I mounted Michelin ATX on my Explorer and they are an excellent tire. A little more road noise then my Firestones but handle better. I went to 2 tire dealers and both dealers quoted me prices on the LX. I called Michelin Tire Co. to ask about the difference between the LX nad ATX and was told that the ATX was not recommended for the Explorer because of lateral instability. Michelin is an excellent tire but call them first before you buy them. Some salesman are willing to mount anything to make a sale or move product only because they have them in stock. One of these dealers is still mounting another brand that is also not recommended by the manufacturer, I think its called Wilderness, forget who makes them but its a well known brand and the tire is very popular because of price and looks. Check with the manufacturer before you buy. Don't buy Perrelli.
