Factory wranglers (lol) are finally at 1/32”
At 75k on my little womAn’s ride.

Im looking at a set of cooper discoverer AT3

Any naysayers?

255 = Tire width in millimeters
75 = Aspect ratio. The sidewall height is 75% of the width.
R = Radial
17 = Wheel diameter in inches
115 = Load index
T = Speed rating

You certainly don't need the AT3s for your 99% road usage and likely won't get 75K out of them (1/32nd really?)

They're fairly quiet on pavement, ride & drive well, and work great on dirt. And they look pretty good. <- important

Thank you ANTS and kd0axs for explaining that to me!

Azjeff, yes she wants the “cool” tires not the cruisers.
We like to go out to south padre island in the sand.
What kind of application did you use them on?
Was i lucky the stock lasted super long or are you scolding
me for running bald tires? Lol
I've ran tires down to 0/32” no tread at all, completely smooth
(Im trying not to let that happen again)
shrug coffee

First set on an Xterra, liked them on and off road. Put a set on the 16 Silverado to get a bit more back road camping ability. They should do well in sand.

Stock tires are usually pretty hard to get good mileage out of them.

Bald tyres do fine in sand.

Recaps?? The page you link has an "email when available" tab showing. Not much help.

You would certainly get (at least) 75K out of Goodyear DuraTracs, but they are a bit more than the AT3's.

I have a set of the Cooper discoverer at3 on my xj. They are meh. Not really great for highway (loud) and leave much to be desired in winter. They work well on dirt and mild off road.

I had a set of nokian rotiva at and those were great at anything. A bit softer tread than you would think though even though the rating is 700.

Nokian now has a rotiva at plus out which may be worth a look.

1/32” and a vehicle with a high center of gravity that’s prone to rollovers? If you like this gal and want to keep her around, do better. 2/32” is the legal minimum in most places, for good reason.

I’ve got a set of AT3s for my Jeep. They’re okay, but not my favorite all-terrain due to the noise and difficulty to keep them wearing evenly. I’d much rather have the Goodyear Wrangler AT Advenure or General Grabber AT2.
