Design and Technology

MICHELIN Primacy 3 tyre


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.

Outstanding Runflat alternatives

audio_engr - April 27, 2020

After 5 years of using my 2015 C400 4Matic sedan that came with Continental runflats I finally got scope to put these Primacy 3 XP and ... Oh! what a revelation .. a completely new car feel with superb dry and wet grip, much less road-noise, less rolling resistance and excellent braking. My gas average has improved too. A "true Michelin" from every sense ... If you have a C300, C400, C450, C43 you owe it to yourself to move to these. Though these Primacy 3 are strictly summer tires, I live in NoVA and we don't get much snow here .. for light snow I am sure they're good.

Nice when they're new

Bibendum Jr. - August 16, 2017

Great tire, but rears last only about 15,000 miles on my car, which has different size tires on each axle. This means I can't rotate them front to back. Good wet grip and relatively quiet for a run-flat. They do seem to attract nails as I have had three flats in 25000 miles with them. They cannot be repaired if punctured and the run-flat concept is not ready for prime time. With a flat you can drive a total of about 50 miles at reduced speed, which will get you to where you're going if your puncture occurs within this distance from your destination. Very few places stock these tires so be prepared to wait 3-5 days to get a replacement tire.

Complaint

Bube - November 5, 2016

InMacedonia, stores your distributor Olimpico on August 15 2016 bought 4 tires Michelin Primate 3. For two months my tire broke. In Olimpico brazenly refused to replace my tire. And I was forced to buy a new tire on 12.10.2016. I would like to as you for expertise on that tire.
