Does anyone have/run these tires? They are made in the USA, have a tread depth of 12/32", grade at an "A" for both traction and temperature ratings, weigh close to my factory tires, and have a 60,000 mile treadwear warranty.

I'm going to purchase a new set of tires this summer, for my Jeep Renegade. There aren't a lot of choices in A/T tires that fit this vehicle. The stock size is 215/60/17.

My criteria: Must be an A/T style tire, preferably made in the USA, and at least 12/32 tread depth.

That work really good for you. They will Outlast most tires, I myself don't like their lack of aggressiveness. But then again I do a lot of hunting and camping.

But if you're driving mostly on the freeway what some off-road driving, they will work good for you.

As a side note, how's your athlete's foot doing?

The only thing that they lack from looking at photos of them anyways, is the aggressive sidewall that say the BFG AT/KO or Yokohama Geolander A/T-S have. That being said, I put mostly highway miles on(like you mentioned) with the occasional need to go off the beaten path for hunting and camping. I need something that holds air well in the cold and handles well in the snow.

My athlete's foot is doing pretty good I think. I've gotten the itching/burning to almost completely disappear. I am using the Tinactin, baby powder in my shoes, washing it thoroughly every day, and trying to switch socks mid-shift. I also bought new socks and threw all my old ones out. Thanks for asking.

Cooper Discoverer AT3s....Made in USA..quiet, good wet traction, reviewed for good tread wear and mileage. I've had two sets on two different vehicles. They are priced well and get excellent reviews.

Same set on my GMC. Seems to have great off road traction. Do not generate much noise on road. My Car is louder.

12/32????????????
That's 1/2 wore out. Guess it would be OK for highway use.

I was a big fan of the Yokohama Geolandar AT-S I ran on my 4-Runner. Spent as much time off road as on-road.

They have a plant in Mississippi, but I'm not sure if the Geolandar is manufactured here, might just be Commercial tires...

This webpage is almost a year old, but will help give you other options.

Cooper is another choice I'd recommend.

I have been thinking of how well the Cooper performs as compared to the much more expensive Michelin Defender LTX M/S in terms of road noise, smooth ride, and which tire might have a stiffer sidewall. Any ideas here, shilo and Gy?

I'd love to put those Cooper AT3's on, but as of right now, they don't offer them in a size that works for my vehicle. I have my fingers crossed that will change by then. I've had them on 2 vehicles and they are about perfect for what I use them for.

Conti's are one of my three favorite brands, but I've always used German made Continentals.

Still, I would give the American made ones a chance.

No idea on the Defender...other than Michelins and BFGs are quite a bit more pricey...about $150-$200 more for a set in my tire size. Coopers get good reviews and I am pleased with them, especially for the price.
