Michelin LTX M/S2 on-road highway tires offer an exceptional combination of performances for light trucks and SUVs. The new 3-D Active Sipes and optimized contact patch of MaxTouch construction combine to deliver 32,000 more kilometers than the competition. New silica tread compounds and better lateral water evacuation to help you stop 2.2 meters shorter than the competitor's tire. Plus, with 8% more biting edges this tire delivers better snow traction than the legendary LTX M/S tire. The extra steel belt in all LT sizes provides incredible durability and strength to handle loads.

  • All terrain tread design.
  • Circumferencial grooves and deep shoulder slots work together to provide extra traction in wet conditions.
  • Polyester & steel construction and the advanced high speed modulus tread compound help prevent damage and promote long wear.

Side walls are weak and make vehicle handling very sluggish pulling a trailer. I noticed this "sluggish" feel as soon as I drove off once I had the tires put on. I hooked up to a camper and it swayed like never before. I was using Michelin before and should have spent the extra 50 Bucks for each tire and stayed with Michelin.

Original tires on my 2017 Ram 3500. Tow a 40' 5th wheel, about 15,000 miles. Have 37,500 miles on the tires now and think I can get another 10 or 15,000 miles out of them. Will replace with same when time comes. Bill

Do not buy these tires. You will only get about 20,000 miles out of them. They is no warranty. They will not stand behind them. Bought this truck new only has 19,000 miles, all highway miles. They are bologna skins now. Thansforce HT are a rip off.

I have a 34 foot travel trailer and the tires were completely worn out at 21,800. Tires were rotated every 8000 miles. Replaced Firestone with Michelin AT2. Tire store recommended Michelin as a good tire for towing .
