    Hey, has anyone ran cooper atws before. They look to be a pretty good affordable all terrain winter tire hybrid.

    Never ran them, but looks like it'd be a good tire if that's the style or type of tire you're going for. For me there's too many sipes. They (sipes) provide good traction on slippery surfaces, but at the same time they'll be a bit "squirrelly" when driving. With all the sipes the tread blocks are smaller and will flex easier. It's for this reason I would not want them.

    I prefer to have larger tread blocks, more stability and give up a little traction on the slick stuff.

    This is just my personal opinion, so take it as you will.

    If it means anything, I run the Falken Wildpeak AT3W's with no complaints in any weather.
