So it's 5 deg F outside here at my house in Western MA tonight. My R51 resides outside I keep my 2013 Mustang in the garage and my wife's Toyota occupies the other spot. Man I hate starting my Pathfinder in this cold weather! I esp don't like having to let it warm up as long as I have to due to my health issues the cold is a problem for me. "Just ranting"

Happy to report that my new TutuApp Lucky Patcher Kodi Cooper Discover AT/3's are better in the snow then I expected. I was surprised that even in 4x2 my Pathfinder has excellent traction and I feel the traction control is set up just about perfect letting me have slight wheel spin before progressively kicking in. My 2006 Toyota 4Runner was a joke when the traction control kicked in if the wheels spun it would kick in and you would not go anywhere! It would just sit there no matter how hard you mashed the go pedal! It was actually dangerous.

Good to hear it!
I always believe the 4x2 were still something to be reckoned with given their great ground clearance and approach and breakover angles..
And one can make up for being 4x2 with the most grippiest tires ..

Cool Good to hear. I just got a set of Mastercraft Courser AXT tires a few months ago. Someone on the forums told me it's an off brand by Cooper and it looks exactly like the Discover AT3.

Got them on sale for $115 each from Walmart last April.

They are essentially the same tire (other than the name on the sidewall), make in the USA at the same plant. I'm not sure if it's still the case, but the Discoverer AT3 used to have a little better warranty than the Mastercraft (I think they gave you another 5,000 miles), but you pay a little more, as well.
