Default Michelin LTX, Copper Discoverer AT3 or BF Goodrich TA Tires

Alright folks, need input on which of these three tires to put on my Chevy Truck. Mostly highway, but occasional off roading. Dry, rain and snow conditions throughout the year. 4x4 truck. Thanks and what reasons for choosing that tire?

I'll probably put the LTX M/S2s on my grand cherokee when I swap out the tires. Highly rated all around on the forums and i've never had a problem with Michelin. That, or Bridgestone Revos.

Looks like I am leaning towards the Cooper Discoverer AT3 tires. Anyone have this tire?

I have the Discoverer H/Ts. Only been on a week, but I like 'em.

Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels is an excellent source for tire reviews, by the way.

I looked into a lot of tires before I bought a set for my 4x4 Ranger, and I have been very pleased with my choice, which was the Firestone Destination ATs.
At the time they were rated #2 by Tire rack, currently, 2 years later they are #1. They show no wear after about 30,000 miles, you can crawl rock with them and yet they are not too rough on the highway. In snow, I keep 3 bags of sand in the back for stopping but I can go up the hills easily in 4 wheel drive. The Goodyear Wrangler ATS that came on it were terrible, fishtailed even in rain.

Driven on all three choices, all on Chevy pick-ups and/or Suburbans (1/2 & 3/4 ton for each). The Michelin were the worst set of tires I have EVER had on a truck (tied for last place with the Michelin LT4's). The Goodrich were decent, but out of those three; the Coopers are head and shoulders better than the other two you have listed. Best set I ran though were an off-brand set that were cheap (I needed a set BAD and the bank account wouldn't let me buy another set of Coopers) were GT Radials "Adventuro AT II" Those things wore like iron and had very good traction. They lasted great on my 3/4 ton Suburban and I drove them through some nasty places... deep sand, mud, clay, rock, jobsites with nails and screws, and were pretty quiet on the pavement. The Drivers side rear tire had a sheetrock screw in it I picked up on a jobsite and as long as the tire wasn't leaking air I didn't bother with it... that screw was there for almost 2 full years before I remembered to have it removed and fixed.

Well, I bought the Cooper Discoverer AT3 today and on the ride home they felt good. They are quieter than the tires I took off. They tread pattern is a new design this last year and apparently consumers rated them number 1 for an AT tire. Oh well, I can only wait to put miles on them for another evaluation.

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your GT Radial Adventuros.
