Much better then OE tires
These tires replaced the original Bridgestone Duelers on a 2011 Honda CRV EX-L FWD. Living in the Phoenix area, tread life is very short due to the extreme heat. The tires that came with the CRV only lasted 16,200 miles. That being said the tires that came on our CRV, which we bought new, were less then stellar. The dealer said on average the Bridgestone's averaged between 18,000 to 20,000 miles with timely rotations, which we did. I thought the Bridgestone's rode, handled and braked ok, but these Michelin tires are by far superior in every category to the Bridgestone tires. We are extremely pleased with the Defenders, time will tell on the tread wear. We are not seeing any drop in fuel economy, as some people have experienced.<br />It would be helpful for people who review tires, to include vehicle make, year and mileage. It helps the reader compare apples to apples.
