Get technical:

The Michelin Defender is all-season touring tire and features Michelin's MaxTouch construction that enhances road manners by reducing road noises a vibrations. A low rolling resistance design enhances fuel efficiency, and the Defender's silica-based tread compound with mildly asymmetric all-season tread design allows for strong traction and handling performance in dry, wet, and light winter weather conditions. The Defender also features IntelliSipe technology to boost traction as well as deep tread grooves that evacuate water and resist hydroplaning.
