Greetings,

I am running 265/60/R18.

The Cooper AT3 was going to be my choice until I looked into the Nokian Rotiva AT. The Cooper impressed me with the tire compound using the silica. This gave it a lot of traction and better rolling resistance. Everybody I spoke with that had the Copper AT3 loved them.

This YouTube link is a 3 part series on the AT3:

Cooper Discoverer A/T3 (part2) - YouTube

Cooper Discoverer AT3 part 3 (snow) - YouTube

With regard to the Toyo's, they were tied for 3rd place.

Yes, you can get the Nokian's in your size.

Hope this helps and best for now.:)

I have used the Toyo on my Ram 2500 and they are awesome in deep snow and mud. They are also very quiet, and a great improvement over the Goodyear Wranglers that was the OEM off road tire option.

I would get the Bridgestone A/T REVO 2. Had these on the Dakota and even put them on the Honda Pilot! Great in snow, wet, NC beaches....

I have used several sets of Toyo ATs from my 1996 Tahoe Z71, to 3/4 ton Ram diesel 4x4 crew cab, to my current 275/55/20 on my 2012 Overland.

The original Toyo AT design rode very well, just as quiet if not quieter than the Michelin LTX AS that came on the Ram. It ran well in snow, dirt, rain, and slop---let's not complain about mud as they are not mud tires. But as an overall "all terrain" they were very good.

My current set is the ATIIs. The new tread design is suppoed to have increased traction due to more aggressive notching in the tread blocks, stone ejectors, and thicker more protected shoulder area. It ride just as quiet as the OEM Goodyear Forteras with more security in inclement weather as well as traction over dirt and slop.

The new ATII advertises up to 40% more tread life. Now, I reached 60K miles on a set of the original Toyo ATs on an 8,000 truck with another 10K if I had wanted to go right to the tread bars. That is pretty good as many users on the Ram forums say they got from 40K to 60K at the skin.

Coopers AT3 appears to be a very good design and garnered great reviews and was on my short list. I just decided to stick with a known and trusted brand that has served me well.

I have also used Bridgestone Revos on my Toyota 4Runner. It ran very well in rain and snow. I got about 65K miles out of them.

I am still living in the 20th century and listen to CDs. I still have cassettes in my house. I don't Tweet, or is it Twit?, do not Facebook, and have no idea how to get on Ebay. I have no apps on my phone that did not come from Apple. I can remember 45s, 33 1/3 rpm, and 8 tracks. :D

Sorry. I will have to ask a few friends on how to post pics. :confused:

I'm currently running Toyo A/T 2's on my 2012 ram 3500. I've put about 12k miles on them since the beginning of the year. Being a 10ply, it's hard to compare to how the P metric would be, but compared to previous gen Toyo, they are a lot better on snow/ice, do well on loose dirty/mudd access roads(not muddin, just muddy from some thawing snow/rain), quieter too, and rain stability is pretty good, but again my dually with tools, etc weighs about 9klbs. I would consider them for personal vehicle, but I'm looking at Terra Grapplers(loved them on my last 1/2 ton) for the wife's ride...and she work's at Goodyear headquarters if that says what I think about most of Goodyear tires...I run Blizzaks in winter too, just not a big fan of GY. I considered the Coopers for my truck,good looking tread for what most people will use the Jeep for, but for the diesel dually, I went with the Toyo.
