    Quick question for you all.

    Due to some vibrations on my steering wheel I have been looking at changing tires.

    I don't know much about tires, but from what I've been reading, the stock Bridgestone tires are garbage.

    Question for you guys, do you think the Cooper AT3 4S tires will be smoother and better riding than the stock tires? Especially since the Cooper tires are an all terrain tire, and the stock ones are a street/highway tire.

    I'd precipitate the feedback.

    Thanks

    I guess it depends on what you want to do with your 4runner. If you are staying more to the streets then I would go Michelin, they have always rode well and been quiet.

    Mainly streets yeah. But sometimes on the weekends I do some light off roading.

    life is all about compromises, you need to decide if you want a softer smoother ride or more of a "truck" feel I guess. I have not run those particular coopers but I have run lots of others and I've always been happy with them. My only complaint is they are sometimes a little louder than other comparable tires, even in their car offerings. I think those Coopers would probably strike a nice balance of playing in the dirt and road manners, I've been looking at those and some other options lately myself. Good luck, if you go with these I'd be curious to hear what you think of them

    Thanks. I can deal with the ride being more bumpy and even louder, I am just wondering if itll make my steering wheel smoother/less vibration.
