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.

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.

IT WAS A BRILLIANT TYRE
The set of Michelin Primacy 3ST were the original fitment on our brand new Honda accord in 2013...Extremely quiet and refined , sure footed in the worst of the wet weather conditions , and fairly good in the dry (remember , it is not a sport tyre..). I am meticulous when it comes to checking the tyres air pressure ( keeping them on 36psi ) and was rotating them front to back every 20.000km.... They returned us the favour by lasting over 80.000km , mostly in city driving...They are still not down to the wear out marks, there is still about 10.0... Read more00km of life left in them , but they are almost 8 years old and it is time for the next set...We will probably go with Michelin again ( Primacy 4 or 4ST) , but mind you, the Continental Conty Sport Contact tyres that are fitted to our other cars are building a strong case as well...Tough choice. And yes , our lives are worth more then a cheap tyres...

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.

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.

satisfied and excellent service.
Great Tyres! Smooth and quiet drive. I was skeptical at first but I was impressed, very comfortable ride. Never had any issues, will be buying them again. Very satisfied and excellent service.
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.

very smooth ride
They were Tyres bought for my Camry Altise, Excellent handling in all weather conditions and smooth ride.Lasts long as tyres are rotated and wheels are balanced once in 10,000 Km.

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.

Michelin Premacy 3ST
I changed from the original Yokohama Geolander G91F [they are good tyre in themseves] as nominated for the Subaru Forester. However, I experienced 2 separate tyre failures over a period of 6 months due their 'collecting' a foreign body right on the corner between tread and side wall and unable to be legally repaired. While this could happen to any tyre, these Geolander G91F are somewhat difficult to obtain when travelling away from the major source of supply. Hence, after researching a variety of manufacturer/ tyre models, I selected the Miche... Read morelin Premacy 3ST as the preferred replacement. They have subsequently been a great source of confidence and appreciation while driving across a variety of road/ track and weather conditions for the past 12 months. I do however ensure that wheel alignments are carried out by recognized specialist/ professionals in their field. The only possible issue is some 'doubt' regarding their wear life which is yet to confirmed or not? I note now that these Premacy 3ST are presumably to be replaced by the Premacy 4?

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.

Safety assured. With Michelin Tyres
Ever since I changed to Michelin Tyres for my vehicles, the lasting qualities of these tyres has really amazed me! The last set lasted over. 85 thousand kilometres ! The grip in provided wet weather.conditions proved second to none!
I would recommend these tyres to anyone !
Thank You for the chance to share my experience
