Michelin Primacy 4


The EVERGRIP TECHNOLOGY provides outstanding wet grip, thanks to:

  • New tyre sculpture, providing +50% of space to evacuate even more water (when new and when worn) compared to previous generation tyre
  • New rubber compound,  bonding rubber and silica more strongly and evenly, providing more uniform energy dissipation upon contact with the road



  • Provides a silent, comfortable ride thanks to inter-locking bands between tread blocks that minimize air pumping sound effects as the tyre is rolling.

as good or better thaqn the OEM Primacy 3

Trevh - January 23, 2021

My Skoda Octavia Scout 135 TDI had Primacy 3 on from new and did 67,000 km. Replaced with Primacy 4 and now have 135,00 km on the clock. Mostly on Gippsland rural arterials and freeways and trips to Myrtleford. They have been rotated every 10,000 km. Nearly to the wear indicators but still going strong. Cannot fault the handling or braking performance. These tyres are quiet and comfortable on this car. Skoda did a great job of matching tyres to this car. I will fit another set opf Primacy 4 in a month or two.

Excellent value for money

doug - January 22, 2021

I've seen some interesting reviews on this site but I have to comment that I have just replaced my front two tyres on our VW Golf after 70,000 kms and 5% tread left - the rears are still going well. I cannot fault the tyre, excellent adhesion, wet weather performance also excellent and for the money I cannot fault these tyres. German cars typically are sound insulated for smooth bitumen roads so our OEM fitment when new was changed to michelins as soon as we could and we have been very happy with the road noise abatement as well.
