quiet good reputation price w/discount good warranty

Tire Cons

none so far

I've had good luck with Michelins on my motorcycles, and trust the brand. Discount Tire had them at a good price and, even though I wasn't in a hurry, they had them balanced & mounted in 45 minutes. I was also impressed by Discount Tire's service benefits.

Tire Pros

Improved MPG Reduced road noise Excellent snow & ice handling

Tire Cons

NONE

The Michelin Defender has to be the best all-season radial tire ever made! On my 2002 CRV they have reduced the road noise that is a problem with most Hondas. My gas mileage has gone up and the tires give great handling. I waited until we finally got some snow here in Colorado and I have found these Defenders have outstanding traction in snow and ice. I've had several tire brands on my CRV- original Bridgestones (junk), Yokohamas (not much better), Goodyear Aquatread (good), but the Defenders are OUTSTANDING. Thanks Discount Tire for recommending them. BUY THESE TIRES!
