    Default Michelin Primacy 3

    Anybody bought these Michelin Primacy 3s? Thinking of buying these for my SRI and can get the 215/50/17 size. Sick of tyres that don't grip and are also noisy.

    I am crap at searching this forum, but check for advice on fitting a cheaper size of tyre. I think the suggestion is 225/45/17

    There are some sizes which are a more standard/popular size , which would give you the trye/thead you want.

    This is the latest Primacy tread pattern and I am likely to purchase these later this year
    I tested a set and didn't notice any difference over the other Assymetric tread patterns offered by Michelin and were up to their normal standard
    Sadly they will be noisey as they are a hard compound, but it depends on what is currently or has been fitted to your car
    Personally I prefer hard compounds; they last longer but at the expense of wet weather grip

    had Michelin Primacy (albeit not the 3) on my 2.2i direct. nothing special about them other than the very high purchase price. As m8internet said, a hard tyre so expect high mileage from them.

    Michelin Primacy or the Michelin Primacy HP?
    I tested the Primacy a long time ago and was not impressed, the GoodYear worked out better value for money at the time
    The Primacy HP compares to the GoodYear Assymetric, very similar tread pattern

    might have been HP m8internet, still find the tyre costs awful. I looked at tyres for my XP2 and the Bridgestone Potenza which I took off, droning badly, are £239 each!!!!

    The Michelin Primacy is slightly cheaper than the Michelin Primacy HP (making quite obvious what the HP stands for)

    Presumably not in 17" wheel size then
    Equally, how does the Bridgestone price compare against the Michelin
    Sadly it is not really possible to compare other tyres when the wheel size changes
    I compared a Michelin MXM on 16" and 18", and then a Dunlop SP many years ago, they were completely different

    no ... on 18s now. Love the Khumo but at £120 for 12-15k miles, too expensive. Looking for alternatives now

    I always find the Michelin to be the most expensive. Just fitted Bridgestone to my GSi on the front and they are great.
