Comment:
We are on the road 300+ days a year, 60,000+ miles and have always thought Michelin's were the best, until now. They don't make the size LTX M&S we need for 2 of the top suv's in the world. So these were what came on the SUV's. Dealer wouldn't change. Vehicles are good, as no difference than last years models. Wouldn't know it with these tires. Numerous close calls due to the tires and stuck more than once in a mild winter. Might be ok for Florida, but not Pa.

Comment:
The Midwest climate in Iowa challenges the performance attributes of any tire. <br />Dry, wet, ice and snow packed pavement would be difficult to negotiate for most tires; however, the Michelin MXV4's are remarkably competent. There's only one thing between you and the pavement (at 75 mph!) so choose carefully. <br />Thank you to CR for providing valuable information. It's always been my contention that CR's analysis identifies those products that are potentially harmful.

Tires are mounted in a 2004 Toyota Sienna with alloy wheels. I replaced my second set of Michelin's with the Primacy tires. The tires handled very well in all but heavy show and ice until about 30,000 miles. I then started to notice a decrease in performance. I now have 37,000 miles on the tires and they are down to 2/32 of tread. None of the Michelin tires I have had over the last 20 years have exceeded more that 2/3 of their stated tread life. The only Michelin's that ever met or exceeded the stated tread life were the old Michelin X.Except for the poor tread life, this is a great tire and I would recommend it only for it's great handling.
