Michelin has a number of very good truck/SUV tires in their lineup and we believe the LTX A/T 2 is one of the best. Not only does this tire make easy work of all types of terrain off the beaten path, but the ride comfort and low road noise this tire provides is among best in class. There’s a reason why this model is also found as original equipment on so many different trucks and SUV’s… because it’s performance is that good.

34 thoughts on “Top 10 All-Terrain Tires

  1. I have the Firestone Transforce AT and I hate these tires. I am looking for something else with good comfort ride, holds to the road good in wet or dry conditions. That will give me good mileage also. Any suggestions would be appreciated

  2. You need to put the Hankook ATM on here. I have a 2000 Ford Excursion 4×4 7.3 diesel with 285-75r16 on it. I am about to purchase my 3rd set. My first set I got 92,000 miles out of them. I am now at 96,000 miles on my 2nd set. I know everyone is saying BS. I run 68 psi in each tire except when I’m pulling my 24′ enclosed car trailer or 30′ travel trailer, then everything goes to 80 psi. Tires are rotated and balanced every 5-6K miles. These are great in rain, snow and ice. This is MY experience with the tires not yours. Sorry for the attitude but you know how people like to say you’re full of BS when they don’t agree with you. Again great tires. I hope the new ATM’s are as good as the old ones.

  3. need recommendations for all season tires for jeep grand cherokee–live near Buffalo–“Snowvember”=7 feet of snow–need tires that will handle, heavy deep snow, freezing rain, ice, mud, hills–rural area where the plows don’t necessarily do a good job….thank you!!

  4. looking to purchase all season tires for my jeep grand cherokee–live in suburb of Buffalo–remember “Snowvember”–7 feet of snow–need something that does well in deep snow, ice, mud, etc. any recommendations—besides stay home–thank you!!

  5. Is there any reason you did not include the Pirelli Scorpion All Terrain Plus in the top 10 AT tyres? Your review on Jan 17 2020 by Ian Haynes seemed to give them a good review.

  6. In Florida the Michelin LTX AT2 dryrotted between the treads and near the rims. Also, the inside and outside lugs chunked off; this started about 18 months after installation and continued until I bought Goodyear Wrangler/Kevlar LR “E”. No alignment problems. Michelin “supervisor” of customers relations said this happens in all sunny states and said it was “normal”. Never again Michelin and thanks for nothing!
    Good years still fine after almost 4 years and about 50 k miles

  7. I have always ran 33×12.5 BFG A/T on my 94 k2500 Silverado since she was new. I do mostly highway miles now and installed the Firestone destination A/T in the same size. First thing I noticed was the soft sidewalls. It took a little getting use to the “Float” and decreased steering response not to mention they pick up every rock, stone, pebble, sand on the road, its actually quite bad. However the ride is better. I have 33k mi on them now and they are wearing quite well, about 1/2 tread. Occasionally I do venture off road and quickly found the performance of these tires end as soon as the blacktop ends. Places I had no trouble going with the BFGs is impossible with the destinations. They just load up and your done. I will be going back to BFGs A/Ts possibly sooner than later……..

  8. I love the Yokohama G015’s!! I live in the PNW and had them on an 02 Dodge Ram 4×4 with 20 x10 wheels. They grip better than any other tire on snow that I’ve used. Season pass holder/powder hound. No weight in back of pickup and they just give tons of confidence! On wife’s 04 Lexus470. She drive 11 hours in a snow storm and loves the tires!! Cars in the ditches, jack knifed trucks, ( goes up steep grades – we passed a new Ram 3 times that could get up the same hill … likely didn’t have good tires) and never had an issue. Installed on my 96 Lexus450 and the look great handle wonderful and wear great. I don’t want to do the on and off of studded tires and want to just go go go and I would HIGHLY RECOMMENDED the Yokohama G015’s – quite, smooth riding, great tread life, excel in all snow conditions for me on my vehicles, no issues in the rain, and 50K tread life warranty. Easy money every time I by them!!

    1. Hey Dan, have you tried the K02s km the snow compared to the G2015s? Tire rack rated the K02s betters in snow but the G2015s is better in wet roads.

  9. I have KO2’s on my 2014 GMC and it is time to get some new ones after 65,000 miles. I was thinking of trying the Nitto Ridge Grapplers. Any thoughts????

    1. Nitto Ridge Grapplers on my 2018 Raptor. They’re completely useless on snowy, icy, and wet pavement conditions. They’re only good on dry pavement. I don’t take my truck off-road so I can’t speak to how they perform under off-road conditions, but I assume they would do well since that’s what this truck was designed for.

  10. Consumer Reports rated the Hankook Dynapro ATM as the top tire in 2016. I was looking for Hankook on this list. What happened? It was rated with the same points, 66, as the Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain Adventure w/ Kevlar and the Michelin LTX A/T2.

