Take a look at the ATP's which are exclusive to Discount Tire and have a bit different design than AT3's but are essentially the same tire. The tread is aggressive but not as much as say the Nitto Terra's. I really like the look, they are QUIET, mileage didn't take a hit and overall I've been very happy with them. We go boarding often and head up the ski hills here in BC so I need a good snow tire too. So far I've travelled 300 miles thru one pretty bad snow storm and they performed well. I have to honestly same they are not quite as good as the Bridgestone Dueller H/T's in the snow but they are better on dry pavement and have a slightly stiffer sidewall so there's a trade off. It's not that they are bad in the snow but they don't have as good straight line tracking over 40 mph. If I still had a choice of tire I would stay with the Coopers. The only bad thing is they hold a few more rocks than the Duellers but that's only the problem of the drivers behind me.

The Falken Wildpeak and Rocky Mountain are essentially the same tire. I think the Rockymountain is a Discount Tire exclusive and other tire dealers carry the Wildpeak FWIW.

I am currently running a set of Nitto Terra Grapplers A/T. I have about 40,000 on them so fat and could probably get another 15,000. These tires have been great in all types of weather conditions.

Just bought Michelin LTX M/S 2 to replace Bridgestone HL Alenza 275/60/20 after 47k on them. The Bridgestones were a great tire and could of gone another 5k easy during the summer. I purchased the Michelins from Sears they offered $40.00 off and a rebate for $70.00 from Michelin. The price per tire was 301.00 before discount and rebate. Approx. $66.00 per tire more than the Alenza. I read the reviews on TR and the Michelins were the tire I was looking for. Tops in comfort, quiet, great handling,long lasting, 70k rating. Let me finish by saying they are worth it. I love them. They exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend them. The Bridgestones were great and you can't go wrong with them if price matters.

I ended up ordering the AT3s. The ATPs would have been much more expensive after ordering and installing them. The AT3s of course were out of stock and won't be in until next week....and it's snowing now. The good news, that after I get my tires installed, it won't snow again.

I'll see how many miles I get out of these. I may just go with Toyos or Nittos next time. It's pretty sad though that I put away money as my "tire fund" to be spent every two years.

I'll second the LTX M/S 2's. Very confortable ride and less noise than the conti's. treadwear seems good too. I probably have about 7k miles on mine and they still look new but that's not really a bunch of miles to compare. I didn't notice a change in gas mileage but I wasn't expecting to either.

I replaced the 275/60/20 Latitude Tours (stock tires) with Cooper Zeons at 17,000 miles. Although still happy with them, I'm down to 5.5-6/32nds with only 38,000 miles. Rotated every 6k miles too. So I'm looking at only about 8-10k more miles out of the Zeons (will replace around 3.5-4/32nds). Not real happy with the longevity, but otherwise vastly better than stock (other than noise).

My next tire will be the Hankook Dynapro ATM in the stock size.
