Default Michelin AT2 vs Michelin MS2

I have no doubts that i want one of these Michelin Tires but looking for advantages of one over the other. I can't make up my mind. Hope some of you guys are running these and can give me feedback and help make my decision easier. I don't do any heavy offroading and just mess around on the farm a bit but nothing serious. Light snow in my part of the country (Couple inches usually per snow event). Is the AT that much better off road than the MS and so on would be helpful. They are 275/60/20 if that matters at all. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys..

From what you describe, I would say the M/S2 if you value a quieter, smoother tire. For just driving around the farm I don't think you'll get that much additional benefit from the AT. I'm running Nitto Terra Grapplers on my current truck and I've already decided I'm going to go with the M/S2's on the new truck. I'm not going to be using the new truck offroad as much but the drive out to my hunting camp will be a lot more pleasant in the new truck with the Michelins.

M/S You will hate the price but you love the ride, traction and handling.
If you are a Costco member they have the best package price.

Price isn't a concern. I would love to hear from anyone running the AT2's though.

M/S2 's don't get near the mileage that the original LTX m/s' did.

I just don't care for Michelin. Sorry.

Most of these guys are running junk for tires. No way they have input on a Michelin. LOL
