        Comments about Primacy MXV4:

        My primacy MXV4's lasted me about 90,000 miles! I drive a Subaru Impreza. Most of the miles are over a long distance, back and forth between the San Francisco Bay Area and Lake Tahoe. The tires handled very well in Snow and Ice. No chains needed...ever! The tires handled well on wet roads, hairpin turns at speed, heavy rain storms, and dirt roads. Also went on a few long road trips up and down the Pacific Coast and from California to Wyoming to Colorado to Utah back to Wyoming and then back to Cali. From the tire's perspective, I was paying less than a penny per mile. I actually had two of these tires plugged after running over a nail and a screw at about the 15K and 50K mile markers.
        My MPG's were well above Subaru's estimate for my car.

        I would have bought these tires again, but just purchased the Premiers a few days ago knowing they have a 60K mile warranty. The technology looks good to me and I'll be living up in the mountains from now on.

              I just purchased these tires. Incredibly quiet running tire. It really does significantly reduce road noise. I wouldn't have believed how well it can do this. I don't know how they can design a tire to be so quiet but all I can say is I am really enjoying my sound system now.

                    Comments about Primacy MXV4:

                    I purchased a new 2012 Honda Pilot in April of 2012 that came with Michelin Primacy Tires. 2 years and 43,000 miles later, they are worn out & failed my recent inspection. I had the tires rotated every 7,000 miles at the dealer, & there were no off road miles. Every mile was highway or around town. Very disappointing, not what I was exptecting from Michelin. The service tech at the Honda dealership advised that this is common for this particular tire.
