someone will be on stating 'check the archives'

well worth doing as this is a very common topic, similair to WAECO vs engel, or RODEO vs triton.

Don’t know but have Cooper AT’s and have had no problems with them in 45,000k.

Would I get them agene yes, but probably not on this 4WD as by the time the current Coopers are up for replacement, I won’t be holding on to the Car long enough to warrant spending the $$ on the Cooper’s only to hand it over to someone else after 5-10,000K, so will fit another well know brand that are less expensive.

Was hanging out for a free set of Cooper ST’s with just 15,000k on em, but I think the guy who was going to give em to me has decided to hold on to em for a bit longer, Bugger :(

I managed to get hold of a set of ATR's at wholesale prices: $210 per tyre.

I have had them on my Prado for approx 10 000 k's so far. Most of the driving has been highway work unfortunately with a little play in the dirt now and then.

After 10 000k's there is little visible difference from when they were brand new.

I am very happy with their bitumen performance, not noisy at all and their stopping ability on wet bitumen is excellent.

I am equally happy with their dirt / gravel performance but have to state this has been very limited.

When I return to Australia later this month I will take my Prado through as much mud as I can find whilst I do some reconnaissance for summer camping spots but that will probably be a little late for you.

If you can get them at a decent price then I would grab a set.....I doubt you will be disappointed.
