    Not sure exactly how many miles I have on mine, but it rides much better on the street, and after at least 10k there is no noticeable wear.

    2 thumbs up so far!

    I have about 15K on mine just starting to see that the tires are being used. with this type of wear I am figuring about at least 60K form them

    The Michelins are great on wear - you should easily get 60k, but they are known to dry-rot after a few years, so it depends on how much driving you do. If you can get the 60k in before they start to crack then no problem. If the truck only gets used occasionally and the tires reach five years or so they will have to be replaced before you can reach the 60k :(.
    They are good tires though and grips good on wet roads etc. They are relatively low road noise also.

    My previous truck was a 98 V-6 access cab TRD. I ran Michelin LTX M/S 31X10.50-15s for 110,000 miles. They were still pretty good tread when I traded them to my barber for a free haircut. He ran them another year(10,000-15,000 miles).

    On my 2011 Standard cab I pulled the stock Dunlop tires off at 1300 miles. They made the truck seem like a drunken hog as they wallered and wandred down the road. Handling in corners was ridiculous. You did not know which end was going to break loose first. I replaced them with Michelin LTX M/S2 265X7016s. It was a whole new truck then.

    If you monitor the tire pressure, alingment and do rotations, I see no reason you should not get 70,000 plus miles from your M/S2. Do not be surprised with 100,000 miles.
