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: 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.
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 2 out of 5 by Michelin Primacy MXV4 Short Tread Life I purchased a set of the Michelin Primacy MXV4 P235/60R17 tires for my minivan and they wore out at ~33,000 miles. I don't drive aggressively and rotate them every 5k miles. I always purchased Michelins for all of my cars, Now I am switching to another brand. October 16, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Surprised I was surprised to have the Michelin on our new Toyota Camry wear out at 40,000 miles, well short of the advertised 60,000 miles. Have owned many sets of Michelin tires and they usually last the warranted mileage with rotation and maintaining of proper tire pressure. Not sure if this is related to the tires installed on a new car or this tire in general. Filed a warranty claim, hopeful to get a credit on a new set of Michelin tires. This tire handled well on the car with no noise. Happy with how the tires performed, but not happy with wearing out after 2/3rds of the advertised mileage. September 17, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tires so far... Michelin Primacy MXV4's were the "factory tire" which came with my 2015 Toyota Corolla S. So far these tires have been great during ~15,000 kms of routine driving. I've found them to be quiet, of good quality and I feel very safe driving with these tires during city and highway travels on the BC South Coast and in nearby Western Washington. They've been great for highway travel up and down the I-5 and 99, along with local driving. It rains A LOT here in the Pacific NW and these tires have met all expectations. I can't comment about snow though! All good overall. I recommend these tires based on my positive experiences thus far. September 5, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by First bad experience with Michelin tires. Primacy MXV4' My 2015 Toyota Sienna came with Primacy MXV4 235/ 60R17 tires and they only lasted 30,875 miles. They had been rotated, balanced checked every 5,000 mi and didn't last the intended 60,000 miles. This is first bad experience with Michelin tires. August 29, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Tires I've Owned I bought the Primacy tires with 84,000 miles on my 2006 VW Passat, and just turned over 183,000 last week on the same set. Not one problem, and Michigan roads can be extremely tough on tires! That is why I'm on this site; looking in to buying another set before the snow flies. I would recommend these tires very highly. August 16, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 66,000 Miles and Counting! Not sure what type of driving these other reviewers are doing, but my daily work commute is 110 miles round trip including dropping my wife off in downtown Baltimore. Some of the worst potholes I've ever encountered are on those city roads. The sidewalls on other brands of tires I've had would have bulged after hitting one. Not the Primacy! Getting ready to put a new set on in about a week...even though they look like I could safely get another 10K miles out of them. Probably the best tire I've ever owned in my 40 years of driving! And oh by the way, I drive 80 MPH on the highway. So don't assume I'm being easy on them. July 23, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by tire wear Only got 14800 miles on them and they are at 2/32 tread depth. Discount won't make it right. No more Michelin's for me July 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Safe and Dependable Tire Only got 40K miles out of the tires but I feel we drive our vehicle pretty hard and in extreme conditions. I felt these were the safest tires out there for my newer Honda Odyssey which is why I bought then again. These are quiet, safe, all-around great tire with no drawbacks. Happy to have my family riding on these tires. July 9, 2016
