    I have a 2017 Z71 Midnight. It came with duratracs and the noise is getting old with only 8300 miles. Place out here has a deal on Michelin ltx at2 on 275/65/18s. I'd like to hear input from members who run these stock, If anyone does

    I ran them 275 55r 20 on my 15 suburban and 15 Tahoe. Great tire quiet for an at tire. Put 45k on one set and could barely see they were worn. They aligned well and gave good feeling while steering. Handle deep snow 20” and rain very well.

    I was very upset when they discontinued the size.

    I have 275/65-18 Nokian Rotiiva AT's on my 2016 Z71. Stock wheels. Absolutely no issues, and they are the same diameter and width as the 22" wheel\tire option. I love the tires, but they are no longer offered in an LI 116, only load range E. I really liked the LTX AT2's on a prior Tundra in this size.

    They are pretty noisy over 50 mph. It also feels like a struggle stopping with them. I will likely just go with a Michelin LTX. I had the Revo2 on my 15 Tahoe in the stock 18" size and they were good not much louder than stock but I also had a 16 Yukon with 20s and put Revo2 on them and they were loud. Very strrange. I ended up taking Bridestones return policy and put Defender LTX on they Yukon. After the Yukon, not sure I want to chance Revo2 again even though they were great on my 15 Tahoe

    I have had the same experience with the same brand\model AT tires having vastly different noise levels with varying sizes. Case in point, the 19" Cooper Zeons on my wife's Rover are unbearably loud at all speeds - intolerable over 60+ mph; whereas, the 20" Cooper Zeons were only a bit noticeable on the freeway on my prior Rover Sport. There was no discernable difference in ride\noise\dry\wet grip with my Nokians on the road compared to the OE Wranglers; but, the Nokians have much better hydroplaning resistance and off tarmac traction. Interested to hear how the LTX AT2's perform on your Z71, as they are definitely on my list as potential replacements.

    We run Michelin Defender LTX P265/65R18 MS MTP 114T on our 2008 Tahoe Hybrid and have had great service with acceptably low road noise. Have not moved to 275 size, though.
