Michelin Premier A/S

Safe When New. Safe When Worn. Even when worn, the Premier A S tire still stops shorter on wet roads than leading competitors brand-new tires
  • Outstanding wet weather traction for the life of the tire due to expanding and emerging grooves
  • Extreme amounts of silica provides exceptional wet grip for everyday handling.
  • Lasting winter performance- Sunflower Oil keeps the rubber compound flexible in lower temperatures along with many tread blocks and sipes that act as biting edges to cut through the snow
  • Excellent ride quality and handling for today's luxury vehicles

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: 640
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.
Excellent Ride Comfort & Excellent 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 & Excellent 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 4.2 out of 5 by 153 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. September 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Two Thumbs Up! 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. August 26, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. August 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! August 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by very good tire 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. August 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. August 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. June 24, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. June 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. June 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tire Replaced a set of Michelin Pilots with this tire and so far I am well pleased. Smooth, quiet ride. June 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! May 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Tires Around 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. May 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Tire 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. May 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Michelin Tire 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. May 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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) May 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! May 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simply................Awesome! 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! May 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great tires 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. May 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. April 24, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not what I expected !! Looking for a Quiet and Comfortable ride ?? Installed the Premier A/S three weeks ago 215/45/R17 These tires are far from being quiet and comfortable,road noise and hard ride with manufactures recommended PSI April 23, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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. April 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Tires 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. April 15, 2014
