I have run cooper Discovery at3 for years with good luck and were cept the last set.
I only got 41,000 on 65,000 tires.
I could have got through the winter if I lived way south.
Anyway I went to a little more aggressive tread and only a 60,000 tire.
All in with an alignment, mounting , balancing , full road hazard coverage, and disposal fee for $280 a tire, that with a pro rated discount for the old tires.
That's about the same price as the discovery but 5,000 less mile rating.
Keeping my fingers crossed they last 3 winters.

where are they made?  China, Twain, China?

I try to get 60-70,000 miles out of out of a new set, trying to buy them in October to get a good first winter out of them and a fair last summer out of them.

Getting tough to find good tires at a reasonable price, and quality from 3rd world countries... present set comes from Brazil!

I've had pretty good luck with Yokahama Geolanders. I'm not sure where they're made but they sound Japanese. 

I looked at Cooper but couldn't justify the higher cost. I was already putting $900 worth of tires on a $200 truck. 
I have always considered myself to be quite the bullshitter, But ocasionally it is nice to sit back and listen to a true professional......So, Carry on.

You're right Bear. I don't know what I was thinking. 

I'll probably be needing another set of tires for Rusty in a couple years. I like to run them until I can see the air in them.
