Well....I'm pretty much even more confused with this Cooper ATP in the mix now. I get the impression that it's kinda a cross between the new AT3, and the Zeon LTZ. The reason I say this is that the technical specs are so similar to the AT3 as far as warranty, treadwear, traction, and load rating. Even when you read the narrative about it on Discount Tire's website, it claims to be made out of a silica base material similar to the AT3. I have to say....I'm really liking them even more, and I can't believe that I've overlooked them. Probably because I was doing all my research on Cooper's website where they don't exist.
Since they are only on Discount Tire's website, but buddy's shop can't even get them if I wanted them. Turns out, his price on Cooper (although good), aren't much better than if I order from Discount Tire Direct, and shipped them free to the house (Zeon or AT3)
The Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo2 are on backorder (apparently another popular tire), and my buddy can't even get me the Cooper Discoverer ATP. I'd feel like d*ck ordering from Discount Tire even though he can't get that tire....but seriously...WTF? I finally narrow it down to a couple tires, and I can't even get them.
Gotta figure something out fairly quick, as my other buddy is getting impatient as I rack up the miles on my HP's.
Thanks for all the info guys....much appreciated!
