    All Season

    Michelin´s best standard passenger car - minivan tire ever offering confident driving through exceptional safety, longevity and a quiet, comfortable ride so that you can protect those you care about most.

    • Exceptional grip provided by IntelliSipe™ Technology maximizes the number of sipes within the tire, which allows you to brake confidently when you need to most for greater peace of mind in stressful driving situations.
    • MaxTouch Construction combined with the interlocking action of Michelin´s Breakthrough IntelliSipe™ Technology delivers impressively long wear life by providing exceptional tread block rigidity while optimizing the tire´s contact with the road during acceleration, braking and cornering.
    • The interlocking action of IntelliSipes™ creates a more rigid tread block, which allows for a reduced starting tread depth leading to lower rolling resistance so you can save fuel without sacrificing safety or longevity.

    Don't buy the Michelin Defender unless you want new tires every 30,000 miles. These tires have chunks of rubber coming off! I purchased them based on their 90,000 mile warranty and the recommendation by Consumer Reports. After 30,000 miles the tread is separating and chunks are coming off! Michelin won't stand by their 90 k warranty! The tire dealer offered a small percentage. Based on other owners' reviews in Consumer Reports I think Michelin should 'recall' these tires or be sued! Other comments are they are noisy and handle poorly in the northwest's wet climate.

    My 2006 Honda Odyssey touring came with PAX tires. I changed my rims and bought Michelin Defender XT's. The improvement over the PAX tires is noticeable. I am nolonger held prisoner to dealer only tire changes and repair. The Defenders last longer than the OEM tires, and I can now shop for best prices on my tires. I am very happy.

    I had bought used tires with good tread a year before ($200). It snowed in Washington two months later, and I couldn't even get up a small hill. I spent several months researching tires and had decided on Michelin Defenders a few years back, but couldn't afford the $860 price tag. I learned I was moving to Colorado and knew I needed to bite the bullet. I could feel the change right away. Smoother, much more stable. When I got to Colorado and the snow hit I was a little worried about getting to work. Not a single issue. Most people say wider isn't better for snow, but I disagree. With these tires wider has been GREAT. Two days in, and I'm perfectly comfortable with controlled slides around corners for turning on purpose. I'm just hoping the tread wear lasts as long as it's supposed to.
