Once the final specification Primacy 3 was developed, the tyre was handed over to independent testing body TUV to test against 4 leading competitors. In a thorough array of TUV tests,
the new Primacy 3 was benchmarked against the
Continental Premium Contact 2,
Bridgestone ER300 Ecopia,
Pirelli P7 and
Goodyear Effecient grip.
With over 70% of accidents happening on dry, straight roads, dry braking was Michelin's top priority, but is also one of the hardest areas to improve on.
TUV found that the new Michelin Primacy 3
Under dry braking stopped on average 2.2 metres shorter from 100kmh than the 4 leading competitors
Under wet braking stopped on average 1.5 metres shorter from 100kmh than the 4 leading competitors
Allowed for the highest wet cornering speeds
