Defender T+H

Sold out

The Defender T+H tire is Michelin's Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of coupes, family sedans, minivans and small crossover vehicles looking for a long-lasting, comfortable tire that delivers all-season traction in the dry, wet and light snow.Defender T+H tires utilize a new, all-season tread compound focused on improving durability and longevity compared to the previous-generation Defender. The asymmetric pattern is designed for smooth and quiet operation and utilizes Michelin's IntelliSipe technology of zigzag sipes that interlock below the surface, increasing tread block rigidity while also optimizing the tire's contact with the road. The new generation compound features a high silica content to aid wet traction, and lateral notches and circumferential grooves effectively channel water away from the footprint to reduce the risk of hydroplaning. The independent tread blocks and zigzag sipes together create the necessary biting edges for traction on slippery surfaces encountered during winter months, including light snow.Internally, two wide steel belts are reinforced by a single ply of polyamide to stabilize the tread, improving steering response and tire life. The two-ply body casing is constructed of polyester cord to balance durability and ride comfort.*Specific sizes utilizing Michelin Total Performance eco-focused manufacturing methods are identified as such on the Sizes tab, as well as on the tire's Specs tab.
