Before I start I will say that I have a unique car, 1956 Chevrolet Belair 9-passenger wagon. I have put a great deal of time, attention and money into making this car a aweet daily-driver over the last 3 years, including extensive suspension and brake work/upgrades. When I got the car 3 years ago I put new 17 inch BF Goodrich G-Force Sports and American Racing Torque Thrust II's on all 4 wheels (17x8). Although there was still tread left, after a certain wear level these tires began to drive and handle very badly. The tire needed to go. I did A LOT of research and price comparisions and selected the Michelin Primacy MXM4. I have to say I can not believe the positive difference these tires made in my car...Extraordinary! WAY better handling, and much lower noise level both while going down the road and over bumps with these. Road impacts are almost eliminated and the car is very sure footed. While these are quite wide they do mot tramline or follow irregular road surfaces at all as my previous tires did. (These Michelins are the exact same size as my previous tires) I notice a huge difference the entire time I am driving the car, better and quiter driving, stopping, steering as well as better straight-line stability and cornering on my heavy car. I am SO glad I got these. If you enjoy researching and comparing keep doing it, but If you want to be done making the best decision and start really enjoying your car do yourself a favor. Stop researching and get these tires. (They also look great on my car) Thanks and have a great day.
