From the ratings Iíve read the Michelin XPS Ribs have excellent wear, but lack in wet traction. They are definitely a truck tire.

I have the Michelin Agilis Cross Climate C tires on my 2006 158" Sprinter Rv and am happy with them. These are the directional tread tires. Can't tell much difference from my old LTX MS2 tires. I have about 7000 miles on them.

They are also available in a non directional tread in my size 245/75R16.

Thanks for the info. Not many reviews are out there for this new tire. Glad I got my set of LTX M/S's just before they were discontinued.

Great information, it will be very interesting to see how the users of MS2's and Defenders see the new version once they use them.


Did you notice any increase in road harshness with the Agilis?

Costco will mount tires they don't sell themselves?

It's a new thing Costco started last year. They also repair tires.

I installed the new Michelin Agilis tires on Libertas in late May 2018 and Fred Ahlgren (Gustov) installed Agilis around the same time. We have both been pleased the ride.

This past May I installed a set of Agilis Cross Climate on my 2012 Pleasure Way Plateau (2011 3500 Sprinter); only have about 4K miles so far; not a fair to compare to a set of mostly worn out Continentals (35k miles) but I've been very pleased;

The van is driven almost exclusively on mountain roads in Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina; they have relatively low road noise, the handle good, and twice this summer I had to drive in two hours of torrential rain and they felt well planted on the wet roads; they also have the mountain/snow symbol which has value to me since I live at 3600 ft elavation and frequently run into light snow on arriving home when the surroundings areas are getting rain.

4k miles doesn't say anything about the future and moving from worn tires to new most always gives a good impression of the new but I don't recall ever being this satisfied with the Continentals.

All subjective but my take on the Agilis

Did you get the directional or symmetrical tread pattern version? It appears both are available in the US?
