Very hard rubber with very mediocre traction...
So that means what with respect to what? The stock tires on the Leaf or the Michelins? Also, wouldn't you want a LRR tire over a NON-LRR tire (when available)?
Treadwear = 820, Traction = A, Temperature rating = B
By comparison, Ecopias are 400 A A
The MXV4 = 620 A A
So, traction is rated "A" for all 3. All else being equal, the Defenders have about double the treadwear as the Ecopias, the MXV4 falls in the middle. The Defenders have somewhat lower temperature rating than the other 2.
