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.

Second set of Defender AS tires I purchased. At 27,000 miles, tread is worn to unsafe level. Worn evenly. Warranty is 90,000 miles. Balanced and rotated every 6,000 miles. Aligned every 6-8,000 miles. Will never purchase in future.

We bought these for my wife's Matrix. Simply put, they are the worst tires we've ever owned and are our first, and last, set of Michelins. They suck! While brand new, my wife noticed that in wet weather, they would spin while started from a stop and she is not an aggressive driver. What I really want to warn you about is the treadwear- these tires have a rating of 90,000 miles and are worn out after 37,000. Don't waste your hard earned money, buy something else!!
