Description Specifications
Drive More, Spend Less on Fuel with the Michelin Defender 225/60R16 All-Season Tire With its fuel-efficient design, the Defender 225/60R16 All-Season Tire helps you save money on gas without requiring you to change your driving habits. This tire’s EnergySaver Construction features Green X technology that results in low rolling resistance, improving your vehicle’s overall fuel economy. Designed to provide enhanced traction, it has an asymmetric tread design that gives the tire a good grip in wet, dry and winter conditions. MaxTouch Construction uses a uniquely designed contact patch to evenly distribute the forces of acceleration and braking, which results in even wear down of the tire, making it more durable.

  • Intellisipe Technology maximizes the number of sipes for traction on slippery surfaces
  • Interlocking action of the sipes stiffens the tread block for a firm steering response
  • MaxTouch Construction distributes the forces of cornering and braking, helping the tire wear evenly
  • Noise-free performance for a comfortable, peaceful ride

They don't stand by their warranty

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?

No longer available -Too bad.


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.

Excellent durability


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.

Didn't last at all


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.

Great 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.
