Introducing the MICHELIN® DEFENDER® tire. Tire composition and construction help keep you safer, longer.
Silica: Special ingredients like silica add strength to the rubber compound, which provides better rolling resistance and grip, so you stay safer.
Synthetic Fiber: A unique layer of fabric materials help control the forces that impact your tire, so tires adapt as needed on the road.
Steel Belt: Steel belts provide reinforcement to the tread, which controls the shape of the tire footprint, so tires last longer.
Because our sipes are designed to have more zigzags, our tires deliver greater rigidity, which helps them last longer. 3D-Sipes create a thinner tread layer, delivering a lightweight tire with less rolling resistance. This ultimately diminishes the heat on tires, so they last longer while increasing your car's fuel-efficiency. Find out more at michelinman.com/defender
