Michelin’s LTX M/S2 is a highway all season light truck tire. The LTX M/S2 was created to combine long tread life with all season capabilities for vans, pickups and sport utility vehicles, as well as for commercial vans, shuttles and chassis cab vehicles using light truck tire sizes. The LTX M/S2 was created to combine a smooth, quiet ride with year-round traction in dry, wet and wintry conditions, also in light snow. Compared to the original LTX M/S, Michelin’s LTX M/S2 is an evolution in looks, design and increase in performance.
The LTX M/S2 molds long wearing, silica, all season compound into a tread profile featuring Michelin’s MaxTouch Construction to create a contact patch that promotes reliable traction and long wear by evenly distributing acceleration, braking and cornering forces. The LTX M/S2 features a symmetric tread design of stable independent tread blocks and high-density 3-D Active Sipes that deliver all season traction on dry roads and in inclement weather. The LTX M/S2 also has four wide circumferential channels, multiple lateral grooves and open shoulder slots promote lateral water evacuation to increase wet traction and stopping performance.
Internally the Michelin’s LTX M/S2 tire structure includes twin steel belts, three steel belts in Load Range D and Load Range E sizes, to give the strength and durability needed to handle heavy loads.
