Recommend Michelin LTX M/S Tires

Just turned 90K miles with a stock set of Michelin LTX M/S tires on my 2wd Ranger (225/70 15's). I thought you would like to see a
few pictures, these are the passenger's side front tire. The last picture is a close-up of the wear-bar, showing how much deeper the tread is:

My dad had those on his 99 F-150. I hated them, so I did what any nice son would do.

BURN EM DOWN!

I rotated them every 10K miles when they were newer. They have probably been about 30K miles now without rotating them.

They're great tires as far as long lasting tread. I know they aren't any type of off-road tire or all terrain but how well do they do in the dirt/mud/sand/snow etc.

Those were the first tires I had on my truck when I bought it. They weren't to bad, but when I bought my truck it had 35k miles on it and thy were replaced about 3-4 months after I bought the truck, They were very low on tread.

Had those on my Z71 before I got the Ranger. I took it offroad several times, I'm sure they are decent in sand, crappy in snow, and in mud, well. I bottom out on the transfer case skid plate once and put it in reverse with the tires barely touching the ground, the tread wasn't aggressive enough to pull it back through where I came, so I had to get several people pile in the back of the bed to put weight over the back tires.

Mine have about 50k on them. I like them, but as already mentioned...decent in sand, but not to good in snow & mud. I'll probably replace them early next year, just not sure what I want yet.
