Rebate Tips
1. Read your Pep Boys rebate form thoroughly. Each Pep Boys rebate offer is unique, with different date ranges and postmark date requirements. Many rebates require the purchase of multiple products. You must submit all qualifying products listed for a given rebate to be eligible. The best way to make sure you get your rebate is to follow the instructions carefully. If you have any questions, call us at the toll-free number listed on the rebate form or call your local Pep Boys store.

2. Make copies of all of your paperwork. This includes your receipt, rebate form, mailing envelope, and any other items that are needed for validation of your rebate. If for some reason your submission gets lost in the mail, you will need this information to have your rebate reprocessed. It is also a good idea to have this information in front of you if you need to call the customer service phone number listed on your rebate form.

3. Don't wait. Many Pep Boys rebates require your rebate submission to be postmarked within a set number of days from your date of purchase. If you miss this deadline, you will not be able to receive your rebate.

4. Clearly write your name and address on the rebate form. If your handwriting is difficult to read, it will be difficult to enter your information correctly. To ensure fast, accurate processing of your rebate, be sure to print clearly.

Road Hazard Warranty

Protect Your Investment
What will our Road Hazard Warranty do for you?

Pep Boys will follow its Puncture Repair Procedures to determine if your tire should be repaired, at no expense, or replaced under this coverage. While the repair cost is free, there will be a charge for re-balancing a repaired tire.

Road Hazard Warranty can save you the expense of tire replacement. If your Pep Boys tire becomes unusable due to a road hazard related mishap and cannot be repaired, we will, subject to pro-rated adjustment based upon the remaining usable tread on the tire, replace the unusable tire or give you a refund. While Pep Boys will remount the tire for free, there will be a cost for re-balancing the replacement tire.

Coverage extends to such damage as unrepairable tread punctures damage from potholes, nails, glass and jagged metal which cause cuts, snags, punctures, impact breaks, bruises and rim cuts.

Length Of Coverage
Coverage with Road Hazard Warranty extends for the full period of the mileage of the tire. This coverage is not transferable to a new owner, or if the owner mounts the tires on another vehicle.Close [x]

Core Charge

A "Core Charge" is similar to the deposit you might pay for a can or bottle of soda. In many states, to promote recycling, you are charged a deposit when you purchase a can of soda and you receive your deposit back when you return the empty can. Many automotive parts have a Core Charge, or Core Price, that works the same way as a soda can deposit.

Here's how the Core Charge works:
  • The part you are purchasing contains a component that is recyclable
  • The Core Charge deposit is charged at the time of purchase
  • When the recyclable component from your old part is returned to us, the charge is refunded to you
  • To receive your Core Charge refund, you can do either of the following:
  • Bring the part to any Pep Boys store along with your receipt or invoice (recommended)
  • Mail the part back to Pep Boys through the online return process
  • Please see our Returns Policy for more information on returning a core item.
Core Charges are often mandated by state legislature, and, as such, the actual core charge and taxes on the charge may vary depending on the state in which you buy your part. The Pep Boys core charge presented to you online today with your item is representative of the most common core charge. If you have any questions, please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-PEP-BOYS (737-2697) or visit any Pep Boys store. Close [x]

Speed Rating
Load Index
Load Range


Safety Rating is a combination of two values: Load Index and Speed Rating for P-Metric and Euro Metric tire sizes; and Load Range and Speed Rating in the case of heavy duty LT (light truck) sizes.

Speed Rating is based on the speed that the tire is designed to be driven at for extended periods of time. All tires in the in the U.S. are designed to maintain legal U.S. speed limits. The speed rating of tires must match the maximum driving speed of the vehicle.

Load Index is used on P metric and Euro Metric sized tires and denotes a tire's load-carrying capacity at a specified inflation pressure. The load index is represented by a number, the higher the Load Index Value the greater the load the tire can safely carry. Vehicle manufacturers recommend a maximum load capacity based on a recommended minimum load index.

Tire Class


Tire Class reflects how the tire will be used. There are four major categories: All-Season, Max Performance, Summer-Only and Winter-Use.

All-Season tires are suitable for year-round driving in all weather conditions.

Summer-Only & Max Performance tires are specifically designed for high-performance driving. Tire compound, tread design and speed ratings all combine to hug the road and maintain grip. Summer tires by nature are not ideal for winter driving due to lack of siding to grip winter roads.

Winter-Use tires have tread compounds and patterns that are specially designed for grip on snowy or icy road surfaces. They are not suitable for year-round use. The rubber compound used will wear more quickly on dry, summer roads. It is recommended that winter tires are fitted as a complete set to avoid potential handling issues.
Everday Use
All Season



Tread Type


Tread Type is an important consideration when choosing a tire. There are four main types: Passenger, Highway, All-Terrain and Mud-Terrain.

Passenger denotes a tread that is suitable for normal use, a good all-round tread for normal driving.

Highway is a tread type unique to SUV and truck tires. The tread is optimized for normal everyday driving on paved surfaces. These tires can be driven off pavement, but are not ideally suited for off road traction. Highway tread patterns deliver a quiet ride.

