Thank you for the post RobKar.

We would be happy to help you with your tire needs.

Which General Tire model are your curently running on? What are your likes and dislikes with your current set? Anything you would like to change? What driving conditions do you typically see? What would you like your next set of tires to do for you?

We look forward to your response.

Hi Mat,

Tires are Grabber HTS. I have liked this tire a lot.
If it helps, I am 2WD and she pavement princess 99+%.
I pull a 8000lbs trailer 5-6 times a year.

I am also looking at the Michelin LTX M/S2. For this tire I have a decent price from my local Costco ~$860 OTD and includes road hazard. (Note: This is with the new coupon offered starting this week)


Thanks,
RobKar

Thank you for the additional info Rob.

The LTX MS2 is an awesome tire but I'm not sure it's the right model for your needs.

Are you driving in any snow? I see that you live in SanDiego. How many miles are you typically driving per year? What would you like your next set of tires to do for you? Also, What budget have you set aside for this purchase?

Hello Matt

* Budget, Hey, I am cheap- except when it comes to safety and the Kids.
* Snow, Very little snow, I ski 2-3 time per year.
* miles per year ... lets see where did I put that calculator, about 15,000
* I would go with an LT tire but I really don't want the stiffness and I am not pulling a load very often.
* What would I like my tures to do for me, Could I get the winning lotto numbers? HA!, I liked the grabbers and they had GREAT wet traction. They also had a little better weight holding then others tires in the same class (trailer pulling again). I guess I would like to better the Grabbers I had.

I have over 110,000 on the truck and I have had 2 sets of SR-A (They sucked) 1 set of REVO's (They were OK but did not last) and the Grabbers.

Thanks,
Rob

You rock Rob. Great reply :)

I'm a big believer in the saying, "If it's not broken, don't fix it". If you are happy with the Generals you should probably run them again. However, if you want to one up the HTS tires you are running now, the Michelin LTX MS2 would be an excellent pick. This model does extremely well in wet conditions and with a silica based rubber compound, handles snow conditions very well. As you have probably read already, the LTX MS2 is also built for longevity and comes standard with an 70K Mile TreadLife Warranty. As far as towing goes, the 265/70-18 LTX MS2 carries a 114 load index meaning it meets the load carry capacity of your Titan.

OUr current mail order pricing on both models in the 265/70-18 size is as follows:

General Grabber HTS - $164.00 each
Michelin TLX MS2 - $196.00 each

As you may know already, shipping and sales tax is FREE to CA.

If you prefer to purchase local, I suggest contacting your local America's Tire or Discount Tire to see what they can do for you. Our local stores are very good about matching OTD prices if yuo can find them cheaper.
