MNA Launches New LT/SUV Tire

Michelin North America said its new Michelin LTX M/S2 tire for light trucks and SUVs offers significant improvements in safety, longevity and fuel efficiency compared to its predecessor, the LTX M/S.

The tire, which will be available in 38 P-Metric and LT sizes ranging from 15- to 20-inch rim diameters, will carry a 70,000-mile limited warranty.

The LTX M/S2 offers several new features, including:
• Interlocking siping that allows the tread blocks to lock together and preserve rigidity
• 8% more biting edges than the prior generation, resulting in better snow traction
• Added silica for greater wet performance
• Better lateral water evacuation
• A design that greatly reduces vibrations and road noise
• A unique contact patch shape that evenly distributes the forces of acceleration, braking and cornering
• An extra steel belt that provides incredible durability and strength to handle loads up to 13,500 pounds

“With the Michelin LTX M/S2 tire, consumers don’t have to sacrifice one benefit for another, offering a long tread life and true all-season security and utility for greater confidence,” said Rob Cunningham, light truck category manager for MNA. “The Michelin LTX M/S tire is proven in the market and we have worked hard to ensure that the next generation of this product is even better.”
