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.


Michelin Pilot MXM4 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1166.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from lssdt longer than competition I bought these tires after using various brands over the years. I must say that they perform better than any tire that I've tried in the past. I drive a 9 year old lexus ls 430 and have had several set of tires on this car and these are the quietest yet most responsive tires of all. I'm really impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great ride , great mileage I bought these tires over a year ago for my three cars. I have purchased many different brands in my life, including Michelin and have been disappointed in either the ride comfort or the mileage I achieved. This tire is different. Under all weather conditions the handling is superior, the ride is good and the wear life is exceptional. I have recommended them to all my friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Michelin Primacy all around performer My Michelin Primacy tires are used year round through 4 seasons of New England weather. They are excellent in all aspects of handling, smooth ride and quietness. They perform outstanding in all weather from the summer heat to frigid cold blizzard conditions. The only drawback is that how long the last. This is my second set of Michelin Primacy tires and the usable tread is worn at about 30,000 miles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safety first Automobile and driving safety were my first, most emphatic and most enduring lessons prior to being permitted my first license in the early 1940s. Through experience and research since then, I have learned and continue to learn essentials of tire design, manufacture and durability. Michelin is the brand that always tops my lists for these and other desirable traits; and for this reason I always demand Michelin as original equipment in new car purchases, and for replacement; and I have them now on both of the cars in my family. Before replacing a set of tires, I always call the US Michelin distributor to discuss possible new models and features since my previous purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There isn't a better tire anywhere! Real customer real answers. Michelin tires just offer a better ride. If its rain, If its snow, or just a hot sunny day just having Michelin Tires adds extra security along the way. Better ride / better comfort what's on your axles???

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best running tire I have ever owned I use these tires on my S-Type Jaguar. I have tried other brands on the car to try to save a little money but they did not give me the handling and comfort that I want from my Jaguar. These tires are so smooth and quiet. This is the only tire I will purchase for my car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Turned our car into a mountain goat. We live at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains with a street slope of 4-6% (5,250 ft. altitude). In fact it is so steep, kids use it to sled down when it snows. Our BMW all-wheel drive previously had run-flat tires that made it very precarious to navigate our area when it snowed . We weren't getting the full effect of the traction system. The Michelin Primacy MXM4 tires transformed our car into a "climbing machine". We were so confident of Michelin quality, we changed from run-flat tires and have not experienced any problems. In fact, the car became even more responsive and fun to drive. Thank you for Michelin for the pleasant experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy the Best - Michelin When I hear "Michelin", I think quality. I use the MXM4's on my Lexus RX 350 and love them. Why? They are a great value for the money, live up to their mileage promise and provide solid performance in any driving condition. These tires provide a smooth ride and really help with gas mileage. For me, there is no other tire than a Michelin. Can't wait to try the new Defender!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these tires!! I love my new tires! I bought my car brand new and they came with another brand of tires and I hated them didn't ride good, lots of road noise and if it rained hard it felt like you would hydroplane.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tire I love my Michelin tires on my 2010 VW Jetta TDI. They're quiet, have great grip and are also great in the rain. I've only put 7,000 miles on them so far and I love them. I'm curious to find out how they handle in the snow. As of right now, I would not buy any other tire.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT TIRES After 6 years of daily use (with additional tread life left on the existing tires), I recently replaced the factory-installed Michelin MXM4 tires on my 2007 Mercedes-Benz C280L. After reviewing many options, I decided to use the same tires that were on the vehicle at the time of original purchase. I have not been disappointed. These tires offer a quiet, comfortable ride, superb handling, excellent gas mileage (32+ MPG on the highway) that exceeds manufacturer's specs, and they stop on a dime, even on wet surfaces. I believe that the tires work well with the existing safety features built into my Mercedes to make it an even safer vehicle to drive. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tires for my Acrua RDX Tires are over one year old and my brother in law commented "did you just put new tires on your car?". They are great, I feel safe in the car on rainy days and when I have to slam on the brakes. I pay up for these tires but they are so worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 7 Years on originals, hought them again These tires were standard on my 2006 Acura TL and despite reading mixed reviews on their durability, they lasted for 7 years on the originals and 70,000 miles so I can only choose to buy them again. Great tire for a mix of performance and durability
