Thanks NCPGMC, replacing tires soon and this helped decide on the Defenders now.  Going thru dealer, 4 for 3 and price match.

According to Michelin..."Our Best Just Got Better. The MICHELIN® Defender® LTX® M/S combines the proven tread design of the LTX® M/S2 with Evertread™ compound to provide durable tread life, no matter the season." and "Evertread™ compound helps the MICHELIN® Defender® LTX® M/S last 10% longer in severe conditions than the MICHELIN® LTX® M/S2."

The regular LTX is no longer made, replaced by the Defender LTX.

I'd recommend the Michelin Defender LTX or the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza.

I have never had a set of Michelin's, I have always had good luck with Goodyear's; my brother swears by Michelin's. Personally, I like to buy American so I stick with the few remaining American-owned companies...Price and a good rebate doesn't hurt either :-)

 Continental CrossContact LX20

 

Just looking for a smooth and quiet ride, long life, and max MPG.

The Cross Contact LX20 is the OEM tire on my 2018 Sierra.  It is smooth and quiet, delivers respectable MPG.  However, I've read numerous reviews that report this tire has a short tread life on larger vehicles like the Silverado and Tahoe.  Owners of midsize crossovers seem to be pretty happy though.  I don't think I have more than 10k km on mine yet.  They were not good in snow, so I ran different tires in the winter.

Had Cooper Discoverer on two prior trucks, good price and a really good tire for the 20" rims.

I work for a GM dealer and that is a true statement on both ends. Customers like them, but they do not last longer than about 35-40k, depending on how you drive.

Sold my eagle ls2 OEM tires with 1800 miles for $350.  Got Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S OWL road force balanced as an upgrade.  Great deal.

I’m an at3 guy through and through. 

My old duramax had the at3

My new 1500 has the new LT model in 275/65/18, got them Saturday

wife’s Jeep has the regular at3, got them Saturday, previously had them too. 

 

Great wear, traction, all around great tire. I get them every time I need tires.
