Michelin Primacy MXV4 Tire Review & Rating

The Michelin Primacy MXV4 touring all-season tire is designed for drivers of all types of coupes, sedans, minivans, crossovers and other vehicles. Utilizing the latest in tire technology, Michelin has developed a tire built to provide comfort, all-season traction and a long tread life.

The symmetric tread design sports what Michelin calls Active 2-D Sipes, which alternately lock together and open as road conditions warrant to give additional biting edges that grip the road. The result is better traction in all types of weather conditions, whether it be rain, snow or slush.

Another area that this tire excels in is comfort and quietness. Michelin incorporates Comfort Control Technology, which uses a computer optimized design to create less vibration and road noise in the tire at all speed levels. It works very well and is an area that is mentioned by other drivers as a real plus in reviews. 

Tread wear is enhanced through Michelin’s MaxTouch Construction, which increases the tread contact patch for a longer and more even tread life, as well as better overall handling.

Inside the tire are two steel belts that are spirally wrapped with polyamide to give the tire added strength and stability at higher speeds, while also providing more comfort at the same time.

The Michelin MXV4 comes in a wide array of sizes and a 60,000 mile tread life warranty.


  • Dry and wet surface grip and handling are superb
  • Stability and steering response is among best in its class
  • Tread life is excellent
  • Tires ride comfortably and have virtually no road noise

  • Rare as it is, you’ll be hard-pressed to find any issues with this tire
