I recently put these on my 2015 Grand Cherokee and so far, they are great. Prior to these, I had the Latitude Tours, which I loved. These have a more aggressive looking tread pattern, and initially, I was a bit concerned they would have increased road noise, or compromise the comfort of the ride, but I have to say I am impressed - they are as good in those respects as the Latitude. These appear to be a more capable tire in snow and mud and I am looking forward to taking them through a Minnesota Winter. Recommmended!

About This Item
Michelin Defender LTX M/S Highway Tire
The LTX M/S delivers excellent All-Season traction, predictable handling, and long-lasting wear.
Michelin's Highway All-Season light truck tire, the Defender LTX M/S combines long tread life with all-season potential for vans, pickups and sport utility vehicles. (The LTX M/S is also recommended for shuttles, commercial vans, and chassis cab vehicles using heavy-duty/light-truck sizes.) It blends a smooth, quiet ride with year-round traction in wet, dry, and wintry conditions including light snow.
The new Defender LTX M/S improves upon the popular Michelin LTX M/S2. They both share the same highly functional tread pattern, while offering improvements in wear life/longevity to better meet the demands of modern trucks. However, the Defender LTX M/S is designed to be stronger for an extended amount of time.
Featuring Michelin?s Evertread compound, the Defender LTX M/S tires feature an advanced compound that effectively resists wear and tear, even when exposed to heavy loads and severe road conditions. The molded compound of symmetric tread design features stable independent tread blocks with high-density 3-D Active Sipes delivering all-season traction on dry roads as well as in tempestuous weather. Wide circumferential channels, open shoulder slots, and multiple lateral grooves gives water expulsion to improve wet traction and stopping performance. The tire features Michelin's MaxTouch Construction that enables a contact patch to promote reliable traction and long wear.
An All-Season tire designed for light duty pickups and SUVs.

I have an SUV and was worried about hydroplaning and stopping. These tires do exactly as promised. And I was told that because of the design they don't need to be replaced until tread is 2/32. Mine are in need of replacement right now, but still seem to stop as well as when they were new. I haven't gotten 60,000 miles, though. I am buying them again.
EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT TIRE !!!
These are the best all season tires I've owned! have had them on my F150 for 2 years now and still have plenty of tread - Amazing traction in the Colorado snow/ice! I also tow a trailer and they are sturdy built tires! I don't understand how anyone can complain of these being a noisy tire in the reviews that I read. They are an extremely quite and comfortable ride even at 80psi when towing (275/70/18 E 10ply tires) Would buy them again!
New tires, let's roll..
Just replaced Yokohama tires with 64,000 on tires, dealers mentioned that they no longer carry them so he suggested the Michelins Defender LTX MS for my suburban. Now let's see how they perform on the highway, pulling cars to shows in this desert climate. Looks nice brings back that OEM look to the unit.
Now had a fair experience with prior warranty on tread life, let's see how this round goes..
