Michelin LTX M/S Tires Replaced by New LTX M/S2

In the Highway All-Season tire category, the Michelin LTX M/S, has been replaced by a newer version called the Michelin LTX M/S2

As you can see, there is not much difference in tread pattern between three of Michelin's Highway All-Season tires, (the third being the LTX A/S): 

Michelin LTX A/S
Michelin LTX M/S
Michelin LTX M/S2

While there does not appear to be much change on the outside of the tire, there are other improvements that make the LTX M/S2 a great choice and worth the replacement of the old LTX M/S: 
  • Smoother and quieter ride
  • Better wet traction
  • Better dry grip
  • Longer tread wear
  • Improve traction in snow and on ice
Given these improvements, it is no surprise that this tire has shot right up to the top of our Tire Survey Results

I have Michelin LT 265 70R 10 ply tires now. I need 5 tires at a good cost. Which high milage tire do you suggest and what be total cost plus shipping to 77564 zip?

I have ran the LTX M/S for years and usually got about 74,000 miles out of a set. I recently installed new sets on both of my Nissan Armada and at 34,000 miles they are down to 2/32s. there is definitely an issue with the wear on these tires.
