After 71,000 miles of highway driving on my 2014 truck, I opted for the next size up because the tire shop did not have my factory size. The Michelin Defender is a fantastic tire for better traction, ride comfort, road noise and looks. Only time will tell on how long they last. They don't squeal in tight turns or slip on take off from a stop like my factory tires did. I should have ordered the factory size because I immediately noticed a little over 1 mile per gallon drop in mileage because the computer sensed the resistance from the taller tires and is in 8 cylinder mode more often than before.

Tires are usually taken for granted, until the road puts them to the test.
