    I'm not familiar with those tires but I will say in my experiance over the years Michelin tires have been great. They usually cost a bit more but perform well and outlast any comparable tire that I've seen. The Michelins on my last truck still had good tread after over 100,000 miles. (your milage may vary)

    I"ve got em! I like them. They have a little something to bite off road and are pretty quiet on road and they have good treadwear...only thing i have against them is they do seem a tad mushier cornering than the stock dunflops.

    I replaced the stock tires on my '99 with the LTX M/S and loved them.

    When the time comes on this truck it will be the LTX A/T2. Same reasons as above just a slightly more aggressive pattern for off road and snow. Still be a quiet 60,000 mile road tire.

    Go to "Tirerack.com" and do some comparing. They weren't under 8.2 on any catagory and are 10# lighter and cost less $ than several others and #4 on the list overall as I recall.

    My Moms Sequioa has LTX M/S on it (265/75). She just replaced the first set (tires for life) with 70K miles and still having plenty of tread left. They are good tires. They seem to handle some mud and sand pretty well and are great on the street. My Parents swear by Michelin tires.

    I just put some on my '09 Taco. I had BFG AT's and Dueler AT Revo's on my 4Runner before, and the road noise was too much with both. Got great mileage on the Revo's (56k miles), but they were pretty scary to drive on last winter. I probably should have replaced them sooner. The AT2's are great so far. Smooth and quiet. I just hope that they do ok in the snow.
