Cooper Discoverer 195 R15. I have been looking for a 27" skinny off road tire for my Brat when I get the lift done and I came across some barely used Coopers and I was thrilled to find that they measure 27 inches in diameter and they are narrower that anything else I've found in a 27" tire.

They make a 14" all terrain as well all the way down to a 26" (and up)
I was gonna pick up a set as they are the same size as the street tires I have on now (195/75/14) But the $$$, Swampers are cheaper and more agressive.
At least new.
You found used. if they are in good shape and gotten for a deal, then good score. :)

Is $175 for a set of four with less than 100 miles on them a good deal?

I got a set of 27" Kumho MUD-terrains w/50 miles
mounted on pretty 14" wheels for $300 delivered :-p

Too bad they discontinued these, because they're unstoppable in slop.

A/T tires will prove to be nearly worthless in less than ideal conditions offroad.
Though, the Low Range of the BRAT will make you think otherwise, if you're new to dual range Subarus.

I would say thats a very good deal. :)
By the time it's mounted and balanced that would pretty much cover only one new one.

I had these same tires (R14) on my '83 lifted (4/3 BYB) wagon. They were great! I did have to trim the fenders a tiny bit to prevent rubbing. The car lived in Missoula and Bozeman and now live w/ its new owner in Kalispell.
