THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF SAFETY & LONGEVITY

- #1 in wet braking 4

Long lasting

Lasts 12 350 km longer than its competitors in average  5

What is behind it?

NEW COMPOUND

The new patented tread rubber MICHELIN PRIMACY 3 optimises adherence under all conditions.

NEW PATTERN

Because a standard tyre is not completely in contact with the ground, MICHELIN Primacy 3 has a new patented sculpture with new auto-blocking sipes that keep the entire surface of the tyre in contact with the road.

By Lee69

These tyres turned my car from a "wallowing boat" into a precision driving instrument. True, the ride is not as comfortable as it was before, but prefer better handling to ride comfort any day. Highly recommend.

noisy and bumpy

I usually have Bridgstone ,but was recommended these tyres as thee best at this time ,for wear ,breaking etc I am dissapointed by the noise level ,my car had always been silent no external noise ,people travelling in the catr have commented about he noise level ,we have even checked to see if the sun roof or window were open,I have aso pulled up on a couple of occasions as I thought I had a low tyre as they feel lumpy at times .

Disapointingly harsh ride

By Fussy about comfort

Handling fine and not too noisy but you feel every bump in the road. Running them (225/50/17 98V XL) 3psi lower than specified pressures to improve comfort. They ride like uncomfortable run-flats. Very disappointed and wish I had bought Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance which ride much better.

Tread pattern

Depending on the fitment the tread pattern can be Asymmetrical or Directional.

Why do you use both Asymmetrical and Directional tread patterns?

Indeed the new MICHELIN PILOT ALPIN has two different tread patterns. The reason is that we worked simultaneously in two parallel ways: one is made in collaboration with Porsche, the second one in a more common way. The two solutions have succeeded to achieve the desired result. Both of tread patterns respond perfectly to the “ridge-n-flex” philosophy and use the same elements but in a slightly different way.

Traditionally the asymmetric pattern is seen as the pattern for better handling. So what about handling with the PA4 Directional pattern version?

Indeed the asymmetric tread pattern is a solution for better handling, but not the only one. As you know the tyre is a system of many elements. By combining them in different ways, you can get great handling with both asymmetric or directional. The good example is our new PILOT ALPIN directional tyre approved by Porsche for the new 911 and Boxster.

Does it mean that Directional MICHELIN Pilot Alpin is only for Porsche?

No, not only.

Indeed it seems like this, as we have started with Porsche sizes. We are free to design more directional sizes for any other vehicles to meet their requirements. Even today these sizes exist in two versions V/W (Porsche marked and without special marking).
