Michelin Primacy HP Reviews

Given 60% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 330D Touring (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Had these fitted to replace Rain Sports which were not easily available at the time in the size needed, assured that the rubber compound was similar. Initial impressions were okay, dry grip was fine, no noticeable deterioration in powering through corners but with less confidence in the rain. But once the tread was below 3mm, wow, these things just gave up. Cornering in the wet is a lesson in drifting, and I can spin the back wheels changing up in third. I would not put these on the back of a powerful RWD car again, in fact I will avoid them.

Very poor grip in wet conditions.
Actually dangerous tires on RWD cars in wet.
Good wear

Given 84% (breakdown) while driving a Saab Automobile 9 3 Turbo X 280bhp XWD (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 56,000 average miles
Having to change my rear set of tyres, grip left 3.5mm but rubber is crazing badly. They are original and have done 56000, changed my front set at about 40000. Good tyre in all aspects.

Given 93% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A3 (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 30,000 average miles
33000 miles on original Primacy tyres - 2 now need replacing although 3.5mm left. Satisfactory mileage, I think, so will have another two!

Given 49% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Golf Mk5 GT TDi 170bhp (205-55-16-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 20,000 average miles
I had 4 new tyres fitted to my wife's car which tied in with a fuel voucher offer.... If she was a high mileage driver they might have been good value for money as they did wear reasonably well. However, after 25,000 miles and only 4 years on the car the tyres failed the MOT due to the tyres perishing. Not impressed when they were £116 each!

Given 80% (breakdown) while driving a Chevrolet Orlando (215-60-16-V)
Driving on mostly town for 6,000 average miles
Good Grip in wet whilst pushing car on the straight and round roundabouts as expect with a premium tyre. Wear very well ... I recently choose the 'B' wet and 'C' rated fuel efficiency/ rolling residence over the newer 'A' Wet , 'B' fuel and I found the newer formula Tyres do not last as long?

Given 46% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 528i SE manual saloon (225-55-16-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
These came fitted to my car when I bought it. Considering how expensive they are I think they are pretty poor. They have poor wet grip and wear fast. I think I will replace with something cheaper when the time comes, as many cheaper tyres perform better,
