Discoverer A/T3

Has anyone put these on their XK yet? I am being tempted away from the BFG All Terrain T/A KOs. 245/75/17, going to put on the half inch spacer for clearance.

They are $10 cheaper a tire and Cooper is running an $80 mail in rebate (on top of the $30 from discount tire, 110 back on 197 each tires means I get one tire for only 87 bucks!).

Anyhow are these anygood? Good review on discount tire's website. I know the BFG's are great tires and I'm not going to sacrifice a top notch set of tires over 150 bucks (cheaper price per tire + rebates = 150ish).

Thanks guys!

I personally wouldn't recommend BFG All Terrains to anyone.

Really? I've only heard good things! The truck will only have a half inch front level kit and is primarily a daily driver but gets some use down some dirt back roads, i need an agressive tread that preferably has a warranty and will do well on road in dirt and snow. Do you have a recommendation? Are the Coopers i mentioned a better option?

Thanks in advance!

I guess it all depends on where you live. I've had them on a few vehicles in the past and they were horrible in the snow and mud (obviously they are just an all terrain tire so i didnt expect them to be good in the mud). One good thing about them is you will get a good 50,000 miles out of them.

So I personally don't like them but I'm sure others do. I'm not sure about the coopers because I've never had them. Not sure if you want to spend the extra money but the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac would be a perfect tire for you.

I'll have to get a quote on the Goodyears, I always used Goodyears when I had my Blazers in the past. It's my wife's truck and she wanted some really agressive looking tires, and my job is to find aggressive but long lasting. I'd put on a mud terrain but i hear they aren't great in snow and they never have a warranty. We went through tires like crazy on her old Liberty so the warranty is important.

Thanks for the advice. Do you know if they will fit in the larger size I mentioned with just the leveling kit?

You will burn through the tires on a full-time 4WD vehicle (which I'm assuming you have) if you do not rotate them on a regular schedule. The warranty will be voided if they are not rotated. Take a look at the Goodyear Wrangler Silentarmor, Wrangler Duratrac, and Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure. http://www.goodyear.com/en-US/tires/search/265_70_17

Definitely will, and it is indeed a fulltime 4x4 set up. The Liberty was part time 4x4 but we just had crap tires on it and I'm making an effort to not make that mistake again, because no matter how much you rotate the tires, if they are crappy tires they wear away anyhow.

I'm aiming to put on the 245/75/17 and the front leveling kit. If I have to go 245/70/17 to fit a nice tread thats fine. I just read some reviews on treaddepot for the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac's (I try and read the high mileage ones) and it sounds like pretty consistently people are getting at least 30,000 miles out of them. IF they are that much better of a tire I'll sacrifice 10,000 miles under warranty. I hadn't even considered them because of the lack of warranty.

Are they the best of the bunch?

Thanks guys!!

I would definitely go with the Duratracs. They give the more aggressive look and performance of a mud terrain, with the on-road personality of an all-terrain.

If I recall, they were also rated pretty well for winter driving. But I haven't had a chance to test 'em since we don't have winters in Houston, haha.

I ordered the a/t3 's today im having them installed on monday i picked these over the goodyear wrangler silent armour due to the $80 rebate, they seem to be a good deal for what they offer.
