Cooper Discoverer ATP 265/75/16

Cooper Discoverer ATP 265/75/16

$113/ea at Discount Tire

Durango is at stock height, no rubbing as of yet. Looks like enough room though. Was considering T&S lift if needed, but might not be necessary.

Nice!!

I wish I could get decent A/T 17" tires in Canada for under $200, but $300ish is the norm.

I've been eyeballing the Open Country AT II tires that were just released....

Nice. I got the ATR on mine (got em for free brand new) but I wanted the bridgestones.. but free is better than $800...

Not quite sure the difference but I got the same size as you. They actually handle quite well. Good traction in rain, not too sure about snow yet.

I only have a slight rub on my pass side, but that's due to my bumper pushed in a tad from a prior wreck. Driver side clears by a 1/2". So the pass side is just out of spec by a tad on my truck. Loud tho lol






And the size I think fits the Durango really well. I didn't see a full angle shot on yours..but to give future folk an idea..this is how the tire looks sticking out from the sides and how well it fits the wheel wells

Your ATRs are loud? I don't think the ATPs are loud at all.

I too have a tiny rub when turning into a parking slot, it's only the Driv side though. LOL, from a prior wreck also, as you can see my bumper is a tad askew.

oh no I meant the loud from it slightly rubbing on the front bumper bolt.

The actual tire/road noise.. I can't hear the road. I'm actually really impressed with the sound damper in the Durango.. Tho I seem to have some special matting under my carpet.

Yeah, my bumpers are the same.. Either way.. A little rub never hurt anyone. Mine is just enough to rub the paint off the bolt. That's the only part it actually touches (the bolt).

Just gonna bump this up because DiscountTireDirect has a $100 rebate right now when you purchase 4 tires through there ebay store.

So, you can get 4 of these for $400 shipped to your door. Great deal.

Put these to the snow test yesterday. We got about 14-16" of snow Sunday.

Last night pulled the D out of get the snow blower of of the garage, no issues at all. Took a spin around the neighborhood, and it was a breeze! Didn't even have to use 4HI until I got to my driveway, which is inclined pretty good.

This AM when driving to daycare, roads were pretty icy and slushy, and these tires handled that great. No issues at all, 2wd the whole time.

They pass my inital snow tests!
