Im pretty satisfied over all. They have made their jobb without sticking out to the bad side or to the wow-side. I can say thow that road feedback wasn't on top.
I would definitely buy them again. But i have gone on with another brand this time.

Driving a Ford Focus MK3 (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 48 spirited miles
Primacy HP were standard on my 2013 Focus estate 1.6tdci and they were the best tyres all round I've owned. The plus sides, very hardwearing, 48k miles on uk roads, still legal but changed them as it was the beginning of winter. Never punctured, ran true through out their life. I drive quickly but I reckon I'm easy on cars. The one downside is they could be a bit noisy on certain UK road surfaces, it maybe a Focus issue, I dont know. Needless to say I opted to have the same tyre again.

It wasn't until I got home that I noticed that Micheldever Tyre Services had fitted Primacy 3's. When I queried this they said HP's were being discontinued and this was the replacement. Well, its not the same tyre, the Primacy 3's lasted about 20k and although they hadn't worn out they had feathered making the noise intolerable, and yes I do get my tracking and toeing done when I change tyres.

It's a year on, Primacy HP are still on the market, some publications also state that Primacy 3 are HP replacements, they are 1 DB quieter than HP's but nowhere near as durable. Plus you try and buy HP's for the same price, they're always more expensive, but IMO well worth it.

Given 94% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 320d touring (205/55 R16 V) on mostly country roads for 42,000 average miles
I have fitted these tyres to several cars, and have always been very impressed, usually resolving problems that other tyres had created. They have been quieter, more comfortable, significantly less tramlining even when nearly worn, I they offer all the grip I need and haven't slid at all, they brake well and most significantly they last- 39,000 miles on rear of a BMW, and 48,000 on the front. What more can I ask of a tyre.

Given 61% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Golf GTI mk4 (240bhp) (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 1,500 easy going miles
I buy a 17" aluminum wheels with already used tyres 2011.g. and they are too much noisy on speed over 50km/h. Also they are not so good in wet condition. My opinion for this used tyres is not worth too much but i am sure the new one tyres have a better physical performance.

Given 89% (breakdown) while driving a Vauxhall (215/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 16,000 spirited miles
Hard wearing tyres with excellent wet weather grip. I haven't tried lots of different brands but I have never had so much confidence with a tyre in the wet until trying these. For some reason these gave the impression the tyre was too small for the rim as they appeared stretched although they were the correct size.

Standard fit on Peugeot 3008. Fine tyres. Never thought I needed more grip in any condition, but my car is not a sports car and is not driven like one. Not buying again though, as far cheaper tyres are available, which will hopefully cope with my driving style and typical journeys.

Given 63% (breakdown) while driving a Ford S-Max (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 20,000 spirited miles
These tyres were OEM on a Ford S Max 2.0 TDCi 225/50 17Y. I am changing them a bit early for two reasons:

1.Now the tread is down to 3mm, on my mainly autoroute/motorway fast cruise driving, the tyres have developed a tendency to aquaplane in heavy rain conditions. The sipes can longer evacuate the volume of water and this problem has increased with wear.

2.The noise on concrete sections of the M20 and M25 is becoming too intrusive. Even on smooth tarmac the tyres emit a droning type noise.

Dry grip is excellent and generally wet road grip is very good with the tyres making the S Max feel secure in greasy conditions. The car has handled well and the tyres are able to cope with a large payload range which vehicles like the occasional 7 seater S Max can carry.

The S Max has been quite kind to the tyres for such a heavy car and they have worn perfectly.

Current price for these tyres on AlloPneus.com in France is E136 each, but my preferred choice for replacement was on special offer with an extra E10 off, taking the price down to E87 each including mobile fitting at home. Quite a saving for Nokian Z Line tyres which I am buying due to favourable reviews on this forum, plus my own excellent experience with Nokian WR A3 winter tyres last winter, which I was reluctant to take off as they are so good.
