Just switched to a set of Michelin LTX M/S2 after having started with some BFGoodrich Rugged Terrains. The Rugged Terrains were louder than expected, harsher riding, and two of the four ended up being defective. However, once switching to the Michelin LTX M/S2 it was a dramatic improvement. These tires offer a comfortable ride and are QUIET! I haven't had them long yet but look forward to seeing how they handle in wet conditions and snow/ice conditions. I will try to post a followup sometime in the future but so far I highly recommend this tire!
