A big Thank you And tire ?

I don't post all that often but, I want to thank you all for the great advise and info. I just finished the weep hole project and am in the middle of the Hyperpro replacement.
QUESTION: About a month ago some one mentioned a new tire with vastly improved milage. He was going to check on availability for the LT. Has anyone heard the verdict on this product??

Re: A big Thank you And tire ?

First I have heard of it, but would be interested to hear about it.

AFAIK, the ME880 is generally the longest lasting tire overall for the LT.

There was some mewing about a Michelin tire for the LT... But that's all it was... mewing...

Tony's right, the Metz is the mileage king for the big lady....

The new Michelin is not load rated for the LT according to their site.
