Michelin Defender
Initial Review: 2,000 miles on tires
January 13, 2014

I was skeptical of some of the really positive reviews of this tire, especially because I did not have that great an experience w Michelin before. But I decided to give Michelin another shot and bought four Defender for my Toyota van. VERY IMPRESSED within the first one hundred feet of driving. Very very good response from the parking lot, onto the city streets (90 degree turns), and then turnpike driving. Smooth! Responsive(and yes, w a van !). I would strongly recommend these tires, as rarely, no...never have I seen such a positive improvement for a tire on my vehicle. This is the first time I have ever reviewed a tire, but I felt others should know. I have zero idea how the tire will wear, but it has a 90,000 mile warranty....
