  1. I’ve ran Michelin’s for years on my Honda Accords and loved the handling and never had issues with handling in the rain. They seemed to be very quiet as well. However, I’ve always noticed I never got anywhere NEAR the rated mileage. Today I checked my tires and 3 of 4 were down to 3/32″ and the other was 4/32″. When I checked the mileage when purchased vs. current mileage, I had only put 15,1000 miles on them!!!! Well below the rated 60,000.

  2. Bought these to replace the stock original Michelins with the expectation of the same performance and mileage of the originals. I’ve always paid that little extra to purchase Michelins. These tires performed extremely well in all conditions, both wet and dry. However, the tread wear is not all that great. At 47,000 miles, I’m at 3/32″ on all four. I figure another 5000 and they’re gonna have to be replaced. I’m now looking for a better replacement for these. Top dollar for 60K mile Michelins? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

  3. This is not about performance, no beef there, this is all about longevity. I’m a pretty loyal customer. When I find something I stick to it. I grew up on Potenzas and I really liked those a lot. To be honest, when I was younger I never really paid attention to tread life. In an effort to save money, I switched to Kumho Ecsta and was very happy with the handling, but not impressed with the tread wear. My dad is an ASE Master Mechanic, and so he was always able to install my tires for me, so I didn’t really care how long they lasted. That was until he (along with everyone else) was banned from working on their own vehicles due to “liability concerns” in the shop. At that point I needed to find a tire that would last a good long time. After a long search I landed on the Michelin A/S’s due to the great reviews. For me, I couldn’t be happier with the handling wet or dry. I even did a whole winter of North Idaho snow with them. However, after forking out $700+ for these coupled with their 640 Treadwear rating I expected a tire I would get a good long life out of. Since we no longer had the option of swapping tires every couple years. Well to my shock and dissatisfaction, I’ve gotten 21,000 miles out of these, and they are completely bald. I’ve taken them past the tread bars just to get this much. Realistically they should have been replaced at around 17k or 18k miles. I find this to be completely unacceptable. Before I realized how short the lifespan would be on these, I convinced my buddy to get a set for his wife’s Toyota Sienna. They got 14,000 miles out of that set. I can buy Kumho’s that perform the same and last longer for $70 less per tire. Why would anyone go with these again? Very disappointed with my “premium name brand” experience. My dad has his own shop again, so I’m heading back to Kumho.

  4. I have an 80 mile a day commute and these tires have not let me down or failed to perform once. I’ve driven them in anything from hurricanes to 6 inches of snow and I am really happy with them. They’re quiet, they grip, they don’t give me any problems at all. The best set of tires I’ve ever owned. I’ll be replacing them with the same tires when they need to be.

  5. Purchased these tires for my 2007 Toyota Matrix – “Grey Swan”. It is a second car and has 170,000 trouble-free miles on in. The Gripping Power – when wet is very very good. Snow – very very good. The problem is i’m getting close to 1/2 tread wear left. Im like OMG! 8k and already almost 1/2 gone?Then the blowout – COMPLETE sidewall failure -…….. did not expect this on a premium tire. Wish I could attach a pix of this on this review, but cannot. You could put your finger through the opening in the sidewall. This happened 2 days ago running about 30mph down a straight good road, and I’m lucky to be alive. Good process with Tire-Rack’s Road Hazard – easy to figure out what to do – I purchased a new tire, had a shipped to an installer. And filed a easy claim. In about a week or two i’ll get full purchase price for the tire back.

  6. I ordered a set of these to replace a set of Michelin Primacy with similar wear rating. With not much mileage on it, I feel it performs the same as the older Primacy but wet traction is certainly better with more tread on this set. The Primacy set lasted about 60K which is about right given the tread wear rating of 620. The Primacy replaced the original Michelin MXV4 which was fine but did not last as long, about 52K before I had to replace it before the winter came. I hope this set will last as long as the last Primacy set I had on the Accord V6, which is heavier up front. I rotated my tires regularly each year so the tread wear is very even front and back. If people has much less tread wear on their front tires, they should have rotated the tires more often.

