You're right, it's the LTX, which seems to be the same as the XC LT4 (sold by Sears and mentioned often in the list archives). If it was available in 205 75 R14 I'd buy it...I live on a dirt road and cross a creek everyday and in the winter I can get stuck in the mud easily, so I need that extra width. I have to decide whether to go with the wider XCA or this one, and I haven't been able to find a picture of the XCA to see what kind of tread it has.
