Well, we've now put over 160,000 miles on our truck with camper. Check our blog stories, you will find a well rounded set of travels - mountains in winter, the high passes in Colorado, the legendary roads in Death Valley, and a bunch of other rough dirt roads. Most all of our adventures involve having 4x4 engaged. We travel alone on the vast majority of our trips, so tires I can depend on are mandatory.
I previously used two sets of BFG AT tires. I wanted to like them. I did not. My personal review on the BFG can be found here -
I put 48,000 miles on the set of Cooper Discoverer ATP. Based on this extensive experience, please allow me to offer a very personal review.
The Coopers performed for me better than the BFG AT KO . I am happy with them. Happy enough that I've replaced them with a new set of Cooper Discoverer AT3 from my local Cooper dealer. The ATP were a slightly different thread pattern and available only through Discount Tires.
If this tire went to school, here are the grades I'd give.
Dirt - A-
Mud - D
Snow & Ice - B+
Thread life - A
Quiet/Comfortable Ride - B-
Overall, I give this tire a very strong B.
Insofar as overall value, since the Coopers gave me 10,000 more miles and better performance than the BFG, Overall value gets a strong A.
I've used many tire brands over the years - BigO Bigfoot, Bridgestone Desert Dueler, Cooper Discoverer, Toyo Open Country. My favorite thus far is the Cooper Discoverer AT3.
