The LTX A/T2 is Michelin's On-/Off-Road All-Terrain light truck tire developed to meet the needs of today's recreational and commercial pickup, van and SUV drivers. The LTX A/T2 was designed to provide even wear, low noise and good fuel efficiency, even in demanding commercial applications while delivering the year-round traction and durability expected from rugged off-road tires without forsaking the on-road comfort and handling expected of a Michelin tire.

The LTX A/T2 features an advanced light truck tread rubber compound molded into an independent tread block tread design featuring Michelin Biting Edges (notched blocks in the tread pattern) that enhance traction on dirt, mud, gravel, wet grass and snow. Michelin's Advanced MaxTouch Construction results in a unique tire footprint shape that allows for long-lasting, even treadwear while their Comfort Control Technology uses computer-optimized design and precision manufacturing to reduce vibrations and road noise to deliver a comfortable ride. The tire's internal structure includes two steel belts (Load Range D and Load Range E sizes add a third steel belt) to enhance durability and tread puncture resistance.

Bridgestone Dueler H/T D840 (Highway All-Season)

Image


Original Equipment (OE) All-Season tires are the prevalent tire choice for vehicles sold in the United States. Developed for use on new cars and light trucks, these tires provide a versatile blend of ride quality, noise comfort, treadwear, handling and year-round traction, even in light snow.

While Original Equipment All-Season tires are often repurchased as direct replacements for pairs and sets of worn out Original Equipment tires, they can also be used on other vehicles in axle pairs or sets of four if they match the needed tire size, load range and speed rating specifications, as well as the anticipated driving conditions.

While The Tire Rack attempts to provide a picture of as many of these tires as possible, the pictures used to represent these tires cannot be guaranteed to be an exact depiction of each tire's appearance because of the variety of subtle differences in tread designs and sidewall styling.

Image

The Dueler H/T's rounded casing profile delivers an extremely smooth ride and the S-speed rating adds to it's excellent highway handling and predictable performance. The Dueler H/T offers a wide range of sizes to fit almost any sport utility or light truck, and can be mounted with either the raised outline white letters or the serrated black letters facing outward. It also has Bridgestone's Platinum Pact warranty, a 30-Day Buy & Try Guarantee, and a 60,000 mile treadwear warranty.

Pirelli Scorpion A/T (On-/Off-Road All-Terrain)

Image

Simply put, the Pirelli Scorpion A/T runs circles around ordinary tires designed for Light Trucks and Sport Utility Vehicles. In terms of versatility. All-terrain handling. And sheer ride comfort.

On the highway or off the beaten path, under ideal conditions or a torrential downpour, Scorpion A/T is a consistently superior performer. Pirelli's advanced design and manufacturing methods have endowed the Scorpion A/T with truly impressive off-road capabilities, legendary Pirelli handling, plus a remarkably quiet and comfortable highway ride.

Add to all that the outstanding durability and handsome raised white outling lettering on selected sizes and you've got an all-season design that touches all the bases.

The Scorpion A/T, no other Pirelli covers this much ground.

Pirelli Scorpion ATR (On-/Off-Road All-Terrain)

Image

The Scorpion ATR is Pirelli's On-/Off-Road All-Terrain light truck tire developed for pickup, crossover and sport utility vehicle drivers that want to combine on-road civility with off-road capability. The Scorpion ATR is designed to master long highway journeys, wet roads and the challenges of winter driving by combining paved road comfort and handling with rough terrain grip and maneuverability.

The Scorpion ATR features a silica-enhanced tread compound molded into a quiet-running, symmetric all-terrain type tread pattern. A virtual continuous center rib and large, stable shoulder tread blocks provide directional stability and steering response while interlocked independent tread blocks in the center tread area further promote acoustic comfort, even on-road wear and off-road traction. Sweeping central circumferential grooves and lateral shoulder grooves channel water to resist hydroplaning and enhance wet traction.

The independent tread blocks are siped to provide extra biting edges that enhance off-road traction on loose surfaces and in snow. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon cord to support the tread area providing predictable handling and high-speed control, while polyester cords stabilize the sidewalls and enhance ride quality.

BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO (On-/Off-Road All-Terrain)

Image


The All-Terrain T/A KO ("KO" for Key benefit On- and Off-road) is BFGoodrich's On-/Off-Road All-Terrain light truck tire developed to meet the needs of pickup truck and sport utility vehicle drivers who want confidence and control on and off the road. The All-Terrain T/A KO was designed to deliver go-anywhere traction along with outstanding durability and great wear.

The All-Terrain T/A KO features an aggressive, computer optimized, high-void all-terrain pattern with interlocking tread blocks and innovative siping to provide traction and handling without generating excessive noise. "ShoulderLock" upper sidewall traction bars maximize "aired down" performance by provide the clawing action necessary to develop traction and steering control in deep dirt and sand. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts on top of BFGoodrich's TriGard (3-ply polyester cord sidewall plies) construction for strength and durability.

Single strand beads (a single strand of bead wire is continuously wrapped multiple times until the desired strength is provided) enhance the tire's fit to the wheel to improve uniformity and ride quality, while rim protectors molded into the lower sidewall help shelter wheels from off-road hazards, especially during "aired down" operation.

You probably might get in the Euro size i.e. 31x10.5 15s which works out to be similar to the size you stated above... I got it from the Michelin ppl.

I'm looking for some 225/65 17s as well.

Is anyone using 31x10.5 15's on their ford ranger or B2500?
This tire looks as if it may be too big for the front fender wells??
I am having much difficulty in finding any tire in All Terrain with size 265-70-15 far less the original Michelins. :?
Only PPM seems to have this size in Roadstone. Is Roadstone AT any good? They are from Nexen I believe.

The 31 x 10.5 is a slightly taller tyre than the 265/70, but is narrower, so it all works ;-) You wont get the tyre rubbing because that is the problem I have had with 255/70 15s on the Mazda. An older model...
The 31.0 x 10.5 will work fine.

Last price I got form L&DG is $870.00 and they are in Kumho.
