    Can't tell yet about wet roads, but it is supposed to rain her tomorrow and I will certainly get them wet. The crappy Goodyears were so stiff and rough, and would spin at an intersection if it even looked like rain!! And, they look really great on the truck...the OWL letters are very nice, not gaudy.

    This was a great choice and all for $619!!!!
    I just drove home in a complete down pour about an hour ago. While I wasn't going over about 55 because of the large puddles in the road, the tires and truck handled it great!

    I've got a set of the Cooper Discoverer ATPs. 265/75R16 on my burban. I did some extensive research before I got these tires, and even though these are not an LT rated tire, the tire rating on these equal the light truck tires. I've got about 2000 miles on them and have been extremely impressed. Not too much off road, just a day at the beach. They performed excellent. I was getting out of places other guys were getting stuck. Sure it helped having the 4wd on and the G80 locker in the rear, but it never felt like I was losing traction. Even through the nasty soft stuff. Road noise is very minimal and street performance feel like a set of street tires. My first set of Coopers, but will definitely purchase another set. Oh, and these were less than $700.

    yeah these tires really do wear very well! although i will tell you adding your hub rings will do absolutely NOTHING to improve tire wear, you might have an alignment issue or something else, hub rings only help you to align the wheel before tightening the lug nuts, if they were meant for more than that do you think they would be made out of plastic? lol keep up with the rotations and i have no doubt you will be cranking at least 50k out of them

    OK guys! Any updates on the AT3's? Mileage and towing? Looking at possibly purchasing these for my 97 Yukon that pulls a 6000# travel trailer and rural daily driver. Thanks
