Michelin Defender M/S - Road Noise

Any one running the Michelin Defender Winter tires on your tow vehicle year around, with a report as to road noise vs the all seasons?

I don't think there is a 'winter' tire but just an 'all season' tire. but my tires on my last truck were great for sound.

I have Defenders on my TV, the optional larger size for my truck and they are about as quiet an LT as I have ever owned. They are all season though, not mud and snow (wasn't aware there was a M&S version of Defenders)

Go to the Michelin web site. They give you all of this information.

Thanks everyone. I appreciate your comments. These All Season M & S tires look good to me. I'll have them installed today!

I have them and they are louder than the originals. But, nothing of any concern. The ride is better as well.
