Question tire selection

I just had a quick question about tires for a '98 Blazer. I have never bought Cooper tires before for any of my vehicles but I am considering their Discovery A/T tire for my suv. From what I can tell it is a quality tire and you don't have to throw money away because of excess advertising. Does anyone have any opinion on the quality of Cooper compared to a wrangler or michelin etc.

I looked at tirerack.com, unfortunately they don't review Cooper tires.

cooper tires are OK, ya might try epinions.com or consumer reports for a rating, maybe just google for cooper tire ratings.

Cooper is a top of the line American made tire. I sold and used them for years. Obviously they're not on the same level as Michelin but they don't cost anywhere near as much either. The Discover A/T is a fine all terrain tire but like any all terrrain tire, it's not as quiet as a highway tread but sound is always a sacrifice for better traction in any tire.

Cooper is a good tire, as are the others you mentioned. Keep in mind that when buying all-terrain tires, you usually lose tire life and warranty miles vs road tires. (they don't last as long, generally).
