  1. These were OEM tires on my Kia Turbo Optima. The first 15-20,000 miles they were great but then they developed significantly noticeable tread noise that is loudest around 20 MPH. Maybe its just the most noticeable at that speed since road noise is minimal but it was loud enough to be distracting and noticed by riders who at times commented. I will never own this specific model of tire again simply due to tread noise. The life of the tire is also disappointing. I’m replacing them at just over 50,000 miles and I am not aggressive when it comes to starting and stopping. Hope this info helps others.

  2. These were the OEM tire on my 2015 MKZ. I’ll keep it short. From a performance standpoint they were good on dry. Fine on wet roads. Some cornering stability issues. But overall good. I never drove them in the snow. My main complaint is treadwear. At 3 years and 28500 miles the tires were completely shot. Two were bald two had 1/32. Luckily they didn’t charge me for new tires when I turned in my lease. I had all scheduled maintenance included so it was done in a timely manner. I know I take corners a bit fast and can be a bit agressive with the accelerator but this seems like laughably bad life out of a premium Michelin tire. If I had to guess they probably hit 3/32 tread wear at less than half the warranteed mileage. And the roads in my town were in very good shape too. I just don’t get it.

  3. These were OEM on my Lincoln MKZ. Very comfortable ride and very quiet. Dry handling was solid although there was some weird cornering effects. Overall a mostly refined tire. My main complaint is treadlife. The MKZ isn’t a burner but I drove the turbo somewhat aggressively. I take corner fast and brake harder then normal. But the tires were completely spent at 28000 miles. two were at 1/32. One and two were completely bald. My scheduled maintenance on the car was free so I did that religiously. I know these aren’t 80k tires but I was really disappointed for what’s supposed to be a premium Michelin product. I wouldn’t buy these if given the choice.

  4. Stock OEM low rolling resistance tires which noticeably reduce the cornering performance of the Model 3 when it’s dry. When the road is wet, things get interesting…it’s super easy to kick the rear tires out under moderate acceleration. My relatively top heavy Buick Regal GS with 245/45/ZR18 (not stock) Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires can easily outperform the Model 3 (outside of dry straight line acceleration) due to these tires. Will not be purchasing these again.

  5. They ride well, but they are ridiculously expensive, and the tread life greatly disappointed me. I’m not a terribly aggressive driver even in my Model 3, but after only 22,000 miles, I’m already down to 3/32″ in back and 4/32″ in front and need to replace them soon. I’ll be switching to the Michelin CrossClimate+ for better snow/ice performance and (I hope!) better tread life.

  6. I’m sorry but I find these to be awful tires. I drive 99% highway and while these tires are quiet, pretty decent dry traction and comfort after only 23k miles they’re shot. We traction is sketchy now and u will absolutely replace them before winter hits. Considering how absurdly expensive these are I’d never buy them again.

  7. I’m a spirited driver in my Tesla. I’ve owned BMW and Audi and Porsche. I’ve owned Pirelli and Michelin and Continental, etc. Tires? These are OEM but they need changing at 11,650 miles. True I did not rotate these so maybe they’d go 17,000 if I had rotated but six months is too quick. I never track this car it’s really just spirited. They are not really great in any aspect. Good for noise and good for control but not really for ride comfort. I’d never choose these. Unless you’re stuck with these id advise stay away. Only worse tire is run flats.

  8. Ok. Just replaced a set of Michelin Premiers with a new set of Primacy’s. Mileage on the Premiers was just under 60k. I could have reached the 60K+ miles range but the rain has set in here in the PNW. So a new set of Primacy’s were installed and so far they seem to be at par or or even a little bit better than the Premiers. The Primacy has a 55k warranty, just under the 60k of the Premiers. So far the Primacy’s are a little more quiet than the Premiers and the feel in the steering wheel seems to be almost effortless during a turn. As usual, they will be rotated as per MFG specs, the front end will be aligned if there is the slightest feel of a pull or sway and they will be re-balanced as needed. Yes, i do take my tires seriously since this is my wife’s car and her safety is paramount. Her first drive to Eugene on the new tires was yesterday and the rain did decide to let loose. She stated that the tires never at any moment ever felt like they were not in contact with the ground and she felt like the tires effortlessly guided the car through her drive without any issues. My comment was “well they are new and that is what I would expect”.

