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.

Recently purchased a new set of Michelin Defender LTX tires for my 2012 Toyota Rav4. Was impressed with the overall service and warranty available with the purchase.
Have noticed a much smoother ride with the new tires and improved fuel efficiency.
Overall very happy with the service provided by Kaltire.

I switched from a terrible set of Nokian entyres 2.0 that were louder than my winter tires! These Michelin’s are like driving on a cloud compared to them. Feel so much smoother! I put quite a few miles on my tires so this is my third set in 6 years and really hoping these hold up. Always late to the game changing my winter tires so i am hoping these will perform well in the first snowfall.
