Re: Michelin LTX M/S2

I have this tire on my 2007 Liberty, made a big difference when I swapped from the factory rubber. Quiet, smooth ride, decent in snow and off-road. I like it and would buy it again!

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2

I have the LTX M/S 2's on my Laredo, I really like them. They are slightly louder then the Latitudes that came with it but the tracktion and handling is much improved. I had them out after the Chicago snow storm and the traction was great, also they were great in heavy rain, wet braking traction is much better.

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2

It's a great upgrade from the Latitude, I swapped mine out as soon as I took delivery. Along with much better traction in the snow, it makes the GC look so much better, I hate the smooth sidewall look of the latitude, it would be worth upgrading even if only for cosmetic reasons. The LTX M/S2 just looks like it belongs on the WK2. I can't notice any noise difference even at 85MPH.

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2

I've been a Michelin fan for many years and have never had any problems with them. I'm also considering replacing the Latitudes with the Michelin LTX M/S2's. I think they may be the best all-around answer, perhaps even better for most purposes than the LTX A/T2 all-terrain tires. Utility is more important to me here than projecting an aggressive "off-road" appearance.

In researching them, I've noticed that a few people have commented favorably about using them off-road, although I presume they were not talking about rock crawling or any extreme usage. My 2-3% of "off-road" driving consists mainly of using Forest Service access roads to reach hiking and backpacking trails around the mountain West. Nothing truly "off-road," although some can be pretty steep, rough and occasionally muddy "washboards."

Does anyone who has used them in such conditions have any concerns about their long-term durability or suitability on such roads, especially with infrequent use and mainly during summers and dry road conditions? Or would you favor the LTX A/T2 for all your driving needs?

Thanks for your input.

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2

I've been on some pretty rugged 4WD trails in the San Juan Mountains of SW Colorado with my '07 Jeep Liberty equipped with LTX M/S2s. They did a good job and I don't see any adverse wear. In fact, because of this, I'll probably swap out my Latitude Tours on my Jeep GC with the same tire. I think it will be a great compromise between a true highway tire like the Latitude Tour and a true all-terrain tire like the A/T2.

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2

Yep - I run them now on my 98 JGC (soon to be sold). I've had them off road too, although not in extreme stuff. They are an excellent choice for highway use with some off-road (not rock crawling.)

I seriously considered them as the replacement for the Latitudes on my new Summit as they are quieter than the LTX AT/2s, but in the end I wanted the extra "rugged" look of the AT/2s and the option to do the more challenging off-road stuff.

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2

I went thru 3 sets of LTX on an 94 GC V8.... Love the tire and put on ~60k on each set.

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2

The LTX M/S2 will be the victor in comfort/longevity compared to the Latitude and the AT/2.
Always been a fan of the LTX MS. Had several sets of them take me well over 100k on previous Jeeps I've had.

For those of you that will do a very small percentage of offroading, I personally would shy away from the AT2. To me, the sidewalls are overly enforced and it makes them ride like a 10ply tire. They have a nice tread pattern and maintain traction quite well, but they simply don't last long enough to justify the cost.

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2

I pulled the trigger and traded the Michelin Latitude Tours for LTX M/S 2's.

What product do you recommend for keeping the OWL clean and bright? My criteria: simple, fast and easy. Ideal product would be spray on, drive in rain, done! Thanks.
