I am on my second set already and my car has less than 120k miles. It came with a different brand of tires, and when they wore out we put these on. Those wore out in 49k miles. The second set is already at the wear bars with only 41k. I will never buy these tires again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chris New Purchase
Just purchased these tires on 7/7/2016. These new tires replaced the Michelin Harmony, (And is no longer available) which is what I had before purchasing The Defender. I get basic use out of the tires, city and highway. No road trips. I like the feel and the handling of the tiers. Haven't found anything that I dislike about the tires. Michelin make good tires. Will always have my business.

Old car Honda CR-V. We were going on a road trip. Tires made a huge difference . Felt like we were riding on air.

Rated 5 out of 5 by rickrac great tire
My first set of Michelins was the Hydro Edge and I loved them. Michelin replaced the Hydro Edge with the Defender and have kept the high level quality in these tires. I had one set one a Camry and got just under 90k miles on them. I had another set on my Civic and had 92k miles on them. The tires still had thread left, but I knew I would need a set before next winter. I replaced the tires on both cars recently and purchased another set of Defenders.

Rated 3 out of 5 by janet Not holding up to warranty mileage
Love the tire for lack of road noise and grip but only got 30,000 out the tires. Sold as a 90,000 mile tires. Had them rotated every 5000 miles and front end alinment. Very disapponted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LMRwheels Honda Fit- small car....
with wonderful new tires! The defender tires have lived up to their name...I have incredible grip on the road and a much sounder ride with them on! It was worth the expense as my small car was susceptible to hydro-planing and road noise. These tires have made a really positive difference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nick Good tire but mileage overrated
I like this tire in that it is quieter than most and has good traction in poor weather conditions. I have them on a Honda Odyssey van which I mostly drive for longer trips and not much around town. My concern is that they were rated for 90,000 miles, I expected about 70,00 but got only 55,000. My dealer said that they were worn wrong but I have a 4 wheel alignment every 6 months. So I only got about 65% wear of what they were rated for. Maybe it is because the van is a large vehicle...

I purchased the Michelin Defender tires back in August 2013 and am extremely satisfied with them. Will soon be due for a new set and plan on purchasing them again. The ride is very comfortable and quiet. I live in Pennsylvania where we had a large blizzard last winter. I had no problems getting around.
