Time for tires for my tow vehicle. We tow with a 2012 Chevy Express 3500 Duramax.
I've used Michelin LTX A/S on everything I owned in the past. I'm pretty loyal to Michelins, never had a tire failure and they gave me a ton of miles.
I have to admit we've been on a ton of gravel roads, plenty of grass, and in some fairly muddy situations while full-timing in our Avion. As an urbanite, I don't have any experience choosing tires appropriate for our boondocking needs. The Michelin LTX A/T2 is coming up as the application for my truck. But I'd like to know if any of you have driven these tires in grass, dirt or mud.
I will only buy American made tires for our truck.
Please let me know what kind of experience you have had towing and the tires you use.

Thank you.

I am a big fan of Hankook tires and they work great out here in Montana. I have ran a lot of Hankook Dynapro ATM RF10 which they recently stopped making but the replacement AT2 RF11 are suppose to be great also. I can easily get 70-80,000 miles out of a set and have never had one fail on me.
