Put about 15K in all on these tires had to have two replaced bcs of a nail and a shard of metal, replaced under warranty. These are great tires, no messing around, great tires. They do have a harder compound and you can tell by the ride noise and wet traction, but if you take the mileage into account they still are worth the extra money. I would buy them again, as to overall mileage I don't think they will go 90K, but they have such a good warranty the prorated amount will make up for any mileage problems. Big Al

This was my 1st set of defenders I recently bought them for my accord (so we like them). yes, we like these tires, we had the factory ls4s then nokia tires. These are so nice to drive, they corner well, stop outstanding and start well. Best tires this van will ever have. I couldn't justify any more money on tires. Note they are a bit noisy, but if they last 90K we don't care, they are not that noisy.
