    Comments about Primacy MXV4:

    I have had nothing but issues with these tires for my 2013 Honda Pilot. Even the tire guy said he's never seen the Primacy on all the other Honda Pilots that come into the store. He said it should be the Latitude. Had to replace all four at less than 25,000 miles and have had nightmare issues with the tires. This type of tire should not be on the Pilot SUV. I would have purchased the Latitude had I know this earlier. I've had constant repairs, tire pressure issues, pulling to the left, then they cross rotate it and then it was pulling to the right. Would not recommend these at all for this vehicle.

    Comments about Primacy MXV4:

    This tire came with my 2012 Toyota Sienna XLE. I have 26453 miles on it. The tires were rotated every 6 months (the car came with two year full service and tire rotation at no cost). There is no more tread left on these tires and I am getting ready to replace it. I am surprised by several reviews from people driving much longer with these tires.
