23 COMMENTS

  1. Put the tires on the car today and drove it a bit over 100 miles. I immediately noticed the improvement in the comfort, noise level and grip of the tires over the ones that were replaced (with less than15K miles on them). Their grip when braking is so much better than the previous tires (manufactured by Sumi… ). I’ve yet to drive them in the rain, but expect their peformance to be far superior to the other tires which would hydroplane often, causing me to drive extremly cautiously in those conditions. My wife even mentioned that these tires were quieter and rode better than the previous set- and she rarely notices something like that. We live in FL so no snow ratings- our last dusting of snow was six years ago…

  2. I love these tires on my Ford Flex. I have been looking for a quite, smooth ride and these tires are the best of 4 sets I have had on it. Most best selling tires seem to be performance tires, but I’m not taking my Flex to the track on weekends, or zooming around town as fast as I can. Touring tires were the answer and I splurged on these, which had been reviewed as one of, if not the, quietest tires going. The Flex is no luxury sedan; it often reminds you it is more on the truck side of things. It is, overall, a quite car inside, so road noise actually was more noticeable. Previous tires, especially those made for SUVs or trucks, made that whirling tread noise you often hear on trucks as they slow down. These tires don’t make that noise and are noticeably quieter, which was my #1 priority. And, the ride is 100% improved: very smooth. Just what I’ve been looking for.What I sacrificed, which I don’t consider a big deal, was some handling characteristics. These are soft tires and there is a bit less response to steering and I noticed they make squeaky sounds when turning hard or on smooth concrete more often than my previous tires. No big deal. Not sure how the tread life will be, but I haven’t got more than 35,000 on any brand I’ve owned so far and I’d be happy with that on these.

  3. Replaced the OEM Bridgestone Ecopia H/L 422 plus tires at 16,000 miles, they were loud, rode too firmly and wearing evenly but fast. Replaced with the Primacy Tour A/S and it has totally transformed the driving dynamic of this car. There is zero tire noise on the road, bumps are absorbed nicely and completely changed my opinion of the vehicle. Handling is superb, we took maybe the slightest of hits on gas mileage but nothing significant. I always purchase Michelin tire for my vehicles and this tire doesn’t disappoint. I cannot speak to snow yet, but rain traction is fine, the car is AWD as well. Treadwear to be reported later, I had MXM4 tires on our old rogue and they went about 40,000 before needing replacement, I would be happy with that out of these.

  4. Our Infiniti QX50 (midsize SUV/crossover) came with Dunlops. These were good tires, but at 45,000 miles and five years, they became very noisy. My tire and chassis specialist recommended the Michelins we bought from Tire Rack. What a difference. The Michelins may be the best tires we have owned……very smooth ride, very quiet at highway speed and excellent handling. We are totally happy with these tires.

  5. What can I say about Michelin these are the best all season tires ever used it on my Honda Pilot EXL after replacing driver is very quiet and comfortable no worries on snow driving drive with confidence thanks — the best tires ever!

  6. Best tires for a Mercedes GL, finally a quiet, great ride, corners well, wet traction is great, today 4″ of snow, amazed at traction and braking in heavy wet snow, considering not bothering putting winter wheels and blizzaks on this year, we have driven 1500 miles in the last 4 days since install, by far the best tire so far for the gl. Will update after 10k miles. We rotate every 5k miles and rotate and road force balance every 10k miles, usually we get 40-50k out of tires.

  7. Purchased these to replace a set of Goodyear LS2 run-flats on my BMW. The ride quality is night and day. I purchased a 12 volt compressor and tire repair kit to keep in the storage compartment in case of a flat. I find this to be a far better option than compromising on the tire wear of another set of run-flats (under 30,000 miles) and the harsh ride and darting nature of the steering they bring. I couldn’t be more pleased with the Primacy Tour A/S tires so far. Steering response is as good as the LS2’s and the ride quality overall is far superior. Don’t hesitate to buy these for your Bimmer!

  8. My rating of slightly less than 10 is based mostly on the excessively high road force that I got from 2 sets of these tires and the variability between them. In terms of road force balancing, 2 would register a 6 and 2 would register 24 and 26 respectively. Vast differences and a poor ride even after 1000 miles resulting in Tire Rack replacing 2 of them. The replacements came in much lower and the car is riding perfectly now, but it was surprising that I had this experience on 2 separate sets of tires from Michelin. In the end I am 100% pleased but just not so pleased with how I had to get there. Perhaps its just one of those things, but just keep an eye out for that. The customer service and warranty from Michelin get 5 stars though so at least customers can still buy with confidence!

  9. It was time to replace the stock Hankook Optimos after 41,000 miles ( which I thought was not a bad tire despite bad ratings) , narrowed it down to the Michelin Defender’s, Premier, and the Primacy. I chose the Primacy due to the 105 Load Rating. The Defender and Premier both had a 109 rating and I did not want a sidewall too stiff that may affect the ride quality ( the Stock Hankook’s had a 104 rating).So far these tires have performed well. Ride comfort is good as well has handling. Tire seems to grip well on the road. They are rated for 55K miles, so we’ll see.

