    Understanding Tires

    There is a lot of information on the sidewall of a tire. Typically, you'll find UTQG ratings for treadwear, traction and temperature, the size of the tire, the load rating index number with a speed rating index, the construction type (bias or radial), the D.O.T. compliance code, and construction details. On some tires used as original equipment, you may also find a marking that indicates its OE status.

    These tires are exceptional they grip the road excellently. I've driven at 100mph in the rain in these tires, and the do not spin or slide. I've driven on them in dry weather as well at 120mph and the are as solid as they come. Highly recommended and gives the car a sportier look.

    Best Tire All Around
    2013 Volkswagen Passat

    This is the first time I have a Michelin tire over a continental product and I will never go back. This product is better than any tire I ever owned. In addition to the quiet, smooth and better performance, the tire looks great. So far this tire has performed in the heat as well as the rain as I expect a quality tire to perform. Next step is to try these tires in the winter and with some snow and this will define my overall conclusion. I'm sure they will perform and provide the quality I expect. Overall this brand and these tires are worth the extra money. If you want quality and performance pay for these tires and skip the cheap imitations.

    Can not go wrong with a Michelin. We drive our Audi all the time over all types of roads and weather. This is a great tire for our use.

    Tires and wheels were ordered at the same time with the wheel and tire mounted. All that had to be done was installing on the car.

    The tires look really good. Haven't had a chance to drive around yet in the Vette cause of the weather, but I am sure they will be fine.

    2007 Honda CR-V
    | Posted by | (Midland, OH)

    I have a set of Mich. Cross Terrains on our 2007 RT4WD CRV. They were put on it just before we purchased it with 91000km on it. They had 9/32" tread then and 13000km. later they have 7/32" left. They have stayed in balance, they are quiet and fairly sticky on ice, but not as good as ice tires. They are the recommended size for the CRV. It gets around 10L/100km. I would use/buy them again.

    The Primarcy's MXM4 are excellent. I'm on my 2nd year with a set (maybe 20K miles so far). I've used them for autocross and regular driving, which is a combo of Interstate and secondary roads. They donor very well, have a nice stopping response, and aren't noisy. I think I made a great choice.

    Very quiet for a traction tire
    2000 Dodge Ram
    | Posted by | (Acme, AB)

    I've got the XPS Rib on the front and the XPS Traction on the rear of my truck. They are very quiet for a traction tire. The truck rides good and handles good. So far I have about 45,000 miles on them and look good for another 45,000. I don't go in mud, mainly pastures pulling a trailer so I didn't need the traction tires up front.

    Amazing
    2013 Dodge Dart
    | Posted by | (Sarasota, FL)

    Have Xice2 on my wife's Accord. Amazing on snow, ice, and unplowed roads. Others can claim to be almost as good, none is better. Highly recommended if you drive outside Tarana on a regular basis, especially for winter road trips. But they are squishy on dry roads. Never noticed the noise... with the radio on.

    2012 Audi A7
    | Posted by | (Chicago, IL)

    I've had the Pilot Sport A/S 3 for three weeks now. They replaced Hankook Ventus V12's and I find them to be an improvement in most areas. The grip is very good in the dry and impressive in the wet. They are pretty quiet too. The sidewalls are quite a bit firmer than the Hankooks, which helps in the handling department but bumps can be felt a bit more. I am very pleased with them.
