Michelin LTX M/S2
Follow-Up Review: 15,000 miles on tires
After 15K and a winter my update is BUY! Great in snow, very pleased with tread wear, rotating every 6-7K, Vehicle now has 216K and it rides like new thanks to the LTX M/S2s and new shocks and struts. Outstanding braking and hydroplane resistance. My only complaint about this tire is that isn't made in a size that fits my 10 CRV! These tires were purchased from Tire Rack, arrived quickly, installed at NTB - nice job.
Initial Review: 3,500 miles on tires
Since Pilot EX (now 205K miles) was new we have struggled finding a great tire for all conditions that kept the cabin quiet. FINALLY - this Michelin has impressed the entire family and is much better than 3 previous sets of Goodyear Fortera's that only resulted in 45-50K miles and original Duelers. VERY QUIET, Great cornering, use vehicle to tow 20FT boat and still smooth and strong. Great highway tire. to soon to judge tread life and have not driven in snow yet will update after a few New England snow storms and ski trips. Some might not like the white raised letters but the those can be turned inside. Great looking tire. For this vehicle and tire size I don't find these overly expensive compared to competition and believe road hazard insurance is worth the peace of mind.
