Overview

Defender 225/65R17

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

So far these have been great tires. I did ALLOT of research before purchasing to find the one that fits my needs. My primary reason for purchasing these particular tires was for my wife's safety.

Comments:
Horrible on snow. The rubber is too hard to have decent traction on cold surface. Thread wore out unevenly after 25k on the tires although I do regular alignments on the vehicle as part of lifetime package. If you don't need to drive in rain ice and snow it should be good tire foe you. Definately can't live its mileage lifetime expectancy but you can claim a prorated refund from the warranty.
