I'm shopping for tires for my truck and I'm stuck (like many others, based on Google searches) between these two tires. I am aware that the purpose of the two tires is not really the same. I use my truck mainly for daily driving duties. It does minimal highway duty. I currently have LTX A/T tires on the truck now, and am happy with their performance. My dilemma comes with not knowing how the M/S2 tires will look on the truck. I prefer a slightly more aggressive tread pattern visually but since the truck has had A/T's on if for about the last 15 years, I don't even know what it would look like with the highway duty M/S2 tires on it. I do occasionally drive the truck on dirt areas. I would not off-road with it (it's only 2wd) but it gets used on plenty of dirt roads. In addition, it is used to launch and retrieve my boat which weighs about 3200 lbs and, being 2wd, I depend on grip on the boat ramp and I am not sure how the M/S2 compares with the A/T2 in that regard. Just looking for insight on which I should go with. The A/T2 runs about $15 more than the M/S2. Tread life is not an overall issue because basically even the A/T's dry rot before they wear down. I won't consider any non-Michelin tires, so it's between these two.
