Default Cooper AT3 or Yokohama ATS?

I'm trying to decide between these two "AT" tires. I know they aren't super aggressive but my Blazer is my DD I only do light offroading so no need for anything extreme. I have read a lot of good reviews on both but not really any negatives on either one. That's a good thing, but at the same time it's hard to sway one way or the other on which one to pick.


Anyone have any experience with both of them? My main interest is snow traction because not many reviews on either one mention it. Here in WV we don't get a ton of snow (not my part anyway) but frequently get an inch or two overnight which makes my work commute a pain.


I'm considering going to a 30x9.5 but may stay with the stock 235/75 for a better ride (4 ply vs 6 ply) since I road trip a lot but I'm not 100% yet. The difference is $4 more ($356 compared to $352) for the Yoko in the 235/75 or $20 more ($424 compared to $404) for the Cooper in the 30x9.5.


This isn't where I'm buying from but for comparison:
Cooper: http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...5&rd=15&cs=235


Yokohama: http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...5&rd=15&cs=235

Any input is appreciated!

you only getting 3? 4 would be 472. That being said I believe the coopers to be a better tire

I have the cooper at3, so far I do not have any complaints with them, i have 235-75-17, so not as big, but they work good for me.

They are having a sale at their eBay store: tires, wheels items in Discount Tire Direct store on eBay!


$100 off if you spend over $400 and the Yoko's have a $60 mail in rebate on top of that. I did say the wrong price on the Coopers in the 30x9.5; they are $436.

I have the Cooper Discoverer AT3 tires and they travel on the highway great. So naturally i thought they wouldn't do good offroad. Then i went off road and i was going everywhere that mud terrain tires were going. With the exception of me getting high centered. Also i got 255/70/R15 size. So they are 29.5 inches tall and 10 inches wide. If you go look at my garage you can see how it fills out nice as well is wider for a better contact surface. Just my input.
