Pilot Primacy is a Grand Touring Summer tyre that was developed to meet the needs of sporty luxury coupe and sedan drivers who want comfort and tread life along with performance. Used as original equipment, the Pilot Primacy also focuses on enhancing wet weather traction and hydroplaning resistance. Engineered in Europe, this V- and Z-speed-rated tyre offers increased security through advanced wet traction, improved comfort and outstanding handling. Pilot Primacy is used as premium original equipment summer tyres found on many distinguished luxury sedans. Like all summer tyres, the Pilot Primacy is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice. Key Features and Benefits: Exceptional grip on wet surfaces and through deep standing water. Good handling on dry surfaces along with comfort and silence. Used on high performance saloons and tourers. Excellent tread life and long-lasting performance. On the outside, the Pilot Primacy moulds a silica-based tread compound into an asymmetric tread design to blend dry road handling with wet cornering traction. A continuous centre rib which reduces noise while providing constant road contact to enhance straight line stability. A high angle grooved inner tread design to further enhance wet grip and resist hydroplaning. Internally, the Pilot Primacy features twin high tensile steel belts that are supported by Michelin’s Banded At Zero (BAZ) Technology (spiral-wrapped reinforcement) to stabilize the tread area to enhance handling and high-speed capability.
