Product description & features
The Michelin Primacy 4 is a newly launched high performance car tyre - safe when new, safe when worn*.
Michelin have developed the Primacy 4, successor to the extremely popular Primacy 3, for high levels of safety and longevity.
The tread pattern of the tyre has been constructed with an optimised sculpture to allow for quick and efficient water evacuation - reducing the risk of aquaplaning and delivering a strong braking performance in wet conditions.
Michelin have developed a new compound which allows the tyre to deliver reliable strong traction and reliable braking performance throughout the lifespan of the tyre.
An innovative tread wear indicator on the tyre helps motorists to identify when the tyre require changing.
* New and Worn (worn means 2mm tread depth), on 205/55 R16 91V MICHELIN PRIMACY 4, is above the R117 European regulation wet grip threshold.
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.
