2023-01-22 - Can a Primacy 4 Plus be combined with a Primacy 4 on the same axle
A good question. Ideally you will always keep the same two tyres across an axle so I'm not sure anyone would recommend mixing, however the changes from the Primacy 4 to 4+ were small so of all the mixed axle combinations, this is one of the better ones.
2023-04-20 - I have just bought Primacy 4+ (245/45-18 100W XL) for my 2017 Mercedes E220d (model S213). The tire is very quiet in general, but there is often a strange "resounding" sound. Not extremely loud, but significant and annoying when I drive the car so much every day (approx. 3500 km / month). The sound is intermittent and it is not dependent on the road surface. Is this a "phenomenon" you have encountered?
I used to drive Primacy 3, which I have been very happy with, but they are noisier in general and extremely noisy when they are half worn.
Unfortunately I've not come across any noise issues with the Primacy 4+, or seen any references to this in other tests or online.
If it is intermittent and it is not dependent on the road surface I wonder if it's something from the car systems you weren't able to hear with the older, noisier tyres. If the sound seems like it's coming from one corner of the car you could try moving wheels around to see if it changes.
