Nice, looks good. So smooth and quiet riding. Do they soak up bumps and uneven pavment well, soft riding tire? Or are they a stiffer feel on bumps. Did they balance ok no vibration at highway speeds? They look good in want a set

Re: MICHELIN LTX M/S in 265/50R20

I want to swap out the Latitudes that come on my 2015 Overland 4X4 with something that is good on dry roads, wet roads, modest snow, some mud and gravel/dirt off roading.

I am looking at the Defender MS as one of my options. What do you guys think? Other suggestions?

Most of my driving is in the desert SW but we go into the mountains during winter but not very often..mostly highway and low impact (I hope) off road stuff.

Yes defender ltx m/s is a good choice in an all around tire that captures a little bit of everything. Good highway manners and OK snow and off road performance. There are better purpose built tires but for one the captures a little of each this is a good choice. Usually when you have a tire that is decent on snow or off road you end up with a noisey tire on the highway. Few can say they do an acceptable job on each but this tire comes closers than any I think.

Re: MICHELIN LTX M/S in 265/50R20

So I've had the Defenders in 265/50-20 for about a month now. My main gripe with the Goodyear Forteras were Snow and as I found out, wear. I thought they were smooth and quiet on the road. Wet traction wasn't bad either. But they sucked in snow and wore out quick.

I would say the Defenders are equally as smooth and quiet and soak up bumps as much as a 265/50-20r can. Wet traction is good! I've driven in moderate to heavy rain with good confidence. I expect they will last a lot longer than the Forteras, but time will tell. If I get 55-y60k out of them, I will be happy happy happy. Now that winter is approaching (East Coast), this will be a true test. Defender compound is made to last longer but I am hoping they have decent grip in hard packed to deep snow, again time will tell. I also do some beach driving in NC, not sure how they will hold up in sand but will find out next summer.
