The ATs are different to the AT2s, and not really that aggressive in pattern, certainly not out and out mud pluggers.
Remember that in 19inch size I didn't have much choice in what to go for.
I'm glad I did though. Now they are well and truly scrubbed in they appear to have much better wet road grip than the Pirelli Scorpions that they replaced, are NOT noisy at all, and are wearing really well.
On wet grass, mud and gravel they are in a completely different league to the scorpions. There's a couple of green lanes around here that flood quite badly after heavy rain, and get very muddy from off roaders and farm traffic, and the combination of the D3 and the ATs always surprises me.
I am completely convinced that finally there is a decent All Terrain Tyre that performs well in all but serious Off Road conditions, yet gives good road manners without the noise and bad handling you expect from an AT tyre on the road.
Oh, they were great in the snow and ice, and I think they look cool too
