Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my tires I just replaced my LTX A/T2 tires on my 2013 Ram Hemi..They had 56,000 miles all highway and distance driving with several months of our NY North Country winter driving too.. Always Michelins A/T for my trucks and I love them. The set I replaced still had plenty of tread, but because of the winter months coming and driving at times throught the Mountains I just wanted to have new tires. I think the reason my old tires are till good is the care I gave them--rotating on schedules and not off roading except a few dirt roads and watching my driving...They have never failed me pulling my horse trailer or in the winter snows or even on ice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely Great Wear and Good Ride We have been very happy with these tires on our Ford F-150 King Ranch. They ride very nice and provide great traction in the snow and ice. We were able to get over 62,000 miles over a 5 year period on our last set and just replaced them with a new set for this winter. We used them off rode 20% of the time, 80% on the highway. Even though we lived in AZ for over 4 years, they survived the extreme heat. We were prompt on getting them rotated every 5000 miles and kept the alignment good on the truck. Highly recommend these tires over other competitor's which did not last over 30,000 miles on 3 different vehicles with similar mileage warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Words to Describe my Displeasure with these tires I have a farm and need a truck to get up into my fields and tow equipment. When I bought this truck it came with these tires which are labeled all terrain. My roads are hard packed dirt/stone. If I get just a little rain it's like being on a skating rink and usually have to put it in 4wd. Forget it if there's snow, I'm in 4wd all the time even on plowed roads. I can't even get up a 8% grade with an inch of snow unless I'm in 4wd or a running start . And that's a blacktop driveway. The tread doesn't clean out and the tires just spin. I never had Michelin's on my other trucks and I never had this trouble before. Great on dry pavement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safe, reliable, and long lasting I replaced the previous set of LTX A/T 2 tires on my 2002 GMC Denali XL with another set of LTX A/T 2 tires after 71,000 miles and seven and one half years of service. The previous set were great tires that exceeded my expectations, were used in all seasons and all weather conditions without a single issue, and still had safe tread depth up to the time of replacement. I drove mostly highway, but often used unpaved roads, and occasionally off road. I choose to replace the previous set due to age rather than any other issue. I can recommend the Michelin LTX A/T 2 for any SUV or light truck that this tire is designed for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tires, well worth the price. I just purchased a set of Michelin LTX A/T2 tires. The previous set of Michelins were discontinued (sorry, I forget the model name) and replaced with the LTX A/T2. Aside from a small tread pattern change, I am VERY pleased with the performance. My last set of Michelins lasted over (4) years and around 75,000. Low road noise for a tire with such grip in both off-road and winter conditions. The initial investment may be higher than other brands, but the wear life makes the long term investment well worth it. I expect that this new set will provide years of TOP Level performance and wear. Michelin quality has made a loyal customer out of me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tire investment I have ever made! Michelin LTX A/T2, 285-75R16, load range E, mounted on my 2002 Ford F250SD, 7.3 diesel, auto, 4WD, SRW. I installed these tires in 2011, with 172,000 miles on the vehicle. Right front wheel bearing and right side ball joints had been replaced at about 150,000 miles. At 252,000 miles, the fronts were showing strange wear patterns related to worn parts, so I moved rears to front, and installed new on the rear. Now, with 272,000+ miles, it is probably time to replace the old pair, which now have over 100,000 miles on them. I've never had a flat. Loaded to 14,000 GVW, with 5th wheel trailer, 32,000 GCW. Don't know what more you could expect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock Solid I own a 2007 Toyota FJ cruiser. I did a lot of research prior to buying the LTX to replace the OEM tires which never exactly gave me confidence one off-roading. Like the vast majority of four-wheel-drive vehicle owners over 95% of my miles were put on driving paved roads. However when I do off-road Ing it is usually in rocky and mountainous country. I was looking for a tire that would give me a somewhat comfortable ride with a low noise level and yet perform off-road. This tire certainly did the trick for me. I have put close to 70,000 miles on them. I rotate and balance about every 8k and still have approx 15k useful miles left on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Choice Have put a few hundred miles on this tire, which replaced a superb tire by a Michelin competitor, which was an LT tire C range. This Michelin tire has made our Yukon XL ride much more comfortably. I chose this tire because I was seeking a tire that would allow me NOT to use snow tires in the winter. While I will have to wait to see if that is successful--and I fully expect it will be, the LTX A/T2 has excellent traction and has greatly improved the ride of the vehicle. Also, they are very quiet at highway speeds. Finally, the tire was very competitively priced. Initial reaction is that this tire was a superb choice for our requirements.

