Bottom Line The only thing that may throw you off about this tire is its steep price tag. But in our opinion, this tire is worth every single penny.
Pros Sturdy tread compound that will last for years, excellent all-season traction even in the snow and offers a great deal of value despite being costly.
Cons Not the most budget-friendly all-season tire.
Tire sizes 20”, 19″, 18”, 17”, 16” and 15”
Price range Starts from approximately $125.
Warranty 70,000 miles/6-year warranty.

How does the LTX M/S manage to replace such a top-performer? Well, it builds on what the M/S2 has already achieved, combining its best traits with newer technology like Michelin’s own Evertread. Does the 2015 LTX M/S succeed in topping its predecessor? Let’s find out. 

Michelin LTX M/S (Our Review)

Overall Assessment

michelin ltx ms review

This isn’t going to be a very lengthy assessment because we all know how impressive Michelin tires are. From year-round traction to reliable braking and handling to responsive steering and ultra-comfortable ride experience, there’s nothing faulty about the LTX M/2.

The only thing that may throw you off about this tire is its steep price tag. But in our opinion, this tire is worth every single penny. SUV and truck driving doesn’t get any more enjoyable than with the LTX M/S.

The Michelin LTX M/S starts at around $125, which is quite impressive, but then again, this is a Michelin tire, and we all know their standard of quality. 

Be on the lookout for special offers such as discounts, rebates, and coupons to knock off a few bucks off the price. Keep in mind, though, that the prices could vary from one dealer to another. 

Check out other tire prices with the help of our reviews like the Review of Latitude Tour by Michelin, as well as our Review of Defender T+H Tire by Michelin.


The LTX M/S is backed by a superb 70,000-mile/6-year tread warranty on H and T-Speed sizes, whereas LT sizes are backed by a 50,000-mile/6-year warranty.
