Michelin unveils Defender all-season tire

Aug. 17, 2015

Michelin has taken the wraps off a new all-season light truck and SUV tire.

The Defender LTX M/S tire is especially suited for commercial applications where trailer hauling is a necessity, or driving to and from construction sites is part of the job.

The tire has been designed to handle heavy, high-torque requirements and at the same time provide a long-lasting, durable tire. It features Michelin’s Evertread technology and is built with advanced compounds to hold up under conditions such as snow and ice.

The Defender LTX M/S comes with a 50,000 to 70,000 mi. warranty.