  10. 4K on these tires. They’re quiet and handle the road well. These tires are GREAT when driving on wet roads. I did it last month and hit an unexpected curve on a wet 4-lane state highway at 70+MPH. I’m here to say the tires made it through the curve with no problems. Will I do it again? No. These are great tires!

  11. After my OEM Continental run flat tires on my C300 with 19″ rims went bald after just 9,000 miles, I searched for a better, non-run flat tire. The Michelin Primacy Tour A/S has exceeded my expectations after about 1,000 miles. The ride is no longer harsh over mild bumps and potholes. The “crashing” sensation felt with run flats no longer exists. The noise level is also significantly less. I see no benefit to run flat tires, as they often lead to blowouts. Plus, even if I do get a flat, I am not going to risk driving on very expensive 19″ rims. I do not understand why Mercedes doesn’t give the option to equip your car with non-run flats, but they need to. For those thinking of switching, I highly recommended it. Although I do not know the tread life on these tires, I know they will last longer than just 9,000 miles.

  12. This is a premium tire. Glad I went with this one. They balance well, absorb road bumps, cushions excellent, handles well. The Lexus OEM factory puts these on a lot of Lexus cars & suv’s. I will buy this one again. I like a more cushion type rubber/tire, ride.

  13. Just swapped out the OEM Michelin Primacy MXV4’s. They were great tires but needed something new and the promise of a quieter, smoother tire led me to these. It’s early yet and I haven’t even driven in the rain yet, but initial impressions are very positive. Definitely quieter on the highway and they seem to ride slightly smoother as well. All in all, I’m very happy with the choice and would recommend them if quiet comfort is high on your list. Being Michelin’s, I expect excellent life and quality like I’ve had with my other Michelin tires.

  14. I only drove about 6 thousand miles on these tires so far. This did include driving from NY to Florida and driving around in Florida for about 6 weeks. No complaints so far. Tires are what I expected.

  15. Best tires i ever had . Quiet and smoother than mmx tires i had on another caddy. Had oem goodyear eagle touring on xts- since i hit 30,000 miles getting louder . I put these on and by far best tire i have had – no road noise – cannot hear anything. Handling is great – about same as oem goodyear. We will see how they wear but this is the quiet tire i have been looking for. Cannot comment on snow as i live in vegas . Car rides ,handles great, noise level is great – just what i wanted.

  16. I just installed these on my ’14 Cruze Diesel to replace a set of fairly Michelin Premier A/S tires. Michelin has really got another gem here with these tires. They are much quieter than the Premier A/S was, and they seem to hold the road and respond to steering input a lot better than the Premier A/S. I am hoping they are as good in the wet as the Premier A/S, their biggest selling point was “Safe When New, Safe When Worn” and it is very true, even at 4/32 of tread they were very good even in torrential rain. If you are looking for a good blend of road holding, quiet comfortable ride and a brand that has built a very solid reputation for making a long lasting tire I would highly suggest these over the Premier A/S.

  17. Orig equip were Pirelli Cinturato’s which I was not impressed with. After running snow tires, a set of Primacy Tour’s were installed. I had pined for a set of the Pilot Sports; I had a set on a G35, great ‘fit’ for that car, but the G35 had totally different characteristics than the Audi. I went with the Primacy for 2 reasons: the A6 is a ‘touring’ car (and a great example) – comfortable, quiet, understated, ‘cruiser’, and the Primacy cost less with rated treadwear (as expected) notably higher. I am very happy with the choice. To me these are a great fit for the car – quiet, very ‘assuring’, predictable, comfortable – very complimentary to the car’s characteristics. Road feel is very good, steering and brake inputs yield a very predictable response. During ‘spirited’ driving (limited so far) there is plenty of grip for the (vast) majority of drivers and the tires give plenty of notice that you’ve stepped over the limit. Sidewall stiffness and grip is certainly not on the Pilot level, but give the driver confidence. On the highway these tires are wonderful on the Audi – tracking is dead straight, quiet, steering and brake response is very good. Response over bumps, potholes, etc is very acceptable to my taste; they definitely do not feel ‘soft’ (much to my preference). Braking ‘feel’ is as good as the Audi will yield at times, grip is controlled and proportional, ultimate grip appears quite good – no intended (to be done) or unintended panic-stops yet. Had one time to run in heavy rain on the highway and the tires / car never complained, feedback was “we’re good, we got this”. The car reports mileage up 10+% (from snow tires), but these tires do feel very ‘smooth’. I have run many sets of Michelins – sports, touring, truck, snow (I run on both the car and truck), and have never been disappointed. As long as the realized treadwear is close to the estimated I’ll be more than pleased with the purchase.

