It has always been worth the extra money for peace of mind when it comes to buying tires. Therefore, I have always bought Michelins. I bought the LTX A/T 2 tires to replace the junk Bridgestones that came with my Tundra at 28,000 miles. The Michelins looked great and performed great at first. However, at about 30,000 miles I noticed a lot of treadwear around the outer edges of each tire and noise was increasing while handling was decreasing. I've managed to get another 20,000 miles out of them but they look terrible now and I honestly don't feel comfortable driving on them with my family along. I rotate and check tire pressure as recommended. I know that 50,000 miles on a 4x4 pickup is not bad, but for the money I expected more from Michelin. I will probably try the LTX M/S tires next. Michelin is still my brand of choice, but I won't buy the LTX A/T tires again.
