    NO GOOD TIRES!!!

          Comments about Primacy MXV4:

          I have been a Michelin customer since 1978 on my first Toyota corolla. I have always been happy with the quality of their products until now. The MXV4 tires are the worst tires have ever owned on any of my vehicles! These tires were installed on my 2008 Avalon Ltd. in Feb. 2011 and after only 21,000 miles in three years these tires need to be replaced. Michelin's 60,000 mile warranty for these tires isn't worth the toilet paper it was written on. Not to mention the $$$ cost. My faith and reliability in Michelin has been truly shaken to the core. Save yourself and DO NOT BUY THESE TIRES OR PUT THEM ON YOUR CAR EVEN IF THEY'RE FREE!!

          Don't last as long as the should

                Comments about Primacy MXV4:

                These are the tires that came with my new 2012 Toyota Camry. I can't really complain at all about how they worked while new, but tire life is a real concern and has driven my rating low.

                They're now worn out and need to be replaced. I've got about 35,000 miles on my car, and these are supposed to have a 60,000 mile warranty. So, I've gotten a little over half the life out of them that I should have gotten. All maintenance and rotations were performed as scheduled at the dealership, so this was not due to negligence on my part.

                I primarily looked these up to see the cost as I would not consider replacing the existing tires with the same ones given the early wear out. I was surprised to see the supposed 60,000 mile warranty and relatively high cost considering the short life of the tire. These factors make this tire even more disappointing.

                I would not purchase these again or recommend to anyone else.

                      This is the only set of Michelin tires that have ever been less than top notch quality. They were fairly good (although hydroplanes easily) the first 20000 miles though wear level was excessive. They are now worn out at 38000 miles. I am still considering Michelins for the replacements since I have always had very good fortune with them.
