Tire Reviews: Cooper Discoverer A/T 30x9.5
(Marshall, NC, USA)
I got a good deal on these tires at a local repair shop. They came off a newer Tacoma. My truck is a 1985 Toyota 4x4 long bed pickup.
Initially these tires were very rough. I felt every bump. Eventually they evened out or I got used to it.
They ride well on the highway, corner well, handle water well and are pretty quiet. But I bought them to go off road, sometimes.
Unfortunately, they slip on wet grass and do not like snow or loose soil of any depth. Even on dry gravel roads I had to use 4 wheel drive, going uphill. I had to buy chains to go off road on logging trails and to go through heavy snow.
My previous tires were Bridgestone Dueler Revos, which handled these situations much better and never got stuck, although they eventually were louder tires and wore out prematurely due to my lack of rotation and alignment.
I would not buy these Coopers again for my purposes, but they would be okay for city, highway and very light off-road use.
