My '17 Silverado 3500 came with Michelins on it. Love them.

I put the defenders on the Wife's truck a little over a year ago, have just under 15 K miles on them so far and love them.

Tread still looks brand new and I expect them to out last the Duelers that came from the factory by a large margin.

They are way quieter, with wet and dry traction that is excellent.

I am very happy with my decision.

Iíve been through 3 sets of these. They are awesome. One set had 103,000 miles on them.

This is an old thread I started and just wanted to update.

The truck now has over 80k on it and the Defenders have over 31k. Tread depth today is approx. 11/32 on them. They are still the quietest, smoothest, even wearing LT tires I've ever had. A super choice for the 2500 and reinforces my faith in Michelin (for vehicles).

Are they snow worthy? I will need a set of tires for my RAM come fall. Michigan winters are a good test for any all season tire. Only have 29k on the OEM Firestone Transforces and getting down to the wear bars. Not very happy with their longevity.

Not a huge fan of them either. I only have just over 20k on the OEM's and they are already almost ready to be replaced. I was not a fan over the past winter with these tires either. I too would like something that is more all season than all terrain, as we typically have quite a bit of snow up here.
