Price: $875.00
Pros: -Quiet ride -Great grip in the rain -Good for daily drivers since it is primarily a highway tire with A/T attitude
Cons: -Not a very aggressive tire tread or style -Not rated as a snow tire even though it's labeled M/S
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I just recently got these tires to replace whatever brand snow tires I had on my XJ before. My old tires were pretty beat, so anything was better than what I had. After driving for a month or so with these tires, however, I'm pleased to say that they are more than just "better than what I had," they're great.
Previously the interior of my Jeep was noisy at highway speeds. Having to crank your music up and yell to have a conversation was something that I was so used to, that I was shocked at how quiet my Jeep rides now.
Handling has improved dramatically as well, and almost all vibrations are dampened by these tires, which can be a bad thing if something goes awry and causes vibrations, as you probably won't notice it right away.

Performance in the rain is amazing. Previously I had to drive like an old lady at the first signs of rain. I would hydroplane if I took off too quickly from a stop, leading to some close calls taking off from red lights. Stopping in the rain was always a toss up as well, usually my ABS was on full blast when attempting to stop in the rain. Now, I can give it full throttle taking off from a stop in pouring rain and not slip a bit. I haven't had my ABS activate once since I got these tires, and even when purposely trying to get my tires to slip on a few patches of ice, loss of traction was barely even noticeable.

Overall, if you do a lot of highway driving, I definitely recommend these tires. They perform well on the pavement in a multitude of conditions, and they've still got enough bite to the tread for your occasional off road use.
My only gripe is that they don't look very aggressive, and they're not very wide compared to the snow tires I had previously. Looks aside however, these tires get the job done, and get it done well.

Price: $1.00
Pros: smooth, quiet ride. traction in dry & wet conditions. Long wear
Cons: Not a winter/snow tire. Not an off road tire
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I just bought the vehicle and these were the tires that were installed. Drove at high speeds and seemed to handle well. Hope I can get the 100K out of them that some people claim. (I had a pair of michelins on my acura and they hit 110K)

Price: $230.00
Pros: Good all weather. Quiet at all Highway speeds Smooth luxury car like ride
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Best all around city/highway tires you can buy.
If your looking for a soft luxury car ride Michelin can fill your needs.
This is the second set for this ZJ.
They have held up well in the Chicago urban jungle of potholes and other city road-hazards.
This set has 20,000 miles as of 5/19/11 with no obvious wear.
I run in full time all wheel drive, all the time which distributes the wear evenly.
Just rotate every 7,000 miles (back to front, crisscross front to back)

Price: $145.00
Pros: Great street tread pattern. Great in snow, rain, daily driving. Use them on my wife's XJ.
Cons: a little pricey but worth it.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have 225/75/15's on my wife's XJ. I think they are just great tires. They ride very nice, handle well, and take snow and rain very well. They are a bit pricey but the tread has been great and when rotated they last a long time.

Price: $173.00
Pros: Amazing Tire for well rounded performance. Much better on the highway than others I have tried.
Cons: Less aggressive for excessive mud and snow.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have had my Michelin LTX M/S on my Jeep TJ Unlimited for a year now. Amazing tires. They grip in all conditions, year round,
with no troubles. They are quieter on the highway and handle much better than the stock Goodyear Wrangler GS/A. I used to slip
in rain and snow. I found the GS/As to be great for excessive snow and mud, but all other conditions they were not reliable
and had unpredictable grip which made turns with any speed very scary. These michelins handle speed in all conditions well.
We are skiers and cottagers and these tires handle everything we throw at them. We have driven in snow as deep as the wheel wells
with some slipping, but still not stuck. Mud that covered my side steps and still, not stuck. I launched a 3000 lb boat on a
beach and pulled it back out with no problems. They are quiet, reliable, smooth ride and stick like glue. We love them!
