I've got 50+ yrs driving experience and find the a/t3 (235-85 16) to provide a fantastic ride in my 2015 JK.. mostly freeway driving.
There's lots of sidewall with the taller narrow profile and being an E not too stiff as many suggested. By comparison my '94 YJ with smaller rubber provided a terrible choppy ride no matter what.
The A/T3s are super quiet and grip the pavement beautifully especially in the rain. I don't drive faster than 60mph so maybe that's why they're quiet.
I find it hard to believe the negative reviews unless the tires had mfg defects.
I don't usually review anything but I'm giving my 2 bits because I'm THAT impressed!
My previous attempt at a review never went in.. what's up with that? John
New JK.. only driven 3000 kms so far, half that spent in busy PNW 'very wet' freeway driving.
[Haven't seen snow and can't comment on treadwear so disregard the low rating].
My opinion so far is that these are great tires and the 235-85 R16 I'm running on my JK are an excellent choice. I don't find the tire too stiff at all.. it's a comfortable ride and get excellent mileage. It's a very quiet tire that sticks like glue on wet/dry pavement.. couldn't be happier! The JK is superior in all respects to my old uncomfortable & loud YJ.
Great traction off road, very good on road. Road noise is louder than I expected below 50 mph but better at highway speeds 65+mph. Tread wear is great, after 8200 miles on highway and several trips on trails, the tires still look new. I have had to get the tires balanced 3 times already. MTR's are perfect for those who need the added traction for serious off-roading. Overall I like the tires, they look great and ride nice (when balanced) but I will probably get less aggressive tires next time.
