Michelin LTX A/T 2 Reviews?

Hey guys, I am seriously considering buying six Michelin LTX A/T 2's for my '02 F350 Dually 4x4. They come with a 60K mile warranty, Load range E and good reviews from what I have read.

Do any of you have personal experience with these? Towing? Mileage? Traction?

Thanks!

I found some on ebay recently for a price I couldn't refuse and only have 500 miles on them now but I'll tell you the truck drives better than new.
I read all the reviews I could find before I bought them and it didn't seem to matter what kind of vehicle the tires were on, they rocked.

I have 56K on my DRW rear LTX A2 tires. Good even wear and never rotated. Looks like 6-8K left in them. I tow a 14K tag equipment trailer.

I have had problems with tire wear on the front. This is not a tire issue though. It is a front end issues that Ford is working to resolve.

I'll go with the LTX A2 again.

Something Wrong With My Picture

I am driving my '06 with 17" alum wheels and the OEM BFG's lasted to 32K and I rotate every 5K mi when I change the oil. I bought the LTX A/T and they are just under 5/32 at 57K miles so I have a net of 25K miles on them. They drive great, they are quiet, and they are decent in traction, but for the life of me I can't seem to get good mileage out of a set of tires. No cupping, wearing evenly for the most part. Oh, and had the truck aligned when I bought them. I bought them at the stealership and they told me this week that Michelin won't warranty adjust them until they are at 3/32.

I have been searching for a replacement and I don't know what to do - not sold on the life span.

I have a set of OEM 20" wheels inbound and I am trying to decide what to buy. Been freaking out a little over the price of 20" tires......don't think I will spring for the Michelin's again based on the expense to wear ratio being higher than lesser tires.

FWIW.

Ntb has nitto crosstek. They look good and are load range E. I have talked to people that have them and they love it.

We ran a set on one of our 2500 chebbys...they have decent tread, great for highway and towing, just not the greatest off the paved path. If you're looking to be on paved roads a lot I'd say go for it, they are great tires!

I had a set of them in a 265/75 when I had my truck at stock height and they were a decent street tire.
Dont let the fancy tread pattern fool you. They dont belong off the pavement.
The small lugs make them prone to scalloping. I had this problem on the front and back tires. They also wore quicker than I expected, I had them on my truck for about 20k miles and they wore down considerably, but they made another 20k miles on my brothers 01 f250.

In all I'd recommend a set of Nitto Dura Grapplers. They are an awesome tire. The best highway tire for these big trucks. They last forever. And the tread pattern is just as good in the rain and off pavement as the AT2s.
No Michelin tire is a bad choice. They are a very reliable brand, but the Nitto Dura Grapplers and the Terra Grapplers on my 97 have me won over.

I went with the Michelin AT2's and have been happy with them so far. I have roughly 1,500 miles on them right now.

I will update this later when I have more miles on these tires.

Thanks for all the replies!
