Michelin Defender - All Season Grand Touring tire
  • MaxTouch Construction™ combined with the interlocking action of Michelin's Breakthrough IntelliSipe™ technology delivers impressively long wear life by providing exceptional tread block rigidity while optimizing the tire's contact with the road during acceleration, braking and cornering.
  • Exceptional grip provided by IntelliSipe Technology™ maximizes the number of sipes within the tire, which allows you to brake confidently when you need to most for greater peace of mind in stressful driving situations.
  • The interlocking action of Intellisipes™ creates a more rigid tread block, which allows for a reduced starting tread depth leading to lower rolling resistance so you can save fuel without sacrificing safety or longevity.
  • MICHELIN® GREEN X®
  • Lasts up to 21,000 miles longer than a leading competitor
  • Stops shorter than a leading competitor
  • Can save dollars of fuel.
