An evolution of the long-time consumer favorite, the MICHELIN LTX M/S2, the DEFENDER LTX M/S with EverTread combines durable tread life and all-weather traction in a single tire that is designed to better meet the higher-torque demands of modern vehicles. Most light and heavy duty trucks produce twice as much torque as they did 20 years ago and some models produce nearly three times more torque. With the EverTread compound, the DEFENDER LTX M/S tire lasts 10 percent longer in severe conditions than its predecessor.

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.

DEFENDER LTX M/S tires are offered with a 50,000?70,000-mile warranty. The DEFENDER LTX M/S is now available to consumers across North America through more than 10,000 authorized dealer locations, in 71 sizes ranging from 15-inch to 22-inch rim diameters, with 45 fitments available in 2015 and 26 fitments arriving in 2016.

I have had many different LTX models on trucks over the years and loved them, however these Defender LTX M-S are close to terrifying in wet or snowy conditions. Tires have about 25k on them now and I seem to always loose traction in corners in even the slightest of damp drives. Or the backend kicks out on a straight road when hitting snow drifts. In summer, I have been stuck on slightly damp grass on a 4deg angle when in 2wd. I will never get these on any future vehicle

Purchased four tires ($1000+) from my GM Buick Dealer based mostly on the $70 rebate. After purchase, Michelin refused the rebate citing "not an authorized dealer". Had I known my GM dealer, who sells new Michelin tires, was not an authorized dealer, I would have purchased the Goodyear tires. Bait and switch or just plain fraud? Never again buy Michelin. Cant be trusted.

I bought these to replace OEM Firestones that were terribly hard riding and had very poor traction. The difference is like night and day. These Michelins are everything I hoped they would be; smooth, quiet and traction on all surfaces. I look forward to pulling my fifth wheel on these tires.
