Tire Pros

Quiet ride Confident handling

Tire Cons

Costly

I replaced the stock Bridgestones, which had served well for 3 years, but were due for retirement. These Defenders are a big step up in performance and comfort. Quieter on the highway and more responsive in the curves. And they have noticeably better traction on snow and ice when I drive in the mountains. I'm very pleased and will certainly consider these the next time I need tires.
