Michelin tires are often considered the gold standard among tires. There is a reason that almost all competing companies use it as a reference point. Michelin also does not show any signs of slowing down because its product continues to evolve and become better all the time.
When writing this Michelin Premier A/S review, we can’t avoid mentioning the Michelin Primacy MXV4 which this tire replaces. With the Primacy MXV4 already being a best-in-class tire, Michelin has one-upped itself by introducing an all-season tire that goes beyond its predecessor. On the Premier A/S tire, there is new and never-before-seen technology that makes the Premier A/S one of the best all-season tires out there.

Michelin Premier A/S review - How Do They Do It?
Using a sunflower oil compound on its treads coupled with Michelin’s EverGrip safety technology and you have new tires with exceptional tread blocks that do wonders on just about any surface out there. It could be bone-dry asphalt or wet roads and this tire will give you a peaceful ride without breaking a sweat.
Tires will usually fair well on dry roads but where their capabilities are put to the test is when they are subject to not-so-ideal conditions. During torrential rain with minimal visibility, if the tires have good wet traction, this could mean that you are in safe hands. The EverGrip wet-braking technology expands the rain grooves in the tires as it wears down which makes it a lot easier to wick away water from the tire. These awesome tires do all of this with no compromise on ride quality while also offering a smooth ride.
Commute Experience Similar To Winter Tires
The tires perform quite well during winters, however, they won’t be your best bet when it comes to driving in deep snow.
Tire Wears Slowly
The Premier A/S comes from a line of great tires that have always excelled when it comes to all-season performance. The tire tread wears comparably slower to other variants in the same class, so you achieve a pleasant ride for years to follow. The tread compound, together with the sipes around the edges of the tires gives it biting edges which allow for it to give a smooth and quiet ride while also delivering excellent wet grip.
As is the case with many different Michelin products, this radial tire also has twin steel belts reinforced with a polyester casing ply. These two steel belts along with spirally wrapped polyamide cord add to the strength and durability of the tire, giving it a much longer tread life. To ensure the tire remains unhinged for the long haul, please make sure that it is inflated to the right PSI rating. It would be best to check online or its manual to know what the adequate tire pressure is.
