Not to thread jack but I'm sure this will help the OP too. What rotation pattern do you recommend? Found this on Tire Rack. What are your thoughts?

I agree that the Cooper Discoverer H/T Plus is a great tire for what it sounds like you do. I have done a ton of research and I am actually thinking very seriously about ordering a set for my 4x4 QC. As for your question about passenger tires....yes, the Coopers are "P" tires rather than "LT" tires. But so are the stock Goodyears. Actually, these particular Coopers, along with most if not all Cooper tires in this size, are XL (extra load) rated rather than SL (standard load) like the stock Goodyears. The alternative is "LT" tires. Nothing against them by any means other than they might ride a tad stiffer but the truth is that the majority of pickup trucks don't need them and don't run them. So yeah, no need to worry.
