Great Tire

Tire Cons

We just bought a second set of these tires for the Grand Caravan because the first set purchased is doing so well on an Impala. Also, I would like to express how impressed I am with the great service and good prices at the Waite Park, MN store. We took the caravan in just before a snowstorm when the store was crazy busy and all appointments were full but they STILL got the job done with their usual efficiency and courtesy. They also take care of me after the sale with free rotation and balancing plus they honor the mileage warranty if you maintain the tires properly. I always leave this store happy with a feeling of money well spent. This is customer service as it should be and as I remember it from the good old days when it was more common. Thanks guys!

Excellent ride. Very good handling.

The tires improved the ride and handling characteristics of my stiffly-sprung fifty-year-old Corvette. The tires contribute to to a great driving experience.

Defenders are a huge improvement over previous tires. Soft ride, literally no road noise and traction in snow is great. Would highly recommend these tires. Great tires are worth the higher cost!!
