The Michelin PRIMACY HP is designed for high-speed and high-horsepower vehicles, making it the ideal choice for all drivers who enjoy dynamic and comfortable driving regardless of the weather. The asymmetric tread disperses water rapidly, improving grip and ensuring that dynamic manoeuvres can be performed easily. State-of-the-art technologies ensure that the tyre follows an ideal line, regardless of the road and weather conditions, thanks to an increase in the number of bridges, sturdier tread blocks and better distribution of forces.
The flexible tread ensures maximum contact with the road surface, and the rigid design guarantees optimum performance at the point of contact. All of these factors ensure even wear and improved durability, as well as protecting against typical mechanical damage. This tread pattern allows improved grip and helps to reduce braking distances on wet roads. The unique silica-enhanced Elasto Stop compound used to manufacture the tyre provides an added boost to performance on wet roads. It also improves traction and handling, ensuring driving comfort regardless of speed. The tyre is the ideal solution for anyone who enjoys fast, sporty driving, since its unique technology and the designer's attention to detail mean that they can now drive safely.

Originally I bought a spare set of 17" wheels for my old Merc off ebay, they came with these tyres on with a few mm of tread left, so I though I'd rag them stupid before refurbing the wheels. I have a local favourite roundabout, which is actually oval, and I do like to slide around it if there's no-one about to tell me off. I was amazed at how much grief I could give these tyres and how long they lasted despite be driving like I stole it. When they break grip, they do very progressively, oversteer is easily controlled even by a rank amateur like me.
So I bought a new full set of 4. I have just replaced the rears after 25K miles, all sorts of driving, including a few thousand on the German autobahns. I regularly do 110mph there, 130mph if my wife is asleep, and did max out at 147mph last summer. These tyres have been rock solid all the time. I reckon the front tyres will do 30K before I change them.
In the wet they perform just like in the dry except everything happens earlier. They can pull severely if you hit a big puddle - the tread pattern is quite old fashioned.
I've hooned down gravel roads, hit massive suspension bending potholes, kerbed them, spun them up until they smoke, basically been very, very cruel to them and they have not let me down.
They are not the most grippy I've ever had, but for long life and their ability so soak up all sorts of evil punishment - overall I think they are the best I've ever had.
Unfortunately I had no influence on the tyre brand when I was buying my new car. Michelin Primacy HP must be treated softly, a bit agressive style of driving causes a lot of skids and it can limit your power because ESP turns on. The worst thing is that when you drive in the corner on the edge of grip, when you see that your car can afford much more (my Ford can afford realy much) the tyres starts to loose grip and the fun overs. To sum up: good braking on soft and wet road, relatively quiet and comfortable - but they take away a lot of driving fun and as it is usual for Michelin they are realy expensive. There are plenty of tyres that are cheaper and better f.e Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta.
I dont have any restrictions regarding Michelin Primacy Hps driving properties. they behave good on wet and dry conditions. But when it comes to the comfort (Michelin brags about Primacys comfort) its just a drama. These tyres are not silent at all. I put 4 new pieces (my car is 100% efficient. Information for those who will think that I have any bearing problems). They rumble since the beggining even if driving 20MPH. When the speed rises the noise rises with it.Its realy annoying unless you put the volume up in your radio. I use Dunlop Winter Sport 3D which are directional tyres and they are way much better than Michelins because they are unnoticeable in comparison to Michelin.
I bought Michelin Primacy HP because I had the same in my Mercedes C but in 195/65 size and I was satisfied. Now I have 215/55R16 and it's a crap. It rubbs of so quickly... especialy on the off-side. Drama on wet road. They lose grip very fast. On wet while driving 80mph my ESP turns on. It is dangerous because the computer takes some power. My adventure with Michelins finishes on Primacy HPs. Surely, there will be plenty of users that will have another experience. I drive realy calm so all those failures cannot be cause by my driving style. I have winter Toyos and Im 100% sure that they are better than Michelins. My next tires will be japanese for sure! Regards,
I drive about 25.000 miles per year. Braking on wet surface is the same as on dry. very good grip in corners. There are just 2 tyre brands that didn't diasappoint me - Michelin and Goodyear. Summer on Primacy HP and winter on goodyear UltraGrip Performance. I recommend both of these tyres. Now I made 60k miles in 2 years (25-30k in the winter and 30-35k in the summer). Goodyears will probably handle this winter, but Michelins are ready to be changed - about 6mm of tread left). The only issue is the attriction, but having on mind the braking properties, driving on wet, corners handling I have to say that I didn't have better tires.
