Stay Away and save your self from an accident
With in one month 3 tires are bent and are wobbling . Had to argue with the distributor to cover these garbage tires under warranty. Now waiting for replacement and not being able to drive the car as these tires are not safe. Please stay away from Michelin. Will never buy Michelin again even though had Michelin on all my cars.

Michelin has done it again
Got Primacy SUV to replace my Michelin Altitude HP, Costco was having promotion Buy 4 get $100 off.
Over the last few months, fuel usage was down 5% without altering my route or driving habit. It feels the tire are firmer without impacting comfort inside the cabin. Hopefully the harder compound would give better mileage too.
Good road biased tyre
I love Michelins and got these on a second hand Prado we bought. Handles well on wet and dry. Good to keep tyre pressures on the high side as that provides better handling and consumption. Showing good wear as well. Would highly recommend them.
Purchased at Mycar (Kmart Tyre & Auto Service).
Dependable, safe quality tyres
This is the second set of these that we have fitted to our 2013 Mazda CX5 AWD diesel.
These lasted us 40,000km with tread to spare - we prefer to replace them before they wear right down, and sold the last pair on to another happy buyer without issue.
We purchased these on a buy 4 get $100 back deal with Costco.
The original Yokohama's that were fitted to the car only last 30,000 and were badly worn. The fact that these are soft enough to drive well, but can take highway speeds and gravel is appreciated.
Inbetween we had a set of Bridgestone Ecopias EP850's which had a longer tread life than the Yokohamas, but not as good as these.
Purchased in May 2019 at Costco VIC, Epping.
Great quality tyres, my car drives well with these. Superior grip on the road, especially during the wet weather. Drove brilliantly towing our caravan. I feel very safe with these.

Excellent replacement tyre for Mazda CX5
I replaced the original Yokohama Geolanders on my 2013 Mazda CX-5 with the Michelin Primacy SUV. 2 of the Yokohamas only lasted around 40,000km and the other two 45,000km. As I use the vehicle part time for ride-sharing it is important that the car is in good condition with good tread on the tires.
I've now done 50,000km with the Michelins and there is still plenty of tread there. I estimate there is another 10,000km in them but most likely more. I've had no issues with traction either in the wet or going around corners and bends. I have a lot...

Best tyres, yet expensive
Great mileage, very quiet, and very reliable tyres for BMW X3. They are expensive (probably most expensive on the market), yet I believe they are a value for money. You can get them discounted sometimes online or at other service providers.

Good tyres but not for roundabouts
I've had Michelin's on my previous car and loved it so i thought I'd try the Primacy SUV. I bought these tyres at the end of 2016 for me and my partners 2007 Honda CR-V Sports. They were $215 per tyre with a $100 cash back as part of Jax Tyres deal. We rotated it regularly at every 10,000km or 6 months and run it at 38PSI. We ended up getting around 65,000km in just 3 years. Our type of driving was mixed like highway, using roundabouts, commuting etc. NO OFF ROAD USE OR TOWING!
Some pros and cons
- little bit of a quieter ride
- no increase/decrease in fuel consumption
- braking distance and wet weather driving is good
- turning was better/smoother
- no punctures nor any funny wobbling or putting wheel alignments out :) ...
Purchased in December 2016 at JAX Tyres for $215.00.
Great product and got a great deal
purchased from Bob Jane, usually i purchase any old tyre however they had a special on MCH 195R14C 106/104R AGILIS which also included a wheel alignment. I can say that when i drive i feel steady and safe knowing that i purchased a great tyre.

Very Poor Fuel Consumption
Bought them from Bob Jane and drove for two weeks. Was getting 700KM per tank with Yokohama's but only manages 600KM now with these set of tyres. Bob Jane have pumped rear tyres to 39psi and front ones to 36psi but no difference. Don't buy these tyres, they will cost you weekly.

Squirmy and the wear rating is a farce
Follow up after 20 months:
These tyres have now done 28,000km on my Pajero and are within 1 to 2mm of the wear indicators. Effectively by the time they are no longer legal they will have given only about 60% of the distance of the Bridgeston Duellers they replaced (which had done 53,000km).
Yet they supposedly have a much better wear rating than the Bridgestones.
The squirmy feeling is still there, way too much feedback of even the smallest inconsistency in the road surface and they seem to magnify the small amount of slack in the steering box.

Perfect tyre for CX5 SUV
Changing 4 tyres on Mazda CX5 from original Yokohama done 50,000km to Primacy SUV. I was surprised with its quiet and feel soft on road. Road handling is good bothe dry and wet. It was special discount from Costco purchase 4 tyres get $100.00 discount, fitted and balance included. Happy with Costco service and price, a bargain @ $150.00 each. Highly recommended.

perfect tires for small SUV
first thought about the tires, they really are quiet.
i mainly short commute on highway with good road condition and it feels comfortable compare to my old tires.
i live in tropical country (Indonesia) so only dry and wet condition apply. so far no problem and better performance.
i also notice handling improvement to more confident driving experiences on corners.
about durability, i expect it to last 20.000kms
i recommended this tires

