I have a 2011 Sonata Limited Turbo (245-45-18). The factory tires were just to loud after 31k miles. The #1 thing I wanted in this tire was a reduction in noise. While I did get that, it was only a limited amount. This tire performs like you expect. I think my problem is more with the ride quality/road noise of the Sonata than the tires. The 18" rims & 45 series tires on the 2011 Sonata don't lend itself to superior noise reduction. Given the price I paid for these tires, I may consider the Hankook tire that Consumer Reports rated to well as it's a good bit cheaper & supposedly quieter. They only sell it in a 50 series though & I'm not sure there is enough clearance for a 50.

Tire Pros

very quiet; predictable handling.

Tire Cons

mpg not as good as stock Toyo's.

These tires are a great balance of comfort, quiet, and handling. Rounded shoulders befit sport sedans that don't have stiff suspensions. Very well behaved at the limit and on rough/uneven surfaces. Much quieter than my previous Continental DWS.

Tire Pros

Quiet, smooth riding

Tire Cons

weak when cornering hard

We replaced the OE tires on our Kia Soul Sport with these Michelin MXM4's. First off, these tires are far superior to the OE tires. The ride is much smoother and the road noise is far less. These alone are worth the extra investment. Steering response is quicker as the Soul responds willingly to steering inputs. However, these tires do not instill confidence during hard cornering. They will squeal as a warning to back off. Remember this when on freeway on/off ramps. The few times we have driven in the rain, these tires have gripped well under normal driving conditions with no loss of traction at highway speeds. Cornering in wet conditions has been impressive. There has been no opportunity for driving in any snow here in the Phoenix metro area so far. Treadwear has been very even with no cupping or feathering. Probably one of the reasons why the tires have remained so quiet. We have been very happy with these Michelin Primacy MXM4 tires and would recommend them.
