    20,000 Miles Warranty, Not 60,000 Miles

          Comments about Primacy MXV4:

          These tires are the OEM tire on our 2013 Honda Odyssey. Currently we have approximately 12,000 miles on the Odyssey and the tire depth is down to 6/32 of an inch. At this rate I will be getting new tires at 20,000 miles. I currently have Michelin tires on my two other Hondas and have been a faithful Michelin customer over the years. I am very, very disappointed in these tires, especially on a brand new vehicle.

          3 Set. No other tire for me

                Comments about Primacy MXV4:

                I combine normal in-town driving with monthly 1600+ mile trips halfway across the country. I need tires that get good milage, don't hurt my MPG, are quiet and handle any kind of weather thrown at them. The Primacy MXV4 are hands down the best tire for all conditions that money can buy - and the good thing is they don't require a second job to buy. This set is my third, covering two vehicles: a 1999 BMW 528 and a 2009 Ford Taurus. On the first two I have gotten over 50k miles with solid, even wear, comfortable ride, and sure-footed handling.

                One phrase: "Put these on your car!"

                Best Tires Ever!

                      Comments about Primacy MXV4:

                      These are the BEST tires I have ever owned! I have owned five (5) sets for myself and my family members. Now I am about to buy yet another set for my wife's '02 Lincoln. Her present set of Primacy MXV4 tires have just under 105,000 miles, and still have nearly 5/32" tread left. They are quiet, smooth-riding, and the rolling resistance is unreal. There is no other tire I would consider buying.
