The Michelin Primacy MXV4 are a replacement for my 2010 Camry LE that had original Bridgestone EL400. The Bridgestones wore out at 20K miles. I was worried that the Camry design was, although very comfortable, hydroplaned at the first sign of rain on the road. With the Michelin Primacy MXV4 installed I went out on a rainy morning looking for standing water. What I observed was that I could not find any sign of hydroplaning. I don't think this tire can compare in heavy rains with tires like the old Michelin Hydroedge or Goodyear tripletread, but it is above average.
Ride comfort is very good. Today's cars run tires at a higher preasure than in the past to improve fleet gas mileage, so correct tire pressure is important to comfort on those city tar strips.
Cornering and dry pavement traction is what you would expect for an OEM replacement tire. Secure and predictable in the turns and emergency maneuvers.
Balance on the tires are what you would expect from a quality tire. Smooth with no wobble, pulling or vibrations.
I have no idea how these tires wil work in the snow. I am hoping for the best as the tread design is not what one would expect to help in winter but I am hoping the large amount of well designed sipes will surprise me.

I'm a professional truck driver and when it comes to choosing the right tires there is only one advice: MICHELIN. That's the brand I buy for my semi and my personal vehicles. Yes, they are a little pricier but you get what you pay for. When it comes to traction, ride, handling, rolling resistance (very important for gas mileage) nothing outperforms Michelin tires. Period.
I bought a set of Primacy MXV4 for my VW Passat and I love them.
By the way, if you are still a little skeptical check out an independent source like Consumer Reports and you'll find this tire to be the best rated in its category (performance all season).

The only tire I would consider for wife's car. Great road handling, and long life. Amazon had best price by far on the net. Would highly recommend for mid to full size sedans.

These tires came on my 2013 Nissan Altima and I have absolutely no complains about them. I recently got a nail in my right front one; however, and currently have it plugged. I am told that because it is within two inches of the sidewall that it is dangerous, so I find myself here, ordering two to replace the one and keep even tread on the other. I just hate the fact that I am replacing something that has so much life left in it :(
Anyhow, this is a great product. I have never hydroplaned and they actually do well in the snow. Good gas mileage too, although I have no other tires to compare it to. I would definitely recommend these to anyone with a mid or full size sedan. You will not be disappointed.

Did a lot of research before buying these tires. I am not disappointed. Smooth, quiet ride. Solid grip, even in the rain. And best price was here on Amazon.com!

Ok so I'm leaving a review even though I bouth them at Sams Club. I had Goodyear Eagle LS-2 tires on my car beforehand (stock from factory). The switch was noticeable instantly. Also, went from 26-27ish to 31-32ish mpg. I live in the blue ridge so this increase in gas is huge for the mountain roads, up and down up and down. Buy them without hesitation, great tire. Very comfy, VERY quiet and GREAT gas mileage. Full size and sport sedan owners choose this one.

Excellent tire for 07 Ford Five Hundred. After 2+ years, still performing well and good gas mileage. Only down side is road noise got noticeably louder after first 20-30,000 miles.

I have these tires on my 2001 VW Jetta GLX. It requires an H rated tire (130mph) and the Primacy is simply the best tire I have ever had on this car, or any car. Without going to a true performance/racing tire, it is virtually impossible to improve upon the performance. In fact, in some measures, this tire will easily outperform a "performance" tire. I have driven on these tires up Mt. Lemmon in winter, with packed snow on the roads above 6,000 ft. at speeds of up to 45mph in turns and 60 mph on straights, on packed snow! I have driven in the Tucson monsoons, with an inch of standing water on the road at speeds up to 45mph with uncompromising braking performance! I have driven at sustained speeds of 100mph+ for an hour or more with absolutely no temperature related loss of grip and I have pushed the limits of the tire's performance on the twisties many a time.
Specifically on that note, I recently was driving on one of my favorite roads in the foothills, when I negotiated a hard 90 at around 60mph. The grip was consistent and predictable up to the verge of the breaking point. The tires gave a loud, moderately high-pitched wail, a haunting moan worthy of a horror flick, when dangerously close to the limit of adhesion. I would like to note that I have had advanced theoretical and practical training in high-performance driving and have over 250k miles under my belt and you "should not try this at home" and the bend on which I tested the performance envelope was fully protected by a guardrail! I am also an FAA certified Aircraft Mechanic who keeps his car in an excellent state of repair.
The practical conclusion for the majority of you is this is a tire worthy of trusting your life to. It will give consistently exceptional performance under all conditions and will give you fair warning when you are asking too much. They also don't cost too much. I got mine for a steal at Costco. In my youth, I wrecked a perfectly nice car because I went cheap on tires. Worst mistake I ever made!
