Rated 5 out of 5 by Nancy BEST RIDE EVER!!
These 4 tires are the best Michelins I have had on my vehicle. This is the third set of Michelins, the other two were Hydro Edge, which were excellent as well but did not give the nice ride like these Defenders. The other wonderful difference in these Defender tires is that my minivan handles like it has never handled before in the 22 years I have owned it, since it was brand new. I hope Michelin continues to make the Defender.

I bought these tires after the original tires wore out after 36,000 miles. What a difference these tires make in the way the car rides and handles. They are quite and run smoothly unlike the OEM tires that came with the Jeep Patriot. I feel like I have a new car. Winter is coming (to Durango, CO) and I am looking forward to seeing how they handle the snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mel now I am a Michelin Man (tho thinner than the original)
This is my second consecutive set of Michelin tires....they handle perfectly, are durable beyond belief, and make very little road noise....all my vehicles will have them within 2 more years (5 vehicles in all)...they are rock solid tires for which I will gladly pay more for, rather then to drive cheaper lower quality tires...bravo Michelin, and thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Al Changed everything
I have a 2006 Buick Rendezvous. I bought this vehicle mainly to transport my elderly parents. I never liked it...till i put a set of Defenders on it. Trust me, those tires changed everything. It drives like a dream and I now love it. I have read road noise complaints about these tires. It must depend on the vehicle, but in my case, road noise is much lower than with previous tires. Don't skimp on tires.What is between your vehicle and the road? Today I bought two for the front of my S10 without blinking. I am not a plant. I highly recommend these tires.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AIRMAN Michelin Defender Tires is truly a tire ahievement
I have always been a believer in Michelin Tires for many reasons including reliability,ride,and handling.! I was happy when Michelin launched the Defender Series.My 1998 Camry XLE rides like a new car, and handles magnificently on straight roads, and curves. It is almost like driving on a magic carpet. Michelin Defender tires stick to the road on rainy and snow filled days.The Defender is also a 90,000 mile tire., and quiet. I also found that the tire pressure stays pretty constant without much deviation. Thanks Michelin for producing the Defender Tires Series.

This tire is exactly what it claims to be. .A very quiet and smooth riding tire with excellent traction. I normally put about 50 miles a day on my car, and I could immediately tell what a positive difference in the way my vehicle handles. A pricey tire, however, well worth it. I would recommend this tire to anyone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Go Yankees Did not last 90k miles
Purchased the 90k tires for a 2007 Honda Odyssey van. Rotated tires ever oil change or between 3k and 4k. Also, had alignment done as needed. Only got about 64k miles out of tires. Dealer told me it would do know good to prorate tires because the warranty would only have 26K left and I would also have to pay for mount, balance, etc. per Michelin I paid full price to not pay for the mount, balance, etc. and have the full warranty. We purchased the same tires again as they have lasted longer than any other tire we have tried. On another note, I purchased the Harmony 80k tire for my Honda Accord and had 87k when I purchased new Defender's.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Tim 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.
