The Discoverer AT34S provides reliable performance for SUVs and light duty pick-up trucks. Featuring Adaptive-Traction Technology™, the Discoverer AT34S is designed to grip the driving surface, whether rocky or smooth, in hot or cold weather conditions. The tire is constructed using an innovative silica-based tread compound and Cooper’s Sure-Grip™ five-rib, all-terrain pattern to provide off-road driving capability and excellent wet and dry traction. Its zigzag sipes improve vehicle stability while reducing stone retention, and uniquely shaped deep center grooves reduce hydroplaning. Severe weather rated, the Discoverer AT34S has patented saw tooth technology designed to trap snow in the tread to provide superior stopping distance on snowy surfaces.

Top 3 Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S Reviews

Given 93% while driving a Suzuki Jimny (225/70 R15) on a combination of roads for 0 easy going miles
Mounted these on my All New (2020) Jimny and it exceeded my expectations! Grip is excellent both in dry and wet conditions. Road noise is almost non existent (same if not better than the stock Dunlop Grantrek AT20) and there seems to be no negative impact on my fuel economy despite being wider and bigger (although I am a light footed driver). I get better handling on this especially when cornering primarily because it is much wider than the stock 195/80/r15 Dunlop's. I will surely buy these tires again in the future! I only clocked in about 2000 kms on this so it is still not showing any visible signs of wear.

Given 88% while driving a Nissan Pathfinder (265/70 R15 T) on mostly motorways for 7,200 spirited miles
I bought these on promotion for about 1/3 less than they go for now.
Pros:
A handsome tire with good grip in all conditions. Unphased by heavy rain on the highway. Particularly amazing grip in deep snow in 4H or 4L. With 8" snow I was comfortably smashing up steep hills, stopping controlled and quickly, and VERY predictably 4 wheel drifting in the snow. Very good at expelling mud or snow from getting packed in the tread. Noise from tire is hardly noticeable compared to other tires in the category. Capable on and off road with an amazing 65,000 mile warranty.

Cons:
MPG noticably decreased; my average mpg fell from ~18.5 to ~17 mpg in the past year. The tires squeal on concrete roads in wet conditions before they have warmed up. Pebbles stay wedged in between the tread and make clicking noises until the noise stops on the highway and some poor sod behind you got a rock chip. Tire feedback feels numb, but that blame can be shared with my 20 yr old suspension on a 4500# Nissan dinosaur. Also, the price skyrocketed after the positive reviews rolled in.

TL;DR These are class leading tires that punch above their, and their manufacturer's weight. Cooper marketing was spot on for the SUV driver that mostly keeps to the highway, but needs uncompromising off-road performance when duty calls. At the current $156/ea USD price online, I'd shop around or wait for a rebate. When first released I got the price down to ~$100/ea USD with a rebate.

Given 81% while driving a Ford Ranger (265/60 R18) on mostly country roads for 16,500 average miles
I had these fitted very soon after getting my truck as the original Continentals had very little traction on the rear wheels on wet roads and mud. The Coopers have been excellent tires. Handling isn't as good as with the original Continental tires, but that's expected as the Coopers are all terrain tires with a much more chunky tread. This doesn't bother me as I drive a truck, not a sports car! Performance on both dry and wet roads is excellent. Performance off road is also superb and they really do allow the truck to go anywhere. Tire wear is very good. I've done 16,000 miles on them and they've hardly worn at all.

Given 74% while driving a Mercedes Benz X250 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
I bought theese tires especially for snow after a long research. I was not disapointed as they behave like a winter tire bought in the snow and ice. I can't say much regarding wear as I only driven them 10k - there's hardly any wear visible by now. In the dry: it's an AT tire on a Merc X Class, they grip well on and off road. Road noise it's not bad, just not as good as a summer tire. Overall I am very satisfied with the performance in winter conditions, comparing with Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac.
