May 31, 2007

Michelin North America Inc. has rolled out its new LTX A/T2 light truck/SUV tire. The tire will be available this July in 32 sizes, ranging from 215/85R16 to 285/65R18.

The LTX A/T2 contains aggressive, notched tread blocks and biting edges for traction and a third steel belt for extra durability. At the same time, the tire is specifically designed to provide a smooth, quiet ride, according to Michelin officials.

"Drivers who use their light trucks and SUVs for both work and play will especially enjoy the LTX A/T2 tire," says Parmeet Grover, Michelin brand director, Michelin North America.
