Recently, drivers were introduced to the Michelin Defender. This tire has been very well received and has now replaced some of Michelin's popular models, including the Harmony. What is the difference between these two tires?
The Michelin Harmony is a Passenger All-Season tire suitable for minivans, family sedans and compact cars. It has good all-season traction and is relatively quiet and comfortable. Harmony tires also last long as they come with an 80,000-mile treadlife warranty.
Michelin's Defender took these attributes and improved upon them. It's a Standard Touring All-Season tire, which means it will have a better ride better than the Harmony. The tire has shown to have better all-season traction and lasts longer with an incredible 90,0000-mile treadlife warranty for T- and H-rated models. An 80,000-mile warranty is available for the V-rated version. In addition, the Defender enhances fuel economy by meeting Michelin's Green-X low rolling resistance objectives.
If you own the Harmony or have owned it in the past, and are looking for a replacement tire for your vehicle, take a look at the Michelin Defender.
