    Excellent tires

    5 / 5
    By Sillyduk from - Mazda - All-Season

    I bought these tires and 4 days lafter we had 6 to 8 inches of snow . They performed excellent. I passed a few people in the ditch.

    So Loud

    1 / 5
    By Honda Civic from Ontario - Honda Civic - Summer

    Very disappointed with these tires. I'm used to driving with winter tires which are normally somewhat noisy. I had the defender tires installed for the summer and I cannot hear the radio now. Everyone that rides in my car comments and asks what is that noise. Checking out other reviews and noticed others also commenting about the noise, but it does not seem to be a common theme. Not sure what is the problem with the set of Michelin's I have.
