During our recent test of the Michelin Defender, I came away impressed with how the tire performed. Driving in wet conditions on our test track, I found the steering and cornering response to be very crisp. The IntelliSipe Technology helps provide a connected feel to the road and also the additional biting edges enhance all-season traction in rain and light snow.
Michelin Green X technology allows drivers to gain additional fuel efficiency while maintaining all-weather traction. This tire features an asymmetric tread design, allowing cross rotation (C) to help promote even wear.
MaxTouch Construction optimizes the stresses experienced when the tire's footprint comes in contact with the road to promote predictable handling, even wear and long treadlife. Its internal structure combines twin steel belts with a polyester cord body.
