Michelin Premier A/S Tire Review & Rating
There’s a good reason why so many other tire companies try to compare their tires to those from Michelin… because Michelin stands at the forefront of the latest in tire technology. Their newest model, the Premier A/S, which will replace the older Primacy MXV4, is a perfect example of this. Built for all types of coupes, sedans, crossovers and minivans, this new tire has never before seen technology in the tread that is designed to provide the highest in all-season performance.
A silica and sunflower oil tread compound features Michelin’s new EverGrip safety technology, which is a game changer for delivering long lasting wet traction. This new technology expands the rain grooves as the tire wears, giving it the ability to remove water and continue delivering wet traction. In addition, new grooves that were hidden in the rubber begin to emerge and start evacuating water and also provide added grip. The result is a tire that brakes and performs like new, even as it wears down.
The addition of sunflower oil in the tread compound, and added sipes around the tire that provide biting edges, which further enhance traction on snow and ice by making the tread more pliable in extreme cold temperatures.
Inside the tire you’ll find twin steel belts with a polyester cord body for added strength and durability. The Premier AS is available in sizes ranging from 15 to 18 inches and in H or V-speed ratings. Michelin also includes a 60,000 mile warranty.
- Solid dry traction and cornering stability
- Excellent wet grip
- Latest Michelin tire technology
- Very smooth and comfortable ride
- Nothing that truly stands out as a negative
Even though Michelin tires can be among the more expensive models over some of their competitors the fact is, in most cases you get what you pay for in this business. This new Premier A/S may cost a bit more than a cheap tire, but you get real quality in return.
If you drive in climates that get any amounts of rain, you will like this new EverGrip technology built into the tire. We believe it’s a true game-changer. Testing by Michelin has shown that even as this tire has worn down it still provides better braking performance than other leading brand new tires.
Ride comfort is excellent on this model and road noise is lower than that of the MXV4, which is very good in itself.
Overall, Michelin has a great reputation, and rightly so, and the new Premier A/S only extends this even further. Simply stated, this is a solid and dependable new touring all-season tire that ranks right near the best in class. Highly recommended.