Speed Rating:

The speed rating is a measure of what speed the tire can safely maintain for sustained periods of time. A higher speed rating will generally indicate that you will have better control and handling characteristics. Speed rating standards are established by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). Manufacturers assign speed ratings to tires after extensive performance testing. On the sidewall of every tire, you’ll find one of these speed rating codes:

M – Up to 81 mph
N – Up to 87 mph
P – Up to 93 mph
Q – Up to 99 mph
R – Up to 106 mph
S – Up to 112 mph
T – Up to 118 mph
H – Up to 130 mph
V – Up to 149 mph
W – Up to 168 mph
Y – Up to 186 mph
Z – (See Below)

What does ‘Up to 99 mph’ really mean?
Tires with a Q speed rating can safely sustain speeds of up to 99 miles per hour. The tire may be able to reach higher speeds, but traveling at speeds higher than 99 mph for any length of time would be unsafe - the tire is not designed to handle it.

What is a Z Rating?
For tires having a maximum speed capability above 149 mph, a Z rating may appear in the size designation ...above 186 mph, a Z rating must appear in the size designation, including a Y speed symbol in brackets.

A Few Tips About Speed Ratings…
Never mix tires with different speed ratings, as this may cause serious handling problems.

We don’t recommend downgrading the speed rating of your tires, as the vehicle manufacturer has done extensive testing to determine which tires match the various driving characteristics of the vehicle. However, if you are looking for better handling, there is generally no problem in moving up to a higher speed-rated tire.

Most importantly: Put safety first. The speeds shown are test speeds; they are not recommended speeds.

Temperature Rating:

A comparative grade based on the tire’s resistance to heat and its ability to dissipate heat, again as measured under controlled conditions. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated A – B – C. An A-rated tire is the coolest running, while a C-rating meets the minimum federal performance standards. These temperature grades are set based on a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.

Traction Grade:

A comparative grade based on the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement, again as measured under controlled conditions on wet asphalt and concrete surfaces. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated AA – A – B – C. A tire that is graded AA should have better traction or stopping performance than a tire with a lower grade, based on the specific straight-ahead braking tests.

Treadwear Grade:

A comparative grade based on the actual wear of the tire’s tread when tested under specific controlled conditions. All tires are tested under the same conditions to allow for comparison between manufacturers and between different lines of tires from the same manufacturer. The system is fairly easy to understand. A tire with a treadwear grade of 400 should have a useful tread life approximately twice as long as a tire with a treadwear grade of 200. The higher the grade, the better the expected treadwear.

Looking for new tires with optimal traction? Or are long-lasting treads a bigger priority? There’s a simple way to compare tire specs!

The Uniform Tire Quality Grading (UTQG) system was developed by the Department of Transportation (DOT) to assist consumers in the purchase of their tires by providing a standard grading system used by all tire manufacturers. Tire manufacturers use the UTQG system to grade their tires in three important areas: treadwear, traction and temperature. The UTQG grade for each tire is shown on the paper label affixed to the tire and is also molded in the sidewall.

Treadwear Grade – A comparative grade based on the actual wear of the tire’s tread when tested under specific controlled conditions. All tires are tested under the same conditions to allow for comparison between manufacturers and between different lines of tires from the same manufacturer. The system is fairly easy to understand. A tire with a treadwear grade of 400 should have a useful tread life approximately twice as long as a tire with a treadwear grade of 200. The higher the grade, the better the expected treadwear.

