Default Re: Michelin LTX Force SUV tyres launched

Hi all, my Fortuner is due for new tyres, but I am big time confused between Continental Cross Contact AT & Michelin LTX Force. which tyre will perform better in mud? What about FE? Can someone please list out pros & cons of both the tyres.

The 235/65 R17 is NOT available in the range. Was it there earlier and removed now? That is the tyre size for the XUV. The Michelin site says this:

I am contemplating to replace my OEM wanderers in my Duster AWD with either Yoko Geolanders or Michelin LTX force. When I physically inspected both, I found the sidewalls of Michelin to be softer than Geolander. I wonder why many forums write that Geolanders have more issues of sidewall cracks/failures than Michelin. Now I am confused as in which one to select.

Because Geolanders have had the most issue with sidewall. Now, if you won't go rock climbing, Geolanders too would do good else, you may always get the Michelin.