  9. These have been the shortest-lived tires I’ve ever owned. After 20,000 miles, the treads are down to 5/32″. Michelin won’t warranty them until the treads are down to 1/16″- roughly the thickness of a quarter. That’s nearly bald. Living in the Midwest where it snows, thats unacceptable. I cannot let the tires get to that point, otherwise I’d end up in the ditch or something.

  10. I bought my vehicle used with 13000 miles on it, and these are the original tires. Well now I am at 40700 miles and they are down to 3/32nds tread depth. I looked into the warranty, and it is good, guaranteed not to reach 2/32nds in 6 years or 55000 miles, but it is impossible for me to make a claim since I am the 2nd owner of the vehicle, even though I have had every rotation and alignment done according to the vehicle service schedule. Hot Garbage.

  11. At 15,000 miles my tires are down to 3/32. They need to be replaced in 2,000 miles or so. These tires are scary on anything but dry roads. Forget snow…Stay home and of f the road. I have even wear, it’s just that the tread is down to nothing. These tires sell for over $235.00 each…Really? Over priced! Don’t buy these tires, you’ll be sorry. PS: I’m a 66+ female, and I don’t hot-dog around town.

  12. I was surprised at many of the poor reviews I’ve read on this tire with regards to tread life, wet road traction, and traction in the snow. My only complaint with this tire is noise … a little on the loud side in my opinion. On my last drive from West Virginia to Maryland, much of that time in heavy rain while driving down the mountain side in WV mostly at 70 mph to 85 mph, I never felt any disconnect with the road. I also drove through deep snow after a major blizzard here in MD in 2016 – before the plows were out. Never got stuck which amazes me even to this day – more than 3 years later. My last comment is on tread life. 42,000 miles + with the original tires the car came with off the showroom floor end of July 2015 are now down to 3/32 so obviously I’m in the market for a new set of tires – hence; the reason I’m reading tire reviews. 😉 I’m not looking to purchase another set of the MXM4’s due to the noise (and price) but i do want the tread life, traction (wet, dry, snow) that I found in the MXM4’s. Previously owned two BMW’s, latest being an `08 535i (twin turbo, staggered wheel config (sports package)) … just to mention that I have owned a well mannered aggressive vehicle.

  13. I ran across these tires in my search and was surprised at rating, so I wanted to give my input. I have had to replace 2 of the original tires due to nails, but have still retained 2 of the original tires at 85K miles. I’ve been very satisfied with this tire overall, mostly due to the excellent treadwear (I rotate my tires every 7,500 miles). Unfortunately, it is time to replace them, but I will definitely be getting another set.

  14. Overall, these tires performed quite well in overall year-round driving in New England. I never had any handling problems with them, even in light to moderate snow. My only complaint is that the tires were rather noisy. And as they approached the end of their life, they became quite a bit noisier. I’ve replaced them with a set of Vredesteins, which are much quieter.

  15. Decided on a set of these tires after researching and reading reviews and seeing that they were OE for my vehicle. Great performance overall in spirited driving. However I will not be purchasing another set of these after them being down to 5/32 of after about 8500 miles. Definitely expected better being michelins and for the price that I paid for them

  16. Shortly after my wife and I bought a used accord for her close to a year ago we put new tires on in October. We chose Michelin MXM4 235/40R19 96v for our car they have handled and driven great! My wife got a flat the other day and we bought the extra warranty on these tires, so I met her and took it in to get the flat fixed. I’ve had them rotated once in the 13k miles she has put on them. When we got to the tire shop they came out and measured all our tread depths, the back two were at 3/32 and 4/32!! They start at 10/32 and they have a 55k mile warranty on them and we’re 1k for a set of 4! After this set and the last set of Michelin tires I had on my truck I have quickly lost faith in the brand, this being after my family using different tires of theirs on different cars with good luck, I guess they don’t take the same pride through out the line up! I will not be buying another set for a long time after this!!

  17. This is the OE tire on my MKZ. I currently have just under 60,000 miles on the vehicle and have gone through 2 full sets of these tires. They are not very quiet and wear out very fast. I will not be buying these again.

  18. Literally the worst tires ever. These came OEM on my Honda Civic. I currently have 82,000 miles on my car and have to replace these tires for the third time. At this rate I’m getting and avg of 35,000 miles on a set. This last set lasted me only 10,000 miles. So now, I need a 4th set of tires , I absolutely refuse to buy these again.

