I PUT THESE ON MY 2004 MPV 74,000 MILES.THEY'RE GREAT,LIKE RIDING ON AIR AND VERY QUIET. MY SIZE 215/60/16
I had purchased the Michelin Defender in October of 2013 and only got just under 15,000 miles and had a blowout. I took it back to the retailer that I purchased it from to get it replaced because of the 90,000 mile warranty and they informed me there was no warranty and I had to purchase another new tire. Needless to say I feel that I have just been scammed and personally I don't know Michelin would do business with someone that doesn't uphold their own company warranties. I deserve my money back for the second tire so what are you going to do?
I have over 85,000 miles on a set and just found out the A/S version of the Defender is no longer available yet still on everyones website. The H+T version is more than 10% aditional cost with more than 10% less treadwear life. The H+T does have a higher speed rating than the A/S, but the 118mph speed rating of the original is more than enough for my Prius.
My wife and I are very happy with our new car, but extremely pleased with the life of our Michelin tires - we got over 100,000 miles on our set. We highly recommend Michelin and rate them a "10" in our book.
First time and last time buyer!
Rated for 70K and got 30K.
Rotated with every oil change.....
Expensive tire and for what?
I bought these tires hoping I wouldn't have to replace my tires again for a while... They went just over 25,000 miles and all the tread is gone!!! I am replacing them after just a few months of owning them and I rotated them each oil change and did all the proper maintenance according the my tire shop. I use my car as a daily commuter and nothing else. This was my first and last time buying Michelin tires.
These are great tires! There quite and handle good. This is my second set I just put on my 09 Ford Fusion. The first set I put on my car I got 91000 miles out of them. I just made sure I rotated them every 5000 to 7000 miles and make sure the alignment on the car is good.
