Michelin Primacy 3 ST has been replaced by Michelin Primacy 4.
Suitable for all weather conditions
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.
Mixed road conditions.
Purchased in April 2018 at Bob Jane T-Marts for $210.00.
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...00km 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.
Purchased in June 2018 at JAX Tyres for $530.00.
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.
Purchased in December 2018 for $180.00.
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.
Purchased in April 2018 at Costco for $148.98.

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.
Purchased in July 2017 at Costco for $698.00.
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...lin 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
Very good quality
very very good quality and lasted longer than the other brands. Also did not experience quite a lot of punctures. I used nitrogen and it worked fine. I purchased it almost two years ago and it lived for about 30k kms and was doing a very good job indeed. Would highly recommend, but a bit expensive.
Great tyres handsdown
As soon as I put these on my car I was impressed....smooth... dead quiet. And I was told they will get heaps of wear.time will tell.If your looking for a great set of tyres you would be mad to not put these on your vehicle.Handling is also excellent.The old tyres were terrible compared to the MICHELIN"S
higher cost performance ,Michelin Primacy 3 ST
I have been using this Michelin tire for three years.This time gives me a high sense of security.On dry ground there is a super-high grip performance. In the same price comparison, it can still get a higher score.In wetland performance, it is in line with its price positioning.At the same time it retains the quiet qualities of Michelin tyres in terms of noise.Relative balance of durability.All in all is a very excellent, cost-effective products.
First Week Review
Got a new set of Michelin Primary 3 ST for my 2010 Mazda 3 SP 2.5 HATCH a week ago at JAXS in Geelong to replace a set of Continentals (72000ks ) which were worn out Great service and they changed them over in an hour and a good price!!!! You pay for what you get!!!!
First impressions of the tyres are excellent !!!!! 2010 Mazda are known to very noisy due to lack of sound insulation and bought them on the basis of their ability to reduce the road noise I did lots of reviews and lots of comparisons before selecting them
These tyres ar...
My opinion no kick backs.
I went to O'Neills at Cessnock and asked him to fit the best tyres to suit my S430 Merc. He said he wouldn't go past the Mich Prim 3 st. He knows I use the car for Hunter to Sydney all weather and said "you will fall in love with them". Cant wait for them to wear out to get another set. Could be a very long wait.
I "DRIVE my car, it's not a toy and the tyres have made it so safe it's no funny".
Will not go wrong with a Michelin
Very Quiet, great grip wet or dry, feels secure on the road cornering hard. Only had for three months so I can't comment on the wear and tear, but I expect great results. I did shop around and was counting on others reviews first, this brand came in as very highly recommended, worth the money, in the long run, I'm sure.
Great Tyres in all weather
Bought these tyres after reading about all the great reviews online, I was quite skeptical about its performance and traction at first but once I drove it while it was raining, you can feel so much difference and much more confidence in taking corners safely. My previous tyres were continental contisport contacts and Michelin are the winners here for me.
Questions & Answers
Could I use this tyre for holden captiva 5, and how many years it's endure to drive and what is the cost of this tyre? How do I order if I interest in this quality?
Are the Primacy tyres as durable as the Energy XM2?
I seem to remember seeing XM2 and Primacy 4 having similar wear ratings stamped to the sidewall, I'd imagine you will get excellent Mileage on the Primacy's based on their reputation
