Uncompromising Safety for Family Vehicles
A dependable all-season tire with a proven safety record trusted by drivers of all types of sedans, hatchbacks and minivans. Tests show it stops up to 31 feet sooner on wet surfaces than leading competitor tires. Experience confident handling with Michelin’s IntelliSipe technology that maximizes grip and helps prevent hydroplaning. These tires are specifically designed for high-performance long-term use on a range of family vehicles, from hatchbacks and sedans to minivans. Rideshare and taxi drivers also love them for their reliability. Some popular models customers buy them for are Buick LaCrosse, Chevrolet Equinox/Malibu, Chrysler Town & Country, Ford Focus, Honda Odyssey/CR V, Nissan Altima, Toyota Sienna and the Subaru Forester.

Built For High-Quality Performance And Versatility
The tried-and-true Michelin Defender T+H is designed to outperform the leading tires in its class. A dual T and H speed rating covers a wider range of vehicles and driving needs. Outstanding wearability plus excellent tread block rigidity means you can rack up the miles with total peace of mind. T and H represent the tire’s speed rating. Every tire is engineered to meet a specific maximum speed capability (not to be confused with a recommended top speed). For the Michelin Defender T+H, the T stands for a maximum speed of 118 mph, and the H indicates 130 mph. This tire spans the official applications for two classes of vehicles, so it is suitable for family sedans and vans as well as sport sedans and coupes.

Fuel Efficiency Meets Maximum Value
Not only is the Michelin Defender T+H the longest-lasting tire of leading competitor tires, it’s also one of the most fuel-efficient. It features MaxTouch Construction that evenly distributes contact force for extended life. EverTread Compound provides exceptional durability for improved tread wear. Better overall value meets better gas mileage. Since all-season tires provide excellent rolling resistance, they offer better fuel economy than other types of tires. This Michelin tire has consistently proved to provide even more impressive gas mileage since it first came on the market 20 years ago. Plus, it is backed by Michelin’s longest mileage warranty of 80,000 miles, so it is a seriously smart investment.

Less Noise And Vibration, More Comfort And Control
First introduced 20 years ago, the Michelin Defender T+H All-Season tire always knows what today’s families want. Michelin Comfort Control Technology gives it superior rolling resistance for whisper-quiet handling and smooth low-vibration rides. Smooth cornering, braking and cruising.
