    Did I happen to get a bad batch of tires

          Comments about Primacy MXV4:

          I have been a Michelin fan since 1976 and currently run Michelins tires on four cars. I have these tires on three of my Honda Accords. They seem to be a great tire, but the tires on two of the cars have severe cracking on the sidewalls with a lot of tire life left on the tire. I have been wondering if they had some bad material on these two set of tires?

                I am completely satisfied with these tires. I have put 52,000 miles on them and they look like new. I do not rotate them because I have different size tires on front and back wheels. I have driven in the snow for the past four years and the car handles well.

                      Replaced OEM Michelins with these at 55K miles. Run smoothly quietly and with little rolling resistance on my '05 Cadillac De Ville. From the heat of the CA desert to the snow at Vail, CO these are excellent tires for a large heavy front wheel drive car. Inflated to 34psi cold, they handle better than the 30psi recommended by Cadillac. 10K miles on them now and they still look like new, even the edges on the front tires resist wear.
                      Will put them on my Escalade when the 'Stones wear out.
