Does This Tire Fit?

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.

I have seen reviews for this tires life expectancy and feel it's an unfair assessment. I purchased the Michelin Defenders early 2014 because the current tires supplies on my vehicle did not meet the standard of driving in a Minnesota winter. I've had the tire for for years, and my car almost has 90,000 miles on it. I don't know if the problem for the tire wearing out prematurely is the environment or driving style, rotation and maintenance or even tire pressure. The dealership often does not inflate my tires to the proper pressure and I have to remind them that my tire is not stock. I'm going to be getting another set because last winter I noticed some performance issues in the snow and ice, but we had a brutal winter in 2017. Also I have a nail or screw in one of them and think it'd be a good time to do it

Probably the best tires I've ever had, they grip the road well, and I feel safer with Michelins.
