The Primacy HP is Michelin's Grand Touring tyre developed to provide longer tread life and lasting performance throughout the tyre's life, as well as better braking, steering control and handling on wet roads. The Primacy HP tyres meet Michelin's Green X standard* for eco-focused manufacturing and low rolling resistance, and confirms the tyre's contribution to reducing vehicle fuel consumption, emission of CO2 gases and improving sustainability through conservation of natural resources.
Primacy HP tyres use a new generation Michelin tread compound molded into an asymmetric tread design that features large, linked shoulder blocks, notched intermediate ribs and a solid center rib to combine responsive handling and high-speed stability with traction and even treadwear.
The Primacy HP tyre's structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by size-optimized BAZ Technology (spiral-wrapped Polyamide Banded At Zero degrees to tire rotation) to enhance ride quality while providing high-speed durability.
- A European handling profile, featuring a rounder shoulder, is designed to provide progressive, predictable cornering, letting you push your vehicle to the edges of its performance capabilities.
- The Elasto Sport Compound on Primacy™ HP tires allows for stopping distances up to 5% shorter on wet road surfaces. This revolutionary compound also provides increased handling in wet conditions for better overall performance
- The MICHELIN® GREEN X® label guarantees a level of energy efficiency among the highest in the market and reduced CO2 emission while maintaining all the legendary Michelin advantages of long wear, safety, and other performances
