I will be replacing my Cooper Discoverer ATP with another set of ATPs when they finally wear out. They have around 60K miles on them so far with a little life left.

They are wearing excellent considering the weight of my truck and what I haul and tow. They're fairly quiet and ride/handle fantastic.

The Yokos have the mountain/snow flake symbol on them but I don't think they should. Clearly they're not genuine snow/ice tires, but they've really disappointed me over the last two winters. They do fine in a dry powder, but that's not saying much. In wet, slimy snow they're not confidence inspiring at all. My very heavy F150 seems to just float on a few inches of slushy, wet snow. Even when it's -15 and the cold snow is squeaky under the tires, they have been a bit of a let down to me. They're rather poor in mud and grass, too.

To me, there's too much downside with A/T tires so I'm going back to Discoverer M+S (or maybe the MasterCraft equivalent) before next winter. Not nearly the same tread life with the M+S but traction is so much better in snow and for hauling hay off road. It's all dependent on what you do with your truck.

Ditto on the Geos-the set on the XJ refuses to wear out, they're up to around 30K now! Really want some 31s (which the lift would let it handle), but I can't see throwing/giving away perfectly good rubber. The F-450/Super Duty also has them on the rear & they do fine in snow (but 8-9000 pounds & an Eaton TrueTrac locker isn't hurting either). You can't go wrong with Bridgestone Dueler Revos either, although I've only had Revo 1s & 2s, no 3s yet.

Switched 3 HD Chev/GMCs this year to Nitto EXOs and one so far to Toyo CT. No going back.

For an AT tire, they weren't bad at all. Quieter than the crappy Michelin LTX AT2s that were on it. And they were brilliant in the rain and snow as well.

I've got a set of Michelin ATs on a Toyota FJ and I couldn't be any more impressed. I think they might be 10-ply rated, not sure, but they are rock steady at 85 mph, no concerns whatsoever in the dirt and rock, and in winter I have had to remind myself that there is snow on the road.
