Couple of questions 2 or 4wheel drive, on or off highway, snow or mud?

I can only speak from experience with the A/T tires. Had them on a Ford Exporer for 88,000 miles. I traded it before replacing the tires but still had good use left in them. Great for all knids of road and off road conditions. Made that Explorer ride like a Cadillac (and I have one of them too). I thought they very quite. I would think the M/S would be a good selection also but I liked the open tread design of the A/T.

We have LTX ATs on our F250, and they have been excellent.
Still a fairly agressive tread, and yet reasonably quiet.
But if you will be on nothing but pavement, the M/S might be a better choice, probably a bit quieter.

I had the A/T's on a full size 93 blazer years ago and used that rig to tow my construction trailer (7000lbs eeash) and had 95k on them Before getting new ones. Believe it or not, two of the tires were bought by the tire shop from me to re-sell! To say they held up well would be an under statement !

Hope your asking about the LT metric version load range E, not the P metric passenger tire. The LT tires are the way to go for towing that 5W.

Don't think you can go wrong with either choice.


Edit: If you have the factory 20's, you may opt to a set of factory 17" wheels and run Michelin LT265/70/17 'E'...that's what I had on my Ram when I towed with it.

I am sure either one would work for you. I did have the at2 on my Nissan titan and loved them. They were great in snow and ice and work great for the way I will ever off road. They don't look like much but they are more aggressive than they seem. I will say that when my tundra is ready for new tires I will be getting the ltx at2 again.

I went with the LTX AT2 on my Titan because it had a more aggressive tread than the BFGoodrich tires the dealer had on the truck when I bought it. The Michelin AT2s are load E & even running them with less air, they are still not as quiet & a little stiffer but have stuck to the road pretty good this winter.

I have a 4x4, but still chose the M/S. I like the smooth, quite, ride they provide. I have no intentions of going "muddin", I have the Polaris RZR S for that fun and excitement, the 4x4 is solely for peace of mind.

I have the AT's on my Super Duty as that is what it came with. Seem to be a decent tire so far I don't think they are very agressive and would be a good choice if you don't drive off road or in mud often. I'll see this spring how well they compare to my old Ram 2500's Dynapro AT/M's which were an awesome compromise tire. IMO I do not think they are any better than say a Hankook or Toyo or Nitto AT and those 3 are probably better off road than the Michelin's. I am guessing that you don't see much off road time so my comments are a mute point anyway but make no mistake the Michelins are very good tires and hey why not support your local tire manufacturer.
