  • So Far I Am Very Happy!

    Aug 29, 2010 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Outstanding performance on wet or dry pavement.
    Cons: Price to replace is steep.

    Summary: I will be the first to admit that when it comes to tires I am not even an armchair expert.  But, I know what a good set of times feel like on the pavement.  I recently purchased a gently used (3,341 miles) 2008 Cadillac CTS and the car ... read more

    Pros: None!
    Cons: Read above.

    Summary: The Pilot HX MXM4 P225/50R17 tires came on the '08 Honda Accord (V6) purchased new by my 70 year old wife.  They have worn out at 38K miles which is totally unexpected and totally unacceptable. I'm ready to replace them - but not with these tires or ... read more

    Pros: Michelin name and tire appearance.
    Cons: Noise.
    Vibration.
    Thumping sounds.

    Summary: The Michelin tires (MXM4 Pilot Tires), that came with my new 2009 Honda Accord EX-L V6, cause a vibration throughout the car.  This vibration persists at all speeds, and especially at highway speeds (55-75 mph).  It's like being on a vibrating ... read more

  • Stay Away From These Tires!!

    Jul 5, 2007 by

    Pros: Good treadlife, nice sidewall
    Cons: Noisy, traction wet and dry, ride, price

    Summary: I have an 06 VW GLI and when I was looking for the car I was also paying attention to the tires that came with it. It either came with ContiProContacts or these Michelin Pilots...being that we had great experience in the past with Michelin I made sure ... read more

  • Great tire, horrible price

    Apr 4, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: performance, longevity (and they look cool too if that matters to you)
    Cons: PRICE!!!

    Summary: First off the picture of the tire here looks nothing like the HX MXM4's I had, or that are displayed at Discount Tire's website- so I can only assume the we all go the name right and are talking about the same tire here. Mine came from the factory on ... read more

  • Michelin should be ashamed to put their names on these...

    Nov 19, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None
    Cons: Squeal and more squeal!! Poor handling - wet and dry.

    Summary: My last car was a VW Passat GLX that I bought a set of Michelin Pilot Sport A/S's for... and they were great tires - so when I moved to a 2004 Acura RSX my thought would be that it had Michelin Pilots - no brainer for tires. Turns out "no brains" was ... read more

    Pros: Good handling on dry and wet pavement. Comfortable ride for a sport tire.
    Cons: Very expensive.

    Summary: These tires came stock with my recently purchased 2004 Acura RSX. In the past several months, I’ve put about six thousand miles of use on them, in winter, spring and summer, in various kinds of weather and on every road imaginable. The ... read more

    Pros: Handling, Low noise, ride quality, ride quality and ride quality!
    Cons: Quality is not inexpensive.

    Summary: These tires are all about ride quality. There are tires that "perform" better and cost less but you will sacrifice something. That something is ride quality. If you are looking for a tire that will drive as smooth as your car should ride then spend ... read more

    Pros: Long lasting over 80k miles on them and never been balanced.  Quiet and great ride.
    Cons: Nothing.

    Summary: Bought my 2008 Mazda 6 with them on it from the factory.  I have 80,000 on them and they are still in balance.  I'm going to replace them now and get another set to go another 80k miles.  These tires are so great and you won't be ... read more

    Pros: Ride quality
    Traction in light snow
    Cons: Exhorbitant price
    Poor wet & dry traction

    Summary: Michelin MXM4's were issued as standard equipment on my Acura TSX when I purchased it from the dealer in 2005.  Immediately, I found the tires to offer very questionable performance on both wet and dry pavement.  Taking a cloverleaf ... read more

  • Not worth the money

    Pros: They are round, rubber, and hold air.
    Cons: Entirely too expensive

    Summary: These tires came OE on my 2005 Mazda6 and while I got 32k miles out of mine, I will not be buying another set of them. Their dry handling and traction is good, but their performance in the rain leaves some room for improvement. These tires are also ... read more

    Cons: bad traction, bad tread design, terrible wear life, not comfortable to ride on,

    Summary: I have five cars at the moment, and my wife and I each drive about 30,000 each year, plus I have two kids that drive, so I've purchased many tires over the past 20 years. These tires are some of the worst I've seen. I bought a new 2007 Honda Accord EX, ... read more

    Pros: handling and long wear
    Cons: price

    Summary: 2003 Mazda6 Sport. Completed 50,000 miles in a little over 2 years on these tires. Tires behaved themselves well in all conditions (rain, snow, heat, cold). Not an aggressive driver very often but these tires hold the road well. Rotated them every 10K ... read more

    Pros: Ride, Handling, cornering quiet
    Cons: price

    Summary: I just got these (245/45/R17) slapped on my Mercedes W211 (E class) to replace the Pilot MXV4's that came with it and I noticed a difference right away in both comfort and handling. Clearly this is a superior tire over all to the venerable MXV series. ... read more

    Pros: quiet, seem to wear well
    Cons: not for "spirited" driving, expensive

    Summary: These came on our VW Passat station wagon and they are quiet and provide a comfortable ride. Traction and handling or ok for commuting but they are nowhere near the level of a high performance summer tire. I haven't had the chance to try them in snow ... read more

    Cons: Everything else

    Summary: OE on 2002 RSX Type-S: I can't say these are the worst tires I've ever owned (the worst ones are the michelins that came on my Honda Civic!)... but for the amount of money I paid for my car, these tires are a joke. Dry handling's okay... until you have ... read more
