Michelin LTX M/S
Follow-Up Review: 18,000 miles on tires
after 18,000 miles on tires they began to show cracking on all the tires sidewalls. Was informed by 2 different shops that the tires were deteriorating and would need replaced. Went to shop where I paid the $900 to purchase the tires and was mostly dissatisfied that the tires were not replaced at no cost or minimal cost. The Michelin M/S2 were installed for @$550 my cost. The M/S2's are awesome tires in every way, superior to the M/S tires.
Initial Review: 5,500 miles on tires
Michelins LTX M/S replaced the Goodyear Fortera Triple Treads that had only 8K miles on them. The Michelins are as advertised from reviews on the online tire review websites and tire installer website reviews. This tire is an all around excellent tire. Queit, handles well, basically does everything well. No snow experience to report, mainly highway. Owners with large SUVs said they are having great results from these tires even though the tire technology is aging. If it works then no reason to change it. After two sets of Goodyear TTs these tires I can live with. You wont be disappointed.
