I damaged one of the OEM tires while on the road at a distance from home. Given that the tires were nearing end of life, I bought a whole new set. It was either Michelin Defenders, or Yokohama Avid Ascend. The dealer and the literature promised a quieter ride and better gas mileage. They were both right. Very pleased with them so far, after 80K km (50K miles). Have not driven them in the snow, so I cannot rate that. I put in a four to get the system to accept the review.
This is without a doubt the worst tire I have ever owned and I have driven over a million miles in my lifetime. The ride is rough and the noise level is so high you can't even carry on a conversation when the people sitting in the back seat. They are miserable on a long tire. My advise is avoid these tires, PERIOD.
