Michelin PRIMACY 3 features

Optimal performance, excellent grip and a stable driving experience in any situation are the main attributes of the Michelin PRIMACY 3. The tyre is noted for its innovative construction, specially designed to handle difficult weather and road conditions. Its asymmetric tread pattern means that it disperses water very quickly, preventing the car from skidding. Wide grooves help disperse water to the sides, which means that the liquid layers are removed from under the tyre, ensuring that it maintains its grip.

The model has been designed from an innovative compound noted for its lightness and durability. The light compound reduces rolling resistance, resulting in lower fuel consumption - in the space of a year this can mean big savings for the driver. Reduced fuel consumption also results in lower CO2 emissions, which helps limit the tyre's negative impact on the environment.


The model is particularly well suited to drivers looking for optimal performance in any weather and in any conditions. The Michelin PRIMACY 3 ensures a quiet and comfortable driving experience. Thanks to the model's construction, tyre noise is instantly muffled. Optimal performance, shorter braking distances and excellent steerability are all features that mean that the Michelin PRIMACY 3 has gained the recognition of even the most demanding drivers.


Michelin is a French company and one of the largest tyre groups in the world. The company was founded in 1889 in Clermont-Ferrand, where it has its headquarters to this day. Michelin specialises in the production of premium tyres noted for their optimal performance and excellent manufacturing quality. The French group owns brands such as: Kleber, Riken, BFGoodrich, Kormoran, Taurus, Saimtyre, Warrior, Tigar, Recamic and Euromaster. Thanks to its logo – Bibendum or the Michelin Man – Michelin is the most recognisable tyre brand in the world.

    Michelin Primacy 3 completely didn't fulfill its purpose despite the fact I have struggled with them for four months. I have a Volvo S60 T5 tuned to 290HP. The seller said they would do the job - they didn't. On dry they are even fine, but as soon as it starts to rain, TCS goes crazy; also they feathered after 6000 miles despite the fact my shocks are new and the whole suspension was replaced with new original parts. The tyres got so loud that you can't talk at 55 MPH. Michelin Primacy 3 are just another evidence for the fact that French things are just useless. My Volvo accelerates to almost 170 MPH, but if anyone wants to drive that fast, then not on these tyres despite the fact they are rated up to 186 MPH. I bought Michelin Primacy 3 two times - first and last time. This is just a waste of money.

    First of all, I do pretty much distance all around the country. I got new Michelin Primacy 3 tyres in April - a set of four 215/50 R17 XL 95 W. The car I fitted the tyres to is a Peugeot 5008 2.0 HDI. After 13 thousand miles mark hit in October, all I can do with them is to thow them into the bin as they wore off below the wear indicator. The tyre of such class should withstand at least 30-40 thousand miles in my opinion. I will definitely not buy Michelin Primacy 3 again. In dry conditions they brake superbly, but on wet or in muddy conditions - it's not even worth to talk about it. My driving style is dynamic, but without any aggressive maneuvers or braking if not necessary.

    Vybral jsem si tyto pneumatiky po rozhovoru s konzultantem na telefonu, vybral jsem několik modelů podle štítků a ceny, a požádal jsem o srovnání. Nakonec jsem po analýze návrhů prodávajícího koupil úplně jiný a dražší než jsem chtěl (Primacy 3) a jsem s nákupem velmi spokojený. Pneumatiky nejsou příliš hospodárné (nákup a vykořisťování), ale cítím se sebevědomě, bez ohledu na to, zda jedu na suché silnici nebo prší (jak v v zatáčkách, tak i při zrychlování / brzdění). Neměl jsem problém s vyvážením pneumatik, jsou mírně tiché. Jak jsem psal dříve - cena odpovídá kvalitě + značka Michelin podle mého názoru stále patří mezi nejlepší producenti pneumatik.

    The Michelin Primacy 3 tyres were problematic from the very moment I fitted them. Three out of 4 were vibrating during the check. When checking the tread during spinning, you could feel your hand jump. During driving above certain speeds I could feel vibrations on my steering wheel, and I could hear loud humming from the tyres. Unfortunately, Michelin Primacy 3 are an evidence that Michelin has dropped their quality level... The tyres were manufactured in Germany in 2013.

    I have the Michelin Primacy 3 tyres for a few seasons now. I did over 85000 miles, and the tread is still all right... However, I have to replace them because the rubber starts to decay, otherwise they would serve for one more season. I have nothing to complain about both on dry and on wet, I also forgot what ABS is... I wonder is I have it in the car now. Michelin Primacy 3 is a very durable tyre, worth the price paid for.
