Short Bus said:IDK about the Coopers, but have you looked at Tread Wright Wardens?
Me007gold said:No, its the ATP I cant find anything about them on Coopers website, but they are listed on discount tires site.
jbones said:The rolling resistance looks much better on the AT3 though. Maybe they discontinued the ATP, or it’s one of those made for and sold exclusively at Discount Tire things?
jbones said:There's a Cooper tire dealer not too far from my house, I should stop in one day and look.
Another thing I don't like about the Cooper Tire site is they don't give the tires weight. I can assume the ATP is a fairly heavy tire based on it being more of an off road tire.
If this helps here’s Consumers Reports Nov 2011 top 5 AT Tire. I’ve never seen Cooper tires rated on TireRack.com, would be nice if they did.
Cooper Discover AT3
Hankook Dynapro ATM
Kumho Road Venture AT KL78
Kumho Road Venture SAT KL61

Me007gold said:Thanks! Thats what I figured. The Dynopros are only a few more $$ per tire The tread is almost identical. I may have to swing by discount tire tomorrow and actually talk to some one. Do i need to get the LT tire or is the regular tire good enough?

The truck is only 5 years old, the spare would not be in bad shape (IMO), I never buy a new tire for the spare, if the spare is worn, I just use the best of the 4 I'm replacing. Just mybigytwotone said:i would do the 5 tires and replace the spare even thow it dose not get used it still deteriorates

Yes they will fitrwebdaddy said:Has anyone actually installed and had it fit the cooper discoverer at3's 265/65/17 on stock wheels without wheel spacers on an Envoy or trailblazer? I hear that size will fit but tire sizes all differ on brands. I already ordered them and I'm putn on a 2.5 front and 1inch rear suspensionmaxx leveling kit. I hope they fit. I don't want wheel spacers.
jbones said:LT is a stiffer sidewall for off road and heavy loads. The regular is good for normal driving and some light OR duties, and better on gas. So, LT or not is going to depend on your use.
