    I was going to go with Cooper Discoverer A/T, since everyone raves about them. Until I was informed that Cooper is OUT OF STOCK and doesn't have a new make date set.:realmad: So now plan B, what other tire should I consider, the size I need is 265/75R16 Load range E. I do alot of driving so I want something that will wear well and provide superior traction in wet weather.

    Anyone have any experience with Mastercraft Courser A/T tires? It's also made by Cooper and has the same tread design as the Discoverer?

    Goodyear Workhorse Extra Traction.
    They have an extra nylon belt under the tread that makes them tougher and less prone to punctures and rusted off belts when they get a few years old.
    I have had them for 2 years, I had them siped when they were new, They have outstanding traction in snow and ice.
    I have dedicated winter tires so I don't know how they holdup in the summer, At ten thousand miles there is very little wear. Hyperpack

    Ken, I am sure there is a set sitting at a supplier somewhere not that far off. IT might take some searching, but you should be able to find them.

    While on the subject of how certain tires perform on snow/ice, has anyone had any experience with Dayton Timberline A/T's? I know they are made by Bridgestone/Firestone, but I wasn't sure if they'd had a soft enough tread compound.
    I found a set of 285/75-16D for $100, thought it was a great deal, but if they aren't any good in snow, its not that great of a deal.

    I second the motion on the Revos! ;) I have a set of 265 D's...best damn on/off road tire I've ever owned! Very true running high tech tire with great traction. :)
