There was a recall on these tires last year, not sure if still relevant

The tires were produced between September 2012 and early June 2013.
Sizes are as follows:
MICHELIN LTX M/S 2: P275/55R20 111T RBL, P265/65R18 112T and P265/60R18 109T ORWL
MICHELIN X Radial LT2: P265/65R18 112T and P275/55R20 111T
MICHELIN Latitude Tour: P255/60R19 108S and P255/70R18 112T
Michelin is recalling approximately 100,000 tires in order to retrieve an estimated 2,500 tires (about 2.5% of the recalled population).
Affected tires could have partial or full sidewall perforations that could cause them to experience loss of air pressure.

That is true, but Michelin immediately recalled and replaced all inventory and gave people new tires for the ones already installed. IIRC, the manufacturing dates for the defective tires was fairly short in duration.

How cheap is cheap? Would you ship?

So where are people getting the LTX MS/2s? I 've been looking to replace the 255/70R17 General Ameritrac TR's for a while, but everywhere I've looked online either doesn't list them at all or has been showing them out of stock for as long as I've been looking.

I get mine put on tomorrow at the Dealership. Dealer price beat all of my other options in the area including Discount Tire by about $20. I was a little surprised. Can't wait to get rid of my slippery Scorpions

I run Cooper Zeon LTZ's (XL-rated) - I can buy a second set with what I saved over other tires. .

Coops have been good to me in both rain and the slop we call snow 'round here....

I'm running P-rated in the stock size and am extremely happy with them. I don't tow anything though.

I am sure that shipping would kill any deal -- even if I gave the tires away...I am in the state of WA....where are you?

Fantastic tires! You get what you pay for.

I have found firestone destination LE2s are fantastic as well. I put them on my 06. They were about half price. Check the reviews out on tire rack. Super quiet great traction even in the snow. Highly recommend them.

California. How many miles do you have on them? Shipping would kinda suck, but let's ponder the possibilities.
