I was insistent on buying tires that exactly matched the vehicle's specifications, and this was my only choice. I simply can't stress enough how supremely excellent these tires are. These replaced three OEM Michelin Pilot MXV4s and one Falken Ziex ZE-512 (silly previous owner). The Primacy MXM4 handles far better than I could have imagined. They handle like summer tires with ample wet and dry grip, but provide a nice QUIET ride and are almost as comfortable as say a grand touring tire - very close. I am middle-aged and can say these are the finest tires I have ever owned... and I don't cheap-out on tires. I know the car is a tad wimpy to get such awesome shoes, but they really made the car. I love to drive it now more than ever. They balanced perfectly, never flat spot, look sharp and are wearing even, slow and predictably. The Michelin Primacy MXM4 is QUITE a tire!
