AWESOME!!!! I order mine too!! Not sure when the dealership will get them in, but I can't wait!!

By the way, I lied about the whole balancing/alignment mess I said earlier. They quoted me $660 and that would include them being put on and balanced for the first time! So excited!!

Nice! So a week ago I was hard pressed to find a member running AT3's, now there will be 3 more members running them by next week. $660 for 4 tires out the door is pretty damn good!

That's what I thought! If you don't mind me asking, how much did you get them for?

The place I'm going price matches so $165 + mounting so pushing $180/tire OTD. I've got a 52% credit on the set so overall I'll end up paying $360 for the set. With the warranty work, I had to get Cooper tires and I had to get them from this place so I found the best online price that I could dig up for them to match. 17's are expensive

that's pretty reasonable for 17's. I bought a set of 4runner 17's...then found out how much 17" tires were..Those rims now have a new home

I currently have a set of Cooper ATR's that ended up failing. Here's the thread where I came to the conclusion my old tires were shot. Cooper actually stepped up and pro-rated the credit based on mileage. I have 20k miles on the tires and they were rated for 50k so I got a 52% credit.

I hear ya... but I'm the dummy who sold off my 16" Baja wheels to get the 17" TRD Sport wheels. Expensive, but they look pretty sweet!

Those anthricite's are pretty damn sexy... but good luck finding them! I saw a set on here and I think they sold for something like $1,200 for the set

They're waaaay to expensive...didn't quite pay 1,200, but my bank acount definitely had a hole in it for a while. And then there was the TPMS sensors...this wheel tire thing is out of control expensive.

That's a great find. I just wished they stated which other tires they competed against.

It should be a good looking match up...with a little luck we'll see soon. Post pics when you get them on your truck. I'm curious to see how much better they will look on the GenI.

Found this quick blurb:

Wish the guy would post updates. It seems like most of the sites that tested the tires gave them good reviews, and then never followed up...no news is good news?

It was not a comparison, just individual tests in the print version. The link to the different tests can be found here:
