Had good experience All Round Tyres

Noise had reduced once I installed these tyres
Not cheap but I guess you would say these tyres are very smooth and overall good value.

Best tyres I've ever had

These are great all round tyres. I have a Mazda 6 and these tyres have covered just over 80,000km and are still well and truly legal. I am a reasonably conservative driver but I always drive to the speed limit and do 40% urban and 60% rural driving. These tyres were so much quieter than the original factory tyres which were stuffed at 58,000 kms. As the Michelins approach the end of their life they are becoming noisier but they still hold the road like new in all conditions. They have worn evenly across the four tyres and have probably contributed to the fuel economy on long trips with the car consistently averaging 6.4 - 6.5L/100 km. Show details

No complaints

These tyres are coming to the end of their life after just over 50 000km.
They have provided faultless grip both wet and dry all the way to the end.
They are quiet, provide good handling and comfort.
No complaints. Will be replacing them with Primacy 4.

Ideal to reduce road noise in a Mazda 3

Mazda 3s are notorious for excessive road noise. The fitment of Michelin Primacy 3STs to our 2006 Mazda 3 reduced the road noise considerably on all road surfaces including coarse chip bitumen.

As the tyres have worn (now about 40,000kms) the tyre noise has increased but is less tyre noise than the previous tyres fitted.

Grip on all road surfaces and conditions is excellent. As the tyres have worn the grip levels remain unchanged.

After being fitted for 40,000 kms the tyres are now about to 2/3s worn. So can expect about 70,000 - 80,000 kms of life from these tyres.

These are excellent tyres and ideal for reducing road noise in a Mazda 3. Show details

Not as expected

travel long trips on dodgy country road. Purchased these tyres based on reviews and life expectancy - less than 30000 kms on my Ford Territory. Not impressed. Probably would have been better off buying cheaper tyres would have got the same kms out of them. Do not buy if you live in rural areas. Show details

Great Tyre, Smooth Ride, But Weird Crack Like Wear Sign Around the Side Wall Corner

When writing this review, my car has been using all 4 tyres of Michelin Primacy 3 for over 1 year and 1 month. So far, I enjoy the smooth and quite enough ride from the tyres. They also show a good sign of durability, with the exception of the weird crack/dent looking wear sign all around the corner of their side walls. Show details

Great tyres

These are the tyres that came on my car when I bought it brand new in 2014. I’ve since had to get all 4 replaced at 60000km. For the price what you pay for then I think that’s it’s great mileage out of them considering other brands that are cheaper and do less km’s

Michelin Primacy 3 ST

I feel that these tyres are a hard compound, with a soft sidewall. There is low speed bumpiness and noise, yet on the highway, there was a softness and floatiness. By comparison, the Pirelli Cinturato P7's seemed to have both a soft compound and a soft flexible side wall. Long term, I suspect that the harder compound Primacy 3 ST may have slightly better fuel consumption, and longer treadlife. It is all a compromise. However, for a luxury car, and considering that the Primacy is a premium touring tyre, I would have thought Michelin should have used both soft compound, and flexible sidewalls combined like the competing Pirelli Cinturato P7's.

good grip and mileage/kilometer age (if that's a word )

but a bit expensive.

!st set came fitted to my new car and lasted 65,000 ks. My car is small and light driven mainly in the country so this is not bad going. Little bit of dirt or unmade road at times and no puncher problems. Quiet and well performing in the wet and dry.

As everyone says you get what you pay for in rubber and road.

Now the bad news, redundant model, replaced by 4, so even if you want them you can't, and your not getting mine

Excellent grip, quiet, no issues

A few years ago, I changed the annoying run flat tyres on my bmw125i to primacy sport 3 tyres (the 3 are the higher spec tyre). They were the best tyre I have ever owned, they have excellent traction in both dry and wet conditions, they were quiet and unlike some tyres I have owned in the past, there was nothing strange about them (they had normal wear levels, did not compromise the handling of the car, etc). I highly recommend the Primacy 3s.

What can I say. They're quiet, comfortable, grip well wet and dry and held that grip until the end of their life.
As long as you don't buy cheap tyres you'll do alright.
