The Defender belongs to Michelin's passenger tire lineup and performs well in every season. This all-season tire delivers exceptional steering response on the highway and offers a quiet ride and excellent tread life. In fact, the Defender has 10-star ratings for wear life, handling and braking performance, and it offers better ride comfort and fuel efficiency than the leading competitor's passenger tires.

Michelin's All-Season Tires for Cars and Minivans

With its all-season tread and innovative siping, the Michelin Defender grips the road in wet, dry and wintry conditions. This tire has IntelliSipe Technology, which increases the number of sipes on the tire for improved grip in wet conditions. These sipes decrease your braking distances for added assurance on wet roads.

Because of its fuel-efficient design, the Michelin Defender lasts nearly 21,000 miles longer than other tires in its class. It consists of MaxTouch Construction, which maximizes the tire's contact with the road for improved acceleration, braking, cornering and wear life. The Defender saves you gas money in the long run while giving you a dependable ride in the best and the worst driving conditions.

Defender Features and Benefits

  • All-season tires for passenger cars and minivans
  • MaxTouch Construction for dependable handling, braking and cornering
  • IntelliSipe Technology for maximum wet traction and block stiffness
  • Orbital channels for hydroplaning resistance
  • Energy Saver Construction for increased fuel efficiency
  • Silica tread compound for longer tire life
  • 90,000-mile limited treadwear warranty

Dependable Performance for Mile After Mile

The Michelin Defender benefits your car in a variety of ways, from increasing your fuel efficiency to improving your braking and cornering performance. This tire provides extra grip in wet and dry conditions while generating extra biting edges for maximum snow grip. With long tread life and a generous warranty, you gain a dependable tire that goes the distance.

We have replaced Michelin Hydroedge Tires on two vehicles now with Michelin Defenders. We have been impressed with the way they have smoothed out the ride on both vehicles, each of which has more than 60,000 miles on them. Our primary focus was safe wet driving, since we rarely see snow or ice here. A very stable, quiet and responsive tire, in my opinion, and very highly rated by independant consumer review agencies. Our only problem with Michenlins in the past with long mileage guarantees has been never reaching close to the warranted mileage, however Michelin and Kauffman have always made good on their mileage warranty by pro-rating our next purchase.

I've got about 19,000 miles on my tires in a year and a half. The tread is currently at 4/32. The tires have pulled to the right since day one regardless of how they were rotated. I had the alignment checked multiple times. This is my wife's car. She primarily drives it to and from work, with the occasional weekend trip. Not sure what the deal is, but these tires are the worst I've had in years.

I believe that Honda designed the right tire for this vehicle. Since we bought this van brand new and have driven it up to 128,000 miles, we have changed the tires three times and had always had even wear across the tread. We have confidence in the van's handling in all weather conditions. We know the life of the tire doesn't always live up to 50k however when there is a deal on buying a new set, we would take advantage of the timing. Having tires replaced during a maintenance schedule or before a long trip. We do like the Michelin Defenders and would stick with them as long as we have this van.

We have done business with Kauffman for probably 20 years and they have stood behind their tires in every occasion. We were thinking about trading vehicles but decided to stay with our van and just put some really good tires on it. The Michelin seems to be a great tire with a high milage rating. They are quiet and make driving easy. We will be taking some trips soon we hope and they will get a good testing then.

I finally broke down and purchased some MICHELIN tires. After 50 years of driving and buying tires, I was always too cheap to buy Michelin's, but after facing the last tire purchase I might need before I have to give up driving, I decided to get a set of MICHELIN'S. They have been GREAT with no shaking or noise and they have given me the smoothest ride I've ever had.

The Michelin Defender is one great tire! It's been on my Toyota Camry for 2 years already with 23,000 miles driven. It handles precisely and helps the car feel as if it constantly has a solid footing on the road no matter what the weather. I have driven at high speeds in the hard pouring rain and never hydroplaned. This is the only tire I will consider having on my cars. I also have a 2012 and a 2014 Corolla and have put the Michelin Defender's on them as well! Awesome Tire! Thank you, Michelin!

I have had a set of four Michelin Defender tires on my Camry for about 6 weeks now. I bought these tires due to a good review in Consumer Reports and also because of the reputation of Michelin tires in general. The tires are very quiet. I hardly hear any road noise now. Also, I have noticed that they really grip the road when it's wet and provide great traction. I highly recommend this particular tire.

I have driven over 2.5 million miles and used over 15 cars in 60 years. I have driven Sear, Goodyear, Dunlap, and several more brands. Michelin has proven to be the most reliable tires in my opinion. My life and my families lives depend on michelin tires. They have proven to be the most reliable and safe tires in my opinion. The service I received from Kaufman has been impressive. I was a loyal customer of NTB for over 30 years, but thanks to their Conyers store manager, I have changed to Kaufman. The employees and equipment have impressed me and I will continue using them .

I knew I needed new tires, not only because the kind folks at my usual auto garage said so, but also because of the squeal going around the corners in the parking garage at work. With the new Michelin Defenders, no more squeal, plus a smooth, comfortable drive, both in the city and on the highway. Highly recommend these tires!!

I only use Michelin Tires. Kauffman recently opened a store in Clearwater, Florida. Their in-store credit of $100, plus the Michelin incentive of $70, as well as the $50 incentive to open a Kauffman credit card, was a perfect reason to buy the tires at Kauffman. The service was courteous, efficient and quick. I would recommend Kauffman to others.

