Michelin Defender LTX M/S
Initial Review: 75,000 miles on tires
March 10, 2017

I have put two sets of these Michelin's on our car and I am about to put on a third. I got 80,000 miles out of the first set, 70,000 out of the second and only replaced because I will be potentially be driving them in snow. My only criticism of the tires is that I have not found the traction to be great in snow and mud the few times I have my Pilot in those situations. I live in South Carolina, so it's not much of an issue but if I still lived in Maine I would either have separate winter tires or look at other options.
