Michelin´s best standard passenger car - minivan tire ever offering confident driving through exceptional safety, longevity and a quiet, comfortable ride so that you can protect those you care about most.

  • Exceptional grip provided by IntelliSipe™ Technology maximizes the number of sipes within the tire, which allows you to brake confidently when you need to most for greater peace of mind in stressful driving situations.
  • MaxTouch Construction combined with the interlocking action of Michelin´s Breakthrough IntelliSipe™ Technology delivers impressively long wear life by providing exceptional tread block rigidity while optimizing the tire´s contact with the road during acceleration, braking and cornering.
  • The interlocking action of IntelliSipes™ creates a more rigid tread block, which allows for a reduced starting tread depth leading to lower rolling resistance so you can save fuel without sacrificing safety or longevity.

Don't even bother with this tire. Rated at 90k but started falling apart at 20k. At first I thought my alignment was off and spent money two times trying to rebalance everything. Turns out these are garbage. Costco didn't honor the warranty because it looked like I abused these tires. Normally I get about 50k to 60k off basic BF Goodrich tires. Never again Michelin.

Absolute garbage...I was sort of lucky and got a 50% credit for new tires, since these ones lasted 30K km. Apparently, store said Michelin got skimpy on tread depth and the tires were not lasting very long. Initially, they were great, but if you barely get 30K km out of them, they are not so great. All fresh tires are good, but is how long they last that matters. They were marginal in snow. I started hydroplaning at 30K km and that was it for me. I thought Michelin were the best of the best? What a headache buying tires, nevermind cost. I've always been happy with fresh tires...you get a feel for their limitations, and all is good. These tires were great at beginning, but wear is atrocious. By 30k km I was avoiding driving in rain (or going real slow) and just using them for sunny weather driving. I hydroplaned on the smallest of puddles. Michelin should be ashamed of selling tires that don't last. Supposedly, I was to get 100k km out of them...good one. Lost a customer for life. Even the OEM Bridgstone Duellers were better, and that is saying a lot...many Saturn drivers hated them. I got a good 60K km out of them.
