Love Firestone Destination MTs. Decent mileage but, hard compound. Hate anything Goodyear.

Running Firestone Transforce AT's on truck now. Seem to be holding up ok, lot of towing and gravel .

I researched a lot before buying them, and have been pretty happy so far.

I've been running Hankooks since the turn of the century. Eek! And they will be my next tires I purchase also.


I'm running Hankook 275/70/20s. Dynapro I think. 40K +. No complaint except a bit of noise a high speed. So I put on louder duals. Big Grin Problem solved.

Cooper atp3 LT. They bite well offroad, not noisy on the road, don't hydroplane in heavy rain, and last for miles. They are not winter rated but worked well enough the truck didn't need any sand bags in two wheel drive. You pay a little more but get more bang for your buck. Tried the ath for a roadtrip suv. They are even quieter and worked decent in the fields but couldn't cut it in the feed lot.

What is everyones choice of tire for there truck.. just trying to get some opinions before I make a decision and not having very good luck with tires lately.



I have had good luck with Toyo OPEN COUNTRY A/T II LT tires. Just bought another set of them for my dodge ram, got 76,000 miles out of the first set of Toyo's.
I run 25% gravel and 75% blacktop. I pull a camper, utility trailer, or boat with them. Works good in the snow and rain.
Run me around $1000 for a set, but they last twice as long as the last truck tires I had....

Wranglers for me. Trade trucks every 5 to 6 years, and never have to replace the originals. doc


How come there is never time enough to do things right when there is always time to do it over again? doc

Does anyone have any experience with the Goodyear Wrangler Trailrunner AT tires? How about Cooper Discoverer AT3 tires? Been looking at those as well as a couple others as I am likely going to need new tires before winter. Thought I'd ask on here to see if anyone has any experience with those tires and what your thoughts are.

X2 on the Toyo AT II's been running them for a number of years on our work trucks. Not a lot of gravel but have had them on 4 F150s and 2 suburbans. somewhere around 70K each set. Had a set of Toyo open country MT's on my f350 80% gravel and 20% blacktop just changed them out after almost 40k.

I've had good luck with the AT3. That's what I usually run on my work truck.

My decision came down to BFG KO2's and Cooper AT3's. The AT3's are quite a bit cheaper and come in a lighter P series, not just LTs, and i was looking at an AT3 today on the wall and it looked like the tread was glued onto the tire, like a retread or something? I need to see if that was a bad looking tire or what they all look like and how they're constructed. I've had the original KO's on a truck in the past and another set are on my jeep now, no complaints (as long as I kept them rotated so they wore even to keep down the howl). I actually have an old set of KO from back in the 90's on a hay rack (tires outlived the truck LOL). So leaning heavily towards the KO2's for my current truck. They're pricey, but like anything you get what you pay for...


You can run coyote, but you'll just die tired.

After a fair amount of research I just put a set of Hankook dynapro atm's on my half ton. Got 64k out of my stock Goodyear wranglers so I looked at them again, cooper at3, firestone destination and others.

I have had a couple of sets of cooper AT3's. First set was on a Tacoma and they worked good, but I lived in town at the time. I now live on a gravel and wont be buying them again. I get a new puncture from the rocks a couple times a month. I bet I got about 20 patches or plugs in them with 30-40K miles and cant wait to get something different.

That is great to hear, this is what I am putting on my F150 next month. Pretty sweet looking tire.