For light trucks and specialty vehicles, All-Terrain tread types provide better off-road traction than standard highway truck tires. There more aggressive tread tends to be less quiet on paved roads. All Terrain tires are suitable for everyday use.

Mud-Terrain treads are specifically designed with wider tread blocks and higher void ratios to gain traction in off-road conditions. Mud Terrain tires can generate higher noise levels and tend to carry lower mileage warranties than other tread designs.

UTQG - Uniform Tire Quality Grade

UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grade) is made up of three values: treadwear, traction and temperature.

Treadwear is a relative numeric score, based on manufacturer tests, showing how well a tire can be expected to wear compared to other tires. A higher score means a tire could be expected to wear better.

Traction measures the tire's ability to stop a vehicle on wet roads. It doesn't reflect a tire's acceleration, cornering, or hydroplaning performance. Traction grades range from AA (highest) to C (lowest).

Temperature grades the tire's ability to withstand heat build-up, with A being the highest grade and C the lowest.

A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 to 115 mph
C - Between 85 to 100 mph
Treadwear: 820
Traction Asphalt - gForce
AA - Above 0.54
A - Above 0.47
B - Above 0.38
C - Less Than 0.38
A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 and 115 mph
C - Between 85 and 100 mph

Drive / Ride Performance Characteristics

All tires have the following six performance characteristics, divided into three sets of trade-offs. In most cases, a tire may perform excellently in one characteristic but only standard in the other.
Standard Ride Comfort & Standard Handling
Handling: Get stiff side wall for precise steering and cornering but settle for a firm ride with increased road noise.
Ride Comfort: Enjoy a quiet, smooth ride but lose some cornering ability.
Standard Treadwear & Standard Traction
Traction: Stop faster in wet conditions but expect a shorter tread life.
Treadwear: Get long, uniform wear across your tread pattern but expect less traction in wet conditions.
Standard Low Rolling Resistance & Standard High Speed Performance
High-Speed Performance: Get increased performance at higher speeds but sacrifice some fuel economy.
Low Rolling Resistance: Enjoy improved fuel efficiency but expect less high-speed cornering ability.

Rated 1 out of 5 Will not last 90,000 miles like the warranty says! I purchased these tires 03/19/13 for our 2009 Honda Civic EX. After putting 53,000 highway miles on them, they are worn down to 3/32" and new tires are needed. I guess that is were they get you with the pro rating of the tire. They will label the tires to be able to go 90,000 miles though they will only last 50,000-60,000 miles under normal wear. I had discount tire balance and rotate my tires every other oil change or 6,000 miles. Sad to see since Michelin is such a great tire company. Buyer be aware before purchasing. September 5, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 It depends on your car.... I gave the defenders an average rating as a combined score. I LOVED these tires right when I got them on my 2004 Ford Focus. The handling is phenomenal. Wet/icy conditions drive like its dry. They still do after 12k miles. However, I am finding that I have severe problems with road noise. It must depend on your car. After about 10K miles of wear on the tires, the noise is pretty much unbearable. It is painful in my ears. It is so loud. You cannot make a phone call - even bluetooth directly in your ear is unable to compensate. I don't have the money to replace them. I spent good money on them. I will switch to a different brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tires I bought a set of these Michelin defender tires for my daughter back in 2013, she commutes to work and now after 20,000 miles on them, they still look almost brand new. We rotate the tires twice a year. The ride is comfortable and not noisy on these great tires from Michelin. I also bought the same tires for my son's car in 2014 and the first week he hit a pot hole and ripped one of the tires but the rest have done so well thus far and he is very happy with them. I am planning to buy Michelin tires for my wife's car next. Thank you Michelin for such great product, An excellent brand name in tires, keep up the good work. Shawn R. August 31, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Disappointed in the Michelin Defender. Lasted 30,000 miles verses 90,000 miles warranty. Didn't expect the tires to last 90,000 miles but did expect the tires to last more than 30,000 miles. Had to replace them.They did prorate them but that's an expense I can't afford. The road noise is really BAD August 25, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by The worst tire I've ever owned The worse tires I have ever owned tread wear is terrible after two years and 50,000 mile tires worn to unsale. One side wall blow out. One belt broke and came out side wall. This all in two years. By the way don't buy NTBs road hazard gaurentee it is worthless by the time they prorate u get nothing August 25, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exactly What I Needed I was looking for a tire that would last long, ride well, and have a name to stand behind it - the Defender offered that. What was even better - the price! Have put nearly 40,000 miles on them and been happy with every mile. August 24, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very Loud I purchase the Defender XT 235/65R16 for My Honda Odyssey. When Ever i start driving on Freeway it seems like a jet is taking off. Very loud. I had Retailer rotate Tire around and it does samething. August 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Passat TDI is a great fit for the Defender When I bought my new 2013 Passat TDI I insisted the dealer remove the cheap OEM tires and I paid for upgraded Michelin Defenders. Right away I could tell they were much quite than the stock tire but my real goal was treadler because I drive 30-35K a year. Here I am now 2 years later with just over 69,000 miles showing and the Defenders are still going with 4/32" thread showing. They have been flawless and when they do finally wear out Ill put another set on too. Good tires may cost a little more but they are a lot safer and they last a lot longer too. August 19, 2015
