Chevy Silverado Tires

Tuesday, August 7th 2012. | Review

Chevy Silverado Tires – While trying to replace the stock tires on the Silverado, right from the beginning we knew we have been destined for a difficult task. We wanted a tire that has great freeway characteristics on each wet and dry asphalt but we additionally need a tire that does much more when the pavement ends and the pavement is changed by dirt and gravel or turns to mud and clay.

The Cooper Discoverer AT3 designation based on Cooper stands for “All Traction, All Terrain, All the Time!” From the tundra in Alaska to the arroyos of Arizona, we plan to test this analogy as we put the Silverado and Coopers to a brutal take a look at of varied terrains and driving conditions.

First impressions: When the Cooper AT3 tires first arrived we had been instantly happy with the bold seems to be and quality development of those new tires. The deep lugs and intelligent sample for an all-goal tire immediately challenged us to see simply how nicely these tires dwell up to their advertising. Can an all-terrain tire actually deliver a whisper quiet, smooth, highway journey with out sacrificing any of the off street capabilities? Can the Cooper AT3 actually energy by means of moderately deep mud and soft bottomless sand with out getting caught trying? And what about those sharp rocks we find in Idaho’s Sawtooth Mountains or the slippery sandstone across Arizona’s vast boondocks? Follow along as we’re about to find out firsthand how the Cooper AT3’s do in all these situations and more.

Mounting up the LT285/70/17E 10 ply’s we checked out the tremendous easy, silky like trip while traveling down the Cheney-Spangle road in the direction of the Turnbull Wild Life Refuge. Accelerating up to 60 mph, we can not detect any extreme road noise from the Cooper AT3’s and the trip was truly as easy as advertised. That was a shock seeing we had simply moved up from a 4 ply radial to these 10 ply truck tires. A transparent-lower enhancement in cornering mixed with the light steering effort on the pavement made these tires a clear reduce winner over stock.

Now turning into the Turnbull Wild Life Refuge we took the 5 mile gravel loop to see how nicely these tires handled on unfastened gravel roads. What we have been really looking at was to see if the 10 ply tires transferred the shock of rocks over to the steering. As expected, the Cooper AT3 tires did however the feel was lower than expected. Some of the credit for this goes to Chevrolet and some lies in the Cooper tires themselves. Regardless, this is a very good marriage of tires to trucks.
