    These are great tires for my vehicle

          Comments about Primacy MXV4:

          This is the 3rd time I have had this set of tires on my vehicle. My Hyundai Santa Fe came with these tires, in between I bought a different brand, and this is the 2nd time I have replaced them with Michelins. The Michelins have provided the best mileage and best ware and I will not ever switch again. My vehicle is 7 years old and has over 150K miles on it. Each time I have driven with Michelin tires I have averaged over 40K per set. I have my tires rotated regularly and 4-wheel alignments done when needed; but I drive in winter weather with no hesitation is a very wintery part of the country. These are great tires!

                I have 62,000 miles on my Toyota sienna and I have gone through six primacy tires. They wear out way too soon.

                They do not last 60,000 miles as advertised.

                I would not recommend this tire to anyone.

                Very expensive and does not go anywhere near 60,000 miles.

                      Just had to replace my primacy mxv4 Michelin tires after only 28,0000 miles/5 years almost to the day. We take very good care of our cars, rotating, balancing etc. Tread was still good but tires were rotting from the inside out. My husband went with the recommendation of STS to buy the new primacy mxv4. I know the tire is rated well by consumers and have read many good reviews. I hope I get more time out of these new tires. I drive a 2003 Passat.
