In my previous post regarding the the Michelin Premiers I have repeated that due to the low tread depth, is not advisable for deep snow until more reviews covering this particular item.
Best for now.
You know i noticed that thin tread depth on the priemiers also. I bought the Defender LTX MS last weekend so i was comparing when shopping. Priemiers are 8.5/32 and the Defenders are 12/32, a fairly decent difference. Thin tread may help in the priemers handling a bit but extreme handlung is not really in the GCs intent as a vehicle. I found the Defenders corner decent and far better than those mushy Forteras rolling around turns. Premier and Defender are both great tires and highly rated just a little different missions.
