Delivering a tyre that covers all your needs.

Tyres have their own personality: they need to express certain caracteristics more passionately. With MICHELIN Total Performance, you gets all characteristics on top, without any compromise. All our tyres are made to cover all your need, thanks to MICHELIN Total Performance.

Design and Technology

  1. New Tread Pattern and Auto-locking Sipes
    Because a standard tyre is not completely in contact with the road. MICHELIN Primacy 3 is made of a new sculpture along with innovative auto-blocking sipe technology. It keeps the entire tread surface area of the tyre in contact with the road, providing excellent grip on wet and dry roads and shorter braking distance.
  2. New rubber compound
    Optimises grip under all weather conditions to provide shorter braking distances.

By LW from Johannesburg South Africa - VOLKSWAGEN Golf - On-Road

I currently drive a Golf 7 TDI fitted with 205/55R16 Primacy 3 Tyres. To date i have done approximately 10000km on the tyres. I have had a few issues regarding noise and vibration. I have had balancing redone and found the ride a bit better but am looking forward to see how the tyre stacks up as the tread wears down

An Excellent Tire

5 / 5

By Mlu from Johannesburg South Africa - FORD Focus - On-Road

I have had Primacy 3 tires (215/50 R17) on my Ford Focus for 90 000 km (mostly on road) and will have them fitted to it again as replacement for the worn out ones. As with the previous user, the noise produced by the tires is significant, but the handling and braking capabilities are excellent - I have pushed the tires extensively.
