Default Michelin LTX M/S2: Anyone running these?

Hey guys,

I have a 2012 Ram 2500 Hemi & I wanted to get some opinions on that tire.

I have the M/S2 in stock size (265/70r17) & they seem to ride far better than my Toyo ATs being 35" on 18s. I'm have suspension work done (Carli Dominator 3.0) & unless that fixes the issues I'm having w/ ride comfort, I may dump the Toyos & get another set of M/S2 tires.

Sizing the tire to 275/65r20 seems to get the tire height to 34, so I'd only lose an inch of height on the truck which works out perfectly.

I won't even field theories about 20" rims vs 17s, etc. I just want real world experience driving w/ that exact tire.Has anyone run these in a 20" rim?

I have the Michelin M/S 2 on my 2009 Ram 1500 with 20" rims
I will just say that i prefer them for cornering on wet roads
mine may be just a bit taller then Stock height

How's the comfort? Fairly smooth or you notice bumps?

We have these in 275/55R20 on our Ford Expedition and love them. The handle well and have, in my opinion, the best wet traction out there. The provide a very good highway ride. They are expensive, and you get what you pay for. We even saw great traction in snow. Highly recommended.

I really liked the ride with the Michelins & the stock Mopar shocks
Now that i have the Bilsteins, the ride seems harsher
but it may be all in my old mind
