Driving Impressions. Michelin Defender LTX M/S

Posted by: Bernard Winkelmann onSeptember 26th, 2015


Michelin invited beyond.ca to the beautiful New England State of Vermont. We were hosted by the awesome team from Michelin Canada and Michelin USA. They brought their tire engineers, product managers, regional managers and public relations folks to introduce us to Michelin’s newest truck tire offering, the Michelin Defender LTX M/S.

In a previous article, I explained the rationale behind the new Michelin Defender LTX M/S. It’s now time to talk about what it is like to drive with these fine tires from Michelin.

The day after the presentation, we were up bright and early and headed out on the road toward the 4×4 Center in Bolton, Vermont. We took the scenic route in order to test the on-road mannerisms of the tire. This included secondary twisty highways and graded gravel roads. Michelin brought a number of different vehicles including Jeep Grand Cherokees, Ford F350s and Jeep Wranglers Unlimited in Rubicon trim.
