Load Index
Load Range


Safety Rating is a combination of two values: Load Index and Speed Rating for P-Metric and Euro Metric tire sizes; and Load Range and Speed Rating in the case of heavy duty LT (light truck) sizes.

Speed Rating is based on the speed that the tire is designed to be driven at for extended periods of time. All tires in the in the U.S. are designed to maintain legal U.S. speed limits. The speed rating of tires must match the maximum driving speed of the vehicle.

Load Index is used on P metric and Euro Metric sized tires and denotes a tire's load-carrying capacity at a specified inflation pressure. The load index is represented by a number, the higher the Load Index Value the greater the load the tire can safely carry. Vehicle manufacturers recommend a maximum load capacity based on a recommended minimum load index.

Tire Class


Tire Class reflects how the tire will be used. There are four major categories: All-Season, Max Performance, Summer-Only and Winter-Use.

All-Season tires are suitable for year-round driving in all weather conditions.

Summer-Only & Max Performance tires are specifically designed for high-performance driving. Tire compound, tread design and speed ratings all combine to hug the road and maintain grip. Summer tires by nature are not ideal for winter driving due to lack of siding to grip winter roads.

Winter-Use tires have tread compounds and patterns that are specially designed for grip on snowy or icy road surfaces. They are not suitable for year-round use. The rubber compound used will wear more quickly on dry, summer roads. It is recommended that winter tires are fitted as a complete set to avoid potential handling issues.

Tread Type


Tread Type is an important consideration when choosing a tire. There are four main types: Passenger, Highway, All-Terrain and Mud-Terrain.

Passenger denotes a tread that is suitable for normal use, a good all-round tread for normal driving.

Highway is a tread type unique to SUV and truck tires. The tread is optimized for normal everyday driving on paved surfaces. These tires can be driven off pavement, but are not ideally suited for off road traction. Highway tread patterns deliver a quiet ride.

For light trucks and specialty vehicles, All-Terrain tread types provide better off-road traction than standard highway truck tires. There more aggressive tread tends to be less quiet on paved roads. All Terrain tires are suitable for everyday use.

Mud-Terrain treads are specifically designed with wider tread blocks and higher void ratios to gain traction in off-road conditions. Mud Terrain tires can generate higher noise levels and tend to carry lower mileage warranties than other tread designs.

UTQG - Uniform Tire Quality Grade

UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grade) is made up of three values: treadwear, traction and temperature.

Treadwear is a relative numeric score, based on manufacturer tests, showing how well a tire can be expected to wear compared to other tires. A higher score means a tire could be expected to wear better.

Traction measures the tire's ability to stop a vehicle on wet roads. It doesn't reflect a tire's acceleration, cornering, or hydroplaning performance. Traction grades range from AA (highest) to C (lowest).

Temperature grades the tire's ability to withstand heat build-up, with A being the highest grade and C the lowest.

A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 to 115 mph
C - Between 85 to 100 mph
Treadwear: 620
Traction Asphalt - gForce
AA - Above 0.54
A - Above 0.47
B - Above 0.38
C - Less Than 0.38
A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 and 115 mph
C - Between 85 and 100 mph