Michelin Primacy SUV - 6/2015 Kluger 3.5 V6 AWD
Kluger was purchased as a brand new company car but now has 180,000kms. I'm fortunate enough to pick tyres of my choice when needed, rather than by price alone. Car OEM were Michelin Latitude tyres which performed very well in all conditions but gave a very hard and uncomfortable ride even with adjusted air pressures. Next came Yokohama Geolander 055 SUV, excellent comfortable tyres and did everything the Michelin Latitude could do and more but just a tad more noise on the limit. The Yokohama's also looked narrower despite being identical size ...245/60/18. I was skeptical to go back to Michelin but the tyre dealer assured me they were a next level tyre. I can not speak more highly of these tyres, they are quiet, they handle extremely well on a 2000kg SUV, they dont wander all over the road and they stop very well indeed. The mileage so far (20,000k) has shown virtually no signs of wear despite the Kluger being loaded up on a regular basis. I have very high confidence in the Michelin Primacy SUV's in the wet, especially cornering, absolutely hang on without a hint of slipping. If you are considering replacing your SUV tyres soon then do not ignore the Michelin Primacy SUV for consideration. Not as cheap as some options out there but performance/mileage of these tyres will definitely make up for it.
Purchased in November 2018.
Good tyres. Handle as expected. Seriously worth consideration
Had 4x Michelin Primacy SUV in 215/70/r16 size fitted to our 2002 Toyota RAV4.
Tyres replaced were a mix of well worn (rear tyres) and OK tread, but lower quality tyres on the front.
On driving the car from the tyre shop, initial feeling was the tyres were 'softer' and seemed a lot quieter. At only local street, 50kmh speed, it was hard to tell, but I swung into a servo to check the tyre pressures and they were all up at 38 psi, so the "softness" wasn't the tyre pressure.
On the trip home, and over the next few days, I did a mix of 50..., 60, 80, 100 and 110 kmh driving so also a mix of road conditions, and these roads are what we drive on 99% of the time, so I know the bumps and noise of the road surface etc. Well, these new tyres, caused a problem. I could hear a LOT more rattles in the old car! Yep, these tyres are definitely quieter so the road noise wasn't drowning out the rattles in the old RAV4.
It’s a soft tyre which hold the road perfectly
Is a good tyres
It get worn out easy with high temperatures but you enjoying until last moment the quality
Some tyres not worn out but becomes hard and still can not use . I had a Michelin also on my bike and I have neve had a problem . It’s a bit more expensive but you pay for what you get it for
Primacy SUV on a Mazda CX5 - excellent
Isn't the tyre industry a nightmare???? So many brands, so many different models and tread patterns.... so I took my time to decide on the Michelin Primacy SUV. Purchased from Costco, there was a tyre size issue... the OEM size is 225 65 R17 and are Yokohama's. Unfortunately, they performed quite badly... becoming noisy as they wore out and at 45,000 klms, they had to be replaced even though the Mazda dealership did the tyre rotation every 10,000 klm. Very disappointing. There was an issue with the same replacement Primacy SUV size as they we...re speed rated H and not V. I wasn't planning on doing 240klm per hour, however I opted for the slightly different size of 235 60 R17. According to my research, this is an acceptable alternative with only a 1.4% difference and with the correct speed rating of "V". In short the tyres are exceptionally good.... very quiet in the dry, very good grip in the wet and only time will tell if they last the distance. They seem to have a less rolling resistance and ride is comfortable when filled with nitrogen. BTW, these were cheaper than the OEM size - go figure! I would highly recommend these tyres on any SUV. Hope this helps. There is a wonderful web site that gives you safe tyre size alternatives - www.wheel-size.com UPDATE: Have had these tyres on now for over 10,000 klm. Still very quiet ride and got me out of an accident in the wet... I don't drive on the conservative side so these tyres behaved beyond my expectation. Highly recommended. UPDATE 2: Now 25,000 klm and they are performing with excellence. Wear is even and still heaps of tread. Trick though is to keep them inflated a little on the high side (for me 40 psi), wheel alignment and must rotate every 10,000 klms. BTW I am using nitrogen but not sure if that makes much difference - offered by Costco for free.
Purchased at Costco.
All good so far on ride quality, noise and wear
Very happy so far. Far better than the OEM Kumhos which have a good treadwear but were far too hard, noisy and plain dangerous in the wet. Only time will tell re treadwear but with a rating of 440 I'd expect to get roughly 50k+ which is more than enough for me.
I put the Michelin Primacy SUVs on to replace the original dunlops that came with the car new. I got 90000 kms out of the Dunlops by driving carefully. I do a lot of highway driving, often loaded up and with a trailer. The rear michelins lasted 10000 kms before they were down past the wear marks. To the credit of the shop I got them at they replaced them with pirellis. The michelins drove really nicely around town and were exceptional in the wet. As promised they were very quiet. Not that I cared with a diesel! They are far too soft for a 4WD towing at highway speeds.
very good tires
got these tires for my tiguan because the previous tyres just worn out too quickly (I think they were yokohama). i really just wanted something that will last me and won't cost me an arm and lag. dont really know the technical aspects of it but does the job and works pretty well
Questions & Answers
Is this good for 2015 gx460 Lexus primary SUV?
Hi, would you use the Michelin Primacy SUV on a small pickup truck?
Hi, check your required load rating first, then cross-check against the Primacy numbers.
HI all, has anyone noticed a huge increase in fuel economy since having Michelin Primacy suv? Mine has gone up by heaps in a 2015 Kluger 9l/100 to 14l/100. last tyers were Michelin Latitude Tour and i could get fuel economy down to 7.5l/100 sometimes
Hi, no difference on my end. Loaded on trips out west I can easily get 8.5L/100 sticking to the speed limit and running around 38psi. I achieved this figure with Michelin Latitude, Yokohama Geolander 055 and the current Michelin Primacy 3 SUV. Around town 11.5L all day. On another note, see if there are any software updates from Toyota as I took mine in to have the reverse camera looked over due to a viewing delay on the screen. They told me it was a 'software' update and the camera worked better for about a week but the car was greatly improved, better responsiveness, better gear changes.
