Comment:
I replaced a set of snow tires I was using year around with the LTX M/S 2's. Great year around performance with the new tire and worked almost as well as the snow tire in the winter. Won't be going back to a snow tire. The tire was louder then I expected. I would still buy again.

I had the factory Perrelli Scorpions on my Ford F-150 Platinum. At the end, about 80,000 miles, they got pretty rough. I don't go off road a lot so I got the Michelin's. Ride was much better, liked them anough I put a set on my wife's Jeep Grand Cherokee about 8 months later. Would highly reccomend if affordable.
