Those Michelins are actually what I have now. They were on my LR4 when I bought it, so I'm not sure how old they are or how many miles they have on them. The tread is relatively shallow, although the tread is relatively shallow on these tires when they are brand new.

I've had them on some local trails, which are a mix of mud and rocks. They did surprisingly well, although I think a lot of that is due to the LR4's traction control. I'd be reticent to take them on a Colorado trail with sharp rocks.

I've debated on going with an "all terrain" for 19" wheels. The choices are ether Cooper Zeon LTZ's or Goodyear Duratracs, both of which are in XL load ratings and not even an LT tire.

Getting 18" wheels on an LR4 is one bad decision or another. It's either 18" LR3 wheels with spacers, which seems pretty ghetto to me, or 18" Compomotive wheels that I don't particularly care for the look of. But 18" wheels would let me use E-rated tires.
