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: 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 2 out of 5 by Very noisy tire I have this tire with my ACURA 2013. I drove mostly on high way. so it is ready to replace after 90+k. However it has been very noisy for the last two year while I am driving. My wife always laugh at the tire each time she ride the car. I don't know why it so noisy. Should it be covered by warranty, if I choose to replace the same tire? October 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible reliability, wear and value I drive a 2013 Honda Accord Sport and these tires came on my vehicle. I would say I drive pretty moderately so you have a reference of how hard I was on the tires. I currently have over 94,000 miles on these tires. That's not a misprint. For a 55,000 mile tire you wont get a better one out there. I am getting a new set since winter is coming here in Washington State and the roads are getting worse. If it was springtime I would probably wait as they still have adequate tread left. Some road noise with these tires is the only negative I would have. Yes they are more money than most tires, worth every cent in my opinion. October 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb all-season tire Best all season tire I've ever owned. The Primacy MXM4 isn't perfect nor even best in class in any single category, but is a standout because it excels in all (disclaimer: I don't live in the snow belt and haven't driven them in snow). The tire provides a superb balance between ride comfort and control... taught and confidence inspiring while being comfortable. For a non-directional tread its hydroplaning resistance is excellent and for an all season its lateral wet grip is exceptional. Dry grip is excellent for a tire in this class. It's also the quietest tire I've ever owned. Good, even wear. Will continue to buy this or successor. October 8, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best tires I've ever had!!! I have a 2011 Buick Regal that I bought new with Michelin Pilot MXM4 tires. I drive a long distance to and from work each day and just replaced the tires at 80,300 miles!!! When I had them replaced, I was told I could probably have gotten another 1,000 - 2,000 miles out of them! Unbelievable! I drive about 20K miles per year in my car. I was so impressed with the tires that I replaced them with a new MXM4s. I think I will stick with Michelin tires from now on no matter what car I drive in the future. October 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sure Footed and Reliable Drove to Lake George, NY from Jupiter, FL-total of 7,100 miles round trip. Hit white squalls near JAX(Similar to winter white outs). Remainder of trip was mostly dry w/occasional heavy rains. Never once hydroplaned or skidded. Smooth, soft, quiet ride...although tire pressure was 6# low. Local WPB dealer forgot to check tire pressure during tire rotation, nor did they check windshield washer fluid. Added proper air pressure for return trip and noted firmer, more responsive handling. Great stopping/slowing when required as drivers occasionally drifted/changed lanes with out looking. I'll remain a loyal customer! September 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by outstanding what a treat to not hear my tires on the noise.....very smooth......outstanding performance.......MXM4 will be my next set,,,,,,next get the idea August 23, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Disappointed I agree with a previous reviewer. These tires made a huge difference on my car years ago. But I just put the Primacy on my SUV and I getting lower gas mileage. Where I drive and how I drive hasn't changed. Only the tires. I enjoy the comfort of these tires but the price wasn't worth lower mileage. August 5, 2016
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
