Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires
October 17, 2012

A week ago I replaced a set of Michelin Energy, worn out at about 40,000 mi with a set of new Defenders. I live in the Sierra foothills, about 30 miles of rough twisting pavement to the nearest town. These new Defenders are much quieter than the old. Handling was good before but even better now. So far no experience with either rain or snow. I may review again next Spring.
