Re: Michelin LTX MS 2 for Winter

Two winters now with dedicated snow tires, I am still amazed at what it will go through and how it handles it. Quite possibly the best 4x4 "anything" that i have ever driven, a lot of fun too! ...

Re: Michelin LTX MS 2 for Winter

I have the LTX M/S 2 tires and they are much better than the Forteras in ALL conditions. You still have to take it easy when icy, but overall very good in winter.

That said, my last car was a...

Re: New Cooper Tire

Greetings,

Cooper responded to the complaints about the AT/3 very quickly. One of the key things they did was to get the mountain flake symbol on the tire for winter conditions. Another...

Re: Painting WK2 calipers

I like the caliper covers I got for my 2014 overland. HEMI is inscribed on them in silver and they are black. I initially thought about painting the calipers for a split second but changed my mind...

Re: Optimum TIre Pressue 265/ 60 /18 LTX MS2

Been running the LTX/MS and MS2 for a couple decades at 37-38.
I personally prefer 37-38 cold, but someone here noted they preferred 38 front and 36 rear... and I'll agree with them after trying...

Re: Power Steering Failure

I'd check the fuses first but if the electrohydromechanical pump did fail then it would be good to have a new one under warrenty.

Re: Michelin LTX MS 2 for Winter

I just finished mt first winter with the LTX/MS2 tires and was very pleased with them. They handled the snow better than any of the AT tires I have had over the years. I found them to grip better...

Re: Michelin LTX MS 2 for Winter

I run the LTX MS/2s at a little higher pressure than the 33psi recommended. After experimenting for quite a while I settled on around 35-36 psi cold. I think they handle better, and are a little...

Re: Michelin LTX MS 2 for Winter

I had them on my MY11 WK2. Great tires. Good on highway. Good in snow. Good for mild off-roading. Not good on hard packed snow or ice.
So far Nokian WR G3 SUV are checking all the boxes for me....

Re: Michelin LTX MS 2 for Winter

I've used them, which included trips across Donner pass, Echo Summit, Carson pass over the Sierras. They are quite surprisingly good, plus much quieter than some aggressive treads. They are also...

Re: 18" to 20 " conversion ride quality

Re: 18" to 20 " conversion ride quality

Re: 18" to 20 " conversion ride quality

Yes, there are folks who have made that swap...but it's not "common". That said, you're more likely to get a response in this forum since forums attract folks who make changes.

Re: Michelin LTX MS2 or LTX AT2

One is A/T, the other isn't. LTX M/S 2 is quiet, high mileage and very good in snow, not too good on ice.

Re: Michelin LTX MS2 or LTX AT2

I agree. I can also vouch for their performance in the snow. Great all around tire.

Re: Best snow driving techniques and modes

It would be odd if ECO mode bogged anything down in deep snow, as with load on the engine, it should not be in 4 banger mode anyway. Just use snow mode, it also turns off ECO if it becomes too...

Re: Best snow driving techniques and modes

The lower torque helps keep the wheels from breaking free and start slipping when pulling out from a stand still. It feels different, but it is the way to go.

Re: Best snow driving techniques and modes

It's been unusually quiet around here lately.

I can't comment on the what works or doesn't but I would imagine that raising it up to create more clearance would be the best bet.

But at the end...

Re: 18" rims to 20" swap

While I agree that the 20 will give you better handling, the 18 will give you a better ride. With the 20's, small bumps seem exaggerated, and you will feel even a crack in the roadway. With the 18's,...

Re: 18" rims to 20" swap

I didn't make the switch on the GC but I can tell you from experience that the 20" wheels will result in better handling. A lower profile sidewall yields less under lateral stress compared to a tall...
