Michelin - summer tyres 2024 - market overview, tests, reviews

Compare Michelin summer tyres made in your size:


In our effort to provide comprehensive and insightful reviews on summer tyres, we have carefully selected a handful from Michelin's wide range of offerings based on the most recent test results. This selection not only showcases the brand's innovative approach to tyre technology but also reflects the evolving needs of modern drivers.


One of the standout performers in our compilation is the **Michelin Primacy 4+**. This tyre is the latest iteration in the Primacy series, succeeding the Michelin Primacy 4 and the Michelin Primacy 3. In the 2023 tests conducted by Autoklub ČR, Tyre Reviews, and ADAC, the Primacy 4+ has been acknowledged for its commendable performance, earning a "highly recommended" rating from Tyre Reviews and regarded as "good" by ADAC, highlighting its balance, excellent performance on both wet and dry surfaces, and environmental efficiency. Its superior mileage also received the highest praise from ADAC, marking a significant advancement over its predecessors.


The **Michelin Pilot Sport 5** firmly establishes itself as a leader in the ultra-high-performance (UUHP) segment. Following the legacy of the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 and Pilot Sport 3, this tyre has garnered several "highly recommended" and "excellent" ratings in 2023 from respected bodies such as Tyre Reviews, ACE, Autobild, and Autozeitung. Critics have lauded its precise steering response, exceptional driving dynamics on both wet and dry roads, and impressive aquaplaning safety measures. Despite being on the pricier side, the investment in the Pilot Sport 5 is justified by its performance and comfort features, making it a top choice for drivers seeking thrill and safety.


Michelin hasn't overlooked the eco-conscious segment, presenting the **Michelin e.Primacy**. This tyre is a revelation in sustainable driving, emphasizing very low rolling resistance and noise levels while ensuring outstanding wet braking performance. Although ADAC's 2023 tests reflected some drawbacks on dry and especially wet roads, the e.Primacy was praised for its exceptional sustainability credentials, including remarkable durability and minimal wear.


For SUV enthusiasts, the **Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV** shines as a comprehensive choice, excelling in test conditions to provide exceptional wet and dry handling, aquaplaning safety, and a comforting ride, as evidenced in Autobild's and Automotorsport's tests. Its achievements are further accented by its gelände suitability, making it an ideal fit for both off-road adventures and city driving.


Each of these Michelin summer tyres offers a blend of Michelin's signature safety, efficiency, and performance attributes, catering to diverse driving needs and preferences. Whether it's the touring comfort and longevity of the Primacy 4+, the dynamic excellence of the Pilot Sport 5, the eco-friendliness of the e.Primacy, or the versatile robustness of the Pilot Sport 4 SUV, Michelin continues to lead and innovate across categories.
