btw are they loud ?
They've been on for about a year and a half now. I wouldn't base a tire decision based on manufacturer generalities. They all have good and bad tires. I read up a lot on the Dynapro ATM RF10's before deciding to pull the trigger. I have about 14000 mi on them. I'm not hard on my tires. They seem to be holding up treadwear wise fine. They have been quiet on the highway. Maybe slightly louder than the stock Michelins.

Re: All-terrain for tire recommendations

so I actually spent all day researching on other forums and such and reading reviews and comments of people who went through sets of tires

so far I got is The cooper and the hankooks are best bang for the buck

the Nittos wear out fast and there are way more people complaining about road noise when they are at 50% tread while the coopers and hankooks everyone is happy with road noise on them.

Also the Nittos have many reports of being crappy in wet environment and cant offroad for **** (I wont be offroading so I dont care ) but wet conditions does seem like a dissapointed I read reviews from guys who ran nittos and then ran hankooks and hankooks were the better tire in almost everyone who ran the 2 one after another especially in offroading/wet leafs and such

The coopers so far got nothing but perfect forums comments everyone is happy both hankooks and coopers are the best choice

the toyo open country is basically the same as the nitto's just different tread pattern
but wayyyyyyyyy tooo many comments on how past 15K miles its game over for them..

so I think I will be buying the cooper or maybe the hankooks most likely the cooper they look more aggressive while mainting a quiet ride

Wow. My Toyo's still look like new after 2 years, but were not used last winter! So really they are 1 1/2 years old.

And I will probably go with them again in the future, but of course, time will tell!

Re: All-terrain for tire recommendations

I was in the same boat as you a couple months ago. I was looking for an AT tire, with an agressive look/tread, that was fairly quiet, but was good in mud/snow too.

Price, of course, was important. One of my main wants/needs was a tire that was quiet on dry pavement. I narrowed it down to 3 tires:

Cooper Discoverer A/T: Very good reviews on road noise and tire life. Rated the best of the 3 for rolling resistance. Price was right too. I could get them mounted and balanced for under $160.

Kumho Road Venture KL73: Again, good reviews on road noise and tire life; although they were rated a bit noiser than the Cooper and KL61's, just because they have a very agressive tread pattern. Rated the best of the 3 on ice braking. Snow flake symbol. Rolling resistance was highest of the 3. I could get them cheaper than the Coopers, at around $150 a piece mounted and blanced.

Kumho Road Venture KL61: The best of the 3 on noise ratings. Tire life expectancy was just as good as the Coopers and better than the KL73's. Rated better than the Coopers/KL73's on hydroplaning, has the snowflake symbol, but rated just below the KL73's on ice braking. Rated equal to the Coopers on rolling resistance. Mounted and balanced for $165 each.

I ended up going with the KL61's. I like the tread, that is aggressive, but not too agressive. Sidewall has an agressive look too...I like that about them. Road noise is very comparable to all-season tires. Very good ride. I am very happy with them so far. Have put about 1200 miles on them and would rate them very high.

Re: All-terrain for tire recommendations

After much research I purchased BFG Rugged Trail TAs. Not much louder than the worn out stock Mich. I removed. Very good price and treadware! Take a look at them.

Just bought them late October. They work great, and I got them for a great price, but I need more miles on them before I can wholeheartedly recommend them. I haven't even put them through a Minnesota winter yet.

Re: All-terrain for tire recommendations

Gouranga, any update?

I'm going to get a set of the Coopers, did you get the 245/70R17? The OEM size for the RT is 245/65R17 but I can't find them in that size.
