    Hey guys these cooper at3's are absolutely amazing. There is zero road noise and I do all kinds of driving highway and city. I don't feel like I'm rolling over around corners like i did with the Grand Trek AT20 dunflops. My 265 70 17 cooper AT3's more aggressive than my friend's nitto terra grapplers in 285 70 17. I have had them in wet road and slight mud conditions and in both places the coopers outperform the terra grapplers by ten fold. They have a 55000 mile warranty and they are 150 bucks per tire through discount tire direct plus a 75 dollar rebate. The only draw back thus far is that i had to wait about two weeks to get them because they were on backorder. These tires are a hell of a deal.

    I will post some pictures of what they look like in a day or so.

    You will not be disappointed but if you would put prices you got on these tires because i had a hard time to find pricing on forums.

    The AT3 is a good tire.

    One member replaced a Hankook ATm with a Cooper AT3 due to availability issues, so he was driving with a 3+1 setup, and found no difference.

    Stop running bald tires. Not only putting yourself in danger buy also everyone else on the road.
