In this comparison, we will be analyzing the performance of two popular touring summer tyres: the Michelin Primacy 4 and the Bridgestone Turanza T005. These tyres have been tested by various sources and have shown different strengths and weaknesses. Let's dive in to see which one is the better choice for your needs.


Michelin Primacy 4: This tyre has an overall rating of 90% and is made in ES, DE, and PL. The Primacy 4 is the successor to the Primacy 3 and has been tested by many sources such as Autobild, ADAC, and Teknikens. In the tests, the Primacy 4 consistently performed well in the following categories:


  • Dry braking

  • Fuel efficiency

  • Comfort

  • Wet handling


However, this tyre also showed some weaknesses. According to ADAC, the Primacy 4 had "slight weaknesses on wet surfaces" which led to a downgrade in wet handling.


Bridgestone Turanza T005: The Turanza T005 has an overall rating of 89% and is made in HU, PL, FR, and IT. Unlike the Primacy 4, the T005 does not have a direct predecessor. In the tests, the Turanza T005 demonstrated strong performance in these areas:


  • Dry braking

  • Wet braking

  • Wet circle cornering

  • Wet handling

  • Rolling resistance


In contrast, the Turanza T005 showed some weaknesses in its performance, including a "limited tread life" according to Autobild and a "slightly higher noise level" per ADAC.


Verdict:
In head-to-head comparisons, both tyres showed strong performances in various tests. However, each tyre also had its own weaknesses. The Michelin Primacy 4 showed slight weaknesses on wet surfaces, while the Bridgestone Turanza T005 had limited tread life and slightly higher noise levels. Overall, both tyres are strong choices for a touring summer tyre, but the choice ultimately depends on your personal preferences and priorities. Based on the test data, the Michelin Primacy 4 may be the better option for those who prioritize dry braking, fuel efficiency, and comfort. On the other hand, the Bridgestone Turanza T005 may be best for those who value wet handling and rolling resistance.
