Waiting on my 2012 Ram 1500 Crew 4X4 to arrive, and am looking for the best A/T tire I can put on it. 80% highway driving (so do not want to noisy), needs to be good for a Canadian winter. I am down to these two tires. Would appreciate opinions from those that have used one or the other, or both. Thanks

I'm in the same boat but I'm also considering the Nitto Terra Grapplers:



or the BFGoodrich Rugged Terrains:



What I like about the BFG rugged terrains is they aren't expensive and they have a 50,000 mile warranty

Either way I'm going to get the LT version of these tires because I seem to get a lot of flats from ranches I visit (thorns and such) and the thicker ply of the LT as apposed to the P's should help with that

Guy I work with got the Silent Armor and he said they were pretty good on his truck. I just ordered Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1 for mine so I can't comment on how good they are.

I just had the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor installed on my 2010. So far, I love them. Very smooth and quiet, great on wet and dry roads. I have not seen any snow or ice with them yet, but since they are branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol (the Cooper is not), they should be fine. As they have passed all the same testing as a dedicated winter tire.

I ran the silent armors for 4 yrs and 50K on my '03. They worked great right up until I sold the truck with them still on. The winter performance was the best I had ever experienced from an AT tire. Plus a rather decent warranty.

I bought Cooper at3's and i'm very happy with their performace. Quiet, good ride and good traction. I haven't had a chance to test them in alot of snow yet but, they did just fine in the snow so far. Also, they are made in america which means alot to me.

I am running the Wranglers as well - put them on a year and a half ago - I drive a wide range of roads including gravel and like the tire.

Although I am going to put some 22's on next spring for summer tires the Wranglers do a very good job in the summer with dry traction (I am running the TVS 2300 magna charger).

Bottom line I would recommend them.

i like buying "made in the usa" also, but where do they get thier materials from? back on track.

put silent armors on wife's grand cherokee, running for 2 years now, great tire in all conditions. holding up well. may be the only decent tire goodyear makes.
