michelin LTX M/S 2 on a dually
I have run the Ltx M/S 1 (235-85-16) on my 2004 GMC dually and have gotten 75,000 miles with no rotation running mostly pavement empty and occasionally with a dump trailer.
I expect most of my future mileage will be empty on pavement and a few times a month towing a 3 horse gooseneck trailer.
Been reading some older posts about the new version LTX M/S 2 with some mixed feelings on tire wear and side sway when towing.
Looking to order new tires in the next day or two and thought I would ask, what folks experience is with the M/S2 on dually's since it has been out now for around 3 years?

I have LTX A/T 2 rubber on my 2011 LML dually, since they came as "original equipment". I have 42k KM on them with about 70% up front and 50% across the rear. The truck hauls a 2 1/2t welding skid most of the time and I have yet to rotate the tires.
On dry pavement, cruising at HWY speed with or without a trailer, the truck feels very planted and rolls with no noticeable "buzz". The tires are not snow tires or dedicated winter boots by any means, BUT they do extremely well in snow (and loose oil sand, believe it or not) FOR WHAT THEY ARE.
Mine are 235/80r17.
Edited: Sorry, I have the LTX A/T2 on my rig, not M/S2

The M/S2 (IMO) are worse then the M/S1s. Get the LTX A/T2s.

I had the Michelin LTX M/s tires on my dually and now have the LTX M/S 2's on it. I cannot tell any difference in the ride at all. They ride super smooth and quiet. I love them.
