All-around performance and durability meet in Michelin's Defender LTX M/S 3-season truck tire. Our independent road testing found that the Defender not only steers better than most truck tires, but its symmetrical design with four deep circumferential grooves offers incredible hydroplane resistance. Factor in a quiet ride, exceptional braking performance on wet and dry roads, and the ability to tackle light winter conditions, and Michelin's Defender LTX M/S is a confident and reliable tire with an impressive 115,000km warranty.

?Summer vs Winter Tests

BRAKING

We varied our approach speeds by driving surface and by season for two reasons. First, this represents how most Canadians would normally drive on that surface in each season. Second, testing in both seasons provides an indication of how a tire's performance will be affected by road temperature.

CORNERING

To understand how road surface temperatures affect the cornering performance of a tire, our cornering tests are completed in both summer conditions (dry and wet pavement, and gravel roads) and winter conditions (dry, wet and icy pavement). Please note that slush is also tested but completed in a specific slush cornering test..

?Independent & Objective Testing

The independent tire testers conducted extensive tests to determine how the tires in our core line-up perform in a range of conditions in both summer and winter. To maintain neutrality, no driver knew the specifics of the tires they were testing each time. All results were analyzed and processed by the testing group and then provided to Kal Tire for sharing with our customers.

I immediately noticed the ride quality and the noise level these tires made upgraded after installation. I felt like I was driving a different vehicle. I did not know just changing tires can make this much difference. Strongly recommend!

Kal tire has been my go to tire shop for a few years now. The service is courteous, prompt and the reps are very knowledgeable. Last winter the service rep suggested I try the Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 tire and they were easily the best winter tires I have ever had!
