Re: Michelin LTX M/S2

I was looking at the Silent Armor also but seemed to be a few more negative reports on GY in general. Given the snowflake designation it didn't seem to gain that much in snow/ice traction over the MS/2 and in fact was still rated below the Mich LTX AT/2. I'm going to compare prices at my Big O store vs. Tire Rack plus shipping on Tues. My local Costco had them listed but now I don't see them on their website for my 265/60 R18 size. Will check with them as well. I know the Silent Armors are an AT but think for my purposes of light off roading the MS/2 will be fine for that as well.

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2

The LTX M/S'2 have been great for my light off roading: dirt and rock roads, cut fields. I have not been in mud. The only time I ever got a flat while mild off roading was about 15 years ago on a slate trail (NY/VT border) when a piece of slate cut the sidewall of my tire, so I am sensitive to getting that type of flat. The Silent Armor may protect better than the P series LTX M/S'2 in that situation. Overall I am very pleased with the tire. I suspect the reason it does not have the snowflake symbol is because I think the rubber is a harder composition than is optimal for ice driving.

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2

I purchased a 2013 JGC Ltd. in Oct. of 2012. Now have 15,800 miles. I have had it in to the dealer several times for a vibration. The tires (Latitudes) were alligned and balanced twice, and is finally as smooth as glass at any highway speed (up to 90 mph). The thing is, thats a lot of time spent and dissapointment on a new vehicle. I have 8/32 tread remaining and it looks like the depth is not very much to me, but I guess we'll see how that runs out. I have already done much research on the Michlin LTX-MS2 and compaired to the Latitudes the reviews are much better. I love the grand cherokee Ltd. Never thought I would enjoy a vehicle so much.

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2

After 5000 mi on my 2012 Overland I switched from the Latitudes to the LTX MS/2 mainly because I was going into winter in CO and wanted a better tire for that. They were great in snow and hard pack. Now live in eastern KS and intended to change over to the Latitudes and wear them out in the summer but have not done so yet. Did not have problems with them but they are an entry tire IMO and not to standard of the LTX. I think LTX is best all around tire for the Jeep GJ.
