Looks like generally Platinum 4x4 owners like me have a good enough satisfaction with the Dynapros to not feel like we have to rush out and change them. I am leasing my vehicle and I am sure they will last until turn in date....planning to buy the truck out if the residual vs. value stays where it is (bought X-Plan and got a great trade value).


I do NOT go off road but we had snow/ice this winter and they worked just fine.... never pulled the locking switch....smile.... AZPLAT

For some reason I have never got a set of Michelin that are round. I swear their tires are square. I have sworn off the brand except for trailer tires

Did you ever make the switch to 275 60 r20? Thinking of doing the same thing. If you did, how do they ride in comparison to the 275 55 20?

Holy dead thread, Batman!

I had the Michelin Defenders (updated LTX ms/2) installed a few thousand miles ago.
I did go from factory Goodyear Wranglers in 275/55R20 to a 275/60R20 in the Michelins.
Even though they are a bit larger, my MPG has stayed the same....or may have increase an insignificant amount (once you take your MPG and multiply by the additional 3.4% you are covering in distance...which is almost 0.5 MPG on the highway)

Frankly, the Michelin’s are nearly silent, but that was expected since they have a highway tread design. They ride about the same, to me, as the Goodyear tires. Maybe I’m not very sensitive to that, or there wasn’t much change...either way, I didn’t really notice any/much difference. I didn’t have the Hankooks, so I can’t speak to them.

I hope that helps.

Below is a bad pic with the Michelin tires. In person, they do fill the wheel wells better.

Figured I'd give you time to get some miles on them
Thanks for the feedback. Definitely going to go 275/60.

Default Differences between the Michelin Michelin - LTX M/S2 and the Defender LTX M/S??

Time Warp.... smile. OK..... as OP on this thread, I kept the Hankooks on and now after just under 4 years and 50K miles.... I still have about 6-7 32nd even wearing tread but finally gonna get new tires.... I am planning on keeping the truck for 10 years and it has literally been trouble free.

Does anyone know the REAL differences between the Michelin Michelin - LTX M/S2 and the Defender LTX M/S, other than speed rating.... $40 price.... ride?? ..... traction??

I have done searches on Discount, Costco, Big O, Tire Rack and others that leave my mind spinning.....

Any factual inputs would be appreciated..... AZPLAT

According to Michelin chat..... the ONLY difference is LTX M/S2 is ~$40-50 more per tire, UTQG (720 A A vs. 800 A A) and speed rating, H vs. T.....here is chat I just had with Michelin rep.... Defender LTX is clear choice unless higher speed rating is worth it to YOU....

BTW.... Tire Rack rates Defender #1 vs. LTX #3 out of 38!!!.... ratings higher across the board for Defender!!!.. AZPLAT

NA Michelin US (New Prod)

The Defender LTX MS is a combined tread of the 2 tires (defender and ltx ms), it is made to have great mileage while also offering great traction during summer, mud and snow.

Excellent information you found. They are also a much better source than what we would have guessed or opined about..
I figured the factory would be the ones to say what the real differences are between the two tires.
That makes me feel even better about my choice to have bought the Defender LTX M/S.

How are you liking the Defenders? Mine go on next Thursday. They're plain looking but I want the smoothest ride possible. My Dynapros were good until 50k but then turned into bricks. Decided not to buy another set because they weren't great in the rain. Put on CRs top rated Cross Contact LX20 EcoPlus - even worse ride than worn out Hankooks so they're coming off. It came down to the Defender and Cooper AT3 4S which are known to have a soft ride but I figured keep the MPG if they're equal otherwise.
