As usual these Michelin tires are solid performing tires. They handle well, run quiet and seem to have great traction. I like them very much.

Excellent tires. Usually get 75 more miles to a tank of gas. Excellent on dry conditions or in snow. Quiet on the roads and corners are a breeze. I love my tires!

I had the equivalent Michilens on prior and got superior everything on them. I got close to 150,000 miles on them (they were just getting old had plenty of tread when I changed to the defenders).
