"Bought this when it got discount at 130 off for a set. This is probably the best tires i have used on my prius, The car feel more solid and less vibration compare to bridgestone ecopia i had before. It outperformed all type on most aspect except on MPG, i noticed my avg mpg drop 2-3mpg. Before i purchased this tires, i ask Michelin CS about the different than the predecessor Michelin defender, the new model has higher tread rating and load. The predecessor were highly rated on tire-rack. Check tire-rack for reviews and test result for defender XT...."
"These tires are very good on the ice roads, as they contain flubber balls inside to make them slide and spin while braking or curbing easily. I adore these tires and can recommend it to others. They performed very good 2 winters will see how they handle this winter.
"I like Michelin on my Mercedes as I bought it with them and I like how it rides, how comfortable it is, and how it handles on different types of roads. I like big tires, so it is important for me to have a quiet ride with safe tires. These tires seem to satisfy my demands on wet/dry roads. I really love these tires and can recommend them"
I heard from many of my friends that Michelin doesn’t have good winter tires, but two years ago I bought LTX Winter for my Toyota and had to admit that it performs great on my car. I had Blizzak previously on my car, which are better and more expensive, but these ones are okay especially on wet/ice roads. I will buy them again
