Michelin Primacy MXM4 Review

Michelin Primacy MXM4 Review: Excellent but Costly

The touring and grand-touring tire categories are by far the most popular on the market. That’s mostly thanks to the value these tires provide – they aren’t overly expensive, yet they offer outstanding treadlife and last for at least 4-5 years.

The thing that these tires aren’t known for is performance – they simply lack in the handling department. Michelin, being the most advanced tire manufacturer in the world, saw an opportunity here.

With the Primacy MXM4, the company wanted to give drivers of luxury and performance cars the long treadlife of a grand-touring tire, with the responsive and grippy handling of a high-performance tire.

Michelin Pilot Super Sport Review

Michelin Pilot Super Sport Review: Starts to Show its Age

The only thing that you need to enjoy driving, apart from a good sports car, is a set of nice performance tires. This is something that most drivers forget about, which is why I always try to remind them – tires are the single most important thing for a better driving experience. Forget about tuning your engine for more power – it’s the tires that make the largest difference.

And, for over a decade, one of the most popular performance tire options for owners of premium sports cars was the Michelin Pilot Super Sport. This tire already has a successor in the Pilot Sport 4S, sure, but Michelin still offers the tire in many popular sizes. These dimensions cover most popular sports cars, including hot hatches, sports coupes, supercars, and even some performance SUVs.

Michelin Pilot Sport 4S Review

Michelin Pilot Sport 4S Review: Outstanding Tire for Driving Enthusiasts

The Michelin Pilot Sport 4S is designed for enthusiast drivers and owners of performance cars, Michelin’s max-performance summer tire offers vastly better performance on the road than standard touring all-season tires. The difference is so vast that you will be able to feel it even at lower speeds.

Moreover, Michelin offers the Pilot Sport 4S in an astonishingly high number of sizes – no other competitor in the sector does that. You can have this tire in 17-inch wheel diameter and up to 22-inch wheel diameter.

With that said, let’s see what Michelin says about its flagship road-performance tire before we delve into the details of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S review.

Michelin Latitude Tour Review

Michelin Latitude Tour Review: Solid, but not Exceptional

According to Michelin, the Latitude Tour is a crossover/SUV touring tire designed for a quiet ride, outstanding fuel efficiency, long treadlife, and impressive on-road comfort and handling. To be honest, though, you will read almost the same things on the websites on other manufacturers, even those that produce cheaper alternatives.

Before we jump to any conclusions, though, let’s see what Michelin has to say about the features of the Latitude Tour.

Michelin CrossClimate SUV Review

Michelin CrossClimate SUV Review: an Excellent (and Pricey) All-Rounder

The CrossClimate SUV is a tire designed for owners of crossovers, SUVs, and trucks that want usable traction on dry, wet, and snowy surfaces. Michelin calls it an all-season tire, but it actually belongs to the newly-named all-weather category. The French company also offers the CrossClimate, a similar tire designed for owners of compact cars, sedans, and minivans.

Michelin X-Ice Xi3 Review

Michelin X-Ice Xi3 Review: an Excellent Winter Tire

When it comes to driving in foul wintry weather, there is no better choice than a proper winter tire. Sure, some all-season or all-weather tires can provide you with some traction, but those are still far from usable in very demanding situations, such as deep snow, ice, or slush.
And, when you look for winter tires, make sure that you opt for Nordic winter tires, like the Michelin X-Ice Xi3. These tires are designed primarily for extremely cold winter weather, and surfaces covered with snow, slush, or ice.

Michelin X-Ice Snow Review

Michelin X-Ice Snow Review: Designed for the Extreme Winter Conditions

The latest premium winter tire on the market is the Michelin X-Ice Snow. A successor to the best-selling X-Ice Xi3, the newest winter tire in Michelin’s arsenal, brings several improvements to the table. And, if we judge by the quality of the X-Ice Xi3, these improvements should launch the X-Ice Snow directly on the top of the category.

Lexani Tires Review: Eye-Catching Design, Subpar Performance

Arguing about cheap tires on the internet (and in real life) gets on my nerves quickly. Some people simply don’t understand that you get what you pay for. And, more importantly, that you can’t put a price on safety. Let’s take Lexani as an example. The South-Korean manufacturer is already a big name in the …
