Rated 5 out of 5 by Yarisowner Very good so far
I just bought these tires 4 days ago but so far I'm very impressed. I like the 90k tread life. These tires are much quieter than the tires I had previously. They also ride very smooth. Stopping and cornering is much improved. I thought the price was high but was able to take advantage of the $70 rebate michellin is offering right now so that helped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer high price, but maybe worth it!
I bought 4 Defender tires a month ago for my 1999 Buick Century & right off we find the ride much smoother than previous tires we had. How they wear in the future, time will tell. But I am very optimistic tho.

Rated 4 out of 5 by traveling salesman2 smooth ride
bought these tires 5/9/12 as a replacement for a 2003 Lincoln LS. These tires are smooth but have much more road noise than I expected. I have said in the past I would not purchase Michelins again, after a bad experience, but chose to give them another try

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frosty Tires are as I expected!
Only had these new Defender tires 2 days, so far, in town, on a road trip yesterday and driving around the area.....I am VERY IMPRESSED! Did a lot of research and the tires is already living up to all that you promised! Great handling, I know as I used to race cars, and the comfort is there as promised and now that we are retired and not doing a lot of driving I am sure there will be a lot of tread still on them after the recommended replacement time of 10 years. Thanks for making the greatest tire on the road!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Wears best
I travel by automobile extensively, The last set of new tires gave me 19,000 miles and had to be replaced. My experience with Michilen over the years has convinced me to stick with the best. Best wear, best ride and best safety. We noticed a marked difference in the ride as soon as we pulled out of the tire store. I'm very impressed with the Defender.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bufbooth Defender tires replaced my HydroEdge
I have had great luck in the past with Michelin HydroEdge tires and was a bit upset when I heard that the HydroEdge tires were being discontinued, until I learned about the Defender tires replacing them. I only have about 500 miles on my Defender tires, but so far they are quite and handle just as good as the HydroEdge tires in the rain. My vehicle is a 2003 Oldsmobile Van.

Bought these yesterday to replace X radials on 2007 TC van. I have ran 3 sets of X radials over 60.000 miles on two vans. I was told this tire was replacing the X radial, the defender rides smooth and with the fuel saving and safety features who could go wrong.

Just put a set on last week on a 2011 Honda CR-V, replacing the OEM tires after just 19000 miles.....drives a handles much differently and better than when new. Worth the price if you drive a lot as I do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by easyrider good ride
Just installed a set of Defenders on my minivan. What a difference. Much quieter,and it seems like the van rolls with less resistance. Planning a long trip up north so I hope the tires are as good as the hype.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Astro The Defender is great!
Put a set of the Defenders on my Lincoln Town Car. My wife said, "I can't believe how much better the car handles and it is so quite. The ride is much better over rough roads as well." She was not aware of all the ads about the Defender. We would not go back to a regular tire. Ron
