Legal mentions

(1) While all-season tires are designed to provide reliable performance in moderate winter conditions, the use of four winter tires is recommended for optimal performance and may be mandatory in certain jurisdictions.

 

(2) Based on third-party tread wear tests using the MICHELIN® Defender® LTX™ M/S™ tire versus MICHELIN® LTX™ M/S™2 tire using size LT265/70R17 121/118R tires. Actual on-road results may vary.

 

(3) Based on internal wet braking tests from 50 MPH using a 2011 Ford F-150 versus the following competitors. Actual on-road results may vary. Average wet stopping distance: MICHELIN® Defender® LTX® M/S : 265/70R17 115T : 136.5 ft, Bridgestone® Dueler™ H/L Alenza Plus : P265/70R17 113T : 163.0 ft, Firestone® Destination™ LE2 : P265/70R17 113T : 144.5 ft, Goodyear® Wrangler SR-A® : P265/70R17 113R : 170.7 ft

 

(4) Based on internal rolling resistance tests versus Goodyear® Wrangler SR-A®; using the MICHELIN® Defender® LTX™ M/S™ tire; in size LT265/70R17 121/118R. Actual on-road results may vary.

 

Government UTQG Ratings do not apply to light truck sized tires.
XL = Extra Load

>> The sizes shown are average design values for tires measured on specified measuring rim widths. Some tires may vary from this value by +/-3% of the section height (affecting overall diameter), and +/-4% of the section width.
>> Section width varies approximately 0.2" (5mm) for every 0.5" change in rim width.
>> Tread patterns are often tuned to accomodate different tire widths. Tires for a particular dimension of a given tireline may vary in appearance from the tire shown in the photograph.

WARNING: Serious or fatal injury may result from tire failure due to underinflation or overloading. To ensure correct air pressure and vehicle load, refer to vehicle owner's manual or tire information placard on the vehicle. Serious injury or death may result from explosion of tire/rim assembly due to improper mounting. Only tire professionals should mount tires and they should never inflate beyond 40 psi to seat the beads. Before mixing types of tires in any configuration on any vehicle, be sure to check the vehicle owner's manual for its recommendations.

IMPORTANT: While all-season tires are designed to provide reliable performance in moderate winter conditions, the use of four (4) tires is recommended for optimal preformance and may be mandatory in certain jurisdictions.

DANGER: Never mount a 15" diameter tire on a 15.5" rim.
DANGER: Never mount a 16" diameter tire on a 16.5" rim.
DANGER: Never mount a 17" diameter tire on a 17.5" rim.
DANGER: Never mount a 19" diameter tire on a 19.5" rim.
DANGER: Never mount a 22" diameter tire on a 22.5" rim.

Inflation pressure increase must not exceed the maximum pressure branded on the tire sidewall. When a customer requests a replacement tire with a lower speed rating than the original equipment tire, you must clearly communicate to him or her that the handling of the vehicle may be different, and that its maximum speed capability is limited to that of the lowest speed-rated tire on the vehicle. Exceeding the lawful speed limit is neither recommended nor endorsed.

For high-speed driving, additional inflation pressure and possibly reduced tire loading and/or upsizing is required. In the absence of specific recommendations by the vehicle manufacturer, use the following guidelines based on those in the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organization Standards Manual.

For speeds over 160km/h (100 mph), load and inflation must be adjusted according to the table below.

T-Speed Rated Sizes:
Maximum Speed (km/h) 160 170 180 190
Inflation Increase (psi) 0.0 1.0 2.0 3.0
Load Capacity (% of max.) 100 100 100 100

H-Speed Rated Sizes:
Maximum Speed (km/h) 160 170 180 190 200 209
Inflation Increase (psi) 0.0 1.0 2.0 3.0 4.0 5.0
Load Capacity (% of max.) 100 100 100 100 100 100
