      Comments about Primacy MXV4:

      Bought these tires the day after Thanksgiving and drove 350 miles in horrible ice covered snowy roads. The tires handled excellent in both the snow and ice as well as on dry pavement. They cost a bit more than comparable tires of the same size but in my opinion were worth every extra penny. Extremely satisfied with the comfort of the ride and little to no road noise compared to the tires I had on it. I haven't owned them long enough to comment on tread life or fuel economy. Happy customer.

            Tires replaced after 5000 miles due to pull. Dealer described problem as "cone tires".
            Repeated alignments were tried before tires replaced and problem corrected.

            Car dealership took the hit. Rather than the hassel from Michelin

              Bought my first set of Primacy MXV4's in 2011 when my 2001 Toyota RAV4 only had 220,000 miles on it. I just put my second set on today after 95,000 more miles of carefree driving. They actually just passed inspection, but with Winter coming, I did not want to push them any longer. These tires have never let me down. We have switched all three of our vehicles to Michelins and have never looked back.
