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.

All Season



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: 620
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 & 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.
Excellent LowRolling 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 4.7 out of 5 by 1757 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by worn out at 39860 miles I've had regular scheduled maintenance which includes regular balancing and rotations but these tires still wore out BEFORE 40000!!!!!! This is unacceptable! May 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sad to see these MXV4 being discontinued..hard 2 find.. I'm pleased with overall performance although they do need to be driven several miles before they get smooth. I used to think the balance of the tire was the issue but after at the latest HUNTER, I accepted the fact that the tire design itself is the issue. My 99' all wheel drive Audi A8 likes the tire and so do I. This particular Michelin on this Audi works better than everything else I've had on the car (152K) to this time. Excellent control in ALL weather. Audi A8 would most likely do a good job with any tire but these Michelins on this Audi are a kick =wear very well and make me concerned about the driver on my bumper being able to stop May 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best tires ever! I have a 2007 Acura TSX, I have put 75,000 miles on my Primacy MXV4s and are just now shopping for new tires! Upset that my size is no longer offered in this tire but I think they have exceeded their expectations! These tires are quieter than the original tires that came on my car new! April 21, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Worst Tire Ever Made My Mechelin I replaced my Primacy MXV4 tire on my 2009 Hyundai Azera With Premier AS. My prior 3 sets of Primacy's were the best tire I ever purchased.. Bad mistake to buy the Premier tires. Hope you don't make the same mistake I made because of the following. The ride very rough even after 6,000 miles. They are very noisy and especially on smooth asphalt the have singing sound. Balance is a problem. In the morning when the are cold you feel like you are riding over a road with thousands of holes. After the tires heat up they are still out of balance. I had the tires balanced and in less that 2 week same thing. Buyer beware. Don't buy.. April 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tires! My 2006 VW Passat had these tires on it when I bought it at just under 60,000 miles. I'm now at over 80,000 and every time I bring the car in to the dealership they say the tires are in great shape and there is no reason to rotate them yet. They are great in snow, rain, desert, all conditions. February 21, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good handling, but Short Life I like how this tire handled and stopped well running on my 2013 Pilot (factory tire). I felt very confident driving these in all sorts of conditions, including cold rain in the Pacific Northwest and dry desert conditions in Arizona. Unfortunately, the tire life for the Pilot is "over" per my dealer on my routine check-up and double checked by my regular tire dealer who both measured 3/32 all the way around. Only got 42,200 out of these. Gonna ask about pro-rated warranty and I will let you know how that goes. January 21, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good all around tire. I like the tire for the winter snow and ice, they handled it better than my last tires. The bad part is, 3 years, just a little over 20,000 miles and they have to be replaced. They were rotated, every six months, with around 3,000 miles of driving during each 6 month period, so for that I have to give them only an average rating. Also I have had quieter tires. I've also had better dry/wet traction tires. So if you are looking for an all season that works better in the snow and ice, these are your tire, however, if you don't do much snow/ice driving there are better choices, that will give you much longer tread life. December 4, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor ratings 34000 miles and I have to replace the tires. The tires were balance and rotated every 3000 miles. November 11, 2015
