Canadians-Anyone ever use Crappy Tire Motomaster AT/2s?

So my daily beater (2002 Silverado) needs some new tires, and I'd like to fit it with some all-terrains. Normally my reaction would be to just buy BFG T/A KO2s or General Grabber AT/2s, but the small problem is that my Jeep ALSO needs new tires this year and, frankly, I just can't afford to buy 10 large-size BFGs or Generals all at once.

But right now the Motomaster AT2s are on sale for $130 a corner, and a quick Googling showed that they actually sound like decent tires for the price-apparently rebranded Coopers. I wouldn't want them for a dedicated offroad vehicle, but for my daily driver that I just want some decent agressive tires for bumping around on trails and access roads on occasion, they seem decent.

I had them put on my daily driver last fall and so far I like em. Price was definitely right. Tiny bit more road noise than the previous all-season road tires (to be expected), but the AT/2 performed much better on my 2wd Ranger over the winter. The 80,000km life didn't bother me because the last tires only had that many KM on them and were replaced due to age and dry-rot, not tread wear (I only put on 8000km a year).

Can't comment on off road capability, but they're decently knobby.

I detest any Motomaster tires, but if they're rebranded Coopers, you might be ok.

They weren't on my radar either, I was looking at more expensive BF, Bridgestone, General Tire, Toyo, etc. But there is a landslide of positive reviews on this particular CrappyTire, so I gave them a shot.

That's where I've kinda been at, normally I'd never drive on store-brands but these ones seemed to be the exception

Don't know if they are related but I have MasterCraft Cooper's and they are good so far.

I have Coopers on my car and Yokohama Geolanders on my Yukon.

Geolanders are holding up well and not noticeable driving. Not sure if they are knobby
enough but they have 20k miles so far and still bite when needed.

Im using Treadwright Guard Dogs on my Jeep, which are a recycled core and new tread (slightly different than a re-tread). Their 32" version was awesome on my XJ, and now run a set of 30's on the other XJ, but they are not as good in the new formula in the winter. On warm days, they stick well.
