Michelin Pilot MXM4

Providing all-season sport handling and a quiet, comfortable ride, this tire is original equipment on vehicles like Cadillac CTS, Acura TL and Mercedes C-Class
  • A European handling profile, featuring a rounder shoulder, is designed to provide progressive, predictable cornering, letting you push your vehicle to the edges of its performance capabilities.
  • 2-D Active sipes which are both variable width and full depth create biting edges to help give you more confidence in rain or snow
  • Comfort Control Technology uses computer optimized design and precision to offer greatly reduced vibrations and road noise

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.

All Season



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: 300
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 Great Tire Michelin really upgraded the Pilot MXM4. It Looks Great/Way Better Rides With More Cushion handling Slight Improvement from an Already Excellent Handling Tire for my 04 LINCOLN LS Best Ever! This tire is quiet if you think not it's probably your car. July 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than original equipment tires What a difference. Much better ride and handling. Worth every penny. July 9, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Primacy MXM4- 2012 Acrua TL (Base) This is my second set of Primacy MXM4's (P245/ 50R17) for my 2012 Acura TL (Base) model, which were replaced on 7-2-16. Through proper maintenance (rotation of tires between 5,000 to 6,000 miles and recommended tire pressure per manufacturer at 32 psi), I was able to obtain 63,000 miles and probably could have got another 5,000 to 7,000 miles (replaced with 4/32 " tread depth still available). My driving consist of a mixture of highway and city driving. The ride comfort and wet traction is excellent. I can't speak well on snow traction being in NC, but when snow and ice were present, the Primacy MXM4s held up well. July 3, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Not Happy Unhappy due to the fact I am putting 4 new tires on a vehicle with 29654 miles on it. They had Michelin Primacy MXM4 18". Never have had to put tires on this early on any of our vehicles. June 22, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Changed tires on my 2013 Avalon to Michelin Primacy These tires are very quiet and smooth riding. The tires that came on my car were very noisy and rough riding May 5, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best tire in its Class !! I'll make this short (and sweet)................... The Michelin Primacy MXM4s are, without a doubt, as good a tire as I've ever owned in nearly 50 years of driving - in ALL conditions/terrains !! They are unbeatable -and- their competitive pricing makes all the more desirable !! April 7, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Primacy MXM4 on Ford Crown Victoria My original tires were an OEM Michelin. I was satisfied with them but wanted to upgrade on my next set. I went with the Primacy MXM4. They were excellent! Great steering response, never made any noise, never needed to be re-balanced. I rotated as you should but was able to run them 92,000 miles. They still had serviceable tread but I decided I had gotten my money's worth. I put on another set last year and my 165,000 Crown Vic still feels like it did when I brought it home in 2004. I'm now putting a set on my Challenger RT. March 21, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Horrible road noise, harsh road comfort This tire came factory installed on my 2014 Honda Civic sedan EX-L. The road noise that this tire generates on any surface beyond the smoothest of freshly laid blacktop is horrendous. For awhile, I thought it was a lack of sound deadening in my vehicle. So I went through the expensive, time consuming process of installing sound proofing materials inside of all four doors, thickening the lining underneath the carpeting throughout the vehicle and completely insulating the trunk. All of this combined did almost nothing to reduce the sanity-collapsing road noise! It was these tires all along! Not to mention 4/32" of tread left after 32k miles! February 22, 2016