  19. These are used mostly on Interstate highways with some city miles running errands, and 8 miles per trip on gravel. Did a 6,000 mile road trip in 7/2019 on these tires. While driving downhill through Vail on a very rutted concrete I-70 during a horrific deluge proved their wet traction and hydroplaning resistance. Other cars were either all over the road while spraying huge waves of water, or pulling off onto the shoulder. I safely cruised around them enjoying perfect stability. Magnificent performance!

  20. First time I had RunFlats. Came with ’16 S-Class MB. Fronts wore out prematurely due to dealer screw up. Rears with high wear only 26000 before need now to replace. Worst issue is the tire noise the last 10000 miles is unbearable on all surfaces. An S-Class should be quiet as all my previous ones on non-runflats. Will carry a spare rather than buy again. Pirelli Scorpion Verde on my ML350 are quieter than the run flats on the S.

  21. These tires are good in terms of noise, traction, either dry or wet (not excellent, but good enough), and so on so forth, but mine got worn out in slightly less than 18K miles. Which is ridiculously low. My main route is taking kids to the gym back and forth so I don’t drive aggressively and not quite sure why it got worn out that quickly. I`m certainly not having Michelins on any of my cars because I know they won’t last long.

  22. These Michelin’s are the OEM tire for my Lincoln. At 39k, I’m down to 4/32″ of tread depth, and I probably could push it another 5k and get close to the expected treadlife. I drive my Lincoln like a true sports sedan and these tires have performed well in dry conditions. The noise has increased as they have aged. They have felt safe in wet conditions. HOWEVER they are absolutely frightening in even the lightest amount of snow. They are easily the worst tire in winter conditions I’ve ever had in 28 years of driving. I could not stop or control my car even when driving at super conservative low speeds; the only thing that prevented me from wrecking my car was the luck of there not being another car at traffic lights, curves, etc. The car behaved in winter conditions as if I had summer tires on…. Living in the Mid-Atlantic, I won’t be buying this tire again as I need better winter performance out of an All-Season tire. TL/DR : great tire for 3 seasons, worst of all time for winter.

  23. I do not recommend this tire. It’s quiet, it rides nice, rolling resistance is low and dry performance is outstanding. No issues with wet performance either. So if you live in the desert or where it never snows, stop reading, buy this tire.If you’re still reading and do live where it snows, purchase these despite my warning and at your own peril. Light snow, heavy snow, ice … all require constant white knuckling. There is no lateral grip, there is no longitudinal grip, braking is always a disaster. Last winter I had 24000 miles on these tires, and they were downright scary in inclement weather. This September I have 34000 miles on these tires (and 5/32 thread depth). Normally this would mean plenty of wear left in a tire (and in dry climates this might be true), but I’m not willing to go through another winter of puckering every time I need to turn the steering wheel or use the brake pedal. I drive many rental cars/suv’s with other tire brands in inclement weather, the MxM4’s absolute lack of winter performance is not normal.If I lived where it never snowed, these tire would be a 5 of 5. But, I don’t. We have freezing rain, snow and ice and these tires are an absolute disaster in inclement conditions. That’s why I’m replacing these well before they’re worn.

  24. Worst Michelin tire ever. Have used Michelin tires almost exclusively since the 1970 and am a Michelin fan, but these are horrible. In my opinion, they were downright dangerous in wet and light snow–little or no control at times. I was afraid to use them when roads were icy or after recent heavy snowfalls, instead a instead driving a nine year old Fusion Hybrid equipped with Michelin Xice tires (a great tire for winter conditions). Handling with the Primacy was mediocre at best. The ride quality was torture–it’s a wonder that I didn’t damage any suspension components from the abuse they took from the tire’s failure to mitigate poor road conditions. The Primacy tires were OEM tires from the factory, so I had few options (Continentals were available on a larger rim, which I didn’t want). I finally replaced the Primacy tires with the Michelin CrossClimate+ tire after less than two years when the OEMs wore out at 20K. Glad I stayed with a Michelin product after one bad experience. The CrossClimate+ handles better, rides smoother and I anticipate will be excellent this winter.

  25. OEM tire from manufacture, decent ride and low noise for the most part. Tire does seem to spin a lot when going uphill or accelerating through a corner from stand still. Can’t complain about wet traction since I have not had hydro plane nor slipping.
