Ordered these through Amazon, and had them mounted, balanced, and purchased the road hazard warranty through our local Tire Barn; and am very happy with the lower rolling resistance that is giving us about an extra 1-2 MPG advantage, the handling is great on both dry and wet pavements of either cement or blacktop, even on rough gravel surfaces. We have been driving on them for several months now, and like the way they feel and handle on interstate, county and city roadways, and feel very sure and easy to drive with on ascending and descending sharp winding curves, and sloping gradients.

I would definitely recommend these to anyone wanting superior handling, longer tread wear, and just a great overall driving tire.

These tires were used to replace Michelin Symmetry tires on our ancient 2001 Honda Odyssey with 200K miles on it. They made a huge difference in handling. Granted, the Symmetrys were legally bald, but the handling is better than any tires we ever had. The other great thing is how quiet the Defenders are. In summary, they have revolutionized the ride and our old Odyssey feels almost like new. A great tire.

(after 1500 miles)Very quiet, great ride, all 4 balanced well with very little weight. Mileage has improved over first 3 tanks about 1 MPG on distance driving.

I have very goos experience with Micheline pneus on other cars,I owned before and they have a very long running life ( 70.000 miles ),but this time I am a little bit disapointed. The feeling is "very hard" on second class roads . I dont know the reason ,but the Original tires I had before have been much softer and more confortable ( Bridgestone )

Exactly what I wanted, after measuring my existing tire treads this one was a match at about half the cost of a new tire. A new tire would have killed my gas mileage and affected my other tires wear pattern. I recommend to anyone who blows out a tire, buy used so you do not have to buy new tires in pairs or fours. Great job bestusedtires!

In Dry heat, heavy rain, etc. These tired performed like a champ. Good grip, good handling, etc. Definately a perfect all season tire
Vehicle used was a 2008 Toyota Sienna
