Compare Michelin summer tyres made in your size:


In our quest to guide consumers through the vast selection of summer tyres, we have meticulously handpicked a few standout performers from Michelin's lineup, based on their impressive outcomes in recent tests. These selections shine a spotlight on tyres that not only deliver superior performance but also encapsulate advancements in tyre technology and safety features.


Starting with the **Michelin Primacy 4+**, it has quickly established itself as a remarkable successor to the Primacy 4 and even the Primacy 3. This tyre, celebrated for its balanced performance, has secured positive evaluations from renowned testing bodies, including ADAC and Autoklub ČR. In 2024, ADAC emphasized its secure handling on both dry and wet surfaces, very high projected mileage, and low fuel consumption, although it noted slight weaknesses in aquaplaning behavior. The tyre’s design prioritizes longevity and environmental efficiency, as evidenced by its commendable ratings across different tests, including a "Highly Recommended" rating from Tyre Reviews in 2023.


The **Michelin Pilot Sport 5**, making strides after the Pilot Sport 4 and 3, stands out in the Ultra High Performance (UHP) summer tyre category. It has been lauded by Tyre Reviews, ACE, and Autobild in 2023 for its precision steering, excellent driving dynamics on both wet and dry roads, and good aquaplaning reserves. Despite its high price point, its quality and performance justify the investment, making it a favorite among driving enthusiasts seeking top-tier handling and safety features.


Emerging as an eco-friendly option, the **Michelin e.Primacy** demonstrates Michelin's commitment to sustainability without compromising on performance. Automotorsport's 2023 review highlighted its exceptional wet braking and low rolling resistance, although it pointed out the tyre's somewhat firm ride. Despite mixed reviews, such as ADAC noting some unbalanced traits, its virtues in sustainability and longevity are undisputed, testament to Michelin's innovation in developing more environmentally conscious tyres.


For SUV drivers, the **Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV** tyre has not gone unnoticed, emerging victorious in tests conducted by Autobild and displaying exemplary handling on wet and dry surfaces. This tyre, too, benefits from Michelin's knack for combining comfort with high-level performance, ensuring that even the most robust vehicles can enjoy a smooth and responsive ride.


Our selection, rooted in meticulous analysis and testing results, demonstrates Michelin's continued dominance and innovation in the tyre manufacturing industry. Whether you prioritize eco-friendliness, performance, or all-weather versatility, Michelin's offerings cater to a broad spectrum of needs, ensuring that every drive is safe, enjoyable, and efficient.
