Overview

Michelin Defender Overview


Passenger

The Michelin Defender is a touring all-season tire specially designed to provide you with fuel efficiency, reliable handling, and year-round traction. Ideal for family cars, minivans, and small crossover vehicles, the Michelin Defender provides drivers with the confidence they need in both dry, wet, and light snow conditions. This is thanks to the silica-based tread compound with a mildly asymmetric tread design which was made to provide excellent traction on a wide range of temperatures. This is further enhanced by the Michelin IntelliSipe Technology which helps enhance tread block stiffness while reducing rolling resistance and wear rate. This means you get to enjoy fuel efficiency without sacrificing performance or durability. Another function of the IntelliSipe Technology is to increase the number of sipes which create biting edges needed during rain and light snow conditions. To help maximize the stress experienced by the tires when in contact with the road is the Michelin MaxTouch Construction.

Features & Benefits

  • Meets the Michelin Green-X objectives as it has low rolling resistance which contributes to fuel economy
  • Four circumferential grooves and hundreds of lateral notches to drain water out of the tires thus enhancing wet traction and reducing hydroplaning risk
  • Promotes even wear and long tread life with the combination of MaxTouch Construction and IntelliSipe Technology

I replaced my old Michelin Defenders with this new set of Michelin Defenders, and they have been riding great! After having them approximately 45 days now, these new tires have been so smooth turning corners and while traveling on the freeway--even in the rain! So, if I could purchase them again in the future, I would continue to purchase them. Also, I am happy that SimpleTire had them. They were so hard to find and the process of ordering through SimpleTire was so easy! Even when I had a question on my order concerning the billing address/shipping address being different, the representative I spoke with immediately clarified and handled the situation. Plan to use SimpleTire again--especially since I can use PayPal as well.

I had these tires for about a month and drove over 1500 miles. What difference it made. Very quiet on the interstate highway, handle turning is so solid. I never imagined that a set of four tires can make that difference! Michelin is from now on for me!

I am really happy with the Michelin Defender tires. The ride is so smooth and quiet that I really enjoy driving my car. I would recommend the tire for everyone who is willing to pay $ 528.00 for a set of 4. It’s worth every penny. I’m supposed to get a 80.000 miles out of this tires ( factory recommendation) so future will tell...Lester...
