I fitted this set of Cooper Discoverer AT 205/80 R16s in December 2007, to replace the cheap Chinese knobblies that were on my Series I; they were scalloped and had to go.
The Coopers have been a definite improvement. The dramatic drop in road noise was awesome. Handling and braking were much improved too, and they've done their duty on a circumnavigation of Iceland and numerous other treks.
On-road they remain extremely good, even in the wet, Off-road they can still impress, particularly in dry, grippy situations, though deep, cloying mud has always defeated them. They still have 5-6mm of tread left, but now I'm looking for a new set of tyres.
Verdict: Excellent on-road, impressive off-road.
