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 ride.
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 tire.
Dry and wet surface traction and handling are among best in class
Steering response and control are sure and precise
Ride comfort is superb
Excellent treadlife and a 70,000 mile warranty
Hard to find any on this tire
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
