Top Michelin Primacy HP Review

Given 87% while driving a Ford Cmax (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 40,000 average miles
I was very happy with the low wear with 45.000 km on a 7 seat car.
Not keeping them as they are the most expensive tires I found locally in my research.

Given 59% while driving a Ford Focus MK3 (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 12,500 spirited miles
I have a sporty to very sporty driving style, but I can enjoy a long drive to relax. However, my current tire that was on the car upon delivery, the Michelin Primacy HP does not give me the right characteristics that I would want from a tire. On the long relaxing rides, very good. In the sporty to very sporty driving style, NOT. Even in the rain this tire does not give me the right grip, you get to the point where it loses its grip and turns into understeer without any sign. In terms of safety, he is just too short for me. I can't wait to replace them and finally fit the Michelin Pilot Sport 4!

Given 96% while driving a CitroŽn C4 Grand Picasso (205/55 R17) on mostly motorways for 43,500 average miles
These came fitted to my car from new. I drive mainly on country roads and motorway. Excellent in every way apart from snow where they are not great, but just as good/bad as other summer tyres. Replaced the fronts at 2mm after 33k miles and the rears are still on at 3mm after 43k miles. These lifespans justify the premium price of the tyres.

Trying to pick the very best winter tyre? Watch this!
Given 60% while driving a Toyota GT86 (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 0 spirited miles
These tyres last ages, but that's because they are low grip. They came standard on my GT86 entirely BECAUSE they are low grip and you can drift the car at low speed.

As a performance tyre they are rubbish, as a fun and go sideways tyre, great. A bit scary in the wet at high speed.

Given 51% while driving a Mercedes Benz E Class (245/45 R18 W) on mostly motorways for 24,000 average miles
My W213 Mercedes came with these as original equipment. As the tyres wore down, the ride and handling deteriorated noticeably. Car felt a bit unstable, moving slightly sideways, when driving through small potholes. Never had this strange feeling with other cars. Increasing air pressure didn't help. Tyres were rotated and lasted about 25,000 miles then I changed to Goodyear Eagle Assymetric 3, which I found quiet, smoother and generally much more pleasant to drive on.