  7. Tires are in my case all around great except tread wear. tires grip the road very aggressively both being in wet and dry road surface, braking is the same with slightly less on wet but that is to be expected, so for that i rate them the same wet or dry.Snowy situations, the whole reason behind this purchase, these tires are night and day over the top compared to the original bridgestone potenza tire. These tires perform as the reviews show, if i had a choice to buy these or snow tires i would buy these tires again,we dont get much snow here being my point. But when we do this meant the difference of getting out of the driveway or just spinning the tires and staying home. Tire compound to me is a little soft, is probably why my millage was not so great. traction and safety was 100% covered so guess tread wear was not of my highest concern at that point.I would defiantly recommend this tire to anyone who is worried about all season tires and all season travel.

  8. Tires only have 2/32nds tread left with less than 25k miles, only drive about7,500 miles per year. Bought them 3years ago and the tread is dry and hard as a rock. These tires do NOT perform well in rain after they wear as advertised. Do NOT waste your money on these!

  9. It’s time for a positive review of this tire. Tread at 6/32 all around; started at 8/32. This is my 3 season tire as I use Michelin x-ice in the winter. A very good blend of comfort and traction. I have had a few sets of these, and I think they really do maintain their wet traction. I know I’ve got good traction down to 4/32, don’t have to guess. I know that tread life is a relative weak point, and that other brands have caught up to their wet traction. But when they first came out their wet traction was AMAZING for a touring tire. You don’t get something for nothing,folks.

  10. First couple of months they seemed good–much better than the OEM tires when we bought it. As the miles accumulated on the tires, and the tread wore down, they became really bad in wet conditions. I had some Altimax tires on another car before this and they were better all around than these tires. I could never spin the altimax tires on the other car, even though it had more power, whereas these tires spin with a little throttle input. Also, the Altimax were much better in light and deep snow and on ice. These are hazardous. I used to put michelin on one of my vehicles because that was the only decent tire that fit so I thought I’d try these. Bad decision.

  11. I’ve owned about 5 sets of these Michelin Premier AS tires over the years on various vehicles and is my go to tire for my daily driver cars and one vintage Porsche. All have performed exceptionally well for the category that they are in. These tires are quiet, wear well, stay in balance, excellent in wet conditions and ride nicely. Certainly not as sporty of a tire as a high performance summer tire, but these are not designed for use on a sports car on a track. You get what you pay for and these tires are a very high quality product.

  12. I immediately replaced the OEM tires on my hybrid with these ( They were strictly designed for fuel saving but they were squirrely on the road.) The Premier AS were a noticeable improvement from the start. After 50k miles I’ve started to notice a little more slippage and hydroplaning in extremely wet conditions. Time to replace them at 52k, I ordered the same.

  13. The Premier A/S tires were installed to replace the original factory tires which at 30,000 miles had very little traction in the wet. When installed, the Premier A/S provided fantastic wet performance. No sliding when accelerating, during cornering or when braking. Road noise and comfort were good. Dry acceleration, cornering and braking were very good to excellent. Bit concerned the tires when new had only 9.5/32″ of tread depth, Vs most tires that have around 11/32″. But liked the fact that as tires wore down the rain grooves became wider. My driving style is 80% easy, with 20% spirited. Now here is my update 2 years later with 30,000 miles on these Premier A/S tires: Wet traction on acceleration has dropped off, much easier to spin tires. Cornering and braking, wet and dry, still seems very good… close to as they were when new. Finding the dry traction on acceleration is much less. The tires spin for 1-2 revolutions when taking off briskly from a stop. I had the tires rotated every 5,000 miles and all 4 have worn evenly, BUT tread depth at 30,000 miles down to 4/32″. So tires seem to wear a bit more quickly than I expected. At this rate will not be getting the suggested 60,000 miles from this set. Happy with the performance for 2 years so would consider buying these again but am researching if better options are now available.

  14. Absolutely horrendous tires. We are at 30,000 miles and they are already at the wear bar, and the center of the tread is starting to chuck off. The ” Expanding Rain Grooves ” do absolutely nothing and stay sealed off / closed up. the more wear they get, the louder they are as well… I doubt they will last to 40,000 miles, and I am already looking to replace them..Disappointing as Michelin used to command the price they cost… not anymore…. Rotated and road force balanced every 5k. 4 wheel alignment every 10k miles. They may work better on lighter cars, but DO NOT put these on your Cherokee / midsize SUVs….

