There are actually a few people, myself included, that had issues with the Duratracs spinning in the rain. This is especially true for the first 3,000 miles or so.
The Coopers are great and even though they look mild, they actually will clean out great for an AT tire in the mud and snow. The blocks are open and there are lots of ways for rain, snow, and mud to evacuate the tread which you cannot say for a lot of popular ATs out there. Plus, 65K tread warranty on some sizes. Wow. And, made in USA.

I went with the Cooper ATP
Just got these on and they are Quiet . 265/70 R17 121 E rated 10 ply . there is 3/32 more tread on the 10 ply and in Arizona the heat on the road likes to takethe compound down. I heard the AT3's were good also

Not sure what the tread patern difference is, but I have the ATPs and they have performed well. I purchased these knowing I needed a AT tire for 80% road conditions.
Very good price, quite, low rolling resistance, great for the beach and the trails of Ocala. Deep mud? not for me to answer, lol.....if possible I drive around it,.....park, grab a water, and watch the mudding of the other guys.

|Neral22||Would it be better to spend the extra $200 and get the duratecs? Any experience with them slipping in wet conditions?|

|Slackey2810||I live in Asheville, NC and am currently running these tires in 265/70r15. These tires are ok. They are awful in sand and mud because they don't clean themselves out so its likes going on bald tires basically. And their wear is pretty bad. I have about 8, 000 miles on them and they are already at half tread or less. I do moderate off roading, just a few mud holes and trails and they do fine on rocks but you will easily get stuck in mud if you are going uphill. So that's just my thoughts! But they look good for an A/T tire though!|

|Neral22||Thank you! Any one else run these on the east coast/Tenn area?|

|dawhitesJKU||Great tires. If stock sra's can handle moderate trails, these bad boys are more than enough. Rocks, sand, dirt, small river crossings...just be cautious of deep mud. That goes for any a/t.|

I am dead set on getting these. I plan to do 90% pavement and 10% off road. I am in Florida for another year, then moving to Knoxville. What are your thoughts on hitting the smokies off road with these Cooper AT3s? Should I be able to handle moderate trails at least? I have a RK 2.5 stock mod and will be getting 16x8 procomp wheels and 315/75r16 Coopers. If not, I would like some suggestions. My bigger thing is wet pavement. I do not like to skid all over the place and I have 2 little ones that I need to keep safe. My 2009 JKU is also my DD. THANKS!
