Cooper Adventurer A/T Tire Review & Rating

The Cooper Adventurer A/T is yet another variation of the Cooper A/T3 that is sold exclusively by Pep Boys, although it’s also available on sites like Amazon. Built for all types of pickups, SUV’s and other 4×4’s, the Adventurer AT combines rugged off-road performance to go with more civilized manners when driving on the street or highway.

A tougher high-tech cut and chip resistant tread compound is matched up with a 5-rib tread pattern that features numerous lateral grooves for enhanced off-road handling. The tire’s buttress design with alternating shoulder scallops add to the rugged good looks and gives this tire increased traction when traveling off road.

Cooper Adventurer AT Review

Four wide circumferential grooves and added sipes effectively channel away rain water to improve grip on wet road surfaces, while also minimizing hydroplane risks. Traction on dry or wet pavement is a plus for this tire and often mentioned by others in reviews of this tire. Another benefit to the sipes and the aggressive tread pattern is that is provides increased traction on snow and ice.

The Cooper Adventurer A/T tire is available in a range of 15-20 inch LT sizes. A 50K mile tread warranty is also included on all sizes.


  • Excellent dry and wet traction
  • More than capable off-road performance in light to moderate terrain
  • Quiet and comfortable ride quality
  • Good treadlife


  • Not a heavy-duty rock climber or mud bogger
  • Price may be a concern with budget-minded drivers

Overall Thoughts

If you’re thinking that the Cooper Adventurer AT looks similar to tires like the Cooper AT3, RTX or Mastercraft AXT, you’d be right. Cooper has 5-6 iterations of its AT3 that they produce for various distributors. For example, the Adventurer AT is exclusive to Pep Boys, while the ATP is sold through Discount Tire, and the RTX through National Tire and Battery. All feature only a slight variation in the tread pattern but are essentially the same tire.

Like the AT3, this model delivers excellent traction and handling on dry or wet roads. Winter traction is up to the task in all but the most severe of snow and ice conditions. Off road, this tire tackles light terrain as good as the better tires in its class. No, it’s not for serious rock climbing or mud bogging use, but that’s not what the vast majority of drivers are looking for in an all-terrain tire.

Overall, with its good traction and handling, ride comfort and longer lasting treadlife, the Adventurer A/T ranks in the upper half of the AT category and is highly recommended.

  1. >> Not a heavy-duty rock climber …

    You can say that again. With about100 miles on the tires from a standing stop I rubbed a curb penetrating the side wall destroying the tire.

    If these tires cannot survive suburbia I have zero confidence in them on a trail.

  2. After reading the comments here, my experience was very different. I bought a set of 31.5x 10.5×15 for a first gen Tacoma. I have absolutely no complaints, smooth quiet ride. After forty thousand miles three years later I still had lots of tread life left. Maybe my vehicle was lighter than some here but no complaints.

  3. these tires howl like crazy,, and terrible in wet never mind light snow.
    worst tire ive ever had on a vehicle,\ will probably never by cooper tires again.

  4. “Sing like a church choir” is a great way to describe what we’re experiencing, after having these tires for about a year, now. No, I’m NOT competition writing a negative review. In fact, the tire wear has been good. About what we’d expect. But, the noise has increased over time. You’ll find similar comments on other review sites.

  5. I dont know what they are talking about noise after wear. Why would noise go up with less tread? I have had many on different vehicles. I would guess these noise reports are fake, sent by competition. Coopers are USA and very price competitive.

    1. Hi
      Tread depth according to the information provided on Coopers website tells us that the tread depth on a new tire is about 13/32. In the United States a tire is considered to be legally worn out when its remaining tread depth is 2/32. Let us know if we can help you further.

        1. Hi Dean, thanks for commenting. I definitely am looking to know more about how these tires perform under different road conditions.

  6. I agree with Browneye & Tony Cino. I’ve noticed that the road noise has increased as the mileage has gone up, which now I have about 15k on them.
