New Vans and Light Sport Utility Vehicles

Each year, manufacturers keep improving. The market changes and vehicles become more and more sophisticated. The electronics evolve, the traction control systems are more and more effective, the engines are better performing, and that’s not all. That’s why it becomes necessary to make a choice that will live up to expectations. Without further delay, I present the new vans and light sport utility vehicles that attracted my attention.

4 new tires in 2 different categories of use!

SUV and light trucks:

Pneu Michelin Premier LTX

Michelin Premier LTX:

Replacing the Latitude Tour and the Tour Hp, the Michelin Premier Ltx is before all else a top of the line, safety- and quality-centric tire. It is part of the Premier family of products that include Evergrip technology. Here we have emerging and expandable grooves. In fact, Michelin has hidden the grooves in the rubber, which makes them show more the tire is used, and adds grip on slippery road conditions and water discharge. Once again, we’re talking about one of the best and most comfortable tires on the market.

Pneu Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015

Yokohama Geolandar AT G015:

Approved for winter, with a versatile sole design that can be used both on the road and on the trail, the new Yokohama will match a consumer who wants a tire with style but not too noisy to drive. We can also note that they have added a more aggressive design on the side of the tire to give it an all-terrain look. It is currently available in 58 sizes, and is a top-of-the-line product offered by Yokohama.

Pneu General Grabber hts60

General Grabber HTS-60:

This superior quality product is at the same time rather linear when we look at its sole design. In my opinion, it will be pretty nice and comfortable on the road because of the Comfort Balance technology. In fact, an absorbent cushion has been inserted to isolate irregularities of the road. With a 105,000 km guarantee and a 45-day trial period, this product will certainly have great success since its price is very competitive.

Commercial van tires:

Pneu Michelin Defender LTX M/S

Michelin Defender LTX M/S:

At Michelin, the Defender is synonymous with durability. Certainly one of the most expensive at purchase, but more cost-effective in the long term, the Michelin Defender LTX M/S will satisfy you. The Evertread composite is made such that the tread will last longer in more difficult conditions. Plus, they have improved resistance to disintegration and to cuts with this new generation. Available in 71 sizes, I strongly recommend it for consumers who work hard with their vehicle.
