If you can find them. The Michelin defenders are a great choice. Better ride than cross climate

The new Michelin Agilis are a fabulous choice and snow flake certified/branded/labeled.

We just extensively went dine this path, my only regret is I didn’t do as Hein did successfully (went with 235 size

Looking at your rims you have 6” which is an unusual size for the sprinter standard is 5.5” and 235 are not recommended on 5.5”.

Teamaron,

I'm arriving late to the party, but wanted to weigh in for I feel pretty strongly about the ride quality and driving confidence my switching to these Michelin's provided me...see post.

We live in the south so not really concerned about winter driving. Also had to replace 2 front tires already since previous owner never rotated them and then we rotated rear set to front and put new ones on passenger rear, but not overly happy with them.
Any update on Interstate tires. TireRack is showing BRIDGESTONE DURAVIS R500 HDs
as a preferred selection. Anyone have experience with these? Or are the Mich LTXs still the go to replacement tire for AIs? Mine is a 2013 still rolling with original Conti's approaching 48k miles.

Tire Rack recommends BRIDGESTONE DURAVIS R500 HDs in the 215/85 R 16s. Anyone out there try these yet?

The Michelin Agilis is an exceptional tire for the Interstate as mentioned above.

You might find a cheaper tire out there...but it’s hard to imagine finding a better tire. At least that’s been our experience. Great ride, solid traction and handling, and very quiet.

The original Conti's on my 2013 Interstate were is sad shape after 31,000 miles and one inner dual failure on the road. So I went with Michelin LTXs in 2014 in preparation for trip to Alaska.

I replaced my Michelin LTXs last fall after they had 90,000 miles with the new Michelin Agilis CrossClimate LT tires. The LTXs still had usable tread life, but were showing signs of sidewall cracking. The new Agilis tires ride as smooth and quiet as the old LTXs did originally. IMO you can't go wrong with Michelin Agilis tires as replacements on your Interstate.

Recently had 215/85 R16 Michelin Agilis CrossClimate tires installed in our van. Too early to really know how we like them but the initial impression is good. The Michelin was less expensive than Continental but we chose them because of good reviews/comments on Air Forums as well as other online resources. We've used Michelin M/S on our 3/4 ton Suburban in the past and on other vehicles and we've always been pleased. Time will tell.
