The AT/2 treadwear isn't as good as the MS/2, and on cold wet roads it doesn't have the traction of the MS/2. It is also notably noisier. It does do a tad better on wet desert muck or wet vegetation, but surprisingly the MS/2 worked better on wet rocks.

It is a very good tire, but it is not a great tire like the MS/2.

You might check out the Nokian Rotiiva A/T. It has the severe weather emblem.

If you want a quiet, long-lasting, fairly LRR tire, that does OK in snow, get the M/S2s. If you want a more aggressive look, a hair more noise, less MPG, go anywhere tire, pick the Wrangler. According to CR, the Wrangler has a very high rolling resistance, so your MPG will be impacted.
I have found this to be the most accurate and reasonable evaluation. After trying both I have to add that the increase in noise with the GY was a barely perceptible up or down pitch when accelerating or decelerating below 35mph or so. Highway noise measured with a meter in the cabin, same speed, same road surfaces,was within + or - 1 DB. MPG was the same so far. I found the GY to be a little stiffer in the sidewalls,a little harder riding than the MS2 but in my opinion it made for better response and tracking on the road and worth it.

Welcome to the forum. There are now A/T's that have the severe service mountain/snowflake symbol.

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2 or Goodyear Wrangler All terrain adventure

Take a look at the new Yokohama Geolandar at GO15's. Just put a set on my QD2 WK. snowflake rated H speed rating. They are super smooth and quiet. These replaced General Grabber at2's and it has better dry wet and snow traction and the Grabbers are no slouch of a tire.

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2 or Goodyear Wrangler All terrain adventure

I wanted a winter weather tire that would be appropriate for the sleek look of an Overland High Altitude. I tried a set of Toyo Celsius and couldn't be happier with the all around performance. Great Winter tire that can stay on all year and look more high performance than AT from the side, which was what I wanted.

Grabbers are awesome in snow and surprisingly well behaved on dry pavement as well.
