Cooper at3's are great all season's I have them on work trucks and they are really impressive, the ride is great and traction is great in the dirt too.


Remember, We do it nice, because we do it twice.

Here is a review on BFG AT KO. It's somewhat larger than the one you are interested in, but you get the idea.

I was talking with the owner of the body shop that worked on my truck. His idea? Stay home when it's icy. There is not much that will make it safe to drive on ice. We are not too far from Lake Erie, so we get plenty of snow and ice.

BFG is a reasonable option, but this tire may work somewhat better than BFG as dedicated winter tire. For me, I am too lazy to switch back and forth between two different sets of tires.

By the way, I still have BFG Rugged Trail on my truck, remember that $hi++y tires that everyone loves to hate? I haven't gotten stuck once in nearly 3 years. I assume that BFG AT will be an improvement over the RT.

I have had good luck with Firestone destination ATs. I would check at the firestone dealer and see if they still have the buy 3 get 4th free sale going.

BFG ATs, and General grabber AT2s are great all season tires that handle snow and ice very well, but have impacted my gas mileage in the past and more expensive then deals I have found recently on the firestones.

Tirerack.com has a ton of reviews
