Michelin, a company that makes tires for nearly every type of vehicle from tractors to airplanes, recently announced the release of the new Defender LTX M/S. Michelin says the new tire is ideal for the outdoorsman whose trail often leads beyond the pavement.

undefinedBuilt with Michelin's EverTread compound for improved wear on and off-road, the Defender LTX M/S tires meet the needs of today’s higher-torque trucks and SUV’s by providing a longer tread life and superior performance even in tough conditions.

"The Michelin Defender LTX M/S was created to better address the size and power needs of today's trucks and SUVs, giving drivers what they want — a combination of durability and longevity year-round—without sacrificing safety and performance," said Scott Clark, chief operating officer of Michelin North America's passenger and light-truck tire division. "As vehicles evolve, we must develop tires that match their powertrain performance, resulting in a tire that is stronger and lasts longer, even in tough conditions."

Defender LTX M/S tires are offered with a 50,000‒70,000-mile warranty. The Defender LTX M/S is now available to consumers across North America through more than 10,000 authorized dealer locations, in 71 sizes ranging from 15-inch to 22-inch rim diameters, with 45 fitments available in 2015 and 26 fitments arriving in 2016.

MSRP's start at $130.
