Rated 4 out of 5 by Atcrbada Great tire but nothing's perfect...
2012 Camry XLE 17 inch rims - 4 cyl. Researched the heck out of this tire - (I do for any major purchase). After driving in torrential Florida rains, and with a little over a thousand miles so far, I can safely say this was a good purchase. Lets address the biggies - EXCELLENT wet weather traction, control, acceleration, handling, braking, what have you. You have to experience it to believe it. Noise - I really haven't noticed any significant change in road noise good, bad, indifferent whatsoever. Mileage - I keep meticulous mileage records, and it would appear to be about a 10 percent reduction in overall mileage - combined city/highway dropped from 28.4 to 25.7 combined. Bottom line though - I will trade the mileage loss for the renewed confidence in the car's handling, and the safety aspects of this tire.

I have a Mazda 2005 S Sedan and so far I've logged 2200 miles with this tire. The handling is great and the breaking is superb. I definitely would buy this tire again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dan94 Not exactly what i was hoping for
I purchased a set of the Premier A/S tires. I must say they have been somewhat disappointing. I mainly drive on concrete highways and these nosie is loudere than the worn out tires I took off. As these wear, I concerned they will get even louder. There is also some vibration with these tires that was present be fore these were installed. I have also noticed the handling concerns that others have mentioned. I'm watching my days, as I may take these tires back, but not quite sure how that part works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MaximaDriver Premier A/S
Needed tires for my 2004 Maxima, I drive spirited but only on occasion, mostly routine average driving but when I need to go I want to go! Research on several sites convinced me that this was the right tire for my car and the way I drive, it was between the Michelin premier AS/60,000 tire and the Michelin Defender/90,000 mile tire. Thanks to a intense research period online I decided on the Premier even though it costs a little more and has less tread life. It was the characteristics of superior ride, noise and handling that made the difference for me. After a serious test drive (that would make Dale Jr proud) with the tires on my maxima it was like driving a new car! My research kept coming across similar statements. I will get back after 10,000 miles but I couldn't be happier now with the handling and ride! Blows away my old tires which were fairly good. Its like the difference between driving a car with 6 cylinder then bumping up to an 8! So do your research and get the tire that fits the way you drive!

Replaced a set of factory installed Michelins on my 2012 Dodge Charger at 50k with the Michelin Premier A/S. So far so good after 3k ride and handling has inproved, to early for tire wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skyknight New level of luxury performance
Former owner of Primacy MXV4 for five premium, mid and full sized sedans. When pre-ordering new set for 2015 luxury sedan, discovered Premier A/S had replaced the Primacy MXV4. Have discovered the tire is more quiet than and as comfortable in an 18 in. 'V' fitment as the former was in 16 in. 'H' size. Its firm, confident grip, wet or dry far exceeds my aggressive handling courage and what was possible on the MXV4's. An outstanding tire and wise buying decision that I highly recommend for the maximum enjoyment of owners of premium and luxury, touring cars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer 2002 Camry
So far so good. 6 weeks and about 1400 miles. I have a 2002 Camry that has never been quieter. Nice handling & very comfortable ride so far. I did have previous balance issues with a set of MXV4s. Those had to be road force balanced a few times which was a surprise considering the cost. So far the Premiers have been great ! Even in torrential Florida rain this Camry is rock solid and feels very secure. A bit expensive. However, if the quality holds up they are worth the money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by drjer Sounds like a truck Tire!!!
The ride and handling are great but my wife, who never notices anything, has been asking me why there is so much road noise. If they are this noisy on my Lexus, I can only imagine what it would sound like on a less insulated car. I just realized there is a 30 day guarantee that I missed by 2 days. Now I am stuck with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by michelinluver Michelin hits a high note
Was very pleased when I learned the Premium A/S came to market including the Outback size. Immediately replaced the OEM T rated tires and have now logged approximately 1,500 miles, including quite a number of road miles. Handling is immensely improved with quicker turn in and sharper handling giving the Outback very precise and sports car like. Ride is smoother and quieter. This is a tire very easy to recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vloera Tires to make you love your car again
Purchased the Michelin Premeir A/S tires for my Hyundai Elantra today. These tires are so smooth and quiet it made me feel like I was driving a new car again. These tires are awesome. I have read that once you have a few thousand miles on tires they get even quieter. Not sure if this is true but I cannot imagine my car getting any quieter with road noise. Killer tires!

I have used Michelin tires for many, many years and can think of NOTHING bad to say about them. The Michelin Premier A/S tires I purchased yesterday replaced a set of tires that came on the vehicle when it was purchased. When I drove off with the new tires, I couldn't believe I had waited so long to change them. The new Michelin tires, as usual, were so nice it was as if I was almost floating on a cloud with the tires touching the road. Handling superb, road noise non-existent, ride smooth as a cloud...I LOVE Michelin Tires...and for safety they can't be beat. This is a real review from a 70 yr. old Grannie who has always loved to drive...especially with Michelins!!!! My ratings for "wear" cover all the Michelins I've had thru the years. Other ratings are only for the Premier A/S.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jimg22 Outstanding Tire Driven over 1,200 miles
Have driven the tire over 1,200 miles now, so time for review. Coming from the Michelin Energy MXV4. some comments in review about Noise, since I drive with my head inside the window, did not notice anything different from my previous tire. About the same as all other tires I have driven on passenger cars. Fuel Economy - neutral to previous tire, no gain/no loss. comfort - significantly better than my worn down Energy MXV but can say I love the ride so far. Smooth on normal street / freeway surfaces. Overall this is a great tire. The true test of the technology in this tire will be after 25-30,000 miles as the tire has significant wear. But from the first 1,200 miles, love the tire glad I made the upgrade from the MXV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JonG Loved the MXV4, but all good things. . .
Had to replace the tires on my daughters 2002 Honda Accord EX. Immediately could tell a difference in handling and accelleration. The car drove like new again. Much quieter as well. This might be true of any new tire, but Michelin has always been a solid choice and the previous Primacy MXV4 was always what I put on my car. The idea behind the new Premier tire makes sense and as long as the harder rubber lasts as long as the warranty, they will be well worth the extra $$$. Could have put cheaper tires on this car, but hard to put a price on your daughter's safety.

