Well there's plenty of info on this board for you to make an informed decision based on your own driving habits/environment/economic status etc. That being said, Coopers are made in the USA and I believe Hankook is manufactured & owned by foreign interests. I know, lotsa folks will say they want cheap/quality/availability for their tires and buying the few 'made in the USA' quality tires is a drop in the bucket when viewing the big picture.
I like my Cooper AT3s and would like to think that my purchase helped keep a few more workers employed here in America. I know, sappy to some but important to me so GL with your decision.
