I know many people adore Michelin tires, but my experience with these Michelin Defender tires were not as good as I expected. They make much noise, especially on icy roads, and don’t handle that good. I could not recommend.

They aren't like usual michelin, they are ok for my little offroad Land Rover, but i expect more comfort from those tires!
