Comment:
I bought a set of four Michelin Primacy MXV4 tires for an Audi A6 Quattro. They started out as reasonably competent, but not exceptional, tires. By 15,000 miles, with a good deal of tread left, they had degenerated into the noisiest tires that I have ever owned.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I have about 25k miles on these tires. They started out very quiet but now generate a lot of road noise. They have some tread left but probably not more than 5k or so miles. The road noise is bad enough that I am going to replace them. For the cost of these tires I expected more. I am ok with the miles as I am not easy on the tires but the road noise is just too much. Can get hankooks at 60% of the cost or continental dws for about 25% less. New these tires are great. Once the miles pile up they are nothing special. Not worth the extra dollars.

Comment:
These tires on my Camry have 3/32 left at 45000 miles on mostly highway driving. They have been rotated regularly at 6-8 K. Can't take a chance on more miles with winter just around the corner. Don't think I will buy them again.