Traction Grade – A comparative grade based on the tire’s ability to stop on wet pavement, again as measured under controlled conditions on wet asphalt and concrete surfaces. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated AA ABC. A tire that is graded AA should have better traction or stopping performance than a tire with a lower grade, based on the specific straight-ahead braking tests.

Temperature Grade – A comparative grade based on the tire’s resistance to heat and its ability to dissipate heat, again as measured under controlled conditions. The grades, from highest to lowest, are designated ABC. An A-rated tire is the coolest running, while a C-rating meets the minimum federal performance standards. These temperature grades are set based on a tire that is properly inflated and not overloaded.

UTQG is a great way to compare tires from various manufacturers and between specific lines from the same manufacturer. Remember: The UTQG isn’t a safety rating and it doesn’t guarantee a tire’s mileage performance - but you can use the UTQG in conjunction with price, warranty, appearance and recommendations to make the right tire choice for your needs. If you have any questions about UTQG or various tire lines, the Big O Tires team is always ready to help!

Hauling groceries – or bricks? The Load Rating or Load Index indicates how much weight each tire can safely support.

Every tire’s load rating is stamped into its sidewall. Once you know the load rating, you can use the chart below to determine the amount of weight that one tire can support. Then just multiply the weight by four - or the number of wheels on your vehicle - to determine your vehicle’s maximum load-carrying capacity.

Load Rating Table

Sometimes the maximum load (for example, 1060 kg) will be stamped into the sidewall so that you don't have to decipher the load rating. Remember: never install tires with a lower load-carrying capacity than the tires that were installed on your vehicle by the manufacturer!

Load Range:

The load rating is a measure of the tire's strength — its ability to hold air pressure under load.

The load rating influences the sidewall strength of a vehicle tire. If a tire has a load rating that is too low, the handling of the vehicle could become unstable as the sidewall buckles under the vehicle's weight. Conversely, a much higher load rating than needed can dramatically harshen ride quality.

The recommended load rating for a vehicle's tires can be found in its owner's manual. It is also normally affixed to a sticker located on one of the vehicle's door jams. If you are replacing tires supplied with the vehicle from the manufacturer, the load rating written on the tires is an appropriate guide.

Sidewall:

There are other codes on some tires that provide you with additional information, some of which are specific to light truck tire applications. Some of the other codes that you might find on your tires include:

LT = Stands for light truck application. Example: LT235/85R16
C, D or E = Load range indication for light truck applications
REIN = Reinforced
OWL = Outlined White Letters
RWL = Raised White Letters
ORWL = Outlined Raised White Letters
B, BLK, BW, BSW = Blackwall or Black Sidewall
W, WW, WSE – Whitewall or White Sidewall
XNW = Extra Narrow White Width
XL = Extra Load Capacity

Section Width:

The linear distance between the outside sidewalls of an inflated tire without any load (exclusive of protruding side ribs and decorations).

Sidewall Aspect Ratio:

The ratio between tire height and width.

Important note on quoted prices:

Prices quoted do not include additional charges for sales taxes, mounting and balancing, valve stems, tire disposal fees, state recycling fees, tire protection plans and other charges. Prices may vary from one store to another or from one date to another. Tires listed may not be in stock at the identified store.

How Are Tire Sizes Specified?
The first number describes width of the tire (section), the second number describes the aspect ratio (profile), and the third number the wheel diameter (rim size).
Alignment makes a big difference in how long tires last, how much gas you use, and steering and safety. When you buy new tires, we'll make sure they're properly aligned with a free alignment check!

What is TPMS?


TPMS is an electronic system that monitors the air pressure in your tires and alerts you when they are under- or over-inflated. Proper tire inflation not only boosts your safety, but also the life of the tire and its fuel economy.

TPMS

Some components of the TPMS sensor may need to be replaced due to wear and corrosion over time. Our TPMS rebuild kit includes all the necessary parts to service your TPMS sensor and keep this important safety feature functioning properly.
