I am very pleased with the set of Nitto Ridge Grappler tires that I recently bought from 4wheelonline. It performs well both on and off-road. Surprising quiet for an all-terrain tire.

FTR (for the record), I'm not a very picky tire guy.
But Toyo RTs (albeit mine are 37s) are loud for how aggressive they are and in factory trim (not siped) are only marginally better than fair weather tires and not as good as most all ATs in snow.

Similar snow performance to a Firestone Transforce AT. Not great.

Quick update. Have had the Cooper AT3's on now for a week including 200 miles of towing. Nothing to complain about. Ride much smoother than my Firestones did (though they actually have tread so that is likely why) and are not at all noisy. They look aggressive but ride like a quality AT tire. Fingers crossed I get better life out of these but I would suggest looking into them. Keep in mind however that they come in black or white letters. Mine are black and it's not the old flip the letter type tire so be sure you ask for while letters if that is what you want.

Yes - Cooper makes tires with white letters - but not in my size - see their response to me below. Sure, I could have gone with the tire they suggested, but didn't want to. The only tire with them( in my size ) is the Firestone - may have been a better tire that the factory set, but I didn't want to take the chance. Found the Bridgestone Duelers at a lower price than Discount tire and used the Found it lower link on their website - received an email from them offering the same price. Now that they are installed, they really don't look that bad.

I am having the Cooper AT3's installed tomorrow. Looked at those, Bridgestones, and a few others. Cant find any known name AT tires in that size for under $300 and have no interest in spending $400+ for goodyears. Cooper AT3's my local quoted rate was $300-$340 installed. Only got 30k miles out of the factory Firestones. Hoping to get more out of these, and they look awesome in the pictures. https://www.amazon.com/Cooper-Discoverer-All-Terrain-Radial-Tire-285/dp/B07DN82SN4


I used to run the Bridgstone Revo's and they were great at first and once they wore some I found that traction suffered badly. I switched to the Cooper AT3's and I am not looking back. Much better traction throughout the life of the tire, great wear and cheaper than the Bridgestones. That is my experience so others may vary.

Bridgestone or Michelin. (Duravis or LTX)

Two sets of the latter to go almost 250k (50/50 Town/Country).