    1. I also ran the Dynapro ATMs on my 03 Montero Sport, they worked like a champ in all conditions. Sold the truck and they had plenty of tread left. No road noise, aggressive look and great compound for off road.

  11. Kenda klever rt might be the best tyre ever made. Look into these before you purchase anything else. 2014 tundra trd 275 70 18

  12. Toyo Open Country ATII’s are horrible tires! Have ran them for years on multiple vehicles. They changed the tread compound to provide longer tread life and they are slick as snot in the rain. I run BFG KO2’s on my F250 and Cooper Discoverer AT3 4s on the Jeep Grand Cherokee (BFG’s only come on Load E which i don’t need for the Jeep). These are now my go to tires for my AT needs.

    1. Hi Kevin
      We feel that feedback from our audience is invaluable, after all our readers are end consumers and have firsthand knowledge running particular tire designs over thousands of miles and many years. Again thank you for your input and we hope both those tires run capably on your vehicles.

    1. I’ve run Nitto TG G2s on both my 2010 tundra and 2010 sequoia. They have been wearing great (about 55K on both sets, P-Rated 305/55r20 on the sequoia and LT-rated 305/55LT20 on the tundra), the sound on the highway is minimal (i’ve held 80+MPH for long trips on both), they balance well, and dry traction is great. The problems i have with both sets are 1) they are slick as all hell when the roads are wet but not pouring rain (maybe all tires are, i dunno) and 2) they dry-rotted at about year 2 (the sequoia went 4 yrs with them, the tundra 5 yrs). they skidded when i was stopped and making a right turn onto a main road in the sequoia. if i weren’t running in full-time AWD at the time, i feel i would’ve been in a potentially bad situation, since there were cars coming up fast behind me on the main road. thankfully, i was going slow and the surprise ended up not being a big deal. Now, i’m running KO2s on the tundra and will likely look again to BFG (or Cooper) for the sequoia.

      1. Hello Ryan, that is great. Thank you for giving us such an extensive feedback of your experience. We hope the KO2s and the BFG don’t disappoint you. Goodluck!

    1. I had a set of those on my truck. After sitting a week they would be flat spotted. Hit a pothole last night and it had ripped a huge chunk out of the tread down to the wire. Tires only had 9k on them and decided to get a different tire all together

    2. Looking for thoughts/recommendations for an aggressive looking tire but quiet and smooth on the street. 265/60r20 for a 2021 Chevy Tahoe Z71?

  13. How is it that “Toyo” the best tire 10 years running isn’t on this list? This is a joke! This site is more interested in getting sponsor checks than actually doing the work required to actually provide the readers with actual facts. Between myself and many of my friends we have run through all of the above mentioned tires and quite a few others. This is not a sales pitch for Toyo tires but a testament to the longevity, traction, strength, durability, and reliability! I know, the first thing you say is that they are expensive (As did I)! But hold on, they are only a little more than the other guys and some close to the same price. Consider this, a set of Toyo Open Country ATII’s 35 x 12.5 x 17 will last you 65,000 miles plus on the highway! Imagine if you only use it on local roads and trails! Seriously, no other tire compares. I’m not “Just Saying” I stating the facts.

    1. I ran Toyo ATII’s on my Tundra & Suburban, I hated them got poor traction on and off road, especially in the rain. Poor mileage and noisy. Switched to Michelin LTX AT2 on the tundra and Michelin Defender LTX M/S on the burb.

      Haven’t looked back

      1. the michelins are great tires, especially for the street. off road, meh. i had them on both my vehicles. nice long wear, though.

    1. I had a set of BStone Dueler AT REVO’s on my ’97 Dakota 4×4 and they stuck to anything. Great up here in the PNW rain, snow, & ice. The downside was the mileage I got out of them. They just didn’t last as long as I had hoped. I switched to the FStone Destinations, and was very disappointed by the performance difference in the rain and snow. The Destinations did not build confidence in taking the old Dak to as many places no matter the weather. However, the Destinations have definitely outlasted the REVO’s. I would HIGHLY recommend the REVO’s if you have the money to burn through them.

      I’m looking at the Falken Wildpeak’s now for my ’07 RAM 1500 4×4. I tried a set of Falken’s on my Jag X-Type AWD, and they are extremely good tires in ANY weather condition. Hoping that correlates into the AT tires also. My two-cents worth of review for ya.

    2. I was quite surprised by their absence on this list. I feel they are superior to several of the tires on this list. I have owned 3 sets of the A/T Revos and really liked them. Of course, you should know that I value performance over longevity. It doesn’t matter how long they last if they don’t do the job. I will be quite satisfied with 40K miles. My current SUV came with the Dueler A/T RH S tires and so far, they have performed very well. I will admit that the Bridgestones don’t quite have the load rating some others do. But they’ll do fine for the type of service the vast majority of owners will need from them. I’d put both up against all the tires on this list.
