Given 76% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Focus MK3 (215/50 R17) on a combination of roads for 40,000 spirited miles
Everything you would expect from Michelin. Superb Grip wet or dry. Lasted over 40,000 aggressively driven miles. Started to feel pretty horrible once worn down but still gripped well. Replaced with Toyo CF2's which are half the price and to me feel better and grip nearly as well in the wet.

Given 83% (breakdown) while driving a Ford c max (215/55 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 25,000 average miles
I drive a Ford Grand C-Max 1.6 Eco boost with these fitted on front and back. Have had car from almost new (780 miles) and covered 25000 mls so far - The tyres are still going strong! Even the fronts should last me a few more months until they get down to 3mm. The rears have got loads more tread left on them.
The grip feels good in both dry and wet and they don't seem excessively noisy. Have always gone for mid-range rubber before, but even though these tyres are on the expensive side I reckon they are worth it, so will be buying some more.

Given 76% (breakdown) while driving a CitroŽn 1.0 petrol (205/55 R17) on mostly town for 25,000 average miles
Comes as the default tyres set from the authorized car dealer. Been testing out various driving styles on straight roads, corners, slopes, off track, in both dry and wet. Good performance, reasonable comfort, but slightly low mileage on wear particular on sides. Maybe it is due to the regular cornerings in Multi-Storey Car Parks.

Given 71% (breakdown) while driving a CitroŽn C4 Grand Picasso (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 21,000 easy going miles
This has to be the worse wear rate to the tires I've driven.. worn pretty bad after 35,000km.

Given 97% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A4 SE 2.0 TDI 136 (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 25,000 spirited miles
A fantastic well balanced all round tyre, they covered 25000 miles on the front of my Audi A4 without letting me down. The only issue is the cost at £110 a corner they were sadly over my budget when I came to renew.

Given 64% (breakdown) while driving a CitroŽn C4 (225/45 R17) on for 0 miles
Not a bad tyre but only lasted 20k on a Citroen C4 with normal driving. Quite a noisy tyre, and only okay in the wet, get a bit of wheel spin pulling away on a bank in the wet.

CitroŽn berlingo (215/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 0 easy going miles
Tyres are okay, terrible in poor winter conditions, I've learnt to fit winter tyres for a Yorkshire winter.

Far longer wear than Primacy 3 which just wear out to quickly as I do 40,000 a year. A Primacy 3 on the rear only lasted about 15,000 miles as opposed to about 30,000 for Primacy HP.

Finding it more and more difficult to locate HP tyres but my local Citroen dealer still manages to do do.

If I can't get HP longer term I will try some other tyres, I can't be replacing tyres every 15,000 miles on my relatively low performance Citroen Berlingo. I will state I'm no boy racer sat in a car having done 120,000 in three years, only replaced front brake pads at 78,000 miles. All discs and rear pads original so very gentle use. A boy racer would be through Primacy 3 in no time.
