I have several vehicles and Michelin is my first choice on every one. I have had some Michelin's last 90K miles and have only had one go bad before they were ready to be replaced in 40 years of driving. None better.

I cannot "say" this loudly enough...these tires are great!
I pulled off a set of BF Goodrich Rugged Terrains after 10K miles due to poor ride, very loud and loss of fuel economy
I went with the LT version of this tire to make sure it would support the weight of the vehicle and I am glad i did.
The LTX MS2's have totally transformed how my Armada drives and rides. Much smoother, much quieter. I am ready to start checking MPG to see if I have made any impovements on that as well. I am sure that I have just in the smoothness of the ride vs the Rugged Terrains.
Wish I would have pulled off the Rugged Terrains even sooner!!
Great first impressions of the LTX MS2!!

Replaced the OEM Goodyear LS2 with a set of these Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 and am very happy with the result. Had a nail too close to the sidewall in one of my tires with almost 30K miles on them and decided to replace the set instead of trying to put one new tire on. The ride on the non-run flats is so much better! The ride on the Goodyears was very harsh and you felt every bump in the road. The traction was also starting to slip in the corners, the new Michelins stick in the corners and have great traction, are quite and ride quality makes the vehicle feel like an entirely different car! So much better, would highly recommend over the OEM Goodyear runflats. Only downside is no peace of mind if you get a flat.

I had to write a review after reading some of the ones posted. This is the third set of these tires I've had on this vehicle and they are superb. Got 65K-66K on each set. I can only surmise that these other fellows did not keep them inflated and balanced. No reason not to get 60K plus. I have only used Michelins for the past 30 years. My Odyssey came with the Michelin PAX tires as original equipment. That was my only bad experience with the brand.

Bought these tires to replace my stock Michelin Primacy MXM4s. After 15000 miles, here are my impressions:
1) Fantastic contact with pavement but at the expense of somewhat increased road noise.
2) Excellent traction under dry and wet conditions, so so in snow, awful on ice.
3) No visible wear after 15K miles

Overall, I am very happy with these tires and would purchase them again.

Greatly improves the ride and handling of the car, road noise is very minimal over cracks and grooves. Lots of confidence in the wet, I've driven through heavy torrential rain this summer on the highway and have been able to maintain control through unsuspecting puddles that arise on the road. Upsizing from the stock 185/65R15 make the car handle as should have left the factory, just a touch wider and taller help improve the ride A LOT. I'm sure many Versa drivers experience the wallowing effect in fast crosswinds and this is not apparent anymore with these tires. I'm gonna update this comment when I find myself measuring the tread depth and noticing expanding grooves.

I bought these tires and a set of 18" Hyundai rims to replace the 19" factory wheels on the car. I had two hydroplaning incidents and a terrible ride quality during my first 10,000 miles. The change was like night to day. The cars ride quality was 50% better along with an improved feel in cornering an no issues in some extreme rain and 6" deep standing water! I would trade a slight hum on smooth asphalt for less shock from the steering wheel and a tire-wheel package that is safe to drive in wet conditions.

I purchased this tire based off the Tire Rack reviews and have been very pleased. They ride so smooth that at first I was worried they would be too soft to corner well, but I have found them very confidence inspiring and a significant upgrade over my Pilot Sport MXM4's. They are also excellent in the rain and I have yet to feel them hint at hydroplaning even at highway speeds in heavy rain.

Defender gives a smooth, comfortable, and reasonably quiet ride, on most road surfaces. Dry traction is good and cornering is predictable. Wear is even with 6/32" tread left after 22,000 miles; I estimate my Defenders will safely be a 65,000 mi. tire. (35 psi works for me) You should consider Michelin Defenders, if you want quality touring tires and have an average driver style.
Although predictable in corners, Defenders didn't give the crisp handling I expected. Also, I'd advise an easy going style, allowing more room under wet braking. Ease out carefully under wet acceleration, too.

OEM tires. I am actually surprised at their endurance. On civic forums a lot of people were getting <20,000miles or less on these tires and I still consider myself a spirited driver, though I am usually just hauling ------- on the highway and enjoy the curves in some favorite spots of mine. I thought I was going to need tires already but I will rotate one more time and will probably see around 31-33,000 miles out of these. Not too bad. Maybe I should've expected better. They're Michelin's and it's hard to go wrong with Michelin. I am probably going to try the pilot sport AS/3's or primacy mxm4's next round.

Have only driven 25K miles since mounting these back in 2009, but they have far exceeded my expectations in all around performance, and remarkably, still look as if they have many miles to go. Sadly, the old Camry XLE handling is more like an old Buick although very reliable and comfortable, it is not a drivers car. If it ever wears out will move to an SE. Am an old driver who grew up in the 50s, owned many cars and lots of Michelins dating back to my late 60s Volvo, and these MXV4s are the best of them all. Highly recommend for very good handling and long wear, Very good in snow for all season. Recently touched 100MPH (briefly) and still felt safe and secure.. Bravo Michelin.

I use this set of tires for both driving to work and track days at Miller Motorsports Track (HPDE). This is an excellent set of tires. I have tried the Toyo Proxes but these are much better for overall traction and for tread life. I burn up two sets of rears to one set of fronts. I have seen a lot of other Porsche owners switch to these tires. These are not high mileage tires if you drive like I do but they are definitely worth the price.

I bought the tires about three years ago, to replace stock Bridgestone Duelers on my Highlander. Tires are an all-around excellent value - fantastic wear, solid ride and built to last. I drive at high speed on the highways and in stop-and-go city traffic (in Washington DC). DC's roads are always under construction. Tires have worn very well. Best tires I have ever used or seen - by the Michelins as you get what you pay for.

Initial Review, 10,000 Miles on Tires
July 13, 2014

After reading the review from another, older, Mercedes Benz owner, I was compelled to share my thoughts on Michelin's Defender. Had these tires put on last fall ('13). I had a set of Yokohama Avids and they were the worst tires in the snow. A half an inch of snow would scare me to death. 60,000 mile warranty and I was unable to 25,000 miles out of them. Had an alignment prior to installing them, but the soft shoulders were bald at 25,000 miles. Liked what I saw about the Defenders and decided to give them a try.

The previous reviewer said they were hard and could feel every stone and expansion joint. I had the exact opposite reaction! The Defenders were soft, but firm in cornering. (Maybe tire pressure not set correctly?) In the snow, they were incredible. Drove thru some 6-8" snows this year and felt like they had great traction in the snow. Wet was equally impressive!

I have some past SCCA solo experience, not to say I want to take on Vettel or Hamilton. But I know how to push a car to under steer or over steer. I haven't pushed my rear wheel drive shooter to the limits, but enough to say the Defenders are sticky. I also haven't seen any shoulder wear. I highly recommend these tires if you are driving a rear wheel drive and are concerned about snow/wet traction, and want a long lasting dry weather tire.
