Michelin Primacy MXV4
Initial Review: 67,000 miles on tires
January 16, 2014

These came on my 2003 Jetta TDI, with 10000 miles on them, I've put another 57000 miles on them. I rotate, not as often as I should, so i'm at 5/32 on front, and 7/32 on rear currently, with more highway, but still a very good city amount of driving. Tires have great traction, I have the diesel engine, alittle heavier than the gas, but has good braking, dry and wet. acceleration, i've never spun the tires loose since ive owned the car. Tires are not the best in snow, but if it gets to the point of chains, I dont bother going out. Ive done many hours of research for different tires this size, I have to say its in the top contender list. I'd like to find an 80k tire, as my TDI gets used 7 days a week, and plan on keeping it for along time, as she's almost paid off, and has lots of life left in her. Les Schwab has a new tire out thats 80k 900Z Ultra, I believe, that they say is very comparable, if not a little bit better, plus its a 80k not 60k, and they are only about $50 dollars extra for another 20k, and free tire rotations. But haven't settled yet on my next set. But would definate reccomend these, and i still may go with these, I've had no complaints in our crazy wet washington state weather, other than when it does snow here.. either chain up, or stay cozy warm in your house.
