Quiet and comfortable
I had this tire for about 2 weeks only. I use 215/60/R16 size to fit on my2004 Mazda MPV. My
MPV had DUNL0P, then Y0K0HAMA YK580, then Michelin Defender, and now Premiere A/S.
By far, this Premiere A/S is the best!
3 years ago when I purchased Defender because it had an amazing tread life (820AB).
However, I ran about 35,000 miles, and Defender had only1/3 of its tread life left. That
means, it would onlyrun at most 50,000 miles, much less than 80,000 miles that Michelin
claimed. Also, Defender disappointed me this winter with its poor handling on the snow and
ice.
Once I changed to Premiere A/S, I immediatelynoticed that it was quieter and softer (more
comfortable) than Defender. It also feels smoother on ride. But compared to myanother
SUV which has Michelin PrimacyMXV4, the noise and ride feeling between the two are
about the same.
I have not noticed any mileage advantage yet. And the handling to me feels about the same
compared to Defender. It is too earlyfor me to tell its tread life. And since now it is spring, I
have to wait till next winter to tell its handling on snow and ice.
Overall, this Premiere A/S feels verysimilar to MXV4, which is smooth and quiet. Had I
known this, I would order MXV4 instead because I might save $20 per tire!

Simply................Awesome!
Purchased a set of 245/45R18's for my 2006 LS430. Had a 4 wheel alignment done and tire
pressure set @ 40 psi. We immediately noticed how quiet these tires are! We could faintly
hear the V-8 in our LS as it was going up through the gears. Braking is silent. Highwayis
silent. Couldn't be more pleased! Thank you Michelin!

Great tires
Replaced myOEM tires for my Chevy CRUZE, Wow what a difference in handling and road
noise. I recommend these tires. Can't wait until next winter to see how theyhandle in the
snow. The onlyreason I am dropping it one star is the price. I never sent so much for tires.
(MICH Premier A/S 215-60R16 95V - 22475).
I didn't rate Wear-Life and Fuel Efficiency because I don't have enough information to rate
them.

Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is for a tire only(i.e., excluding services such as mounting, balancing and tire disposal) and is applicable for the contiguous
United States. Actual pricing mayvarybased on retailer, region, tire size and other factors. Retailers are free to set individual prices. Please check with your local Michelin tire
dealer for pricing near you.
1 Based on internal wet braking tests from 40 and 50 MPH versus Goodyear®Assurance®Tripletred™ A/S tires in sizes 235/55R17 99H and P215/60R16 94V,
Bridgestone®Turanza™ Serenity Plus in size P215/60R16 95V; using the MICHELIN®Premier®A/S tires in sizes 235/55R17 99H and 215/60R16 95V buffed to 5/32" of
tread. Actual on-road results mayvary.
>>The sizes shown are average design values for tires measured on specified measuring rim widths. Some tires may vary from this value by+/-3% of the section height
(affecting overall diameter), and +/-4% of the section width.
>>Section width varies approximately0.2" (5mm) for every 0.5" change in rim width.
>>Tread patterns are often tuned to accomodate different tire widths. Tires for a particular dimension of a given tireline mayvary in appearance from the tire shown in the
photograph.
WARNING: Serious or fatal injury mayresult from tire failure due to underinflation or overloading. To ensure correct air pressure and vehicle load, refer to vehicle owner's
manual or tire information placard on the vehicle. Serious injuryor death mayresult from explosion of tire/rim assembly due to improper mounting. Only tire professionals
should mount tires and theyshould never inflate beyond 40 psi to seat the beads. Before mixing types of tires in anyconfiguration on anyvehicle, be sure to check the
vehicle owner's manual for its recommendations.
DANGER: Never mount a 16" diameter tire on a 16.5" rim.
DANGER: Never mount a 17" diameter tire on a 17.5" rim.
Inflation pressure increase must not exceed the maximum pressure branded on the tire sidewall. When a customer requests a replacement tire with a lower speed rating
than the original equipment tire, you must clearlycommunicate to him or her that the handling of the vehicle maybe different, and that its maximum speed capabilityis
limited to that of the lowest speed-rated tire on the vehicle. Exceeding the lawful speed limit is neither recommended nor endorsed.
For high-speed driving, additional inflation pressure and possiblyreduced tire loading and/or upsizing is required. In the absence of specific recommendations bythe
vehicle manufacturer, use the following guidelines based on those in the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organization Standards Manual.
For speeds over 160km/h (100 mph), load and inflation must be adjusted according to the table below.
H-Speed Rated Sizes:
Maximum Speed (mph) 100 106 112 118 124 130
