I figured Iíd chime in since this thread helped me pull the trigger on getting the ATXís after my Cooper AT3ís weíre nearing the end of the road. Iíve had mine installed for about 2500 miles now. I went with the SLís since itís a daily driver and most of its time is spent on road.

These tires have seen most conditions now: snow, rain, ice, dry, in town and open highway. (Yet to see off-road mud and rocks)

This is my wifeís ride and her old tires made her feel like she was on skates when it snowed. I figured some of it is her driving and some of it was the tires. So far sheís had 2 good snow days in Denver with the new tires and Iím yet to get a call from her panicked that sheís going to slide off the road. She says they feel a lot better in the snow and icy roads and they are a lot quieter than the old coopers.

Iíve had a chance to put some decent miles during a road trip from Denver to Phoenix over the Thanksgiving weekend where we experienced heavy snow through all of New Mexico on i25 and i40. Iím impressed by how well they did in the harsh conditions. During our trip we saw lots of cars stuck and spun out. We kept it in 4wd and cruised right thru.

Thanks to everyone who provided some insight on these tires.

Those that have put them on and have a little time with them now, how are you liking them? Likes, dislikes.

I think I've got enough time in on them to give an opinion. 2000km. Been winter here for a few months we've had wet snow, ice and I just got back from a ride in light Blizzard conditions -17C. I never drove a truck before getting the 4runner and these are the only tires I've used.

I certainly feel confident in winter conditions. Vs winter tires I really like a all terrains as a middle ground because I can drift around and not worry about the soft tire compound melting off. It does slide on pure ice eg at stop signs or if I take a corner too fast but I think this is to be expected. These circumstances might have slightly better performance with winter or ice tires but would probably require a similar level of traction. I have been on decent inclines in 4 inch snow and had no problem with traction in 4wd. And in 90 percent of slippery conditions the 4runner takes off like a bat out of hell in 4wd and I have no problem with quick stopping.

They look damn cool. I have them at 33 PSI currently and they have a nice wide body and tread profile that gives it a more aggressive look than the stock tires. White lettering out is ftw.

Mine are p rated. I'm getting bad mileage but assuming that's because I tromp the throttle generally. (?maybe also the lower psi - not sure if someone might comment on that?) I think I made the right decision on P rated with respect to ride quality. Smooth and soft.

Price was definately right. Excited to see how they do in the summer and in muck.

I'll throw my 2 cents in. I've had these for about 5000mi now, and we just had snow, mixed snow, and an ice storm within the past two weeks. These have been fantastic in the snow and ice. The wet traction is great, and I feel confident. Obviously, ice is ice, but the slippage has been minimal.

Can't say I really have any complaints. I've been playing around with tire pressures to see how the mpgs roll. 36-37 usually keeps me around 17.5, plus or minus a couple tenths depending on how my driving goes for the week. Overall, I usually do 60/40 city/highway. Of course, temp, driving style, air pressure (etc.) affect those mpgs, so it isn't super reliable or scientific. But I was ok with the chalk test on them.

In terms of noise, I find the road noise acceptable. It's higher pitched, but it is not nearly as loud as other ATs or MTs that I have heard while on the street.
