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.

Bought Michelin's on all four of my vehicles. Generally, I have fairly good luck with Michelin. These Defender tires are worn out at 25000 kms. I wouldn't recommend them.

I gave a 1 on treadwear mainly because there was nothing lower. We have less then 40K on them, and they need replaced. Not even half of the 90 K, I was told they would get.

I have always been a fan of Michelin. Until now. I have had them for about 2 years with a little over 30k miles in them. They have never been a smooth, comfortable ride (which is what I expect from a Michelin tire) and were never quiet. But recently the noise has become obnoxious. Another reviewer described the noise similar to mud tires on a truck. I have to agree. They are wearing on the edges, even with religious rotating and alignments. Terrible tire especially for what I paid for them. Michelin has lost a 25 year loyal customer because of the Defender.
