Michelin’s New Light Truck Tire the Defender LTX

The newest tire in Michelin North America Inc.’s fleet isn’t designed to be an original equipment star. But that’s not to say the tire manufacturer isn’t expecting big things from the Defender LTX M/S. Michelin believes the Defender LTX is destined to become its top selling light truck tire — in part because it’s replacing the company’s current No. 1 LT tire.

The Defender LTX is a light truck product that comes from melding the long-lasting traits of Michelin’s successful three-year-old Defender passenger line with its most popular light truck tire, the LTX M/S2. Using the tread pattern and depth of the LTX M/S2, amping it up with Evertread compounding, and ensuring the long-lasting wear of the Defender line, the new Defender LTX offers the best of all worlds.

Michelin is marketing the Defender LTX as the answer to that complaint with two key words: “Stronger. Longer.” Peters says the company’s test data shows the new compound alone extends this tire’s life by 10% compared to the LTX M/S2.

The LT sizes carry a 50,000-mile warranty, and that’s less coverage than the current LTX M/S2 offers. Roll out of the first 45 sizes of the Defender LTX begins Aug. 1 and will continue through November in the United States. The next 26 sizes are coming in June 2016.
