Michelin Defender
  • Price Range:  USD $101.99 to $222.99
    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.

    Would give it a 0/5 for tread if possible... Got a flat tire hitting a curb within a month of having these- the sidewall of the tire was easily gouged and not at all durable like it is portrayed to be. I contacted Michelin and they do not have any kind of warranty protection for this. Be careful believing the hype- I replaced an inexpensive set with these thinking I was making the smartest choice. I have bumped curbs in the past and never had a flat because of it! They are not worth the money and their customer support is very poor.

    Fine if you're buying the name Michelin. My first set of Michelins. 85K tread wear warranty? PFFFFTTTTT. Have 36K. Hope to get another 5000 miles or so before tread wears completely out. Tires were rotated ever 5K. Traction really declines in wet weather as tread wears down. Would not recommend!!

    Very expensive tires, initially I was pleased with these tires they provide fantastic dry and wet weather traction and cornering, they are very quiet and comfortable tire and I would buy them again if they hadn't worn out to the point where they will no longer pass a motor vehicle inspection after 40000 km, they are supposed to be good for 145000km, extremely disappointed in treadware. If you are a confident agressive driver I would only recommend these if you don't mind the poor tire lifespan. They DO NOT hold up to sustained high speed driving and agressive cornering, braking and acceleration. I cannot speak to snow characteristics as I would NEVER run an all season tire in the snow it is not designed for this purpose and anyone here complaining because they bought them for snow tires and are disappointed in the performance all I can say is you got what you bought, a 3 season tire.

    VERY noisy tires. Think, "riding in a small, propellor driven commuter airliner" loud. I thought I was having drive train trouble. Turned out, it was just the tires. Can't rate these things for snow. I switch to snow tires in the winter.
