Every time I put new Michelin tires on my car, I feel like I am glued to the road - meaning, almost like I am on rails. Love them!

Great tire!!! Replaced the original Equipt tire -- poor tires from the manufacturer. These Michelin's are a fantastic improvement -- if they last half of the 90,000 miles wear they claim, they will be worth it for the safety of my family.

Being a former Bridgestone loyalist, I was very skeptical about purchasing a new brand, nonetheless a relatively new tire in the Michelin Defenders. These new tires would be for my wife's daily driver, a 2009 Camry Hybrid. After having driven her car during hard rain, dry summer days, and several thousand miles back and forth to Chicago from Atlanta, I am now smitten by their performance. Although All-Season tires are designed to be a compromise for performance and durability in multiple climates and environmental conditions, these tires perform flawlessly! I was so convinced of these tires' performance and value that I have purchased them for my daily driver. When my SUV needs new tires, my choice has already been made.

They are the best traction tire when it comes to riding in the snow, but I feel they wear quicker in the hot weather.

I'm in the military and when I buy tires, I look for the warranty and the longevity of the tires themselves. These tires are great when it has rained or is raining, and I just recently got to try them out in the snow. I would definitely recommend these tires to all of my family.

Michelin Defender tires made this small car safer in all driving conditions. Winter driving has been much more stable with these tires on my car. I will always choose Michelin tires for any other vehicles in the future.

Havent been in snow yet, but they are great on H2O! Amazing tires so far. They are super quiet and smooth.

Great tire, made the drive a lot easier. Gave the vehicle great balance and traction. It also had an effect on the smoothness of the way car drove. Would definitely buy them again.

Quiet ride! Haven't tried them in the snow yet, but sure I will have plenty of opportunities soon!

Got the Defenders to replace the Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S's on my 03 Camry SE, and was pleasantly surprised. They were as good as the Exalto's were, but the Defenders are even better. They are much quieter than the Exalto, they don't transfer as much road noise. The ride is much better, they corner every bit as well, are great in heavy rain, and work only slightly less as well in light snow as the Exalto. But the best part is their rolling resistance is much less. You can actually feel the difference and for close to the same price, too. I actually picked up about a mile per gallon on fuel economy on road trips.
I drive a lot and have a little over 15 thousand miles on them and they show almost no wear at all.
I very highly recommend them.

These tires are the best. They will last a lifetime if you only drive in town. I got this set for my 03 VW Golf and they are amazing!

Glad I decided on this tire. It handles well and Michelin stands behind their products. Great tire for the mileage warranty and price.

Have had these tires on my van. I liked them.

I recently got a set of these Defenders to replace the set of Harmony's I had on the car and what a difference! The car handled so much better. They're dead quiet... and the wet traction is great! They bit right in the traction control on the Town Car! Additionally, my local shop was very helpful with my rebate. All in all, very very satisfied!!

The quietest, smoothest ride ever.
This is the first time I've ever actually noticed a difference in the ride, handling, and quietness of any tire I've ever purchased. I've bought tires for myself and family for a long time and do check into the specs of a tire. With these tires, I could tell driving home after the install that they were a change for the better. So far they are the best tires I've ever owned. I will be getting the Defender tire for my wife's car when she needs them in a few months.

I replaced Michelin Harmony's on my Altima when the Defender was released. I could tell a huge difference before I even got home. So far they have 15K miles and still look brand new, but my dealer rotates them on schedule

Researched many tires and looked at many places and so many said this was the best tire on the market-- well, after driving for over 30 years I would say this tire as many before it are over hyped and too much emphasis on reviews to help sell this tire. It was decent, but for the price, was nothing special and especially not very good in MN winters or even on simple roads with a little snow on them. Treadware warranty is also overstated and this won't be the last tire you buy!

Is keeping up the state of your car and its parts before they tire out. A majority of people wait until the car demonstrates signals of break down previous to truly taking it out to the repair shops.
Take the steps needed to ensure a long life for your car:
> Oil Changes
> Engine Coolant
> Tire Rotation
> Wheel Alignment
