The Michelin Defender T+H is a touring all season tire manufactured for passenger vehicles. Michelin offers an 80,000 mile treadwear warranty with this model.
The tire offers excellent all weather traction and the zigzag sipes of the Intellisipe Technology grip the road remarkable in dry, wet and winter conditions. The silica-based compound further enhances the all season performing ability. The circumferential and lateral tread grooves increase the wet weather traction and avoid dangerous hydroplaning situations by eliminating water and slush from beneath the tire footprint. A safer driving experience is guaranteed all year thanks to the tire’s compound and tread design.
The model’s MaxTouch Construction and its Evertread compound combined offer a longer lasting tread life. The MaxTouch Construction optimizes the tread pattern and tire footprint to ensure that the driving pressure is equally spread out across the tread area. This even distribution of the force of acceleration, cornering and braking avoid uneven tread patterns from forming on the tread area. The Evertread compound is an advanced, stronger tire compound that slows down the tread wear rate. The longer lasting tread and even wear enable the tire to be used for a longer period of time and extend its life.
The ComfortControl technology guarantees a comfortable and quiet driving experience. The computer optimized tread pattern and the precision manufacturing ensure that the road noise and vibrations will not be noticeable in the vehicle’s cabin. The optimized sequence tread design negates the road and pattern noise generated when the tires are in motion. The special manufacture ensures that the tire follows the road surface closely, which reduces the possibility of road vibrations being felt by the passengers. The decreased road noise and vibration levels offer an enjoyable drive.
The model is very fuel efficient. The silica-based tire compound lowers the tire’s rolling resistance. The rolling resistance determines how much energy the vehicle needs to use up to maintain the tires in motion. The lower the rolling resistance the less energy is needs. The decreased rolling resistance ensures a lowered fuel consumption and CO2 emissions on part of the vehicle, which makes the tire more cost efficient and environmentally friendly.
The Defender T+H was manufactured with the Total Performance Technology. This ensures a safe, durable and fuel efficient drive, while not sacrificing its performing capability.
