I chose the Defender over the Premier due to its amazing snow capability and descent off-road ability for a street tire.

Re: MICHELIN Premier LTX

Put Defender LTX M/S on today after 55,000 miles on the Latitude Tours. Way too early to provide a review, however everything I read about these tires has been positive.

Re: MICHELIN Premier LTX

I have about 3,500 miles on a set of Premier LTXs. I was between them and the Scorpion Verdes. Went with the Michelins due to reputation and it being carried by the best local tire shop. I find they handle noticeably better. As others have said they are outstanding in wet conditions. I remember hitting a puddle going 75 on the highway a week after I had them put on. Powered right through the hydro plan and the tires kept me in control. In the fortress that would have been a much shakier experience.

Re: MICHELIN Premier LTX

I will be needing tires next year so I am just poking around. What are you guys paying for a set of LTX's?

Re: MICHELIN Premier LTX

I just purchased a set of Micheline DEFENDER LTX 265/50R20. I'll have them installed next week. I looked at Tire rack and Costco with Executive membership with tax and everything came to $889.42. These are the newest and highly rated 70K mile tires.

Same here had the Defenders put on few weeks ago, excellent tire and offers a good mix. Smooth, quiet and a bit deeper tread depth than the Premiers, premiers have 8.5/32 and Defenders have 12/32. Both great tires, Premier is more of an on road cruiser and Defender is also good on road manors but ok off the beaten path a little also.

Best price I've gotten so far was at Tire Kingdom OTD $1098.00 for MICHELIN Premier LTX P265/60R18

From my understanding the Defender LTX M/S and the Premier LTX are similar tires, but the Premier has more of a focus on ride comfort and is intended for SUV/Crossover vehicles, while the Defender LTX M/S is more of a light truck tire with an emphasis on mud and snow performance.

I paid - $840 (before tax and alignment) for 4 Michelin Defender LTX tires (265 60 R18) including $60 of installation. Pricing from BJ's Wholesale club.

Re: MICHELIN Premier LTX

And I use to think paying 600 for my last car tires were expensive!

That's if you jeep came with 18" wheels, if it has 20"s plan on paying a few hundred more.

Recently saw an old (early 1950's) picture of a service station. Sign, "Tires, 4 for $20".
