You may have a tough time finding info on the Rocky Mountain ATS because it is specific to Discount Tire. If you search for the Wildpeak you will find what you are looking for. They are the same tire just a different name.

They are great on the street and highway. I notice there is better control than the wrangler sra's. Had them for about 2-3 months. Friend of mine who doesn't really show up here often, turned me on to them. Got them from Marcus at RCO for a great price.

i have them in the 33in flavor on my gmc2500. nice and smooth on the highway, quiet, good in the rain and good on dirt roads. i've read they are good on the rocks also but no first hand experience. had them in mud but wasnt going fast enough to make them clean themselves out so i slid around a little but wasnt too bad. i may try them out on my jeep when the nittos wear out.

I have 37" on my jeep. They did very well in the snow and road manners are as good or better then any of the road tires I've had. Off-road they work unbelievably well for a A/T tire. Very strong sidewalls, my MT/r's sidewalls scuffed up more. They really hook up great on the rocks. I don't play in the deep mud but the little bit that I have been in I haven't had any trouble with.

Had a set on my Tundra and I have to say they were the worst tires I have ever owned.

Maybe it's the IFS on the Tundra; who knows, but after 5k miles they looked like 50k miles, and were all over the road from day 1.

After a LONG fight with Falken, they eventually replaced them with another set.

Just as bad.

They blamed my truck which I had checked out at 2 shops with zero problems. Even the folks at Big O and Discount Tire said they are cheap for a reason.

Just my .02 but I would steer clear.

When I first had them put on my gmc 3500 I hated it. After a thousand or so miles on them they are night and day difference. I'm really happy with them now.

Love them on the XK. If they made a 40", I'd have them on the JK.

Every review I read, owners love them.

I just cant get over the fact that they look like a highway tread.

How do they compare to a BFG AT?

I agree with you 100%. I don't know why I'm really even thinking about it. I'll probably end up spending the extra money and getting Goodyear duratrac
