Top Michelin Primacy HP Reviews

Given 74% (breakdown) while driving a Honda 1.6 I-DTEC (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 25,000 average miles
OEM fitment; safe, long lasting but mostly oh so noisy and not in a good way. Their sensitivity to road surfacing is extreme Acoustic output particularly in the higher frequencies going from negligible on smooth new Tarmac to an appallingly loud roar on common old road-stone. Otherwise moderately comfortable but with a tendency to slap on less even surfaces. Good in the dry and well behaved in the wet. Slightly remote steering feel and unless it's below 7 degrees generally dependable and fairly trustworthy, even close to the edge of their capability. Have replaced these today and with the tread remaining they could have done well over 30K but the volume and character of the noise was ruining my enjoyment of the still new(ish)car. This tyre is good but not excellent. I believe there are now newer and better so buying them again is a moot point

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.

Given 78% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Passat 1.9Tdi (215/55 R16) on mostly motorways for 3,000 average miles
Extremely comfortable and stable at high speed on dry and moist roads, quiet and soaks up bumps well. On a rain soaked motorway, standing water with a mirror finish at 125kph, the other day I got a fright, for a brief moment the steering wheel had no say in what direction the wheels pointed. The engine didn't rev out so I don't think they were aquaplaning, but they were definitely in the transitioning phase. I think the rumble line on the motorway edge saved me as the water could disperse quicker when the left tyre reached it. I have a 200 kilometre round trip to work daily, and I'm facing into winter with these tyres, after spending 145 euro each on them, I'm stuck with them. Having said that the rubber compound grips wet road really well. Dreaming of uniroyal rainsport 3 now.

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Peugeot 3008 (250/50 R17 V) on a combination of roads for 25,000 average miles
These were the original tyres. 25000 miles. No issues with either wet or dry grip. Asked to replace with same but given Primacy 3 instead.

Toyota Prius (225/45 R17) on for 3,000 average miles
I got the tires fitted to my car when bought them, with 1414 DOT and still quite some profile left, let's say they are at the half of their life.

First I was quite surprised how they handle on dry road, and how they handle on wet - I was a bit worried, as these are turing tires and have really narrow profile lines, but they did well. not racing style great, but great. the only problem I have is lack of responsivnes when there is greater amount of water on the road, i.e. during heavy raining and in storms. The tire feels like it floats. I was driving also Fulda EcoControl and SportControl before, but never had this feeling.

Otherwise, they seem like they are really "wareproof" - they really don't lose much of the profile ...

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Cmax (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 40,000 average miles
I was very happy with the low wear with 45.000 km on a 7 seat car.
Not keeping them as they are the most expensive tires I found locally in my research.
