Michelin Ltx M S2 Review

Founded in 1889, Michelin has become one of the largest tire manufacturers in the world. It has been well-known for the quality tires, especially for all-season tires, which are often used for trucks, SUVs, etc., for years.

If you are finding a tire that suits your vehicles, you could consider Michelin LTX M/S2 as an ideal option. It goes really well with light trucks, SUVs, and crossovers.

The Michelin LTX M/S2 has evolved from the original one M/S1. The strength of Michelin LTX M/S2 over M/S1 is weather capacity. It could run pretty well in any circumstance, even in light snow. When the road is wet or covered with slush, the four wide circumferential grooves, multiple lateral grooves, and shoulder slots help evacuate the water easily to enhance the performance of wet traction and grip.

In addition, Max-touch technology allows the treads to contact more with the surface area, by which they could distribute the acceleration force, braking, and give pleasure to drivers. Thanks to this feature, this tire would please their customers by reducing the noise level and providing a smooth experience.

Also, two steel belts within the internal part of the tread provide the durability and strength to handle the heavy loads.

Though we could not say that the price is cheap, it is worth paying a little more money to afford the safety and comfort when riding. It could help you go through the light snow easily; however, you should be careful under harsh winter weather like heavy snow or ice as it is not designed to provide you with good traction in icy conditions. 

As the steering response is excellent, we could drive confidently and speedily even when cornering and changing lanes. It stops shorter than other tire types thanks to water evacuation, so its brake is superb.

The noise is not even noticeable while driving as it is smooth and comfy.

Also, we were surprised with its lifespan, which could last for thousands of miles. Its warranty is longer than other brands as well, up to 70,000 miles, while the average warranty of others is 20,000 miles only.

Conclusion

This tire impresses us for the whole experience it offers. A set of Michelin is worth your money and a good choice which could meet all your demands. We hope that all the highlights we have gone through in this Michelin LTX M/S2 Review might help you in choosing a proper tire.

    This is amazing, it’s the best truck I have ever driven. Yes. I changed to Michelin tires after the truck had accumulated 5 miles since the day it was purchased. If they didn’t put Michelin tires on the truck, I wouldn’t take it off the dealer’s lot. They did the work, even though I paid. Since 1997, I have used Michelin tires on all my trucks with excellent results. Safety is worth the price.

    These were my go-to items for the trip from NY to Florida. The ride was easy and quiet. We went through rainstorms but had no issues. They look like new and were able to cover 2700 miles. These tires are a great choice for everyone.

    These tires are great. Although I have used Michelin tires on cars before, this is the first time I have tried them on an SUV. The tires have made my ride more comfortable and are quieter than I’ve ever experienced on a truck. This winter, we had one large snowfall and several smaller storms. They performed admirably. Their performance in rain is amazing. They have 9,000 miles on them and still look like new. I would not put another tire on my truck.

    These tires are highly recommended. Although I haven’t driven these tires in winter conditions, I can tell you that they perform better than my Dunlop at20 Grandtrek factory tires. These tires are high quality and live up to their reputation. These tires are premium and I will be buying them again when the opportunity presents itself.

    These tires are great. These tires are quite expensive but I don’t think you should be worried about saving money. You get what you pay for, regardless of how much you save. They are a great choice and I would recommend them to everyone! It glides across the roads now…great ride! You can really feel the difference.

    Although they are more expensive than other tires, they are the most important part for your vehicle. So WHY would anyone take a chance on something that could potentially cost them their lives, or the lives of others? They last a long time, with an average of 80,000 miles per set. Just make sure to rotate them every 5,000 miles. These tires are a great choice.

    They were not good in snow and rain. They were Bridgestone, I believe. They were then switched to Good Year Triple Thread. They worked well in snow and ice but didn’t last as long as I expected. Hankook was purchased and they were good (better than factory but not as good as triple-thread). The Michelin tires are nearly as good as the triple thread. Although it is too early to know how long they will last I recommend them for all-year traction in Northeast.
