Anyone have Michelin Defender tires and find them noisy? My daughter had a set recently put on her 10 Yaris by Discount Tire and then a second set but still complains about the noise.

Mine are quiet and smooth. Very much so but they use more fuel than the previous low rolling resistance tires.

I put a set of 265/70/17's on my 4Runner last week to replace the OE Dunlops. I've run the various iterations of these same tires for twenty years on several trucks and these might be quieter than any of the others. I put 1700 miles on them camping through BC, and at times I thought they were nearly silent.

Some roads are noisier than others.

I would think a 2010 Yaris isn't a particularly quiet car anyway.

Maybe you should drive the car and see if the noise could be a wheel bearing on it's way out.

Nope, not me.

Agree that Yaris probably has zip for sound deadening; therefore:

I have heard/read the these new Michelin Defenders can be noisy. IDK what people are comparing them to as most Michelin tires that I've had were quiet.

Thank you kind sir gentleman.

Both Defender models, old and new have been reviewed with positive comments about being quiet.

If another set of tires is traded out, I would go with the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring. My brother has those on his Camry and they nice and quiet. It like an entirely different car and it had Michelins before that.

Consumer Union said this tire produces less noise than some.

Noisy Michelin Defender tires should be redesignated as Offender tires.



Yeah, my career in stand-up didn't fare very well.

Michelins are the greatest tires in the world. They are quiet...don't dry rot, and are cheap.

They can't possibly give you any issues.
