Michelin LTX A/T 2 Tire Review & Rating
The Michelin LTX A/T 2 is the company’s premium all-terrain tire that is built to provide superior off-road performance without sacrificing on-road traction and driving comfort. Michelin has designed the LTX A/T 2 for drivers of all types of pickups, SUV’s and vans who need a tire that meets demanding road conditions.
A stronger truck tread compound combines with Michelin Biting Edges technology that adds notched blocks in the tread pattern to give the tire increased traction on gravel, dirt, mud, snow and other light terrain. With load range options of D and E available, the tire has up to three steel belts for added strength and puncture resistance during off-road use.
The A/T 2 features a larger tread contact patch to enhance grip and stability during highway driving. Ride comfort is increased through Michelin’s Comfort Control Technology, which uses a computer-optimized tread design to dramatically reduce road noise and increase ride comfort. It’s a combination that is very effective on this model as ride comfort is among the best in class.
Inside the tire you will find two high-tensile steel belts for added strength and durability. Michelin’s exclusive Max-Touch Construction promotes more even treadwear and a longer overall treadlife. This is something that many tire owners have mentioned as being exceptional with this tire. The A/T 2 is available in 15-20 inch sizes, and has a black sidewall or optional raised white letters.
- Light terrain traction and handling is excellent
- Very good snow performance
- Ride is more comfortable than you might expect
- Exceptional tread life
- A little extra road noise on the highway
Michelin has put together an excellent all-terrain tire in the A/T2. Off-road traction is more than capable on a variety of different terrains, although it arguably lacks the brute strength of a tire like the BFGoodrich T/A KO2 and a few others. However, while it may not be an off-road beast so to speak… it more than makes up for it with its all-around traction and handling on or off the beaten path.
Sure, there is a little road noise on the highway, but nothing that would force you to crank up the radio. It more than holds its own on wet or snow covered road surfaces, and the ride is surprisingly good for an A/T tire. These traits are among the best in class.
One area that is simply outstanding for this tire is its longer treadlife. Many reviews from other owners mention seeing up to 100K miles out of the tread. In fact, we’ve heard a few drivers speak to seeing 150K miles from the tread. In addition, this tire is one of the best models you’ll find for driving on gravel roads.
Overall, you can’t go wrong with putting this tire on your truck, van or SUV. We rank it among the top tires in this class. It simply does not disappoint.
