    Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 are really excellent tyres. I bought them because they perfomed very well in the ADAC tests. I used them in various conditions: fresh deep snow, ice covered with coarse gravel (they don't do actual snow clearing in Slovakia), slush, wet and dry surface. Everytime it had great grip. Some examples: - light frost, foggy, rime frost starting to appear and black ice, I checked the road's slippiness and no problems withnormal braking. During a very sharp one ABS switches on; - very steep (the slope was about 15 - 20%), about 1/4 mile long covered with compact snow, my car went up the hill without any problems, - driving on snow and ice in Slovakia, wide roads sprinkled with tiny stones - you can drive safely at about 60-70km/h, if you don't make any sudden movements then you have full control of the vehicle - driving in slush - all slush gets beautifully drained - driving on water - |I never experienced aquaplaning, all the water gets drained away - dry surface - their grip is just sensational. In addition,after I had these tyres fitted I notied a significant decrease of fuel consumption (my previous tyres were some old Michelin Pilots from 2000. They were ones of the best back then but I can't remember what model exactly it was). Overall, Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 are great tyres, snow drifts, deep puddles or mud won't be a problem for a driver who uses these tyres. I absolutely recommend, they're worth the money spent on them.

    I bought these tyres in September 2008, the DOT was the beginning of 2008. For the first two seasons they were doing great. They were fitted to a Golf IV 1.9 TDI 160 HP. The third season was a total disaster, it wasn't possible for them to drive on snow or ice. The distance I did on them was about 9000 miles, tread depth was 7 mm, but the rubber had become so hard, that I was afraid to press the brake pedal on snowy road, not to mention about braking on ice or cornering. I had no choice - I had to buy new tyres. I chose Dunlop SP Winter Response. As for now, I am even more satisfied with them than with the Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 at the beginning. To me, Michelin is only a legend - and a waste of money.

    The tyres grip well in all conditions. Feels like driving on rails, which makes the driving safe and confident even at higher speeds. Previously I have driven on two types of Polish tyres for many winter seasons, but the change to Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 improved driving comfort both on the pavement and in the snow. You have to be careful when braking in the snow with turned wheels, because sometimes they can fall into a lateral skid, but it is probably normal on every tyre. In winterI didn't have any problems on these tyres to pull a Mercedes Vito up the hill - there was no skidding. Overall, Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 are very good tyres, very quiet and safe.

    This is the second time I am writing about this tyre - it's sensational! When driving to Austrian Alps I like to step on it - it's a shame to admit it, but when on flat surface it's hard not to floor it to over 130 MPH. Also, I drive quite dynamically in a large city. The tyres are superb, they handle snow-covered roads in a very nice way (the last extremum: minus 25 degrees on New Year's Eve in Slovakia) - the only drawback- rather delicate inner sidewalls - I already had two torn tyres after I drove into a hole or on a curb - unless I had bad luck. Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 tyres are definitely the tyres worth recommending.

    Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 are poor tyres, they have lots of disadvantages when compared to my previous Pilot Alpin A2 I used the season before, I'm looking for an alternative now. The main drawbacks: notorious traction loss when accelerating (1st and 2nd gear) - also on dry surface, large lateral slipping on wet and slippery surface and snow - very soft tyre, small driving confidence, the tread on the front axle is already half worn out - I had to change them after 10000 miles. Pros: great driving comfort, acceptable on dry pavement (but what do you need winter tyres for then), good braking, decent fuel consumption.
