Michelin Defender
  • Price Range:  USD $111.99 to $224.99
    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.

    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.

    I am not impressed with these tires at all!! They are horrible in the winter and rain. I have never had such a horrible experience with tires EVER! These tires have no traction in the winter and very little traction on wet pavement. Step on the gas from a complete stop and all they do is spin! No traction in the winter, I've never been stuck so much in my life! I had a 2001 Chevy Impala for 12 years NEVER was I stuck in that car! The tires I had on that were NOT Michelin - they were a cheaper brand (got cheaper as the car got older). Bought the tires for my van in April 2013...Winter of 2013 - yea it was a bad one - got stuck every other day in my driveway, at intersections, in parking lots, trying to go up small hills. These tires are NOT worth a penny! Michelin lost my business! I paid $780 for these crappy tires! That's the most I've EVER spent on tires...I won't make that mistake again!

    Lifetime Michelin customer here.. MX4s, Harmony and X1s. The Defender product provides a smooth quiet ride and grippy confident cornering. I am concerned about the observed amount of treadwear with only 10K on the tires and have no confidence that the tires will last the warranted 90K. Very pleased with the ride and performance.. disappointed with the treadwear.
