This is my fourth set of Primacy and despite being higher in price than most tires, they provide the best tire qualities. I am most satisfied and recommend this tire to anyone who wants to drive with safety and peace of mind.

Had this style of tire on my 2013 Taurus for 4 years. Drove in all weather conditions and the tires were excellent. When I got my 2016 Taurus SHO it came with sporty summer tires. End of October I got the Primacy MXM4's put on because of the great experience I had with them the previous 4 years. I use them year-round.

Good tires. Big improvement from Goodyear OEM tires on Accord. But they still tend to "shimmy" sometimes when cornering. Don't know if this is because they're just new and have the mold lubricant that's affecting them or if it's a thing for them.

I replaced my OEM Pirelli P6 245/40 18 High Performance Tires with these due to 2 pot hole blow-outs and 1 side wall cut. So far (only 1000 miles) these Michelins ride smoother, quieter, and handle just as well as the Pirelli's. Hopefully the "45" sidewall will prevent future blow-outs since it's not a true "low profile' tire.

These tires are amazing for this car. The previous set of tires(not Michelin)kept my car parked in the driveway when there was snow on the road as the car would not move! With these tires, I am again on the snow covered roads and would absolutely recommend them. I will never go with anything but MICHELIN!

I think these tires far and away beat the original equipment goodyear eagle LS2. They were smooth as silk up to 90 mph, as fast as I dared to test them. The rims to which they were mounted are the original rims, so the difference is the tires.

As I mounted these tires after all the storms we had this year, I cannot comment on snow performance. But they have been excellent in every other area so far. I'm amazed that a speed-rated (V) tire does not seem to ride rough compared to the old (T rated) all season it replaced. Based on reviews, I expect long, dependable service too.

So far so good. I've only put about 1000 miles on them since I purchased them. It's winter time here and have driven with them in snow and ice and so far the traction has been excellent. Ride and handling are also excellent and they seem very quiet, much more so than the original factory tires the car came with. Although expensive I'm very happy with them so far.

The tires are still fairly new. These are run flat tires that I bought to replace the factory-installed Continentals. Steering response and handling are almost as good as the Continentals. However the ride is somewhat smoother and quieter, where ride quality is normally an issue with run flats.

These tires give a smooth and quiet ride, unlike the original equipment Bridgstone Turanza and the very noisy Bridgestone Potenza G019 Grid that replaced the original tires.
