Michelin has been making quality tires for trucks, vans and
SUV's for many years now, and this new LTX M/S 2 may arguably be their best yet. This new generation M/S2 offers
the latest in tread design and tire technology to provide for years of trouble-free use. It is a night and day
difference from the LTX M/S model that was an earlier best-seller as well.
The all-season tread compound is silica enhanced and designed to prolong tread
life, while also shortening braking distance. Featuring a symmetric tread design, the tire sports 3-D Active Sipes
that deliver better handling and performance on dry road surfaces, as well as on rain soaked roads.
Whether the road is wet, snow or slush covered, the four wide circumferential
grooves around the tread combine with lateral grooves and shoulder slots to expel water from under the tire and
enhance traction and grip. Many drivers have commented that this model makes driving in the rain or snow feel just
like driving on dry pavement. That's the kind of added confidence Michelin was wanting to provide.
Michelin's Max-Touch Technology gives the tire a wider tread contact patch and
distributes the forces of acceleration, braking and cornering more evenly for better steering control and response.
It is also responsible for increasing ride comfort by eliminating road noise and giving a more smooth
Inside the tire you will find two high-tensile steel belts reinforced with
spirally wrapped nylon for added strength and durability. For those needing to haul heavy loads, there are three
steel belts on Load Range D and E sized tires. A 70,000 mile treadwear warranty is also included with this

This Michelin tire is not only fun to drive on, but it gets our vote as the best
all-season truck/suv tire for city/highway use. Everything about this tire is quality and performance. The handling
and traction on dry, wet and snow covered roads is superb. Steering response is excellent, and the ride is as you
would expect from a Michelin tire; smooth, quiet and comfortable.
Yes, the tire is not cheap by any means, but with the quality and long tread life
you receive, the value is outstanding. There is a reason why you see review after review from other tire owners all
saying how happy they are with this Michelin tire…because it really is that good.
The LTX M-S2 has a 6-year or 70,000 mile treadlife warranty. There is also a
one-year or first 2/32 inch of wear guarantee on the tire's uniformity.
Materials and workmanship are warranted for 6-years and include first year or
first 2/32inch of wear free tire replacement. A prorated amount is applied for the remaining time period or down to
the final 2/32 inch of tread depth.
