Comment:
I've gone through 2 sets of these tires on an Acura RSX. The first set were factory installed, I got 57,500 miles out of them. I liked them and purchased the second set at Costco, I've got over 80,000 miles on them and they still have 3/32 of tread left, which I don't feel is sufficient to get through another winter in Pittsburgh. Tires are quiet, traction during winter driving is excellent. I would describe my driving as spirited at times, my RSX base is not fast, but is a fun car to drive. I highly recommend these tires.

Normal driving. I have 70000 miles on them to date and still look to have another 10k on them. Travel about 15k a year. Will buy the exact same tires in 2015. I have rotated them every 7500 miles. They are everything cr reported them to be.

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.
