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.

with 60000 km on these tires, the casings were cracked and tread was probably 65% worn. Its my wifes car, she does only local driving and doesn't drive like a nut. In snow they are useless, when they were new, just put on, we had to drive up a slope at a hotel not a steep one, and it wouldn't go up, embarrassing to say the least. No one else had that problem and the tires were NEW.

Good up to 60 mph. At 70 in cross wind drives like a snake. At 75 changing lanes brings white knuckles and grey hair

Replaced original Continental tires which were very quiet and was getting great gas mileage. The Defenders handle exceptionally well on wet roads and good in snow however are extremely noisy and the gas mileage has dropped considerably from previously 6.6L per 100K to an average of 9.0. In fact the vehicle now needs extra power on steep hills. Would replace them but cannot afford the cost in doing so.These are new tires with only about 500 KM on them and the performance mentioned above began as soon as installed.
