if you don't want to pay out of your ass for Michelins the Firestone ATS are just as good IMHO for half the price

One thing I wanted to add on these LTX AT2 all terrains which is one step up over the MS2s, is that they are surprisingly very good in the dry sand and mud. I do about 90% on road highway, and 10% off road on tough lake bed limestone and granite rocks and dry sand bars. They have ridden over some very sharp and harsh stuff and they have held up great. Not too mention they have gotten me out of some sticky situations. With these tires my MPGs has been the same when compared to my stock tires because they are nearly identical in weight. MPG was my number one priority, number two was to have some kind of all terrain capability and these have been the perfect fit for me.

These are the tires I have and they are amazing, best tire I've ever run. I'm about to do a full review once I tack on another 5k miles or so.
