Always been a fan of Coopers and really like the new AT3 but I went with the Hankook because of size constraints. They had what I wanted where as Cooper didn't.

I'm running 255/60-18.

DynaPros- love 'em in my 265/65/17 size, plus they have a rim/bead protector the AT3's don't have.

AT3's for me! Ride great and fairly quiet. Got mine for $149 CAD Each, 265/70-17. Very pleased with them paired with my OME HD lift.

Well to me the best deal in an AT for the WK is the General Grabber AT2 in 245/70-17 for a non lifted vehicle....$132 each from the tire rack...hard to beat that. And it drives great on them.

AT3's for me as well.
Done about 55,000 Klm's on them now and probably have another 50,000 Klm's left on them.
Great grip on all surfaces except for sticky clay.

Cheers, Craig

I'm due for some tires this fall/winter. I was leaning towards coopers but I must say the grabbers that Lou has, look pretty good too.
