My 2015 F150 has Goodyear Wrangler ATs and will move up to LTX M/S2, just like the AS in another year or so. Pretty sure all AT tires throw rocks & gravel and my front AS corner guards show it, but I guess they are doing their job. I like the increased stability of E rated tires when towing and can handle the slightly harsher ride when not by airing down a bit. Have never had any issues with several sets of Michelins on other trucks the in the past.

The Hwy tires will be quieter, last longer and give you better gas mileage. I would never take my trailer on roads were I needed all terrain tires.

I would probably not take my FC "offroad" as well under most circumstances but I do take my truck on Forest Service roads when unhitched. This late summer and fall spent 7 weeks in SD WY MT ID & CO and most campgrounds have gravel roads, not to mention all the highway road construction that can ding up your trailer. Stick to your Hwy tires and camp at Disney and you will be fine. 😀

Highway tires are great if you don't live in snow country of if you change them for summer and winter travel. I do that some years as I keep extra wheels. A highway type tread not good in snow. Again, it's all about where one lives and how the TV is used when not towing. I appreciate the quiet running "summer" tread till it snows. Enjoy the holidays everyone.

Has anyone got any experience using Michelin LTX tires all year 'round?
Or are they strictly a winter tire?

As I said above, I prefer to run my tires all year 'round.

Same here, I run Michelin LTX MS2's year round. Just make sure you get LT'S and not passenger P types, as the tread is the same but the ply is not.

the B.F.GOODRICH ATs do.

All terrain has less tread contact. You can always ask Michelin. Be sure to include climate, terrain and expected use for an LT tire.

I have 6 Michelin AT2’s on an F350 superduty. Not as aggressive as Goodrich or Wrangler AT’s but they do the job in rain, and snow. Very quiet & smooth ride. Fronts are at 75psi, and rears are at 65psi.

I use the same tires winter and summer, Michelin LTX on my truck. Thankfully I donít live on the other side of the bridge where they require winter tires. Never had an issue.

However, this is pothole country. People who buy cheap tires or keep them under inflated, are always lined up changing tires after a big pothole. Iíve never had a single incident of tire or vehicle damage from a road issue.

All Season or All-Terrain Tires for TV

Iím on my third set of LTX AT 2ís ďEĒ rated. I drive a Tundra & have gotten close to 70k on each set. Run 72lbs towing & 50 lbs when not. Decent in the snow. No flats & never loose air.