Drive / Ride Performance Characteristics

All tires have the following six performance characteristics, divided into three sets of trade-offs. In most cases, a tire may perform excellently in one characteristic but only standard in the other.
Standard Ride Comfort & Standard Handling
Handling: Get stiff side wall for precise steering and cornering but settle for a firm ride with increased road noise.
Ride Comfort: Enjoy a quiet, smooth ride but lose some cornering ability.
Standard Treadwear & Standard Traction
Traction: Stop faster in wet conditions but expect a shorter tread life.
Treadwear: Get long, uniform wear across your tread pattern but expect less traction in wet conditions.
Standard Low Rolling Resistance & Standard High Speed Performance
High-Speed Performance: Get increased performance at higher speeds but sacrifice some fuel economy.
Low Rolling Resistance: Enjoy improved fuel efficiency but expect less high-speed cornering ability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Tire for Lexus LS400 In my opinion, the Michelin Primacy MXV4 is the best tire available for the Lexus LS400 in the market today. Smooth & Quiet Ride, Secure Handling, and Outstanding Tread Life. Fuel Economy for my car averages 19-20 MPG in the City and 26-28 MPG on the Highway with these tires - not bad for a large sedan with a V-8 engine. Costs more than most tires, but you absolutely get what you pay for with the Primacy MXV4. When these wear out, I will definitely replace them with a new set of Michelin Primacy MXV4s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tire for Honda Accord I've installed these tires on 2 of our Honda Accords and been extremely happy with them. They wear well, lasting over 70,000 miles. Handling on wet or dry pavement is excellent, handling in snow is good to very good. Most important, they produce a much quieter ride than the factory tires (Michelin Pilot MXM2s)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid and value I found this highly rated product on Consumer Reports and have been very pleased with it. Tread life has been good and handling in both winter (I live in Minnesota) and summer very solid. I have an Infiniti G35x, I'm not a "car guy" just want a tire that rides well and feels safe and these fit that nicely for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Great Tire I bought a set of these Primacy tires for my 2004 Lexus 430, they made the car handle very well. Over the course of a couple years they showed little sign of wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Back to owning safe tires After replacing the factory Michelin with another brand that was comparable I found the need to go back to Michelins. From the handling ability to quiet road noise and the ease on my mind for the safety that I know Michelin provides I am glad to have OEM tire back on my wife's car.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty much what I expected Bought a set of 4 in January 2011 to replace the set on my 2003 Honda Accord. I wanted a quiet tire and these were what was on the Accord when it was new. I got what I was after as this set of tires is as quiet as before. Wet weather performance is average from my experience. So far I have 36,700 miles on them and they seem to be wearing fine. They are touted to be a 60,000 mile tire and it appears they will make it there or at least get close. However, the quiet is what I like and they fill the bill there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Tires The Primacy MXV4 tire's I purchase were absolutely great. They are great on gas mileage and the ride is smooth. It's a nice quite ride. A huge improvement from the factory tires Chrysler installs on their cars. I would definitely recommend these tires.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good grip, Nice Ride I've had my Primacy MXV4's for around 9 mos. 10K miles and have no issues. I live in Michigan and have a steep driveway so winter traction was my biggest concern and these tires deliver with confidence. Recommended them to my brother (also lives in MI) and he's happy with his purchase. They are slightly firmer than my last set of tires but that is to be expected with high mile warranty tires. Good grip, Nice ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As always the best I have been driving on Michelin tires since 1971 when I made my first switch. I took a few moments and added up the number of Michelins I have purchased since then and came up with about 66 tires. I actually try to buy cars with factory Michelin equipped tires. if my car of choice did not come with Michelins the transformation regarding ride and handling when switched has always been remarkable. My current MXV4's then are no surprise as they have helped my current unremarkable car handle at it's optimum ability. I wonder why the car builders bother using other brands of tires that hinder the overall capabilities of the car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I bought again I put these on my 2005 Altima and they did great in the snow and pretty good on the ice in Northern Iowa. The tread life was great but I did replace them early as we were going into winter and the traction is not as good on the snow and ice at 55,000 miles as they are when new. This is a great all season tire. I've recently moved to Texas and expect them to be just as good in the Texas heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Michelins - they are worth every penny. Michelin tires are worth every penny!!!! My car handles amazingly well being 14 years old. My gas mileage went from 19.5 mpg to 22.3 mpg, the ride is smoother, my confidence on snow filled and wet roads has exceeded my expectations and they look sporty on my older vehicle!!! Michelins are the only brand I will trust when it comes to my daughters driving on Minnesota roads!! Than you Michelin for making outstanding tires and standing behind your product every mile we put on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not my first set of Michelin This is the 3rd set of Michelin tires on my Subaru. My car has approximately 160,000 miles. I purchased the car with Michelin tires and have stayed with Michelin. Actually, this is my second Subaru and that car always had Michelin Tires. Great tires, great price and most importantly, very safe.
