Tire Pros

Best tires I've owned. These replaced Michelin Cross Terrains, these are far superior. Excellent tire so far.

Tire Cons

None. All tires should be this good!

Used on 2009 Mercury Mariner Premier AWD. Previous tires were Michelin Cross Terrains, but the Defender is far superior to those. Eliminated tar strip noise and "bobble head" ride. With Cross Terrains I needed to reduce air pressure to get a satisfactory ride in the short wheelbase Mariner, but Defenders are good right from the start with normal air pressure. By the looks of the tread, winter (Michigan) driving will be no problem. Spend the extra cash, don't be disappointed with a lesser tire (I did that once, regretted every mile)
