold as Cooper Discoverer ST. Nice tread. The last set I got 85,000 miles out of them. Bought them at Farm & Fleet

    The coopers are the best winter tire I've ever experienced! We just bought some for the 98 and had to wait almost 2 months to get them because they were on "backorder"? So if you are thinking about getting some before winter, don't wait too long:D

    I'm sure the M+S and STs are different tires. F&F was the ones that said the M+S were discontinued. I haven't had time to check other dealers in my area yet.


    That's why I was trying to get them now. Trying to beat the fall rush, and didn't want to get caught without because stock was depleted.

    On the other hand now, I just found another truck yesterday. If I buy it, it will end up being my plow truck. They said it had new snow tires put on last fall... so we'll see.

    When I went to buy them they told me the same thing, Cooper Discoverer M+S, have been discontinued. So I went back to the tire rack to check out these new Cooper Discoverer S/T tires, and guess what? Cooper Discoverer M + S 245/75/16 E S/T ( stamped right on the tire), same tread design, same M+S, its just that they added the S/T.
