A 2007 Nissan Altima 2.5 S driver on tirerack.com admitted it "Road grip on wet conditions is good as well, haven't driven much on snow except for some light flurries so can't comment on that."

As you can see, the  Michelin Primacy MXV4 is a great all-season tire that offers excellent traction and control on both wet and dry roads. The long tread life and superior wet grip make it an excellent choice for drivers who are looking for safe and comfortable tires.

Snow And Ice Performance

The light snow traction for Michelin Primacy Mxv4 is good, it would be enough for a regular winter in most states. However, if you live in an area with heavy snowfall, then these tires might not be the best option for you.

The deep snow traction is not very good because the tires lack enough sipes for adequate biting edges on the snow. Still, you can drive with Michelin Primacy Mxv4 during heavy snowfalls, but only in emergency situations.

The ice traction of the Michelin Primacy MXV4 is also not very good, so these tires are not suitable for icy conditions. If you live in an area with frequent snowfall and icy roads, then these tires may not be the best option for you. Their ice and deep snow traction are not the best, so you might want to look for tires that are better suited for those kinds of conditions.

A 2007 Volvo S60 2.5T AWD driver on the same website added "When these tire finally got to experience snow my Volvo with awd was an absolute tank when I drove to my in the winter." Though, you can also find not very pleasant comments about Michelin Primacy Mxv4 snow roads performance, like this one from a 2014 Honda Accord Coupe LX-S owner "They aren't something you should play around with in the snow, but on wet with VSA or dry, they are hugging, fast and fun!"

After this Michelin Primacy Mxv4 review, it can be concluded that these tires are good all-season tires that offer good traction and control in both wet and dry conditions. The long tread life and superior wet grip make them an excellent choice for drivers who are looking for safe and comfortable tires. 

However, their ice and deep snow traction are not very good, so if you live in a region with frequent icy roads or heavy snowfall, then you might want to look for a tire better suited for those conditions.

Treadwear Performance

N/A
N/A

Treadwear is vital to many things, not just how often the tires need replacement. Hydroplaning and wet weather are both critical factors that wear down your tire quickly. The warranty covers any defects in what you bought but only for a limited period or when there's minimal tread left on them.

Wet Perfomance

8.4
8.9

The wet performance score is a new thing that tire manufacturers are trying to achieve. The hydroplaning resistance, wet traction, and steering response all influence this new grading system.

Hydroplaning Resistance
i

The hydroplaning resistance is measured by the hydroplane depth test and the dynamic aquaplaning test, which measures how much water can be accumulated on the tire's surface before hydroplaning occurs.

8.4
8.9
Wet Traction
i

Wet traction estimates the level of grip on wet pavement. Tread design with deep grooves dramatically improves confidence when driving in the rain as they channel the water out much better.

8.4

7.7

Winter Performance score helps us understand if the tire is the appropriate option for winter conditions that your vehicle will face. Dedicated winter tires provide a firm grip when driving through snow and on ice. Performance winter tires boast a higher speed rating and better handling but deliver modestly lower ice and snow traction.

Light Snow Traction
