I'll probably go with the LTX/2's once my HP Tours wear out. I like Micheline and hear very few positive reviews with the Dunlops

But yes - I believe the HP Tour's are being closed out.

We just traded our 2009 with 81K miles. It looked and drove like new. We are hoping for a similar experience with the 2015 LX that will be delivered on Thursday.

These are simply great vehicles.
