    Michelin Man is a prevaricator

          Comments about Primacy MXV4:

          This tire came on my 2011 Chrysler 200 touring car and was worn out by 21,000 miles. All scheduled service calls were kept and the tires were regularly rotated. These tires couldn't get 60,000 miles if you only drove in reverse. They did perform well when new in winter and summer and I live in Pittsburgh, Pa. where the driving is rough.

          Disappointed in wear

                I bought these tires to replace the OEM on my 2010 Honda Accord LX-P on 9/23/2012. My car had ~ 40K miles at the time. Flash forward exactly 2 years to today (9/23/2014) and I was just informed that I will need new tires before the winter - the tread is down to 4/32". My car now has 68K miles so it's only been 28K miles and the warranty on these tires is supposed to be 60K. What is interesting is I had to replace a tire 8 months ago and the tread on that one is down to 7/32" - that was only 8,000 miles ago! I keep my tires inflated with nitrogen and they are rotated regularly. They do ride and handle nicely so I would recommend them as long as you can afford to replace them often! As for me, I will be investigating a longer wearing tire....
