Love Michelin tires, but the tread wear on the defender tires were disappointing. Despite regular dealership servicing - rotation of tires, alignments, tire pressure checks, etc we did not get the mileage we expected out of these tires. Instead of 145,000 kms we only got 90,000 kms. We bought a new set today and if we have the same experience we will make a warranty claim. The dealership told us that there have been some design changes with this tire and we are hoping for better wearability the 2nd time around.
Thank you fellow reviewers. You are right this tire is awesome. My 2007 Camry feels like a brand new car ride. Quiet, soft ride and handles great. I just got the tires and hopefully they will be good for the long haul. This review site made me fill in everything, but I really don't know how they handle in snow, rain and treadwear because I just bought them.
These tires have been absolutely flawless, best I have ever owned. Super performance at interstate high speed cruzing and very quite. I would never buy any other brand of except Michellin, I am hooked on these tires.
