They've been fine. Handles great in snow, ice, rain, gravel and the dry. That's literally what I've been on just over this winter. No complaints. Quiet. Smooth.

Had them on the rig for two days now and here are my initial impressions:

City Driving - seem to handle as well as the Michelin's in the current dry road conditions. Havenít noticed any additional float or roll from the tires. They due transmit minor road surface imperfections into the car more than the Michelin's, however I find it actually nice to feel more "connection" to the road surface.

Highway Driving - no perceived noise increase, in fact they may actually be quieter than the Michelin's. Same issue (or non-issue) regarding the transmittance of road imperfections. It's not enough to be annoying, you just feel bumps/expansion joints etc. a bit more.

Snow Driving - I was able to test them on a snowy road today when I went out backcountry skiing. It is a gravel road, but was completely covered with snow/ice. I hardly varied by driving from how I would if it was just gravel, and felt no slip from the tires. Was incredibly impressed with the level of traction they exuded. On one particularly steep and icy hill, I punched it to see if TC would kick on, and got nary a flicker. Really eased my concerns of not going with a dedicated snow tire.

Overall, I'm very impressed with this tire, and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for one do-it-all tire who deals with a moderate amount of winter driving conditions. Of course this is only after two days, to things can always change, but I'm happy with my decision at this point. (pics can be seen in my build thread in the 4th gen forum).


How's it so far? We've been considering AT3 4S as next tires paired with the Rockstar wheels my wifey likes. Those looks great on your T4R and really looks impressive.

AT3 4s in stock size (265/70 17) put on my 5th gen about a month ago. Out of the norm from what most are doing - going larger and/or more aggressive. I was realistic about my 4runner usage and it made sense to go stock size in a p rated tire. I've had cooper ST-MAXX on my 80 series and was really happy with them so didn't hesitate to buy Cooper again. I love these so far. Just as quiet as the OE AT 20's with much better dry, gravel and - especially - wet performance. Living in the Seattle area, wet performance is key. Haven't been in snow yet but expect good performance.

Looks good. Planning on the same on my 14 SR5 before next winter. One set of tires saves so much headaches of swaps, storage, etc. I've run Discoverer AT3's on my 1997 Discovery 1 and on my 2007 LR3 and they were great on both. Getting something that I can run year round, awesome.

Do you have any lift on that 4runner? I'm in the market for new tires and I think I'm going to get these but not sure how it will look stock.

Slight lift, maybe 1/2" last I measured. I have FJ Bilsteins and coils on.

Tires are stock 265/65/17

Love mine on-road and off. Highway, fireroads, snow. Really happy with these tires and have a hard time imaging trying something different when it's time unless Cooper makes an ill-advised change.

Stock size, tiny lift & level for me.

I'm looking at replacing my current tires either with these or with Michelin defenders. For those that have had the cooper discoverer at3 4s, how have your mpg's been?

No change in mpg for me.

edit - to elaborate, I'm running the same 35psi in the coopers as I was in the dunlop AT 20's. My driving style or where I drive has not changed.
I still give these 5 stars. Snow this winter will be the last test

I was surprised to see all of the positive comments regarding these in snow. I put a set on a 2014 Ram 1500 and they seemed to do OK at first, but really lost their grip after about 10k miles.

The tires I ran before them were the Cooper ST MAXX and they were phenomenal in the snow and dirt, but very pricey.

The AT3s were good tires and did surprisingly well in the dirt and rocks. Rode nice and seemed to wear OK.

But, up here, I have to have a tire that does exceptionally well in the snow.

Thinking about trying out the Kumho AT51 tire next...

Just replaced my old tires with these in 265/70/17 p rated. Very happy with them after a few thousand miles. Highway mileage went down by approximately 1 mpg. They have a nice aggressive look but are still understated. Solid choice so far especially if you spend most of your time on pavement.
