Technology & Benefits of Michelin Defender Tires

Michelin Defender tires help your vehicle respond as quickly as possibly every time you turn the steering wheel. The all-season tread pattern of the Michelin Defender tires can enhance your handling all year round, not only when conditions are ideal.
Think of all the places you could get to if you drove for 90,000 miles. That's several years' worth of driving. Every Michelin Defender tire comes with a 90,000-mile limited warranty. How did Michelin come up with that number for the warranty? That's how long their Defender tires are expected to last. Fit your vehicle with a set of these tires and you'll be able to enjoy all of their benefits for years to come.
Michelin Defender tires help you save money because they're able to last for so long, but that's not the only way. They can also help your vehicle get the most mileage out of every gallon of gas. They're designed with Michelin's Green X Technology, which reduces their rolling resistance. Low rolling resistance makes it easier for your wheels to turn, which requires less energy from your vehicle's engine. Less energy means less fuel and lower fuel costs.
