New Tires

I just replaced the Conntenitals on my truck with the Michelin LTX M/S2. I have never noticed such a difference in tires before. The ride is so much smoother with these tires, well worth the price.

F250 CC 6.4 4x2 lariat white/gold accent. Tailgate step, backup sensors, backup camera, moonroof, Audiophille system, chrome package, and much more. Ordered 10/9 Picked up 11/15</a>

Completely agree with you on ride smoothness. In fact, IMO they are great tires in every way except one—directional stability (hope that is the correct term). By directional stability I mean the extent to which the direction of the vehicle wanders around seemingly regardless of how the steering wheel is pointed. I have switched from Wranglers to LTX on an F-150 and Continentals to LTX on an Expedition. Both times I immediately noticed that I had to do a better job of keeping my eyes on the road, otherwise it was going to wander off the road. I also found that I had to steer in to the wind more than before. Also, it is a great tire for traction. Since our 2012 F-350 SRW doesn’t have great directional stability to begin with, I might not notice the switch to LTX.
