I bought these to replace my OEM tires based upon Consumer Reports review. I am quite satisfied with these tires. Our driveway is nearly 300 feet with a steep incline. Over the years, we have had trouble getting up in snow. This March, we had the worst snow storm in years, but had no difficulty with these tires. This spring, we've had LOTS of rain, but the tires held their traction.

These are the second set of Michelin Defender tires I have put on the car after the Kumho's that came on the car when purchased new. The original Kumho tires only yielded 36,000 miles. My first set of Defender's yielded 48,000 miles. I am 15,000 miles into my second set and I still love the Defenders and feel more secure with them on the car. They are a great tire for a fair price. I would highly recommend them and have them on both of my cars.

I've been driving on Defenders for as long as they have been made, probably 15 years at least, on all my cars. I always get the rated wear, 80,000 miles, and I would never buy anything else. These are excellent tires.

This is my third set of Defenders on a Sienna. We bought it used; but it had an off-brand new set of tires that were terrible for traction. The difference between those and the Michelins are like night and day.

These are the manufacturers upgrade from the Factory Michelin® Energy LX4 tires for the 2008 Honda Odyssey EX-L. The extended tread life and performance of the tires really makes it worth spending a little extra for Michelin's. Overall I am very happy with the handling and road noise from these tires and always feel in complete control of my van. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who is looking for a non run-flat option for the Odyssey.

I was stuck for a tire replacement as I had damaged the tire; ripped the sidewall, on the front of the car. The OEM tires are Yokahama, which isn't a bad tire, but for some reason my size/model wasn't available. I stopped at COSTCO and they didn't have an exact replacement so I tried Mavis. They had a replacement tire which were the Michelin Defenders, and since the car has to have the same tire on each axle, I had to replace two tires. The first thing we noticed was that the noise level was considerably lower than the OEM tires. THat was a real bonus as this model Subaru has a lot of road & tire noise. The second was the handling. The Defenders seem to have more grip. Overall, this tire is far superior to the tires that came with the car. I may be a bit prejudiced, though, as I've been using Michelins since 1971. I try to switch to them as soon as I get a chance.

These two tires replaced one that was flat and not repairable and I always replace a pair, never just one tire. These are the same as the tires they replaced and the other 2 tires on the car. I've had no problems with the existing tires or the new ones. This was my late husband's car and I've very seldom driven it until recently since I have my own but since the Cadillac had so few miles I decided to keep it mainly for snow and rainy weather since my husband always said how great the car was in bad weather.

These tires made a huge difference in the car's winter handling. I actually had them put on during a pretty snowy day where quite a few car's were slipping on ice, particularly in one side street I took to Mavis. I decided to go the same way home after getting the new tires installed. It was like night and day. No slipping or sliding at all, even when accelerating after a deadstop at a red light. I noticed they are a little rougher/noisier on dry highways than my old tires, but I'll take that any day over spinning out on ice in western NY winters. Highly recommended for anyone who drives a lot in snow and slush.

After one month and 1,500 or so miles I'm fine with the Defenders - no experience yet with snow or ice.

Great tires. Handling, road noise, & tread wear excellant. These tires have the highest tread wear rating on the market. Pay a little more now and save in the long run. Only tires I buy

Mavis usually has the best price. I have had this brand of tires since I owned the car and would probably continue to get them. RIde is smooth and they last well, although the last set didnt last as long as i had planned. Would still recommend them.

These tires are awesome! I had two other sets of tires within the last nine months (from a competitor) and one set coupled within 8.000 miles and the other felt like I was driving on ice skates when it was raining. They were both horrible as was the trust I had in the competitor. I found Mavis and one of their mechanics recommended these tires as he and his wife had them. I am thrilled with the tire performance!! My car drives and handles so much better. Great pick up after being stopped and corners are smooth. Tires grip the road very well. I live in the northeast and I'm confident they will do well in the snow, which could be any day now. I highly recommend these tires!! Love them and I can be picky :-)!

Very happy with the Michelin Defenders on a minivan with over 210,000 miles. Excellent ride and dry traction, but the wet traction and hydroplaning resistance are amazing. Haven't driven them in snow, so I can't rate winter performance.

These are really good tires. Very expensive, but worth it. This is my second set on this car and they've served me very well since I first got them. I drive extensively all year round, in all weather, and I have found them to be excellent tires for nearly all road conditions.

This is my second set of Defenders on my Toyota Echo. I do not run them in the winter. I use dedicated snow tires. My first set of Defenders lasted me almost 100k miles. I rotated regularly and drive mostly highway.
