sufficient
Ranked #38 of 50
Securing a rank of 38 out of 50 competitors, the Michelin e.Primacy was evaluated with a final rating of 'Sufficient'. Despite showcasing an exceptional environmental footprint, marked by best-in-class sustainability, unparalleled longevity, minimal wear, and being the lightest and most fuel-efficient tyre in its category, it faced criticisms for its performance. Its balance was questioned, especially highlighting its shortcomings on dry and particularly wet roads, which led to a downgrade. On dry surfaces, the tyre provided satisfactory feedback to the driver and the handling at the limit was also deemed satisfactory. It managed to score well in terms of braking distance on dry roads. However, its overall dry performance did not surpass a satisfactory outcome. The tyre exhibited significant weaknesses on wet roads, with its performance in braking, aquaplaning resistance, and handling being rated as just sufficient. Its inability to effectively combine longitudinal and lateral forces resulted in a vague and challenging control in critical situations, culminating in a sufficient rating for its wet performance. Notwithstanding its limitations in handling and safety, the Michelin e.Primacy set a high standard in environmental performance by offering remarkable durability, the least tyre wear, and outstanding efficiency in terms of fuel consumption and tyre weight. This made it a benchmark for sustainability in the test, narrowly missing a good rating in this aspect.
