Speed Rating
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: 240
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 MICHELIN PRIMACY I'm a first time Michelin customer. I purchased the Michelin primacy for my family's car and I will never out anything else on. We use the car on long family trips. The ride is unmatched to any other brand name tire. My fuel efficiency has increased and the ride and comfort is top notch. With the Michelins, I also have piece of mind for my family's safety. I plan on putting Michelins on all my vehicles from here on out. August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 1965 to day on Michlins In 1965 I owned a new Monza and as a member of the military drove across the United States. Michelin tires provided me with a great ride, traction and reliability. Since then I have owned 45 new automobiles of which many were equipped with Michelins. The Michelin tires provide a sense of security and wear very well. I am happy that the 2014 Corvette I have ordered will be equipped with Michelin Tires. My 2012 Honda coupe is also equipped with Michelin Primacy tires. Thanks Michelin. August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I would buy this tire again and again The most outstanding aspect of my Michelin tires is the handling on my 2003 Acura. I have had other brands on this vehicle and can really tell the difference. I have over 163,000 miles on this auto. The mileage and wear are much better, as well. I am very particular about maintaining the proper air pressure and rotation to ensure I maximize the life of the tire. Great product! August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I can't stop buying Michelin Michelin tires are great. Quality and reliabilty is why I can't stop buying them. I love a smooth ride. They are working great on my Nissan Altima and wife's Lexus. These tires preform above my expectations. They are more expensive, but worth the difference. August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I will purchase Michelin tires again! I love how these tires handle!!! August 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Michelin Primacy - Always a Great Choice I am on my second set of Primacy tires and couldn't be more satisfied. The first set lasted 70 miles on my SUV, including years of towing a 3500 lb boat. Second set is going strong. Always a great choice. August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by lasting longer than expected Tire is lasting longer than expected and is great in rain, ice and snow. Well worth the extra money and a better value August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Used over a year. I have had the four tires on a Subaru Outback and so far they drive well, seem to be wearing very slowly. I plan to have this car for a long time so glad to get the Michlands. Just bought 6 Michlands for my RV {Not a small investment}, because I was satisfied with the first set. August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top end of quality Very durable, excellent handling and very smooth running. Quiet running as well ... August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth as silk. Purchased 4 tires for BMW 750 Li and noticed immediate improvement in quietness and road hugging capability--like suction cups. Ride quality is extremely important to me and these tires provide it in spades. I love them. No other tires needed--ever! August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Defender Tire for Prius Replaced the OEM tires with the Defender tire. Immediate reaction is how well it controls and corners. The car is stiffer on the ride but the control and cornering is miles ahead of the original OEM tires. Has better tread life as well which justify of it's cost. It definitely puts life into Prius with it's less than stellar performing engine. Feels like I have a new car. August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by What is Your Life Worth? These tires were replacement for the original tires (not Michelin) which started to show tread at 20,000 miles. The Michelin's seem to make the car feel smoother, handle better, and ride quieter. I think they are the safest tires I can buy for my family's safety. August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I notice a smoother ride I notice a smoother ride while traveling down bubby roads. August 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by love this tie smoot and quite I always used Michelin tie on my truck LX 470 and mini van it so smoothly and quite.. very good when it rain even heavy rain like this afternoon 08/ 14/2013. I try text break hard but it handle so well August 12, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by I would buy product again Good tire I would buy again August 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Grip and Fuel Economy Bought a set of 4 of these tires for my Focus. Really impressed with the grip and the lower rolling resistance. Got good fuel economy from the tires. My only complain would be a tendency for the tires to squeal when taking off from a hill. Maybe its the torque in my car that caused this. No problems using it in the winter too. Gave me good assurance in driving my car under winter conditions. For the price I paid, it was a good value. August 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pilot Primacy Are Awesome Performers Michelin Pilot Primacy tires get the job done with style, competence, and class! Handling on dry, wet, and snowy roads is great and road noise is minimal. I currently have about 25,000 miles on my tires and they appear to be wearing quite nicely. Cornering is impressive, with the tires hugging the road and keeping my car on track under many different road conditions. I would definitely consider buying them again. August 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my tires! I have purchased Michelin Tires for many years for all of my cars. They are durable and I feel safe knowing they are on my car. Thank you Michelin! August 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good tire Good tire, last of 4 yet to be replaced...still in better shape than others. August 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by outstanding Primacy, aptly named! These tires are now on two of our cars...One care a Subaru Wagon is a moderate milage traveler, where as My car which travels1150 to 200 miles daily has clocked over 60,oo miles to date. These tiere took awhile to find as many sources atthe time were out. To know that I am assured of the quality and safety or what our cars drive oneverydayw helping keep us safe, is why I , we have always relied on Michelin, as you shoud too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by nice ride! Awesome tire; provide a smooth quiet ride while giving great cornering traction as well as wet weather traction. Two thumbs up!! August 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by High quality, long lasting Excellent tires. Worn very well with good alignment and conservative driving. Reasonably quiet. Good in the snow (w/AWD car). Tread design does not call for siping. Will purchase new set of same tires. August 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Nice Mix of Everything My new Michelin Pilot Primacy tires are a very nice mixture of handling, ride comfort, and low noise. I never thought an SUV could be this quiet and ride this smoothly. August 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by safety first. they cost more, but you pay for what you get. quality is safety, I drive 100 miles every day I need safety on my way to work. I choose Michelin they are the best tires I has been using this brand in my Volvo since 2005. August 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth and Safe Handling With the extreme weather in New York over the past year these tires have gotten me through ice and snow while other cars were stranded on the side of the road. They also performed well getting me through flooded pockets on the road. Between my Michelin's and my Subaru I have safely and comfortably made it through weather conditions that I have never experienced before. Thank you, Michelin. August 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Top end of quality Quiet, smooth running tire. The best you can find when it comes to quality and durability. Mileage is satisfactory as well... August 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by If it "works"don't "fix" it great tire! I bought these tires for my wife's "baby" a S320 Mercedes she loves this car and I love her so would never put anything but a Michelin tire on her car. The tire gives an amazing smooth ride to an already perfect car. The wife noticed right away the change in the ride and said "I love my new car shoes" I did a good job and Michelin did a "Great" job !! Sincerely, Elmer Buick August 7, 2013
