Description

Safe When New. Safe When Worn. Even when half-worn, it's still safe, thanks to EverGrip wet-braking technology. The Michelin Premier A/S tire still stops shorter on wet roads than leading competitors’ brand-new tires.

  • Shorter Stopping (Even when half-worn, it's still safe, thanks to EverGrip wet-braking technology. TheMichelin Premier A/S tire still stops shorter on wet roads than leading competitors’ brand-new tires);
  • Excellent Wet Grip and Lasting Winter Performance (With EverGrip Technology, extreme amounts of silica in tread compound provides exceptional wet grip for everyday handling, plus expanding rain grooves widen and emerging grooves open as the tire wears to maintain traction. Sunflower Oil keeps the EverGrip Compound flexible in lower temperatures along with many tread blocks and sipes that act as biting edges to cut through the snow);
  • Enjoy a Quiet, Comfortable Ride (Michelin Comfort Control Technology uses computer-optimized design and precision manufacturing to reduce vibrations and road noise).

Bought these expensive tires because of their estimated 80K mile tread life. The traction is well in the wet and snow. I drive a lot every day, made some road trips, aligned and rotated the tires as recommended. tread is short on 40K miles (less than three years). Wouldn't buy them again!

My car came with this Michelin tire and I've replaced them twice in 52,000 miles/4 years of owning this car. After two years I noticed tire noise. the dealership said the tires needed replaced, they only had 21.400 miles on them. The second time I've noticed that the two front tires had uneven wear and were bald on the edges. I had to replace them again. I'm very disappointed!

I've owned two sets of these tires. the first set was replaced at less than 30,000 miles and the second set is 18,000 miles in and it seems it need to be replaced soon. The tires have wonderful wet traction and handling but they wear out too fast. Despite of this fact, I'm ready to pay for safety.

I've owned two sets of these tires. the first set was replaced at less than 30,000 miles and the second set is 18,000 miles in and it seems it need to be replaced soon. The tires have wonderful wet traction and handling but they wear out too fast. Despite of this fact, I'm ready to pay for safety.
