Overall thoughts

Michelin Primacy MXM4 1

Like a real premium rubber, the tire guarantees a quiet and comfortable driving experience. The patented Helio Compound with oil is one of the main benefits of these tires. This rubber compound copes well with both high and subzero temperatures. Yes, the tires also perform well on snowy roads and ice.
With its asymmetrical tread pattern and rounded shoulders, you can be sure of easy cornering, narrow, and winding roads.
The tread, like most similar tires, has four wide circumferential grooves, which, together with 3-D sipes, resist aquaplaning and drain water from under the tire. The production also utilized the MaxTouch Construction on the tires, which extends the tire’s lifespan.

What are the service indicators?

Michelin Primacy MXM4 2

Michelin’s Primacy MXM4 tires use standard tread wear indicators that must be monitored to maintain good performance when driving in rainy and snowy conditions. These indicators are located in the annular grooves and become visible as the tread wear.
If the grooves are not deep enough, there will be little or no resistance to aquaplaning, making your driving unsafe. The minimum tread depth is 2/32 inches. When the value is close to this, the tires are recommended to be replaced.

What is the performance on dry, wet, and snowy surfaces?

Michelin Primacy MXM4 3

The Primacy MXM4 is the leader in its category when it comes to driving performance on dry roads. There are even some similarities to high-performance tires. In addition, the tire provides good grip at high speed and cornering, and also has the shortest braking distances among tires of the same class.
This model continues to surprise even in rainy weather while maintaining a good grip on the steering. The tires exhibit excellent aquaplaning resistance and do an excellent job of driving even in deep puddles.
The tires provide good traction even on snowy surfaces, although it won’t be difficult to find competitor models that handle these conditions better. Remember that this tire is not a perfect substitute for a winter tire set.

Is it suitable for off-road driving?
