Cooper Discoverer A/T3 Tires in LT285/70/17E.

Cooper Discoverer AT3For a daily driver, high traction tires like the Cooper Discoverer SST is just not necessary. A good all-season/all-terrain tire like the Cooper Discoverer ST Maxx or the Cooper Discoverer A/T3 offers some important advantages over the SST when the vast majority of the driving will be on paved roads. Seeing that we will be driving the Silverado to Alaska, we have opted for a set of Cooper Discoverer A/T3 in LT285/70/17E to handle the duties of lots of loose gravel, a little mud and hard-packed crushed rock and the possibility of snow and ice in the higher elevations of Northern B.C. and the Yukon.

The folks at Dave's Automotive in Cheney, WA have fitted us with a set of these tires in preparation of the trip over the renowned Alaska Highway.

Cooper STMAXX Tires in LT285/70/17E.

Looking for a little more traction or that aggressive look for your Silverado? The Cooper STMAXX may just be the tire for you. This new tire sports an appeal to off road enthusiasts that want to tackle the sharp rocks, dig in the gooey mud or challenge the snows while exploring for a new hunting spot in the deep desolate outdoors.

The Cooper Discoverer S/TMAXX features Cooper's proven and reliable 3-ply “Armor-Tek3®” carcass construction combined with a new, proprietary cut and chip resistant tread compound. This is the tire for those looking for sure footed traction both on and off the road making it a viable alternative for our 2011 Silverado test truck.

Studdable tires are popular choices for winter driving and the Discoverer S/TMAXX are ready for the winter with plenty of pins to make this tire even a better choice for mud, snow and icy driving conditions.

Cooper Discoverer Radial STT TiresCooper Discoverer Radial STT Tires in LT285/70/17D

All the above changes have facilitated the need for a larger, more aggressive yet street drivable tire. After many hours of research and discussions with retailers and owners we have come down to the Cooper Discoverer AT3 or the Cooper Discoverer STT Tires in LT285/70/17. Either of these tires should fill the wheel wells and still offer decent gas mileage from the new 3.73 gearing.
