Four Wheeler, Overland Journal, Consumer Reports, you name it this tire has won it.

If you don't consider this tire to be aggressive then you won't be happy with anything except a mud tire. Period.
"Seriously"! "The AT3 isn't aggressive"! Sorry, but if it suits your needs, that's cool.

I've used dozens of tires and it's not so much that I have a love affair with Cooper as it is that I'm just sick of idiots claiming this is a highway tire and it's not aggressive.

If you look at this tire and you don't see the aggressive open tread oozing out of it then you're either legally blind or a dumb*$$, one of the two. Yet...the comments keep coming. It's rather comical.

It has a 60k mile warranty for p/metric sizes only.

I look at the tread and see a semi-aggressive tire that I would not prefer to use in muddy off road conditions, which is my type of terrain.

LMAO, "definition of aggressive"! "Aggressive open tread oozing out of it"! That's as asinine as ""hardcore AT"! You really need to stop WX, you're getting your DNA all over your keyboard and making it sticky!

I'm glad to see others see the AT3 for what it really is, a rebranded street tire and aren't buying the hype rabidly regurgitated from one misguided poster!

I'll give you that it is very good on the street but I still have yet to see it on any vehicle on the trail and that is the true testament to any tire's off road capabilities. Seeing as how it's on the lower end of the price range as well, that in of itself would make you think you would see more of them but I guess even the general public in the areas where I wheel see that tire for what it really is.

I guess some of us have a different idea as to what is "aggressive" and I have come to realize that if we don't buy into one poster's definition then the personal attacks start flowing. that's what happens I guess when you go "all in" and devour every word from the manufacturer.

Using the term "hardcore AT" pretty well tells the story though as those of us that actually wheel our rigs are able to see the AT3 for what it really is, a rebranded street tire.

First you have to ask yourself what you need and want your tires to do.

I was at work today and talked to a guy who has them on his Chevy Colorado and he had nothing but good things to say about them. He had close to 30k on them and they were barely worn, also he said they perform very well in winter conditions and the little off-roading he has done.
That being said, if you want a well balanced and versatile tire they are very nice. If aggressive is what you're after for looks and an what not then look elsewhere. From what I've seen and read these tires are a bit more than just a rebranded street tire. I wouldn't hesitate to give them a try after what I saw today.

I'm looking to upgrade my 33x13.5.15 Baja Claws to 35x12.5x15's as these just look too small.
