I had these tires installed at 86,600 miles (60,000 warranty) in 2014, and regularly had the tires balanced and rotated, and had one alignment, driving in all season conditions. Now, April 2017/158,660 miles, tread still good (not yet to the tread wear bars in the main water channels). My previous tires were another brand, also 60,000 mile tires that I replaced after about 50,000 miles. I'm waiting for my regular dealer to have their rotating "special" to come back to the Michelin brand and off the "other" brand, so I can get another set of Michelin Premier A/S at about 165,000 miles, and I expect them to get me well into the low 220K's!
I had MXV4s and my 2011 VW Tiguan was a joy to drive. Butter smooth and bumps were just a thump. I tried to test drive cars as the VW was getting older but couldn't find anything that rode half as nice. At 75k I had to replace tires before the winter and they don't make MXV4s anymore so went with Premier A/S. They ride like rocks. Jittery and loud on perfectly smooth roads, and jarring with the littlest bumps (even just tar used to fill in cracks in the road). Tires inflated perfectly and balanced perfectly, doesn't matter. Bumps literally rattle the car. My neck is starting to hurt again like when I had an 03 Accord.
Good service, friendly help, but understaffed. Had to wait 3 hours for new tire installment.
I own a 2009 Acura TSX and I just purchased my second set of Premier A/S. I rotated and balanced the first set of tires every 7000 miles (religiously) aligned my car every 15,000 miles and they lasted me 93,401 miles (4 years and 6 months
Best tires ever
I bought these tires 19,773 miles ago. I got a rejection sticker today because my 2 front tires need replacement! I drive my car less than 7,000 miles per year! I go to the grocery store and back! I'm beside myself because I can't afford new tires!
These tires are not what I was expecting for the price i paid for them very noisy and not a very good ride
I am so happy with these tires! There are several reviews that claim drivers only got 38k or less miles on this tire. I wonder if these drivers had proper inflation, perfect alignment and what road conditions for which they were using these tires. My experience is the tire wore down after 58,334 miles. That is how many miles I drove before the ?penny test? failed. However, I could probably drive another 5,000 miles safely. Given that I do a lot of long distance and business driving, I decided to replace them before they completely wore out.
Remember, these are touring tires meant for smooth, super quiet, luxury rides. If you are using these for strenuous driving, you?re better off with the sport edition. This is my personal experience and it?s possible that other drivers received defective tires or had them installed by a non-professional.
