Tires wear down.
Stopping performance should not.
Even as they wear, MICHELIN® tires are built to maintain wet braking performance and handling throughout the life of the tire — because performance shouldn’ t depend solely on the depth of your tread.
We partnered with Jason Fenske from Engineering Explained to show you how MICHELIN® Premier® A/S tires perform when it matters most.

Tire Design Features can Change Drastically as the Tire Wears.
Your tires will wear down — braking performance should not. This is where tire design comes in. MICHELIN® Premier tires feature EverGrip™ Technology and expanding and emerging rain grooves, which provide exceptional grip and maintained traction as the tire wears.

*Even when half-worn, the MICHELIN® Premier® A/S tire still stops shorter on wet roads than leading competitors' brand-new tires.**
**Safe refers to wet braking, wet handling and hydroplaning resistance when tires are new and worn to 5/32" . All tires eventually wear out and should be replaced. Half-worn Premier tires are safe because of EverGrip Technology which combines an evolving tread with a high traction compound for enhanced wet-braking capabilities. Based on internal wet braking tests from 40 and 50 MPH versus new Goodyear® Assurance® Tripletred™ A/S tires in sizes 235/55R17 99H and P215/60R16 94V, new Bridgestone® Turanza™ Serenity Plus tires in sizes 235/55R17 99V and 215/60R16 95V; using the MICHELIN® Premier® A/S tires in sizes 235/55R17 99H and 215/60R16 95V buffed to 5/32" of tread on 2012 Cadillac CTS and 2013 Honda Accord vehicles. Actual on-road results may vary.
