    I have them and I think they're great for the price. They grip nicely on slickrock and the roadnoise/manners are slightly better than the Nitto Ridge Grapplers I replaced with them. I don't see them lasting as long as one of the major brands as they are a softer compound, but still great if you don't daily your Jeep.

    They really haven't been out long enough to have a true long term update. Also, now that they done giving away these Chinese tires, they're not that much cheaper than a good set of name brand tires. Shop them now and you'll see they're only maybe $10 or so cheaper. Certainly, not worth it to me and they still look like ass.

    Patagonia M/T

    I have to agree with Eddie on the look. They’re just plain ugly (some rigs look ok with them).

    I have a couple of friends that run them and swear by them, one of them even had the Coopers first and still prefers the Patagonia (blasphemy, I know).
    That being said, I’ve also heard they’re very soft (bad for daily), and appear to not have a great sidewall Ridge for good cornering in dirt and sand. I’m really torn on these tires but ultimately don’t think I could bring myself to run them. I’d go with a Ridge/Trail Grappler, STT Pro, Toyo m/t, or even Maxxis Razr first. And seeing as I’ve only run 1 of those 5 I have a long way to go before the Patagonia makes my list

    Patagonia M/T

    To the OP.
    I think there are better options out there and as stated above, they are going up in price and being that a said “YouTube” channel is running them for free, they are somewhat inclined to only show the good and not the bad. Eddies long term testing of the STT pro that a lot of us are running is worth the watch. Especially considering he paid for every set and isn’t obligated to any kind of review let alone a positive one. Nothing wrong with getting an opinion on them, but there are better and much more proven options.

    The only reason you think they look ok on those rigs is that you are distracted by the seat cover.
    When you look at the tires, they still look bad.

    LOL!! Full disclosure - not "every set". But, make no mistake, it was we who did the purchasing FIRST and there's no way could make up the shit you've seen in our pics and videos over the last 3 years. As a way of saying thanks, Cooper has since helped us out a bit and they did send us a set of their new AT3's to test out on our Duramax. Clearly, people can believe what they want but if you trust that I'm a man of my word, I can assure you that I would still buy and recommend Cooper even if they hadn't shown us a little appreciation. Of course, I could say the same about other tires that are made in America such as Toyo and Nitto.

    One of the guys I rode with Saturday was running a set on his LJ and they seemed to work pretty decently. I don’t personally think I would run them because my coopers at 35% tread were hooking up just as well as his were at almost full tread.

    To add more info to this post, I’ve been driving on the snow and ice for the past few days and they have performed better than expected. Tons of traction. Difficult to break the tires loose. Maybe that’s just the 3.8. Wear still seems consistent throughout the tires. Still pleased. IMG_4404.jpg

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
