    About to get some new tires...gonna run 235/85/16 on stock steelies. Leaning toward the cooper discoverer at3's. Their weight is 43 lbs not bad for my 4 banger. I've checked the threads on that size and some others on the at3's. Tell me what ya think...thanks

    Why are you wanting to go so skinny? I see you are in San Deigo so snow is not an issue.

    I have been eyeballing the same size for the higher profile and military look. I will be interested to see the mileage difference since I have the same truck.

    I saw someone on here put on the duratracs in this size but they are super heavy, Lost close to 4 mpg's. The At3's weigh 43 lbs...not too bad.

    Unless you're doing offroading, take a look at the Hankook Dynapro ATM's in P rated tires. They're nice and light and pretty aggressive.

    I off-road where theirs a lot of sticks. Few friends have gotten their tires punctured, so not too sure how the P rated will hold up.

    The 43 lb Coopers aren't P rated?

    FYI, I've got the AT3s and I don't think I'd buy them again. They're certainly not a bad tire, but they're not the best either. They seem to have a wandering feeling on the road that seems to be pressure related. A few psi makes a BIG difference in how they handle. Maybe the narrow tires would be better but I'm not the only one who's complained about it. They also seem to be getting louder as they get worn in and I do rotate them religiously and am getting even wear so that's not the issue. Like I said, they're not bad tires, they handle wet and snowy weather very well, are very grippy on twisty back roads and look great. I just think there might be better options out there if you're in the market.

    No those coopers aren't P rated...

    Thank for that info Pugga, much appreciated. I would like to get the bfg's but they jump up to 49 lbs in this size, Iam gonna see what everyone thinks of the Revo 2's it's 42 lbs. Thanks again

    Just wanted to make sure. The 265/70R17's I've got are P-rated and it sounded light for an LT tire.

    Personally, I think the BFG A/T are a good tire but antique in the world of tires. For the price of them, I think there are better options depending on the terrain your truck sees.

    The Revo2's are pretty awesome tires! My dad had them on his Chevy and they seemed to wear very well, drove nice and lasted a long time.

    I think you'll do just fine with 235/85/16. Should do well in rocky terrain.

    And not "skinny" at all - just not as fat as other popular sizes. Should make for nimble and precise steering.

    There was a time - not too many years ago - when nearly every full-size pickup came with 235/85/16's on them!

    Got the bfg rugged terrains on....lost about 1-2 mpg's, took them on some trails and they performed great. I like the look too

    I just want to see how the 235's look on a 2nd Gen 4x4. I want to go to either a 255 or 245 for my next set, never considered 235 before.

    Bump - Any pics or reviews of Cooper AT3 in 235/85?

    I'm getting A/Tw's installed tomorrow in that size and am worrying a bit. The Cooper 235's are a lot narrower than my old blizzak 235's.
