I was looking for tires to replace the Goodyear Fortera's on my wife's traverse. I was considering ATX MS2's but they aren't offered in the original size of 255/65/18. I went into a tire store and the I asked the owner. He explained he had put a set of them on wife's traverse a year ago and was very pleased. He took me outback to see his wife's traverse. He had put 265/65/18's on and that's what I bought. I couldn't be happier with them. They are much quieter, smoother running than the Goodyears and based on what other people are saying they are going last a lot longer than the 30,000 miles I got out of the Goodyears. If you are considering upgrading to these tires on your Traverse this is the size to use.
