Latest Tyre Test Results

2022 ViBilagare Eco vs Normal Tyre Test - 9th of 10 tyres

  • Positive - Low rolling resistance, good stability, crisp steering feel.
  • Negative - Very poor wet grip! Long stopping distances in wet.
  • Overall - The Michelin ePrimacy eco-tyre is said to have a CO2-neutral manufacturing process. Although the rolling resistance was the lowest in the laboratory, it was not the most frugal when we measured actual fuel consumption. Compared to Primacy 4, e.Primacy has a slightly better steering response and sharper high-speed stability. It is noticeable that it is designed to handle heavier EV-cars, partly helped by the unusually low tread depth – only 6.1 mm.
    On dry roads, the grip level is slightly less than the Michelin Primacy 4. On wet roads however, the differences are enormous with poor cornering grip, early aquaplaning and worryingly long braking distances. It is really difficult to drive on wet asphalt.
    The environmental thinking went too far. In terms of points, it falls far behind.

    I just bought these and was amazed to find they only have 6.mm of tread depth as purchased. D.O.M wk14 2021 C.O.M. Spain I will be monitoring them closely and will be providing and updated review in the fullness of time. I am currently struggling to find a listing of tyre tread depths as purchased so I can make a more informed purchasing decision next time. I've never known a new tyre to have so little tread (depth) at the outset.

    I replaced my Dunlop Sport Bluresponse, and since the first moment it is more than noticeable that the car starts moving much easier. They are very smooth on the road and when I push them will turning they just follow with confidence. They are also very quiet. I was going for the Primacy 4, but I do not regret at all.

    So much quieter on the car compared to the previous set. Only did the fronts but the difference was dramatic. Will definitely use these these tyres when the rears are due for replacement. A real winner for me.