  18. 225/60R18 tires are quieter on this vehicle than the factory 225/55R18 size. I had Michelin Premier LTX tires, they rode quietly and comfortably, but over railroad tracks or expansion joints the vehicle did “porpoise” too much. The Premier LTX has excellent resistance to hydroplaning and excellent wet braking. After 40,000 miles the Premier LTX tires became noisy, so I replaced them with 235/55R18 Pirelli Scorpion Verde A/S Plus II tires. Within 20 miles I decided to return the Pirelli’s; their compound is too slippery –when stopped there is nearly zero steering effort, as if the car is on wet ice. At 60 MPH on a mild curve the car felt like it was drifting, and when going straight I had to constantly make steering microcorrections to keep the car aimed straight. And the Pirelli’s had very little resistance to hydroplaning. In the Pirellis’ favor, I will say that if the vehicle were never driven at over 45 MPH they would be an excellent choice. They do muffle impact noises (expansion joints, railroad crossings, rough asphalt patches) very well and at under 15 MPH are virtually silent. I replaced the Pirelli’s with 225/60R18 Michelin Primacy Tour A/S tires. These track fantastically true and straight; on a straight stretch of road I just point the steering wheel straight ahead and have to make almost no microcorrections. I really feel I’m in command of the road. Unfortunately they are noisier at highway speed than the Premier LTX’s, and their resistance to hydroplaning, while much better than the Pirellis’, is not as good as the Premier LTX’s. The ideal tire for this vehicle would have the straight tracking and absence of porpoising over road jolts and overall crisp dominant feeling of road command of the Michelin Primacy Tour A/S, the jolt-muffling power of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde A/S Plus II, and the freedom from hydroplaning and quiet soft ride of the Michelin Premier LTX. Does anyone know of such a tire?

  19. hi , so on my 2013 accord exl v6 my old michelin primacy mxv4 was a very rough and you can feel the road way too much and I only put 1000 miles on them, and I switch for the premier a/s but this tire was a little better but not as comfortable so I finally spoke to michelin and the recommended the primacy tour a/s and this is an excellent tire across the board its smooth, quiet and in wet conditions they preformed at a 10 , i would advise anyone to skip all the other tires i have mentioned and just get the primacy tour as you will not regret it ,and also its available on suv and full size sadan

  20. Bought the car used (@30k miles) and put 20k miles on the Continental PureContacts that it came with, they were noisy from the time of purchase and progressively got worse, they had 5.5ish/32 left on the tread and I got sick of them. I’ve enjoyed a few Michelins (Defender, Primacy MXM4, Pilot Sport A/S 3+, Pilot MXM4 [these last ones mentioned are truly awful]) and have been a fan of the Primacy MXM4s I’ve run on other Hondas. I was interested in these updated Primacy Tour A/Ss and waited until they came available for my vehicle. The wait was absolutely worth it. I do a lot of highway driving in this car as it’s our family hauler/highway cruiser, the difference in road noise was night and day, the Continentals sounded like noisy gnarly off road tires you hear on trucks/jeeps as they drive by, these Primacy Tour A/Ss have been so quiet and smooth. The hefty car remains planted to the road. What prompts me to write this review was after a longer drive I’ve done plenty of times in the car in question: San Diego to the Bay Area. The recent drive with the new tires was bliss with respect to NVH, my wife and I can actually have a conversation in the car with her in the back seat. Previously, the in cabin noise was getting so unbearable even with the ample amount of tread left, I had to part ways with the Contis. The Crosstour they were installed on is overall improved: luxuriously quiet, smooth ride, good braking when I get cut off by your usual CA driver. If my wife can notice the immense improvement in NVH and other areas that’s saying something. I noticed the MPG might be slightly decreased as is expected with new vs worn tires. I recommend these tires (Primacy Tour A/S not the Primacy A/S) as a good successor to the Primacy MXM4s, I like the updated sidewall design as well.

  21. These tires are replacement for the original equipment that came on our Infiniti QX50. They are quieter, more responsive and all around better tires. My installer recommended these over the Yoko’s I was going to buy and I’m glad I followed his advice.

  22. Replaced the original Continentals on the vehicle after 29k miles. The QX50 is a RWD compact SUV with 325HP. The OEM tires produced a lot of road noise and, when worn, quite a bit of oversteer in tight corners. The Michelins are significantly quieter than the OEM tires. They’re still new with only 1k miles, so traction isn’t any issue, although we didn’t buy these expecting a high performance tire. These Michelin Primacy Tour AS tires were on sale for a great price that I couldn’t pass up after reading the previous buyer’s review comments. We’ll see how these hold up after a couple of summers in TX. So far, so good though.

  23. 51K of mostly city driving in FL. Very nice, if not great, tires. Quiet on 90% of roads. Recently drove it from FL to KY and back; smooth, very quiet and responsive-esp. in the Sport mode. Would probably buy again, but would consider excellent touring tires that see no snow as our last dusting of snow was five years ago :-). Bought this set of 4 from Tire Rack and had a local shop install them then align the front end.
