Dealer recommended them 72,000 miles ago.<br />I will definitely buy again. The Lexus GX470 was horrible in the snow and not the best handling. The Mich LTX M/s2 were a game changer. It amazes me that a premium car company does not have them on the vehicle out of the factory.

Wife & I drive 60,000 miles a year, in all kinds of weather, rural 2 lane and heavy traffic 4 lane and Pa. potholes. We go thru tires, and have never driven any, any better. Expensive up front, but cheapest in the long run. Plus, your life depends on those couple inches of rubber on the road. How much is you and your families safety worth?

I've I've used LTX tires on my SUV's for many years and usually replace oem tires before delivery. This time I didn't and went through eight of another manufacturers tires before switching to the LTX's (my size was not yet available).<br /><br />I off road as well as normal driving and think that these are a reliable choice
