Michelin LTX M/S2
Follow-Up Review: 10,900 miles on tires
Treadwear still measures at 12/32, I believe these tires will last as long as my old Michelins which went over 130,000 miles (255/70R16s). Ride and noise comfort is exceptional, a very serene truck tire. There is some minor apparent sidewall flex under hard cornering/streering transitions, but still very good in this regard. Dry traction is extremely good and wet traction is simply remarkable, wet traction was the biggest improvement in the transition from M/S to M/S² IMHO. With the LTX M/S² all of the desirable LTX M/S traits seemingly remain while wet traction has improved markedly. The LTX M/S²s are great tires and I would buy them again in a heartbeat!
Initial Review: 150 miles on tires
Just initial impressions, these tires replaced a set 135,000 mile 2003 model year Michelin X Radial LTs. Dry and wet traction have improved considerably, as expected from a new tire as opposed to 130+K 8 year old tires. Road noise, steering response, and ride comfort are standard LTX M/S fare, which is to say superb. If these LTX M/S2s wear like the X Radial LTs (same tire as the LTX M/S of the period, just a different tread pattern), then I doubt I will ever buy anything but LTXs for any truck I own. I will post updates regarding treadwear.
