What is the difference between the two? A SUV/truck tire is more ruggedly constructed in both sidewall and tread base than the typical car tire. This is due to the higher weight and center of gravity found on your typical SUV, truck and crossover. In most cases, I recommend staying with the same type as found on the vehicle originally. Also, switching to a car constructed tire from a SUV model may soften the ride and cause less responsiveness to your steering inputs. Additionally, since the higher center of gravity results in more force exerted on the outer edges of the tread during transitions (lane change, curves and corners), you may experience quicker wear on the shoulders. Uneven wear does negate tread life warranties.

Michelin LTX M/S2
The Michelin LTX M/S2 is the next evolution of the legendary LTX M/S. I say legendary based on conversations with many customers over the years about this product. "Best tire I ever owned" is a phrase commonly heard as well as frequent tread life reports in the 80 - 100K mile range. The M/S2 is a mild product revamp with even longer lasting tread life expectancies. Michelin is offering a 70K mile limited treadlife warranty. The Michelin LTX M/S2 is currently the top-rated tire in our Tire Survey Results.
