Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forever One the best tires I have owned for a truck. I put miles on them as well. Nearly 50,000 of them. Fronts lasted about 40,000-42,000. As long as cooper makes this tire ill buy them

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tire - Quiet I used this tire three seasons, and even this last winter, at the lower end of tread depth, they had good traction. They have been quiet, even as I am now hitting the wear bar. They wore fast for me, but I do tow multiple trailers. I would buy another set. They are value priced and confident.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Four years later After 4 years and almost 37K they are just now getting noisy on our 06 GMC Sierra 1500 crew cab. Just had vehicle serviced and we still have some wear left but the front tires did start to cup due to the alignment being off but now they are rotated to the back so we won't notice it on the steering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 90k & still going I bought these for my Nissan Titan. I have run these tires for 5 years now and put over 90,000 miles on them. I rotate tires every 15,000 miles and check my air pressure regularly. I do a lot of highway driving, around town, beach driving and logging roads. I have a good 1/4" of tread depth left. I am extremely happy with these tires in all terrain, weather, rain and snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got the look I wanted on my Tacoma Double Cab The truck came with BF Goodrich Rugged Brand tires and I wore them out pretty good. I wanted a rugged look again, but not aggressive since I drive mostly on asphalt. I put the white lettering out because I believe they are a quality brand and I just loved the look when I saw them on other trucks. I wasn't disappointed. I kept the same size because I had many more options to choose from. Yes, these tires make a great statement based on their looks. The feel is real nice and smooth, but they are new on a light truck. Based on what I'm reading, once I hit 15, 000 to 20,000 miles, I may put up my 2013 for sale and upgrade to newer. Until then, I'm really impressed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 22k miles and they are bald Attractive looking pattern. Pretty good traction on and off road. Pretty quiet. BUT: I got these tires for my 2008 Silverado 2500 Duramax. They were put on shortly after purchasing the truck almost 2 years ago at 118k with alignment done at the time of course. Routinely rotated and pressure checked(even though my truck has the tpms). Before last winter I took it for another alignment, had them do the rotation, and to get the steering system greased since I was working right near the shop and my garage had another vehicle parked in it being worked on and I was too busy. I just hit 140k. Currently my rears are at the point they would fail inspection, my fronts technically would pass, but barely. I was working in front of a tire shop today so I stopped in to shop around, looking at ratings and tread patterns. Twice I thought I found my new set based on the tread pattern and ratings, until the worker scrolled up and i seen they were COOPER. Unfortunately that was all they had in stock besides cheaper options. 22k out of what should of been a 60k tire. Load range E. LT265/75/16. Ironic thing is another gentleman came in behind me and was awaiting his turn to be serviced. He over heard me and the employees discussion about my current coppers and only having 22k and needing new tires, but wanting a similar style tire of quality. He came up and said he's in the same situation. He bought cooper A/T3s for I believe his f350 he stated. Had them on for a bit over 2 years. He wasn't sure of the miles on them but was under 30k. It seems almost like COOPER had a bad run on them at some point before me and the other patron bought them and me and him both paid a premium to find out we got them. I don't haul much. Occasionally my quad n dirtbike. Most of the miles are highway miles on asphalt. 7100 pound truck. No reason for me to only get a third of the life I paid for out of these tires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Got us through the worst winter in 30 years I bought a set of these for my '06 Honda Element last summer which I like to take camping off road. These tires performed well on western forest roads, rain and gravel, but where they really shined were the streets of Boise, Idaho in the winter of '16-'17. Mere mortal cars were stuck in their driveways, but my AWD Element made a mockery of lesser vehicles. Instant traction, and the edges of traction are easily identified. My wife's Civic was stuck in the garage and she drove my E to work for four days. She never had a problem. I can't judge longer term, but I can tell you that our first season with this tire was stellar. Recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2009 F150 supercrew, currently tires at 36k miles 2009 F150 supercrew, the 1st 3/4 of tire life the tires were pretty quiet. I'm on the last 1/4 life (tires currently 36k all hwy miles) & I noticed the previous very faint tire roaring had increased. I was concidering putting this tire on a 2000-2006 Mazda tribute /Ford escape but these small type of sport utilitys don't like a noisy tire on the rear (with the cab area is above the tire). They are excellent in heavy rain but now at 3/4 life I've started getting some hydroplaning. My rating will be based on new tires. My winter & off road rating I marked as good but I really haven't tested them in these extreme measures