I am so glad I purchased this tire. It is such an improvement over the original tires that came on my 2013 Volkswagen Passat SE. The Braking is better the Ride quality is quieter and smoother. Handling is great. All around a great tire money well spent. I would defiantly recommend these tires for anyone in the market for an all season tire. Kudos to Michelin for Leading the tire industry in the best technology and design.

Recently purchased the new Premier A/S tires for my car and love them. Day after they were installed, we had a big rain and tires responded well, especially braking. No road noise and great steering/handling. Haven't had them long, but seems to already be getting a little better gas mileage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer I've been pleased since 1985
Michelin is the only Tire manufacturer my family has experienced tires lasting 5% to 10% longer than the guarantee. The Others barely hold up to their promise. It's nice to know a guarantee/promise still means something to Michelin. As a retired soldier who served 27 years a promise still means something to me and my great-grandson; who will be born Sept. 6th, 2014. I've recommended Michelin tires since 1985.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Quiet Ride - Decibels measured
Have an app on my iphone and had purposefully measured the decibels on my old tires and compared to the new Premiers - 10+ decibels quieter. Not sure how any other reviews could be claiming how they wear, as this tire was just released in April of this year; but happy to be back in the "Michelin fold"...;o)

Rated 5 out of 5 by TomL Glad to have Michelin Tires!
I was FINALLY able to get a new set of Michelin Premier A/S 205/50R17 93V on my Chevy Sonic LTZ Hatchback and boy do they feel fantastic! Living in the Pacific northwest, these tire do as advertised by griping the wet roads especially when taking winding turns through the hills and valleys. They are also much quieter than my last set of tires and I've noticed that on my front-wheel drive, they don't slip when accelerating from a stop on wet highways like my last tires. I've only had these new tires for a few weeks so I can't give my assessment on their wear-life. The ONLY downside was that there isn't a local Michelin dealer where I live and I had to drive about 15 extra miles to the next town. But it was well worth it! I'll definitely look into purchasing Michelins when I get ready to buy a new set of snow tires!

Purchased a set of 245/45R18's for my 2006 LS430. Had a 4 wheel alignment done and tire pressure set @ 40 psi. We immediately noticed how quiet these tires are! We could faintly hear the V-8 in our LS as it was going up through the gears. Braking is silent. Highway is silent. Couldn't be more pleased! Thank you Michelin!

Replaced my OEM tires for my Chevy CRUZE, Wow what a difference in handling and road noise. I recommend these tires. Can't wait until next winter to see how they handle in the snow. The only reason I am dropping it one star is the price. I never sent so much for tires. (MICH Premier A/S 215-60R16 95V - 22475). I didn't rate Wear-Life and Fuel Efficiency because I don't have enough information to rate them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Quiet and Comfortable
I have a Chevrolet Cruze Eco that I've put a lot of miles on, and I needed to replace the OEM Assurance Fuel Saver tires. These new Premier A/S tires are quieter, handle better, and have a smoother ride than the originals, which weren't that bad to start with! Fuel economy seems to be equivalent to the original tires (so far). Having a tire that performs well in wet weather, even when worn, is important in western Washington.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ROCKYR DISAPPOINTED
My car is an 09 Buick Lucerne CXL which came a set of MXV4 energy tires (best tires ever!). I was one of the first to buy a set of premier tires and was expecting something like my original set of energy tires (81,000 miles on them). I was VERY DISAPPOINTED. These tires are nothing like my originals. They ride hard, are loud, handling is not too good and have a vibration around 70 mph, which is probably due to the large amount of wheel weights added. I'm headed back to exchange them for the MXV4 plus tires at an added expense since I can't get the H rated tire instead of the V rated.

I replaced all 4 tires on my 2006 Accord LX Sedan 4 days ago, I was set o going for the Primacy MXV4 but learned that they were discontinued and replaced with the Premier A/S. I read about the technology behind the Premier A/S and decided to pull the trigger despite the risks with new products. It has only been 4 days but so far I am not disappointed and am quite impressed. Contrary to the other reviewer, these are the most quiet tires I have ever rode or driven on. I can't even hear them at 35psi (I'm supposed to be at 29/30) and trust me, I don't take road noise lightly. They are very very comfortable. Braking and accelerating feels as if the car was new - and somehow I experienced heavy rain and frost these past 4 days and had no issues. The tires are also very very stable at speed, it's too easy to go up to 80mph+ and not even feel it. The only drawback compared to the performance all season tires I'm coming from is the cornering stability, the Premier's are much softer and does not hug the pavement as nicely but overall the handling is great. I can't take any stars away for a tire that does everything else so well.
