Initial Review, 15,000 Miles on Tires
June 06, 2014

Our 2013 Honda Accord Sedan with the Sport Trim Pkg comes with either Goodyear Eagle RS-A2
or Michelin Primacy MXM4. My experience with the Goodyear Eagle RS has been very disappointing and it took my dealer a week to find a 2013 Accord Sport with Michelin Primacy MXM4 on it from the factory. We have a 2009 Civic EX with the Goodyear above on it as it came with them and they are the loudest tire I & my wife have yet to experience. We became spoiled as mostly all of our Accords with the EX & EX-L trim pkg's are equipped with Michelin tires and most models have been superior. The Michelin Primacy MXM4 has been a strong tire for the 2013 Accord Sport as the 18" wheel/tire combo is more of a high performance All Season tire thus the MXM4(4=all season code). We have 15K miles on them and 12K+ of that is highway as we have driven to Florida & back twice and the balance is mostly local weekend driving as we only use the Accord for family trips & summer use. It is not driven from Nov-Apr as we drive to FL in mid-Oct, leave it there until we return in Apr. & drive back to NY in May. It then is driven throughout the summer month's as well as our annual Family Reunion (2-wks in Maine every August). We took delivery of this Accord in Oct. 2012, and 10-days later drove it to Florida. The Michelin Primacy MXM4 are a inch bigger than the tires/wheel pkg's that have come on our prior Accord EX & EXL's which are equipped with 17" alloys with matching Michelin tires. So, as for the 1st 15Kmi, we have been pleased with this tire, and don't expect any major opinion changes over the next 3-yrs. The 2008 Accord we had was an EX, and when traded for the 2013 with the Michelin Primacy MXM4 its Michelin's has 46k miles upon them.So please, try a set of Michelin Primacy MXM4's, you'll be glad you did as you'll start receiving dividends from the investment of your new tires starting when you 1st drive.

Initial Review, 50 Miles on Tires
June 19, 2014

Got these tires 225/50R17 for '98 Accord V6 LX sedan (291K miles) on an exchange as recommendation . The Primacy MXV4 had a left radial pull and needed front axle balancing about once a week. After Dealer did aligned the vehicle 8 times and balanced the tires 11 times, replaced every worn out front-end suspension part. I have tried every major tire on this car, pulls to the left, unable to maintain balance, noisy or worn out too quickly, I was ready to give up. I later learned this last set of tires were defective.
I highly recommend these tire for most Asian imports. With less than 100 miles mostly freeway, the care doesn't pull left. Tires are very quiet. Have not had rain or snow to evaluate handling during wet driving. Dry roads the vehicle handles great, like new again. Base on the mileage, ride comfort and handling, I give these tires a 9.5 score.

Picked this tire to replace the OE Michelin tires which had started to culp at 30,000 miles .. dealer and independent shop both said nothing they could do ... I had rotated at 5,000 miles faithfully. This tire is quieter, rides better and is excellent in the rain. This is my wife's car and I keep it in tip-top condition. Ready to put the same tire on my 2006 RSX-Type S!

I am a Michelin man. But the factory tire wore out on my CT200H and I was not pleased, dealer said that factory puts on "substandard" tires and the replacements (same model) would be better. Sure they would... So I put on the P7's. Wow, these guys give the best ride I have had in a long time. Smooth, quiet and responsive. Fuel economy is negligibly lower, but made up for in the better ride.

Car came with Dunlop tires. I cannot believe Lexus put those tires on this car. I got rid of them at 25K. I have a 2000 LX 470 and have always been happy with the LTX M/S. These tires are even better. There is nothing bad about this tire. Bought at Tire Rack. Had dealer mount 'em. Better everything: handling, ride, traction and even gas mileage. I hunt, so in addition to city/highway, I do cornfields, creeks and every other type of off-road driving that can be found in the Midwest. The only thing that keeps me from buying a Range Rover Sport is that I cannot find these tires for that truck. I still have my LX 470 and still use the LTX M/S on that truck (it has 287K). I'm not necessarily a Michelin freak. My wife has a Lexus RX and I'm putting Continentals on that. But for the larger SUVs, the LTX M/S is fantastic tire. I like the M/S 2 better than the M/S, but they don't make it for the '00 LX470. When my friends are stuck in their Range Rovers, I'm going strong, mainly because of the traction these tires afford. On the highway, rain, snow, and sun, the tires handle well and are quiet. I'm 63 and have driven a car/truck farther in reverse than most have driven in forward. These tires are simply the best. If they make 'em to fit your vehicle, buy them. You will thank me. I promise. And I don't work for Michelin or anybody else in any auto related industry.

These tires were terrible on our 06 MDX. Loud and rough, gas mileage dropped noticeably by 2 mpg. Wear was uneven, and no matter how many trips to dealers and shops, always seemed slightly out of balance and alignment slightly off. After 35,000 miles, I replaced them with Michelin Lattitudes. Night and day difference.

i have an audi sq5, which i purchased in DEC 2013. the car comes with summer rubber so i had to get those off the car asap. i shopped around on tirerack for the michelin's that the dealer recommended, and after i was done laughing at the price, i did a generic search for all tires that would fit the sq5. i came across these Generals and having no experience with General tires, i took a leap of faith based on the reviews here. i couldn't be more happy with an all-season tire. these are great in snow, make very little noise, and are an excellent all around tire. not too much roll, i'd say better than average. i give these my highest recommendation as an all-season.

10k miles and all 4 tires cracked in the tread, Michelin didn't want to cover the replacement of these tires, my dealer wouldn't let me leave the lot with these tires and took it on themselves to put new tires on the car, that was the last Michelin I will ever own

I have had these tires twice, once on a Subaru and now I put them on a JCW Mini Coupe. The dealer ordered them from Tire Rack for me and put them on before I picked up my new car. It was December in Colorado.

I absolutely love these tires. I have used the Blizzaks and Michelins on other vehicles and this is my favorite. The primary thing I like is that the snow traction is terrific but what makes it exceptional is the dry traction. In this season I have used the tire on every type of snow and ice possible in Colorado. Outside of slush which no tire does well the tire is excellent. I will also tell you that if you drive a stiff suspension sports car you will like the ride with the non runflats. I believe that I could drive this tire competently in virtually all conditions short of track work.

With a front wheel drive and these tires you can drive with confidence. I went out to unplowed lots and put the tires to the limits, even turning off traction controls. I would purposely cut hard, throw up some rooster takls and try to slide and recover. It was easy.

I strongly and confidently recommend these tires to my fellow enthusiasts.

Put a set of these on my 1999 Tahoe at 125,620 miles after only getting about 60,000 miles out of a set of Goodyear Forteras. Dealer told me I would not regret it. I just turned 229,485 on my Tahoe and there is STILL no end in sight for these tires. Tires rotated every 6K min, sometimes every oil change. That is the key. Not sure when these are going to wear out. Excellent wet/dry traction, Very Good but not great in the snow. If you want a tire for your truck or SUV that you want to get 100K out of, this is your tire. Well worth the money. Rotate them frequently and they will take care of you.
