It's time for new tires for my Suburban. My primary concern is ride quality, as my wife has fibromyalgia and is very sensitive to that. I'm trying to decide between Michelin LTX A/T or LTX M/S, and Cooper Discoverer AT or HT. I've heard from a number of folks who use the Michelins, but I haven't heard from anyone but salesmen about these particular Coopers. How can I know for sure that they'll be as comfortable as the Michelins?

The LTX M/S would be an excellent choice for your Suburban if you are driving mostly on the street and hardpack trails - the LTX A/T will be better in the loose stuff if you're going to be two-tracking. The M/S will last longer though and ride better, which may be important to you given the weight of your vehicle.

I don't know much about the Coopers. They probably cost less, since the Michelins run toward the high side, but given your wife's condition, why take a chance?

Another tire which is real popular on your car is the BFG Long Trail TA. It's got an asymetrical tread which is supposed to provide benefits for both on and off road. Since it is offered as OEM on new Suburbans, it probaly offers a good ride. If $$ is a strong factor, in your decision, I'd take a look at the BFG's before considering the Coopers. I've seem them discounted oftern at Sam's Club, and they offer free rotation and flat fixing!