  15. After my OEM Bridgestone Duelers wore out, I did extensive research to find the best tires. My initIal priorities were tread life and comfort, so my local tire dealer recommended the Michelin Defender LTX. These tires were great, but I switched them out because the the cornering was worse than with the Bridgestones and the ride was bumpy possibly due to the deeper treads and tread pattern. Also, while it may not matter to many, I did not like the look of the tire. It looked like a tire suited for a pickup truck or large SUV and took away from the look I wanted. After putting about 1000 miles on the Premier A/S, I am thrilled I made the switch. The tires handle well, I can feel the road, but the tire is still comfortable, and the tires look much more appropriate for my car. I was very hesitant to purchase these tires due to all the reviews about poor tread wear. I am still concerned, but after realizing how much handling and aesthetics matter to me, I have no regrets about running the Premiers. Through my research, I could not find the “perfect” tire. Each tire has good and bad reviews, so I ultimately went with the tire that felt the best and whose reviews supported the ride quality. The biggest knock on the Premiers is the tread wear, so I’ll see how I feel in 20-30k miles if and when these tires wear down early.

  16. What a disaster these tires have been. The good: wet traction and hydroplaning resistance. Reasonably quiet, good dry traction. The bad? Tread life is absolutely abysmal, easily the worst of any tires I’ve ever purchased. These were regularly rotated and balanced and aligned every 6 months (every 4K miles). They’ve worn evenly but the tread is virtually gone after SEVENTEEN THOUSAND miles, they were at 3/32 when last checked. And yes,Michelin says they’re the right tires for my car. My daughter’s put the last 4-5K miles on these and she’s the most conservative, laid back driver on the roads.I can’t wait to get these tires off of my car.

  17. I have had these on the car for 23,000 miles. During that time, I have had NO complaints about the performance or traction. The problem is, after 23,000 miles the tread bars are already exposed. That’s less than 40% of the 60,000 mile warranty, so yes, I will get a prorated discount on new tires, but it’s still a major hassle to have to shop for tires again after only two years of driving.

  18. Now that I have had these tires for a year I can say that they a whole class better than the stock tires. The car no longer pulls when going over puddles and has great traction in wet weather. Haven’t had snow since I purchased them so no opinion there. They ride really well and the wear is very little despite my spirited driving style. Overall these are excellent tires that you would not regret one bit. I was partial to Goodyear tires before these but now Michelin has won me over.

  19. It doesn’t come with much tread but I decided to buy because I had a great set of Michelin’s on a truck before and thought they would last what they claimed 55k. I do a lot of city driving when get on the highway, I’ll take high speed turn I can feel the side walls flex. I drove once in the Rocky Mountains with Light to medium snow falling the tires did great, tried to do some muddling and the tire did ok-ish. I’m very disappointed they only last 30k they at 3/32 won’t buy these ever again.

  20. Absolutely fantastic tire, except that we got less than 1/2 the “warranted” life out of the tire, and Michelin does everything in their power to avoid honoring their warranty. I would just ignore the warranty and expect about 1/2 life.On the other hand, quite literally the best all season tire we’ve ever had on a mini-van. We were driving in the mountains in snow, and 4×4 trucks and snow-plows were slipping and sliding and ending in the ditch, and we just powered right up the mountain in front-wheel drive. Ice was not fun, but we didn’t have chains.

  21. The Michelin Premier A/S is a great tire for a minivan. Very quiet on most all road surfaces. Very responsive when maneuvering at high speed.excellent wet and snow traction. I drive aggressively and use my vehicles suspension to the fullest. I should get 45>50K on this set but I rotate my tires every 10k miles.i have six cars and they all have Michelin ties on them.

  22. These Michelin Premier tires are the best tires I have purchased recently. I have Michelin tires on all three cars including this Volkswagen. These tires replaced a set of Michelin Primacy tires. The Michelin Premier tires seem just as good as the Primacy but the tread wear is better with the Premier tires. I have driven more than 25000 miles on these tires and there is very little wear. They are going to last a lot of miles. They handle great. The traction is excellent in wet and dry conditions. They are pretty quiet and are really responsive. I have not yet driven in snow with these tires. This is the ideal tire.

  23. Overall this is a fine tire that does everything well. The one unique attribute is the sound they make while on the highway. Especially when new and even more pronounced on smooth freshly-laid asphalt is an almost metallic-ringing pitch, kind of like the noise the injectors of a direct-injected engine makes. Every passenger commented on it. But it does diminish as the tires wear down and isn’t as noticeable over average road surfaces when general road noise masks the sound.
