I did the Michelin AT2s a few years ago now, in San Angelo, TX at the Discount Tire there, after
corresponding about availability by store with their head office marketing and technical guys.
They said most Texas locations would have them in stock as they were a light truck tire, and
Texas is the land of light trucks. They were right on both counts.
I paid around $800 for 4 installed and balanced, but didn't take any of the extended care stuff.
They also had a $70 Michelin mail-in rebate (they took care of it at the store) and a few weeks
after I got home I received my rebate in the mail. I see they've gone up a few bucks and are $200
each it looks like now. Their OTD price for 4 is $935 now. You could run them through some other
states and price them at lower state taxes if you really wanted to save a few more bucks. Texas
is 8.25% - not sure if that is a new tax rate, but it seems kind of high. I have no affiliation with
Discount Tire, but would recommend them to anyone looking for new tires, at reasonable prices,
with great service. YMMV.
As luck would have it, the new F150 has the same Michelin AT2 tires on it. Slightly greater tread depth
(1/16" more?) than the MS2s was one reason I went with the AT2 models. And the have a distinct tread
pattern along the outer tread edge, that is decidedly more aggressive than most other standard
radial tires. I figured I might need the extra tread depth and the "grippier" tread edges in the snow
and mud we get up here in Eskimo country.

There was one review on their website which was less than flattering, but I haven't had any of the
issues the reviewer mentioned.
