Michelin Energy MXV4 S8
Initial Review: 48,000 miles on tires
August 01, 2012

At 38,000 these tires had no business on the wet icey, or snowy roads. Lucky for me, we had an extremely dry winter, spring and summer. I just hit 48,500 and have worried ever since hitting 38,000. I should have just replaced them but thought I could make it to 50,000 if we didn't have a wet season. I got lucky and will never risk that again. At 38,000 miles I was driving in less than an inch of snow. I took a turn, one I have taken many many times, and I lost the car. I was headed straight for a stop sign. I barely squeaked by with no injury to the car. However, on dry pavement these babies are quiet and so smooth. No vibration up to 95(I haven;t pushed it any higher than that). The guy at the tire place told me 15,000 miles ago that these tires were done. Guess not. I won't buy these tires again but I will buy the Primacy version.
