I just have to give this tire a 10 due to the fact I have 112,000 miles on them and they STILL ride and handle great (installed @ 84k, 196k on odometer now). In fact I'm heading out next week for a 3 state upper midwest tour with no fear. I rotate every other oil change and was leery about getting 60k out this spendy tire. I'll certainly buy these Primacy tires again as the old Northstar V8 can still chirp these tires and is running great. This tire seems to swallow road noise, especially quiet on my favorite test--bridge seams on the interstate. Somehow this tread design handles wicked snow & ice we get regularly in Wisc, MN & Upper MI. I'll pay extra to get this quiet, confident Michelin ride again!
