    Where can I find Michelin Defender tires ? I feel I have looked everywhere and can't find them. I'm in New Bern, NC and it seems like no one cares this brand .

    What size are you looking for? A quick google search says walmart and sams club both carry them.

    I was to go with factory size 205/75/15 but I am currently using 225/75/15 because that's what came on the truck when I bought it so either will do

    Or order off the internet and have a tire shop install them.

    If you order online, you can likely find free shipping as well from many of the sites you may purchase from...

    I'll also add Tirebuyer.com to the list. I got free shipping from them when I ordered my tires.

    My door jam says 225/75R15 P rated on 6 inch rim, but I've been driving Michelin 235/75R15 since the day one. The speedo was still off showing 65 when GPS showes 62. While 235 is bigger than stock, the ride is "softer" than smaller tires. Now I got 30/9.5R15 (BFG KO2) and it is even better (but I lost about 1mpg over Michelin P-size).

    I was getting my Michelin from different places: Costco, Walmart, Tire shop whoever was running promotion at the time. For BFG at the time I needed them there were no good on-line promotions and local American Tires had the best deal. Just shop around.
