Default Michelin LTX M/S 2

Purchased the Michelin LTX M/S 2 in 235/75/R15 last night through my local Discount Tire.

First impression of this set of tires is excellent, even though I've only put 10 miles on them. However, they far out-perform the incredibly old, weather checked, low/unevenly worn tread of the BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A. The ride is substantially quieter, although, new BFG versus new Michelin, I would be sacrificing off road grip and load capacity. But given I won't be taking the Dakota off road, let alone towing anything substantial with it, the Michelin tires will be more than necessary for the truck's needs in the future.

These tires will most likely be the last that I will purchase for the Dodge with its 70,000 mile treadwear. Whether or not the tires will last 70,000 miles, they will far outlast the pickup overall.

Price: $587.53 less $100 Presidents' Day rebate through Discount Tire. Total $487.53.

Discount tire is great, and you sure can't go wrong with Michelins, especially at that price. Enjoy the new tires.

So far so good. Haven't given them much of a chance driving to work either since I drive maybe a mile. This weekend will be a much better test of them, two hour road trip on curvy, icey roads.

I have had those and the LTX A/T's on some of my trucks and Jeeps,can't be beat.
Though I liked the original version better than the A/T2's... unforunately I think that they discontinued the A/T version. The Defender M/S is just out, have not tried them yet. I just had to put tires on my 96 4WD, and had to "settle" for Cooper AT3's cuz I couldn't come up with the extra cash for the Michelins.
As an old alignment guy, it was quite shocking, the difference that just bolting on a set of different tires would make on any given vehicle....and you could never beat a Michelin....

Michelin got great tires indeed. Should perform good and lasts, especially if you don't go off road.
