No experience with the Michelins, but do have the goodyear adventure/Kevlar on my sierra 2500, and absolutely love them! When the forteras need replacement I'm going with them.

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

My co-worker went with the Michelin LTX tires a couple years ago when his wife side-swiped a pillar in the MOA parking ramp with his F150 King Ranch (cut the sidewall of two tires, besides the minor body damage). He has been very impressed with their performance in dry, wet, and snow conditions.

I recently replaced the OEM 265/60R18 Michelins on my GC with the Goodyear Wrangler Adventure w/Kevlar tires.

Both tires are rated pretty high on TireRack (though the Goodyears score better in snow).

I went with the Goodyears because I wanted the look of the A/T tire versus the 'soccer mom' look of the Michelins.

Driving around during a minor snow storm last night I was very impressed with the traction of the Goodyears.

So my advice...
Go with whichever one you like the looks of the best. Either way you will be pleased with the performance.

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

Leaning towards Goodyear wrangler all terrain adventure w/Kevlar and like that look and knowing that they scored slightly higher when weather gets bad. You have that extra traction

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

Went with the Michelin myself. I prefer the look of a nice A/T tire, but you can't beat the smooth, quiet ride of the MS2. Had some good rain last night and this morning, wouldn't know it by my commute, same handling and traction as a sunny day.

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

I aswell will say I really like the M/S2 tires. Snow is already on the ground any they work great.

For those looking for a little more aggressive look - I've been really happy with the Mich. AT/2's so far.

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

Depends... one is A/T, the other isn't.
I had LTX M/S 2's on 2011 WK2 and liked them. They are quiet, smooth, expensive, very long tread life and not very good on hard packed snow or ice.

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

That's almost like comparing apples to oranges. They are 2 very different tires. It depends on your needs and wants. 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.

YMMV, but I noticed no change going from my Forteras to the AT Adventures, besides a better ride and handling. No noticeable change in MPG.
