I have Cooper AT/3 tires in my truck. They work really well.

BFG AT tires are rick magnets. The tread collects rocks.


They are probably the worst tires for holding onto rocks until terminal velocity, for sure.
AT3 Coopers are a great all around tire. Less aggressive than, say BFG AT's but still real good in snow.

If you haven't read about Burbman's search for a dually...he is going to sell his big block 8.1L Suburban soon...

We got 60K on our original Bridgestone tires so I replaced all four with the same OEM tires. Pricey but it'll last a lifetime.


Thank you!

I’m probably going to look for a 3/4 ton Suburban in the next few years. How much payload does yours have?

Thanks!

Jeremiah

Yes I have! There are two legendary 3/4 ton Burbs out there. Yours and Burbmans! Ha ha! I have to save a bit to buy one.

Good hearing from you Ben!

Thanks!

Jeremiah....mine’s a K3500, big block 7.4L....

Tongue n cheek...cuz ordered it with the F60 option. IIRC $67 bucks for the snow plow prep option. Begets 1 ton front torsion bars and GMT400, 8.6K lb GVWR Suburbans have the same AAM rear axle as the 1 ton daully...even the same drum/shoe’s...except for the rear cylinders, which I’ve changed out (larger dia bore) and the MC (larger bore for the rear lines)

When you start looking, suggest checking the glove box door label for the F60 option, which begets the bigger drums and shoes

Good hearing from you

Well, I think I figured out Some of my interstate handling issue.

Changing the oil tonight and of course doing my normal checks.

Funny thing, when I installed the transmission cooler 3 weeks ago this tire did not look like this.

I visually checked the suspension components and everything looked good, nothing is loose. Oh well, I suppose I’ll be getting those Cooper AT3’s a little earlier than planned.

Off to the shop tomorrow to get this sorted out.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

Jeremiah
