Notable Features

Michelin Primacy 4 is a passenger car asymmetric summer tire, which, due to its tread design, ensures excellent wet grip even in a worn-out state. Primacy 4 is a 2018 model, the first information about which appeared in the very beginning of the fall of 2017. This tire is characterized by excellent hydroplaning resistance, efficient wet braking, good ride comfort, and long tread life. Michelin Primacy 4 The Michelin Primacy 4 will become a worthy replacement for its predecessor, Primacy 3, which has been manufactured since 2011. The time and effort that the engineers invested in the development of the new-generation tire were not in vain, even though the tread pattern of the new model looks totally the same. Nevertheless, Primacy 4 does deliver a better ride comfort and a better grip both in wet and dry conditions. Michelin Primacy 4 / Primacy 3 To achieve a high level of traction, the Michelin Primacy 4 uses grooves of two types – with a square profile slightly tapering towards the base. This ensures quick evaluation of water from the contact area even when the tire is considerably worn out. This way, the fourth-generation Primacy tires ensure excellent wet performance both when new and when used (by “used”, a remaining tread depth of 2mm is implied). Drainage Groove Profile Some extra wet traction, without sacrificing any of the tire’s tread life, is ensured by special elastomers in the tread compound of this model.

The unique properties of the Michelin Primacy 4, a new model 2018, were confirmed by the tests conducted by the TÜV SÜD technical supervision organization at Michelin’s request. In June-July 2017, the Michelin Primacy 4 tires in size 205/55 R16 91V, installed on a VW Golf 7, were subjected to a series of tests for wet braking in a speed range of 80-20 km/h.

The test showed that their direct competitors – Bridgestone Turanza T001 Evo, Continental PremiumContact 5, Dunlop BluResponse, Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance, and Pirelli Cinturato P7 Blue – demonstrated a braking distance on average 0.9 meters longer. In the worn-out state, the braking distance of the Primacy 4 was on average 2.8 meters shorter than that of the competitors. Test Results, TUV SUD 2017 Yet another doubtless advantage of this summer tire over its direct analogues is its long expected mileage. The Primacy 4 treadwear warranty is an average 18,000 km longer than that of the competitors. This means that the potential consumers will be able to drive on these tires safely until the minimum legal tread depth (1.6mm) for a significantly longer period of time. This was confirmed by treadwear tests of the Michelin Primacy 4, which were conducted, parallel to TÜV SÜV, by DEKRA testing center. Innovative Treadwear The designers of this 2018 model also made effort to make the tread wear indicator even simpler to read. Specifically, the tread wear indicators in the shoulder area, traditional for the products of the French tire maker, were added with a Michelin sign at the bottom of the circumferential grooves, which is meant to make determining the degree of treadwear even simpler.

I have them about a year, since April 2020 and I would say they are durable enough. However I could recommend them for their performance on both dry and wet surfaces. They have one more advantage - very quiet ride!

I have them about a year, since April 2020 and I would say they are durable enough. However I could recommend them for their performance on both dry and wet surfaces. They have one more advantage - very quiet ride!

If you appreciate safe and comfortable driving, this tire is ideal for you. Performance on dry and wet surfaces is great and at the same time these tires are quiet, they don't make annoying noise. I definitely recommend!

I'm impressed with these tyres very much. Very good wear, good in dry,comfortable, but seems to slide in the cold and wet more than my previous tyres.
