Question new tire advice - 2011 WK2x - Dest. LE2 v. LTX M/S2

Greetings - First Post.

I've worn out my OEM Michelin Lattitudes on the 2011 Grand Cherokee x-package (about 38k miles) and need to replace them before winter (265/60/18). The original tires handled fine on the road for me, except in slush and snow (pretty dissapointed). Could have lasted longer in my opinion too, but perhaps I missed a rotation or two. I don't do much off roading at all (just light trails and carraige roads).

I've pretty much narrowed it down to 2 choices - the Michelin LTX M/S2 (rated much better on CR) vs. Firestone Destination LE2 (rated slightly better on TRack, but with less milage behind the review). Any advice? The Michelin's are about 70$ more a tire and that's something to consider.

Thanks in advance.

Curious what you ruled out? If you haven't checked out the Cooper Discoverer's yet, you should-best all around tire I've owned..

Jerky- Are you talking about the Discoverer AT3's? Looks like maybe more tire than I need.

Those are the ones I have and they are great. I've also heard good things about the HT's but have no personal experience.

I live in WI and the AT3's are better on snow & ice than anything I've had. Ever. Also, in the summer they are really good in the rain.
