How is the tread squirm on those compared to the BFGs?

I like the looks of those. They're a good compromise for quiet tread design and mileage with a more aggressive sidewall look. The new Goodyear Ultraterrain looks pretty sweet too but the reviews I've read say tread squirm is pretty bad. The last set of Nitto Terragrapplers I had were downright dangerous on the interstate.

I have the cooper ATP (discount version of the AT3).
Had them on for about 6k miles now, definitely a good tire.
Nice and quiet, good grip in dry and rain conditions. Still haven’t tried them out in the snow yet, but they seem to be a very good tire for the PNW.
And they look pretty darn good View attachment 849372 View attachment 849374

Those are a completely different tire.

And I was giving my experience with another tire in their lineup.

The AT3 and ATP are very similar tires...

Yes, the AT3 XLT is different after I looked it up but aforementioned tire is another alternative.

Ya I get that dude, no problem.

this wasn't a tire shopping or comparison thread, it was a dedicated review and pictures and discussion on this specific tire which is new on the market. And since Cooper has made the AT3 line so big now I was trying make sure people knew that this was just asking about one specific model as to not get confused with the others that are much different.

but no worries, have a good weekend

ok out after a Chicago blast of winter

Varies from wet roads to 6-8 inches

Tried 2wd with traction control on and then some 4hi stuff. For what these are, 33” all terrains , they perform really well

I think cooper has made themselves a great tire that performs every bit as good if not better than the benchmark BFG AT KO2’s.

As far as smooth and quiet hands down a much better tire and I would say wet road traction if much better as well

I haven’t got them off road yet

Stay tuned for more updates

Picture after some driving on clearer roads to gas station

@Breathing Borla did you ever run the stock 20"wheels on your platinum?
I've always thought about getting some 18s to replace my stock 20" TSS wheels, but I never found any wheels I liked.
Just wondering it you ran the 20s if the ride changed with the 18s.

Went to DT to get some 20" tire quotes, and saw some wheels that interested me.
These quotes are with road haz and install;
If I keep the size I have now, 275/60/20 it's $1442.
285/60/20 (about a .5" wider and taller) $1533.

Those 18 wheels with 275/70/18 would be $1860.
Only thing is, that the wheels have a +12 offset, I'm concerned with rubbing.
They said they would test fit and make sure they didn't rub.
If it didn't rub, it would certainly look better with my pocket flares.
I like the TSS wheels, although everyone has them, but I don't like the +55 offset with my flares.

If I got the 18s and they fit, I could sell the TSS wheels and the KO2s.
Probably not for much, but someone would buy them..

I have never run 20's. I just dont think they belong on a truck. 18 is max for me.

I had the dealer keep the 20s buy me a set of tires (BFG KO2s at the time), then I brought in my 18 wheels and they mounted everything up. so they bought me tires for keeping the wheels.

I have +35 offset with the wheels I have now and that puts them as flush as you can get to the truck.

Seems like good deal to get wheels and tires for only a few hundred bucks more for the 18" set up.

There is way more sidewall and it will ride better, its a fact:nerd:

thought Id check back in now that I have some miles

great tires, super quiet and look great.

they seem to hold the pressure better than my BFGs

I think Cooper may have hit this out of the park, at least so far.

Thanks for the update.
I decided to wear out my KO2s and then I'll try the AT3 XLT.
Looking forward to wearing out my KO2s..:D

I have the 285/60/20's on my '12 DC, the XLT's of course. I run mine at 60 psi and love them, didn't so much care for them at 40psi. I've had them on for a couple thousand miles and they ride great nice and quiet. got mine and new rims at Discount tire. Had them match wally worlds price on the rubber.
