“The Michelin Defender LTX M/S was created to better address the size and power needs of today’s trucks and SUVs, giving drivers what they want — a combination of durability and longevity year-round — without sacrificing safety and performance,” said Scott Clark, chief operating officer of Michelin North America’s passenger and light-truck tire division. “As vehicles evolve, we must develop tires that match their powertrain performance, resulting in a tire that is stronger and lasts longer, even in tough conditions.”

According to Michelin, benefits of the tires include:

  • Stronger, advanced compounds hold up to tougher conditions longer;
  • Better wear without losing all-season performance (wet traction, snow traction, rolling resistance);
  • Meets the high-torque demands of modern trucks; and
  • 50K –70K mile warranty.
