New Michelin Tyre Range Now Going Even Further!

Michelin says its soon-to-be-launched Primacy 4 tyre range could dramatically cut costs for fleet owners after independent testing showed the new rubber lasted an average 11,000 miles longer than those manufactured by direct competitors.

Furthermore – during wet braking tests by DEKRA with a VW Golf Mk7 running on popular 205/55 R16* size tyres – the Primacy 4 was found to brake, on average, 0.9m shorter than the average of competitor tyres. And when worn, it was shown to brake 2.8m shorter than the average of other manufacturers’ tyres.

Commenting, Jonathan Layton, Head of Fleet at Michelin, said: “The long-lasting performance of the Primacy 4 could potentially save a high mileage fleet vehicle a set of tyres over the life of a contract.” Michelin Primacy 4 will be launched in 64 sizes from January 2018, to fit wheels ranging from 15 to 18 inches.
