Michelin LTX A/T 2 - An All-Terrain When You Need It

Thursday, December 15, 2011 by Hunter Leffel
Michelin LTX A/T 2If your truck spends 20 - 40% of the time off the beaten path, an all-terrain tire should be in your future and the Michelin LTX A/T 2 may be the perfect answer. Delivering a good looking, long-lasting tire from a reputable brand known for engineering excellence defines the LTX A/T 2.

Michelin made significant gains and improvements over the A/T 2's predecessor in several key areas. The implementation of a new tread compound results in a 30% increase in chip and tear resistance and 35% more life on gravel. Other improvements include better wet and dry handling and resistance to irregular wear. A 60,000 mile treadlife warranty is also standard for a set of these pickup tires.

Based on the different uses of a vehicle requiring an LT-rated tire, a slightly different pattern is used compared to the P-metric versions. This includes a deeper shoulder block appearance, a smaller shoulder groove and a sipe that goes the full length of the tread block.

Even though these Michelin tires are made for the rugged side of life, you still want a quiet and comfortable ride for those on-road duties. Michelin Comfort Control Technology uses computer optimized design and manufacturing to reduce noise and vibrations. You'll find these pickup truck tires as Original Equipment on the new Ford and Chevy pickups.

Take a look at the sizes and pricing available for this On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tire and see if it's the right match for your recreational or commercial pickup, van or SUV.
