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!
The tire handles, stops, and is good in the rain. The noise on my 2011 Honda Civic is really bad! I had Mxv4 ( I believe that was the model of my old tires). I really liked them but was told that these replaced them. Between 55 to 68 mph I can drive beside an 18 wheeler and drowned out the noise of the truck tires. The car has been checked and their is nothing wrong with it. The noise started when I put the tires on. The good news is above 75 mph the noise leaves, but it's kind of hard to travel at that pace most of the time!
Purchased my vehicle brand new less than two years ago, regular rotations amd balance so imagine surprise when at 34000 miles I was told they were toast. Lost a Michelin fan for life.
I bought these tires last July and they only lasted 15,000 miles and not the 60,000 as advertised. I do not recommend these tires to anyone. Never buying Michelin again...
After being recommended by my tire shop, we purchased four of these tires for our 2015 Subaru Forester XT. We did regular tire rotation and air pressure checks. At just over 35,000 miles the wear bars are showing. Very disappointed in that we only got this many miles out of these tires.
Four new Premier A/S tires on my 2008 Civic Ex sedan and it handles like the two Acuras I used to own. Incredibly responsive cornering, quick stops/strats, quiet, and great gas mileage. Traction is wet conditions is excellent, as is driving on ice and snow (better than most all season tires). If they are anything like previous Michelins I have owned, they will last at least 50k miles, probably longer. The tire salesman tried to talk me out of “performance tires” for this car (recommended slightly less expensive Michelin Defenders, which I’m sure are good and probably a little “softer” on bad roads), but I am so glad I spent a few extra dollars to get these. Driving is fun again!
This tire has been very comfortable and wore evenly. However, add me to the list of people who is very disappointed in this tire's wear warranty. Wear is rated "10" but should be much less. Now I have to pay the pro rate share for new tires long before I was planning to. I bought 60,000 mile tires thinking they would last much longer than they did.
