Cooper Discoverer AT3

Ive tried doing some research on these tires and I cant seem to find any solid info or reviews from other Jeepers out there - I have found plenty of Tacoma guys running them - I am looking at a set of AT3's and was wondering if anyone runs them year round.

I will be on pavement the majority of the time. My main concern is ice/snow traction in the winter months. They are not winter rated however the tread blocks are "siped"

I can get a great deal through a tire wholesaler. Only $160/tire CAD for a set of 255/65/17

Let me know what you think

I have not run them. But all the reviews on them are excellent. From what I gather, this tire bites harder than it appears. Visually it looks like a highway tire. But it actually works like an aggressive all-terrain offroad. That's what it seems from the reviews. Cooper makes great tires. I love them.

Just incase anyone was searching for these tires.

I decided to go ahead and purchase these tires in a 255/65/17. So far I am very happy with the ride, handling and grip.

I will re-post with tread wear and snow and ice traction

I've had them for about 2 weeks now. 265/70/17, 4 ply. The day i got them we got over 3 inches of rain, great on pavement, very smooth ride, tested them on wet grass climbing a pond dam, worked flawlessly. Recently took them on some rough trails, sandy mud loose rocks, still worked good. All +'s from me, and they look good.

Finally had our first snow fall of the season today, about 6-8 inches of fresh snow. I could hardly wait to pull the WK out of the garage and test out my new Cooper AT3's. I couldnt be happier with the way they performed. Excellent snow and ice traction for an AT. I had no issue stopping at icy intersections or climbing up snow covered hills. I even pulled an F150 out of the ditch after he lost control lol. Great all weather tire. Would definitely recommend these tires to anyone looking for a cost effective option.

Good to hear on the snow/ ice performance. It was 85 degrees here today, so I don't think I'll have to worry too much!

I had them on my Land Cruiser and loved them. They worked great on the trail and performed well in the snow too. The LC is a lot heavier than the jeep so there might be a difference there. Cooper makes great tires.

25000 miles and less than half wear on my 05 TJ. 265-75-15. Great tire.

I just purchased a set of these for my 05 WK. I really like them so far. They handle really well and seem to do well in the snow.

According to DTD, Cooper has discontinued the P285/70-17 size. That sucks.
