New Michelin Defenders?

I can get the Defenders in a 235/65R16 and they look good but they are an all terrain passenger tire as opposed to a crossover/suv tire.. Anyone think of any problems with this.

The description starts "The Defender is Michelin’s Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of family cars, minivans and small crossover vehicles"

The Element is a small crossover.

Load range is fine (a bit higher than stock); diameter ok.
