I’ve wondered about those. They’re kinda like the first gen BFG’s

I had a set of Grabber A/T 2s on my little Chevy Tracker and was well satisfied with their performance on paved roads, some light off road, as well as snow and ice, but the tread did wear down to where they needed to be replaced at about 10k miles short of the manufacture's mileage rating.

Looks like the coopers I liked are Chi-coms so they’re out.


Go to Tirerack.com, enter the size tire you need. Pull up the specs on any tire that interests you, it'll list the country of manufacture. There are quite a few American-made tires, contrary to popular belief.

I run those on my Frontier, and they're great in snow, and pretty good in rain, too, except when it's raining REALLY hard. I bought some in October about four years ago, and drove out to Missouri in November, when they got a bad, bad snowstorm for deer season. I never spun a tire even in the snow and ice. I had reason to drive to KC, and they worked well on the highway, I passed a LOT of cars, trucks and SUVs piloted by morons who didn't know how to drive in the snow and had spun out into the median (I-70). I didn't even have extra weight in the bed (2WD), but I never spun a tire and didn't feel a bit worried about traction.

We had a deluge situation a couple of weeks ago, coming home from visiting my ailing mother, when the bottom fell out of the sky, and it rained so hard that RainX and new wiper blades couldn't keep up with the rain, and the now older Yokohamas spun going UPhill on the water running down the road. That scared me a lot worse than the snow somewhat earlier. No tires could have done better, though, I think fish could have lived on that highway.

There is a Cooper Plant somewhere around Texarkana. I drove by it a couple of weeks ago.

They’re an American owned company but some of the tires are made in chai-Na. I thought the same thing as you, but I googled cooper rugged trek and it says they’re farmed out.


That would suck. I watched a review that said they were made in Arkansas, so I bought some.


I checked the Cooper Discoverer Rugged Trek on Tire Rack and they say USA origin:

I have these on a 2018 4runner. They were rated as the #1 tire by tire rack when I got them. I don't think they are very good in the snow, a bit noisy, wearing fast, and worst had a super hard time to balance. I won't get these again at any price. They had me stuck for a few hours last winter in some nice ice and snow. I think a better tire would have pulled out. I am really amazed these were a top line tire. My factory tires were a lot better, and got more mileage to boot.

My Toyo Open Country AT 3s are a damn good tire and say Made in USA on the side wall. I have them on my 2017 F250 Diesel with about 10k on them and show very little wear! Absolutely great tire in the snow and ice last year and are much more quiet on the road than my last set of BFGs!

I keep them at 65psi and rotate every 5k.

I had 55K miles on the pair that was on my last truck when I sold it. They still looked like they were going to go another 50K.

From tires to bullets, ratings and reviews are a crap shoot. I read them with a healthy dose of interpretation. Most reviews are worthless. And there is always the chance you simply get a set from a bad lot.

Nitto ridge grapplers are my current go to for an all around AT tire. I have 35k on the set on my f350 diesel and expect I would get atleast 50k from them but that truck is due to be traded in as soon as my new f350 is built. It too will get Ridge Grapplers

Had a set of Hankook ATMs on my truck for over four years and all but 60K miles. Would've still passed inspection, but it was October and I ain't much for going into winter with minimal tread. Good wear, fair wet traction, pretty good in snow, mud and on icy roads.

Replaced them with a donated set of Bridgestone AT Duelers with about 3/4s tread left. Not my cup of tea and no comparison to the Hankooks. Debating what to replace those with this fall, now on a limited income since I'm retired. Probably get one more year out of the truck, so expensive tires aren't on the menu?


If three or more people think you're a dimwit, chances are at least one of them is right.
