    Any preferences between the two in the title (looking at 265/75/16 for stock wheels on a stock 2004 TRD Xtracab).

    They are basically the same price, within a few $.

    I bought Firestone Destination AT's for my Taco this fall (P265/75/R16). Absolutely love them. They have been great in the snow.

    Here's some pics of them on! Good luck with your choice.

    I wanted to buy the Firestone Destination AT's for my wife's 4Runner but I would of had to wait because my tire supplier said they were hard to get right now. I instead bought the Cooper Discoverer ATR's. I asked the wife how she likes them in the ice and snow and she says they are doing fine and no complaints. My co-worker has the Firestone Destination AT's on his 1st generation Tacoma and he loves them. Both good tires, your choice.

    I've got the Cooper ATR's and couldn't be happier with them. They've performed extremely well in all the snow we've been hit with in New England. They're pretty quiet on the road and do well on wet pavement also. I would definitely recommend these tires to anyone! I don't have any experience with the Firestones so can't say anything for or against.

    I just got the Cooper ATR's and am really impressed with them so far. I found mine on CL, 4 brand new 265/70R17 ATR's for $300. They are just aggressive enough tread for what I do, but still composed/quiet on the road. We will see how they compare to other tires I've had in the past.

    I was torn between Cooper Discoverer ATRs or Cooper Discoverer S/Ts. Went with the S/Ts and so happy I did. Very nice ride, not loud, and performing great in the snow/ice. The two tires are about the same price, just my $.02~
