I couldn't agree more!
I just replaced my OE Michelin Primacy MXV4 on the Altima in my signature, with Pirelli Cinturato P7 All-Season PLUS. And though the Pirelli's are a very nice tire indeed(smooth & quiet, good riding) and my 3rd set of them(and my 5th set of Pirelli's), they're not as serene as the Primacy MXV4's.
However, to replace these OE Michelin Primacy MXV4 in my size & speed rating(215-55-17 93V), would have cost me $223/each. Where as the Pirelli's cost me $103.50/each(normally $141/each).
Primacy MXV4 had perfect combination of comfort and road feel. Ironically-the one tire I have driven on that never would have bought-tire came on a used Lexus LS 400 I bought and still drive are the Radar Dimax AS-8 tires which I preferred over the Defenders have on the vehicle now.
This is a post I made reviewing these tires here on bitog.https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/foru...144853/radar-dimax-as-8-diamond-in-rough
