    I HAVE NEVER HAD MICHELIN TIRES BEFORE ,(THEY ARE SO QUITE) and I would not have anything else now.

    (I haven't had them that long to answer the question on wear.) but my Honda drives a lot better.

    Comments about Primacy MXV4:

    I have always bought Michelin tires and usually viewed them as the best tires made in the world. These tires came on my 2012 Honda Odyssey minivan which we have religiously maintained/rotated and taken to the dealer every 6 months. I was very surprised to see them go bald after only 32,000 miles.

    I hope they will warranty them.

    Balding tires at 35k-what?!

    Comments about Primacy MXV4:

    I purchased a replacement set of Michelin Primacy MXV4 tires for my 2011 Toyota Sienna. I have 35,764 miles, to be exact, on these tires and they are worn out! It's to the point of dangerously driving on the rainy roads in Georgia. I bought the tires from the dealership where I purchased my vehicle and have had the tires rotated and balanced on a regular basis at the same location. These tires are not even close to the advertised 60,000 miles, and now I have to go out and buy another set of expensive tires! Very upset! Michelin should change the warranty spec, or make this right for me somehow.
