Set 4 and only getting better

By RC Cruiser from United States - All-Season

Excellent tire. Great for holding down cost of long distance commuting. Been driving on Michelin tires for 40 years and they just keep getting better. I don't even look at other brands when replacing and won't buy a new car unless it comes with Michelins. Just took off my last LTX's at 73,000 miles and probably could have gone to 80K before getting to the wear bar but, the rainy season is just around the corner and I really wanted the tread depth back. Used to live up North and these LTX's were great in the snow too. Truly the best all-round tire. And, they're round so, none of the wump wump wump you here with some other brands.

Michelin LTX MS original and Michelin Defender LTX M/S

09/26/2015

5 / 5

By Jimmy from Cranston Rhode Island United States - Toyota Highlander - All-Season

I had the original Michelin LTX MS and now have about 500 miles on the new Defender LTX MS. I think Michelin really got it right with the whole design of this tire. The original LTX is a great beloved tire. It provides good all season traction, a smooth quiet ride and decent tread life. I see the difference to the LTX MS2 and the Defender LTX I am driving is mostly in the outer shoulder block tread design. Its not open so water and slush can evacuate more easily. I like this idea. So far I love the new Defender. My only advice to Michelin and keep a decent tread depth on your tires. For an SUV or truck 11/32 should be the minimum.

Second Try with Michelin

06/05/2017

3 / 5

By RLew from Bel AIr Maryland United States - Ford F-150 - All-Season

I purchased the predecessor (Non Defender) LTX M/S tires about 2.5 years ago. Warranty was for 70,000 miles but I only made it to 47,000 miles and was at or below the wear bars. Tires were rotated and balanced every 7500 miles. I did get credit back for the shortfall in mileage and now have the Defender tires on my truck. Hopefully this time they will make it to the 70K. Pretty disappointed in the fact that my first set of Michelin's did so poorly. Truck is just a daily driver not used for work. Tires performed well but 47K is not even close to the warranty.
