half way round australia
I have fitted a set or LTX force to my Jeep Compass Trailhawk. It was a 18500 km trip, 3 .5 moths
From Melbourne to Perth, Broom, Cape Leveque, Gibb River rd, Mitchell falls, El Questro, Bungle Bungle,
Woolf creek Crater, Katherine, Mount Isa, Birdsville, Maree, Melbourne. Never had a flat. Some of the ruffest
roads, hundreds of km of corigation, sand dunes, bulldust. Everything you can imagine. The tyers preform fantastically. Sometime it took us 4 hour to do 32 km. Also the tyres were very quiet on made roads.
So I highly recommend the LTX force tyres for outback Australia.
Purchased in April 2018 for $51,000.00.
So far I've only travelled 5000km on them, original tyres on my 2017 Navara STX were Toyo Open Country, wet road handing and water dispersion are excellent, I can feel a definite difference in overall handing, noise levels are up marginally at highway speeds but the difference is negligible. Fuel consumption has increase by around 0.5L/100KM. In a nutshell, a great tyre and at $274 a corner for 265/60R18 very good value.
Purchased in June 2019 at Ian Diffen for $274.00.
As others said - quiet and good feel
I got a set of these for my 2011 Triton after seeing other reviews suggesting these made for quiet running and good handling. That's exactly what I would say after running them for a month. They also seem 'soft' (but in a positive way) although that might be because the original tyres I had were fat and worn. Well done Michelin. My only beef with them is that they had a promotion for a chance to go to a Grand Prix - then said I was not eligible because I bought them through Bob Jane. Shame on you Michelin for that, but your tyres are great.
Purchased in June 2019 at Bob Jane T-Marts for $915.00.
Replaced Bridgestone A/Ts on my D22 Navara (after only 40 000kms) with the Michelins (actually LTX Force). After 3000 odd kms these tyres have been really impressive. Much less road noise, much better grip when cornering in the wet and have kept pressure consistently. Fitted for $250 each (265/75 R16) - so far, couldn't be happier! My father-in-law got over 90 000kms out of his Michelins on a BT-50 so I'm hoping longevity will be good too.
Great performance all round, quiet on road too the bridgestones I had previously wore quickly and were noisy.
Grip appears to be alot thicker and probably will mean longer wear and grip in mud and dirt.
Got a great deal on these at costco with the $100 off Michelin deal.
164,00 klms. on a '99 LandRover Discovery Td5. A lot of that towing an 18 Ft. or a 20Ft van
Why would I buy anything else? Never had a puncture in 164,00 klms. Good on the road, not noisy. Very good crawling around in rough country. Not so good in mud but still better than a highway tyre. I sold the vehicle with 164,000 Klms on the rear tyres & they still had 4mm of rubber left. It looks as if Michelin Aust. are no longer importing them. Update; the tyres are still imported but here in Oz we are at the bottom of the list when it comes to Michelin's export quotas. The bulk of them go to Europe & the U.S.A. I imagine. Here they can be v...ery hard to come by at times. I ordered some and 6 months later they were still not available & Michelin (Aust.) didn't seem to be very interested. The dealer was embarrassed about the whole issue. Very low operating cost.
Replacing my michelins after 162,000 kms.
After my last review I am replacing the Michelins on my courier after 162,000 kms, still haven't had a puncture, ( just about worn out ).I am putting the michelins back on,I noticed in one of the reviews the price they were quoted,jax tyres in launceston,tas are $243.00 fitted for the 265/70/15's.
A 140000+km ATR
Michelin don't cooperate with a lot of the 4WD mags, and that's about the only reason I can think why their LTX ATR's don't get mentioned a lot more often. My 265/70/15 Michelin's came with the 2006 Mazda Bravo I brought new and I've just replaced them after they hit 136,000kms. Yep, that's a 1 in front of the 36,000. Could have squeezed another 5,000-10,000 out of them, but opted to keep 2 for extra spares next time I head north. I live 3km's along an unsealed road and about 20% driving would be dirt roads in and around the NSW mid north c...oast and I do a lot of beach driving. Most of the rest is on the Pacific Hwy and local roads. These tyres also come with a LT 112 load rating, which makes them stronger than Coopers and much stronger than most of the rest 140,000km mileage, quiet and very strong. Only one minor con is the slight bulgy shaping (great for sand) but could make sidewalls a bit more vulnerable.
2006 Toyota Hilux 80,000Klms and they are only half worn. 265/70 R15 112S – fits standard SR5 Wheels
I have tried BFG, Bridgestone’s and Coopers but nothing comes close to the Michelin LTX A/T’s. The BFG’s A/T were simply dangerous on damp roads, the Coopers (If you can find ROUND ones) just don’t last like the Bull#### warranty they offer but the Michelin LTX A/T is such an awesome all-round tyre that just lasts and lasts. I have been all the way up to the tip of Cape York and Lawn Hill National park on some of the toughest roads plus I use this vehicle as my work truck so it constantly has 800kgs in the back. You just feel so confident on a...ll road conditions with these tyres – but most importantly you don’t have in the back of your mind that when fully loaded on a hot day doing hi-way speeds in the NT that your tyres will blow. Michelin LTX A/T is simply the best A/T tyre you can buy. Read this review Michelin Australia – you need to keep making this tyre!!! Confident on all road conditions but somehow won’t wear out and the rubber is not dangerously hard Michelin is looking at stopping manufacturing
The best tyre i have owned to date and tempted to go back for another set even at the High price tag... Would like to try a cheaper brand just to compare though!
Had them on a Ford Courier since new, about 2007 and i'm up to 135000klms! Have heard the newer series in the same tyre wont last as long, but i am tempted to go back for another set, except for the price tag of about $360! I am doing my research but finding it hard to find tryes in my size of 265 70 15's. Maxxis have very good reviews and Mickey Thomson for the same price roughly as t...
Awesome tyres that have handled everything i throw at them. would buy them always if they weren't so expensive.
Been on my Bravo since new, done 100,000kms. towed a 1 ton trailer for about 50,000ks.
3 Puntures all on passenger side rear. ( 1 was a 5" knife, rest were nails off the job site). had a price to replace them for $460 each
These tyres handle well in the wet dry on and offroad are not very noisy on the highway and are resistent to punctures. They also resist round on the edges of the tyres on larger cars.
Handle great in any condition, these are fitted to a nissan patrol and are some of the best all terrain tyres i have driven on for on/offroad use.
They dont last as long as Michelin and the tyre dealer said they would.
Questions & Answers
Hello, i wondering i have replaced my tyre to michelin LTX force, but at the speed of 90Km/hr i feel that my steering shaking, has somebody have this experience? Please share..I am new to michelin
At what tread measurement we need to change tyres?
The legal minimum is 1.7 mm I think but I would replace them when they got down to 3.2 mm (1/8 inch) Your tyres are the only thing between you and the road and a big tree. In my opinion anything less than 3 mm is dangerous on a wet road.
What are the Michelin AT tyres like on the beach?
Deflated to around 18 or 20 PSI they are similar to most other AT tyres on a beach. It largely depends on how the vehicle is driven. I think most tyre purchases involve some compromise. The best tyre in sand would be an aircraft type - plain round like a doughnut with very little tread but good for nothing else.
