The Michelin Pilot Primacy is a Grand Touring Summer tyre that was developed to meet the needs of sporty luxury coupe and saloon drivers who want comfort and tread life along with performance.


Used as original equipment, the Pilot Primacy also focuses on enhancing wet weather traction and hydroplaning resistance.Like all summer tyres, the Pilot Primacy is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.


On the outside, the Pilot Primacy molds a silica-based tread compound into an asymmetric tread design that features stable independent outer shoulder tread blocks (to blend dry road handling with wet cornering traction), a continuous center rib (which reduces noise while providing constant road contact to enhance straight line stability), and a high angle grooved inner tread design (to further enhance wet grip and resist hydroplaning). Internally, the Pilot Primacy features twin high tensile steel belts that are supported by Michelin’s Banded At Zero (BAZ) technology (spiral-wrapped reinforcement) to stabilize the tread area to enhance handling and high-speed capability.

Features:

  • A summer tyre designed specifically for drivers of luxury performance and touring vehicles, the European-manufactured Michelin Pilot Primacy features outstanding performance and exceptional grip on wet surfaces and through deep standing water.
  • Perfect handling on dry surfaces.
  • Comfortable and quiet with excellent tread life..
  • Long-lasting performance
  • Speed Index: HR, VR, WR, YR
  • Available series: 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65

Driven these tyres which were on a new vehicle very carefully, tread has nearly gone on all four wheels after 16000 miles would not recommend these!

A lot of road noise with these tyres, OK on smooth roads but not on the majority of roads. Tyres follow lines in road. Previous Yokohamas much better.

I have been very pleased with the tyres which were fitted to the car when I bought it new and the front tyres did 25000 before changing and the rear tyres are still original and are now on the way to 29000.

S Jenkins - 23rd September, 2011

I expected to get reduced grip with these tyres as the tread wear is very good and Michelin tyres I used 20-30 years ago gave good mileage at the expense of poor grip , particularly in the wet. I was really impressed with these.

These tyres gave 100% better traction when setting off from standstill than the terrible bridgestones the car was supplied with from new

S Robinson - 2nd October, 2010

since i bought my tyres on the front and had them fitted, i have had to re inflate them every three days as they keep on lossing air even after going back with them. i would have liked them been resealed if possible but they said i needed my allos re doing.

20000 miles driven since fitting and only down to 5mm tread depth, looks like these tyres will return over 40000 miles which is excellent value. Std fitment Bridgestone Potenzas only gave 20000 mile full life by comparison.
