        Comments about Primacy MXV4:

        When I bought my 2002 Honda Accord, Michelin (MXV4?) tires came with it (factory-installed). Loved them - handled well (including on gravel roads or even in 4-6 inches of snow), smooth ride, quiet, still got decent mileage. Went about 48,600 miles. When it was time to replace, I made the mistake of replacing them with a different brand (but same company family). Long story short, went back to Michelin (paperwork says "Exalto" but I could have sworn I went right back to the MXV4) when the lousy set wore out in 29,551 miles. Those Michelins went 53,571 miles before replacing with Primacy MXV4. Just replaced those after 66,317 miles with the new generation MXV4. Could have gone longer if not for the pending winter season, and had also started to keep a longer distance from the car in front in wet weather. Again, love that they are quiet, smooth, handles well, and my gas mileage remains decent. Definitely corners well. Good quality and if you take care of them, they take care of you. Do your rotations, pressure checks, and the ocassional alignments. Looking forward to another 60+k miles.

        ps. My ratings on wear life and fuel efficiency are based on the set I just replaced. My current tires are the new generation and are brand new so I can't give a rating on them yet.

              Comments about Primacy MXV4:

              I replaced the original equipment tires on my Chrysler 300C (V8 Rear wheel Drive) on September 22, 2010 at 34,321 miles because they were completely worn out. I had new Michelin Primacy MXV4 225/60 R18 installed at that time.

              Today at 120,719 miles, (that's 86,398 miles) I finally replaced the Primacy MXV4 tires. The wear strips were not yet showing and the tires still had reasonable wear left on them.
              The tires gave me no problems and even with 86,000 plus miles, they were still comfortable and quiet and my car still controlled like it was on rails. I did take proper care of the tires by having them periodically rotated and maintained proper tire inflation.

              I was going to replace the tires with new Primacy MXV4s but I understand they are no longer available so I purchased the Michelin Premier AS. I sure hope they give me the same kind of service that the Primacy MXV4s have.

              Keep up the good work!!!

                I just purchased a set of Primacy™ MXV4® tires for my Ford Flex and what a difference it has made navigating the slick snow covered Michigan roads.
