PREMIER A/S

Grand Touring All-Season

Overall Rating (9.5)


Safe when new. Safe when worn. The Michelin Premier A/S tire still stops shorter on wet roads than leading competitors brand-new tires.

Features and Benefits:

  • Even when worn, the Michelin Premier A/S tire still stops shorter on wet roads than most leading competitors brand-new tires.
  • EverGrip technology with extreme amounts of silica in tread compound provides exceptional wet grip for everyday handling, plus expanding rain grooves widen and emerging grooves open as the tire wears to maintain traction.
  • Sunflower oil keeps the EverGrip compound flexible in lower temperatures along with many tread blocks and sipes that act as biting edges to cut through the snow.
  • Comfort Control Technology used computer-optimized design and precision manufacturing to reduce vibrations and road noise.

Comments These tires are an amazing improvement over the OEM Michelin Pilots. The road noise is noticeably improved. I've also noticed that these tires eat up most cracks and bumps in the road resulting in a very smooth ride on the highway. Rain performance has been excellent as well. I love these tires and would buy them again in an instant.

Comments These tires made my Prius into a performance car. I enjoyed them a lot, but ended up with the Michelin Energy Saver A/S for fuel economy reasons. The Energy Savers improved my fuel economy by 2-3 mpg over the stock tires and about 5 mpg over the Premier. In every other way the Premier is a better tire, but if you have Snow Tires (Michelin X-Ice 2) it may not be a concern.

Comments Great performance. Thanks to the 30 days test drive I was able to compare an unknown brand with Michelin tires. Michelin is way better in handling and perfomance, even when roads are wet.