I took off the factory tires as they were noisy and I could feel every piece of the road at 10,000 miles. I replaced them with the Defender after lots of research and evaluations by others. These are very good tires; quiet and smooth rolling. They handle wet roads very well and corners like a race car. You will not be disappointed with the Defender by Michelin.

I DROVE FROM TAMPA TO FLINT IN A DODGE GRAND CARAVAN SXT WITH NEWLY INSTALLED MICHELIN DEFENDERS. THE VAN HAD MUCH BETTER TRACTION IN THE RAIN WHEN STARTING AND STOPPING. THEY REALLY HELPED WITH THE FUEL ECONOMY ABOUT 2 TO 3 MILES PER GALLON. THE ONLY THING IS THAT THE ROAD NOISE SEEMED A BIT LOUDER. TO BE FAIR, THE VAN IS USUALLY FILLED WITH TOOLS. THESE ARE THE FIRST MICHELIN TIRES FOR ME, BUT NOT THE LAST. IN THIS CASE, IT REALLY IS WERE THE RUBBER MEETS THE ROAD. I HAVE TWO MORE VEHICLES, A TRUCK AND A SEDAN, AND THEY WILL GET MICHELINS WHEN IT'S TIME.

I have been a patron of Kauffman tire for 12 years. Michelin tires are top of the line! These Defenders are very smooth, quiet, and provide excellent traction on wet and dry pavement. I give the tire 5 stars for the tire's quality and ride. Kauffman has very talented technicians and I am a professional tech myself. I am quite picky when it comes to where I bring my vehicles for servicing.

I am rating this tire at 4 1/2 stars because I have not yet driven on the highway with them. Around the city with short bursts up to 55 mph, they have been excellent but I am anxious to see how they drive on expressway roads and interstate highways. I am expecting them to perform with a 5 star rating. Cornering and stopping have been excellent.

I knocked half of a star off the rating because of a drop in MPGs I got when I switched to these tires. They ride well and handle better than the LRR Goodyears they replaced. I would definitely consider these again.

I drive about 30k a year. The life of the tire is the most important part for me. These last pretty well. I have never gotten 90k out of them, I average about 70k. But I do replace before the end of life. I drive in rain a lot.

We had a set of two different tires on the car that we bought used. My wife drove it this way for almost two years. These new Michelin Defenders are well worth the money. We can hardily recommend them and we got a great price and service.

Overall I like these tires. The only thing that I don't like is when they are new, they have a lot of road noise.

These tires are smooth & quiet. They are slightly more harsh on small bumps at low speeds than my previous set of tires.

It took me a little bit to get use to the tires. The are much firmer than the tires I had before. They do provide a quieter ride.

I like Michelin. Michelin is very generous for any warranty claim. This was the second time I've made a claim for sidewall rot on Michelins, and the third set of Michelins on my Cadillac. The second set was MV4s which are wonderful tires. Kauffman recommended replacing them with the latest, Defender but that was a bad choice. It doesn't handle as well and has a lousy road feel compared to the MV4. Also, the traction is not better than the MV4 either.

These tires are Michelin Defenders, a 90,000 mile tire and they wore out with more than 50% of the warranty left. However, they are good riding tires and the set I had before these lasted more than 100,000 miles. I went back and purchased another set even though they wore out way before the allowable warranty rating.

These tires are much louder and have a rougher ride than the Michelin Primacy tires I previously owned. I was convinced these tires would handle as well as the Primacy, which is the reason I purchased these instead. Once these tires wear out I'll go back to the Primacy, which have a much smoother, quieter ride.

These are warranty replacement tires. This tire is rated at 90K miles but went almost bald at 34K. A big thanks to Kauffman for going to bat for us to Michelin and getting a good prorated warranty value. This tire rides well and handles well, but gets barely 1/3 of it's mileage rating.

I just bought a 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L that had these tires on it. The previous owner bought all 4 tires at the same time in Feb. 2013 with 77,827 miles on the van and bought a 3-year alignment to ensure even wear. On Feb. 8, 2014, it received 2 brand new replacement tires due to warranty failure of the tread wear. The van had 90,294 miles on it at that time. The tires are shot now (all of them) - Virtually unsafe to drive on. The van has 105,xxx miles on it, so 2 tires have approx. 27,600 miles on them and the other 2 tires have approx. 15,xxx miles on them. SHAMEFUL!! I have receipts where the previous owner had the alignment checked during this time so I know it wasn't a "user error" causing the premature wear. Also, during the checks/corrections documents it shows the TPMS system checks too, so I know that wasn't the cause either. We live in GA and so did the previous owner, so no extreme conditions exist (weather). The previous owner kept every receipt and invoice in a file and transferred it to me. He even had the HondaCare extended warranty when he purchased it, just to show you how meticulous and proactive/preventative he was with the van. I will take my case to Michelin, but as the 2nd owner of the vehicle/tires, they will probably tell me to "go pound sand". Despite the documents I can supply to stipulate maintenence and care for their apparent faulty product. I will not be replacing these with Michelin Defenders. I do not understand how these failed so miserably, given the history of the car and the level of care given. I would not recommend these tires to anyone. BUYER BEWARE!! Should Michelin "troll" these reviews and seek a remedy, I will gladly revise my review. I do not anticipate this course, but who knows, maybe they'll surprise me. It is a ridiculous warranty and I know no tire is going to give you 90K miles, but tires failing after 12,000 MILES??!! SHAME ON YOU, MICHELIN!!
