We're a Michelin family. I love the Defenders for my Jeep Compass and want to send a shoot out to the folks at Discount Tire on Michigan Road in Indianapolis; professional, fast and friendly! I'm at the age where I remember when a women was considered a target for any auto repairs - even cried one time when Bridgestone tires were installed on my mustang when I specifically asked for Michelin. My Dad had to straighten them out and it was an establishment where he purchased 18-wheel tires for his company. Discount Tire is to be commended for how they treat everyone equally and with a total customer service mindset. Brady is the person who helps me at DT and he is now my "tire man." Keep up the good work!! Delores Collins

This are the best tires I have owned to date. I hope these tires last at least 80,000 miles. They handle nicely in snow, wet roads, and dry roads.
