Top Michelin Primacy 3 Review

Given 99% (breakdown) while driving a Vauxhall (215/50 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 17,000 spirited miles
Fitted to the front at 81385 miles, laser alignment completed at the same time + new front shocks, springs, top mounts & bearings fitted. They have lasted to 98885 miles and still are just over the treadwear indicator. Amazing tyres. Incredible grip in the wet and dry; 100% confidence in them always. Slight slip now with full acceleration in the wet; but they are almost fully worn! Incredible comfort and quietness, and great durability on the front of a car which has 354NM of torque. I have always run top rated premium tyres from all the biggest brands. These are the best tyres I have ever had; second to none. Very highly recommended and great value too.

Given 84% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Avensis (215/55 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 20,000 spirited miles
Just bought tyres to replace Michelin that had completed
20,000 miles, the grip in wet is main reason to buy as they are class on wet roads , dry not bad either
Definitely recommend

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a Lexus GS450h (235/45 R18 W) on mostly town for 12,000 spirited miles
I drive quite a powerful and heavy rear wheel drive. I have found the tyres to have good feedback, grip in dry is good. Grip in wet is questionable - I do find my back tyres slipping sometimes (not dangerous however, as car is quite powerful and is rear wheel drive).For wear, I get around 15,000 - 18,000 miles out of the back tyres (rear wheel drive), and around 20,000 - 21,000 for the fronts. I am happy with this as I do drive quite fast at times. Would buy again, although I would probably try CrossClimates for rears next time.

Given 46% (breakdown) while driving a Opel Astra H GTC (215/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
My ~6 year old Falken tire were better then this product.
Wear signs of the 1 year old tire is terrible.

BMW bmw (245/45 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 2,500 easy going miles
This tyre was fitted to my new BMW 540i. Grip, handling etc were all ok but the noise over most road was the worst I have ever experienced. Every time you go over a small bump in the road it feels like being on solid tyres, the whole car vibrates. How BMW can say they improve safety and COMFORT I don't know! After 25 years of BMW's this will be my last....shame, the car build quality of the car is excellent.
