I had the same experience as several others. Great ride off the bat. Very expensive tires ($700 plus for 4) supposedly made to last 90K. I drive a manual, so light on the braking, and very low miles/week, all city streets or freeways. less than two years and barely 20K miles, my mechanic recommended replacement. I was living in snow country at the time and had a harrowing experience with them in snowy conditions (so much for "all weather" tires). Luckily, Discount Tires gave me a great pro-rated deal on a set of new tires recommended by my mechanic so I paid less than $40/tire mounted and balanced for my Toyo Extensas. Hoping they perform better.

I bought these tires in spring of 2013, so I've had them 2 years. They were very expensive (over $800), but I bought them for the 90,000 rating. At first they were great, a 100% improvement over the old tires. They were excellent in rain and snow. But there was noticeable tread wear after only 10,000 miles, and this last winter (I live in Michigan) they were terrible in the snow. I got stuck in my own driveway for the first time ever, and the tires spun every time I started to move on any snow at all. Now last week I went in for a tire rotation and was told they are worn out, after only 34,000 miles. I couldn't believe it! Then they would only give me a small percentage off on the new tires, and they wanted to give me another set of Defenders. Are they nuts? Why would I buy those again? I'm extremely disappointed that these tires wore out so super fast. I've had cheap tires last more than twice as long.

Will replace my tires at 55,000 mls with another set of Defenders. Very quiet, exceptional handling and traction in snow and rain.
