All tires should deliver peak performance when they’re new, but what happens when they get a little older? Michelin has addressed this issue with its Premier LTX 3-season tire. It delivers excellent wet-weather grip without compromising traction, even as the tire wears down. They achieved this by gradually expanding the rain grooves as the tread depth diminishes, allowing for increased water dispersal. The Premier LTX also features EverGrip technology, which includes a tire compound with a high silica content that repels water to improve traction. It also utilizes the natural properties of sunflower oil to remain flexible in colder temperatures. These innovations have helped the Premier LTX earn top marks in the wet and dry segments of our independent tire-testing program, including an ‘excellent’ rating for hydroplaning. This 3-season tire even scored well above average for snow and ice testing .

?Summer vs Winter Tests

BRAKING

We varied our approach speeds by driving surface and by season for two reasons. First, this represents how most Canadians would normally drive on that surface in each season. Second, testing in both seasons provides an indication of how a tire's performance will be affected by road temperature.

CORNERING

To understand how road surface temperatures affect the cornering performance of a tire, our cornering tests are completed in both summer conditions (dry and wet pavement, and gravel roads) and winter conditions (dry, wet and icy pavement). Please note that slush is also tested but completed in a specific slush cornering test..

?Independent & Objective Testing

The independent tire testers conducted extensive tests to determine how the tires in our core line-up perform in a range of conditions in both summer and winter. To maintain neutrality, no driver knew the specifics of the tires they were testing each time. All results were analyzed and processed by the testing group and then provided to Kal Tire for sharing with our customers.

Michelin Premier LTX
0.5
5 months ago by STEPHEN WEBSTER.

The Michelin Premier LTX came highly rated from the store manager but after only going 17,000 km the tires look visibly low from predominantly highway driving. In doing a check I'm at 5/32nds, started at 8.5 . At this rate they'll be done by 35000, a far cry from the 100,000 that is warrantied. The Kal tire review puts these high but Cdn Tires site and especially Michelin's own site, shows there is an issue with these tires wearing too fast. A warranty yes but in the mean time not getting the quality for wet conditions etc so soon after purchase. I recommend staying away from them to avoid the inconvenience and hassle despite the warranty and Kal Tire's support.
