Product description & features
The e.Primacy has been designed so that the amount of contact the tyre's tread has with the surface of the road is maximised. By designing the tyre to evenly distribute the pressures of braking, acceleration, and forces into the corners of the tyre, the lifespan of the tyre has been extended significantly.
A low rolling resistance has been achieved through specially constructed compound. Within the tyre's compound elastomer-filler coupling works to greatly reduce energy loss, which lowers rolling resistance - resulting in less fuel or electricity needed to move.
Michelin have designed the e.Primacy with a thinner top belt, that is capable of delivering the same resistance with less raw material. As a result, the e.Primacy generates less rolling resistance overall.
Thanks to an innovative component, the tyre's sidewalls can absorb less energy when flexing - reducing energy consumption and increasing range.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
