The best-selling Michelin Light Truck Tire is the LTX M/S2. This tire offers exceptional performance for light trucks and SUVs. The LTX M/S2 stops shorter for added safety with special rubber compounds and better lateral water evacuation to help you stop up to 7 feet sooner than leading competitors' tires. Michelin has designed this tire to last up to 20,000 more miles than leading competitor?s tires. MaxTouch construction maximizes the tire's contact with the road and evenly distributes the forces of acceleration, braking and cornering to deliver miles of driving pleasure. Better Snow Traction Tread design features 8 percent more biting edges than its predecessor for improved grip in snow.
Drove 50K miles on it so far, and there is still plenty tread left for another 50K! Before I bought I them, I read reviews that people drove 80 - 100K+ miles on them. I'm getting there.
Since I had them, I aligned the car only once. (Note: I don't go 4-wheeling.) In the last 3 years, one got plugged due to a nail, another was hit straight on in a lateral car accident (breaking the arm behind the tire). $6000 later, I could still say they are rolling along fine and are in great shape. I got them 1 size wider than the standard tire size suggested for my 06 Toyota RAV4, hence the alloy rim got away with only ONE scratch!
I'm determined to buy the same tires again, unless I know the car will die before the tires' life-span.
A hear a little road noise when driving on the highway, but that's quite normal and not louder than the stock tires it came with. If I didn't want to hear any road-noise, I would have bought a luxury car instead. So, plz send ... :)
