Looking for a top-performing all-terrain light truck tire that still offers low noise and good road manners? You can’t go wrong with Michelin’s LTX A/T2, designed to meet the tires needs of recreational and commercial pickup, van and SUV drivers.
The LTX A/T2 is designed with an advanced tread compound that’s optimized for light truck needs…tough enough for long wear, but soft enough for outstanding traction. It’s molded into an independent tread block design with Michelin Tires Biting Edges, notched blocks in the tread pattern for enhanced traction on surfaces like mud, snow, gravel or wet grass. The tire footprint benefits from Michelin’s Advanced MaxTouch Construction, w ...[more]

Innovation and “green” design come together in Michelin’s Primacy MXM4, a grand touring tire for luxury sedan and coupe drivers who want low noise and ride comfort along with great all-weather handling.
Designed for better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions, the Primacy MXM4 uses Michelin’s Helio Compound technology, with a sunflower-oil-enriched tread formulation for low rolling resistance. It’s molded into an asymmetric tread design with a European-style tread profile and rounder shoulders for predictable cornering ability. The circumferential grooves channel water away from the tire’s contact patch for enhanced wet-weather grip, with Michelin’s exclusive 3-D Variable Thickness Sipe Technology for added biting edges in ...[more]

Let’s talk for a moment about tire pressure.
Every tire flexes a little at the bottom, as the weight of the vehicle bears down on it. The section that is subject to that weight and flexing changes constantly as the tire rotates, and the average tire rotates 750 times over the course of a mile. At 60 mph, that means the tire rotates 750 times per minute. All that flexing and deformation means heat buildup, and increases tire pressure by roughly four pounds per square inch (PSI). After an hour or so on the road, a tire is about 50 degrees hotter than ambient air…but that temperature differential is even greater in hot weather, especially since pavement is hotter than ambient air. Heavier loads and higher speeds will add to that heat buildup.

On a long interstate drive, you might hear the drone of your tires on the pavement for hours on end. You can turn up the stereo to drown it out and keep yourself from being lulled to sleep, but it’s still there regardless. Everyone knows that a set of mud tires or all-terrain tires will be louder than passenger car tires due to their tread pattern, but why are one set of tires louder than another, when they’re otherwise the same design?
That’s rather a complicated question, but we’ll do our best.
• Part of the noise you hear is actually the sound of air as it’s being compressed inside the grooves of the tread. Tires like the Bridgestone Turanza S ...[more]
