    Hi...any feedback on the Cooper AT3 4s tires? I am running AT3's on my GMC 2500HD, and have really liked them. They ride great, and are very quiet from what I can tell. I currently have BFG KO2's on my Tacoma...and they are getting loud. I am at the point where I really need to find a good all around tire that is quiet. Not quite ready for Michelin AT2's....although I am getting closer!
    Thanks...Steve.

    Nice looking truck by the way! Did you have to cut away the frame for those tires? Looks like you have a small lift...doesn't state in your current mods.

    I love the cooper at3s 4s tires, better then my falken at3w...just keep an eye out i got my on a black friday sale and paid $150 each

    i have a level kit/top coil hat spacers (3/4" front lift) but i still had to trim/melt the front inner fender, also had to do a cab mount chop.

    Thanks for the response! Have you noticed any noticeable road noise from them? My inclination is to give them a try with Discount/America's tire....worst case is I don't like them and then I can swap for Michelins. The older I get...the less interested I am in looks, verses performance and quiet!:)

    i cant hear them unless its wet, then since i have 285 that poke out the fenders they fling water so you can hear that, but you wont regret them. I think they "look" good. same style as falkens atw3, nitto terras, or bfg ko2. they also weigh less 46lbs each(285 70 17 sl rating), im running 35ish psi, im getting 17mpg, which only 1mpg less then my 265 75 16 falkens
