Writing about the Michelin Primacy 3
Driving on a combination of roads
for 12000 average
Good tyers overall,wear is almost non existent but lacks a lot of dry grip, on wet they are just as good as dry, which made me give them a 9, but, the dry grip is not fantastic, i was expecting better (but not by much), luckily they came with my 2018 honda civic 1.5 turbo 182 hp and i did not buy them myself because i would have regretted the decision, if you are not driving very sporty(which i am, sometimes), they should be good enough for you, but if you do, you'll find them not very suitable in sudden direction changes where i feel it becomes a bit unresponsive due to the lack of grip, making the car understeer without even realizing sometimes, you just feel the car's front end going very subtle in an understeer, i had a mini cooper 1.5 diesel and i swear i could go harder on some of my local B roads and i had some petlas velox sport fitted on that, which apart from wet grip and wear, they were fenomenal, good handling for that power range, or maybe it was the chassis's kart like dimensions that helped it, but, sticking to the subject, i feel that these tyers are perfect for what they are advertised and Michelin did not lie, they are very good in wet grip, very good braking distance in wet, although i feel it is not so great on dry, comfort is nice, road feedback is okay unless you floor the pedal, handling could be better, but i really don't have that much experience with competitors, altough i felt my winter goodyear ultra grip performance gen 1 was at least similar in grip and handling, and that is... a winter tyre (more or less), buy again is around 7, i would buy them again if i were to have a van and kids inside it, as it provides enough sportiness for that kind of needs, but if you try to race someone with their fancy cheap nankangs, don't, they might beat you even though you go lower on pressure as i do. Also, as a side note, don't try to floor it too much on wet conditions, the wheel tends to hop in these tyres.
