Go to tirerack.com and do a comparison shop.
You can buy Michelin Primacy MXV4 H rated for $150 each .... and you can buy Energy MXV4 S8 for $200 each. Thus, you can buy 4 new MXV4 Primacy for the same as 3 Energy.
Then compare the user ratings. Primacy comes out WAY WAY better. Primacy will go for 60,000 with no problem. Energy will go for 40,000 miles and on the tirerack survy, Energy owners say WOULD NOT BUY AGAIN !!!!!!
User rating of Energy: 4.2/10
User rating of Primacy: 8.1/10
