Michelin LTX Mud/Snow. The ones that are stock from the factory are the LTX All-Seasons. Both have claimed and reported mileages of 80,000 miles and above.

Michelin LTX M/S are great tires in my experience, on two different non-Sprinter vehicles.

Today my 2007 Sprinter Cargo van uses Michelin LTX AT/2s. I didn't like the ATs as much as the M/S, but I do like the AT/2s more than the MS and far better than the stock Continental tires that came with my Sprinter.

Sprinter-Source forum members discussed my review here (http://sprinter-source.com/forum/showthread.php?p=22056).

Only reason I asked about wheel sizes is that with 15" wheels the options for tires are considerably diminished.

I'm still running the Michelins that came with the van (29,000 miles) and have no complaints about any aspect of operation.... I haven't been in snow or ice.
