Michelin Primacy HP
The Primacy HP is Michelin's Grand
Touring Summer tire developed to provide longer tread life and
lasting performance throughout the tire's life, as well as better
braking, steering control and handling on wet roads. While Primacy
HP tires are designed to offer reliable traction in dry and wet
conditions for drivers of luxury sport sedans, they are not intended
to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
Primacy HP tires benefit from Michelin design innovations known as
A.S.M. (Architecture, Sculpture and Materials) that reflect
Michelin's ability to focus simultaneously on three fundamental
factors that determine a tire's capabilities. Using their A.S.M.
design method, Michelin can develop tires that combine an
architecture that deforms more easily to optimize contact with the
road, a tread design sculpture that remains rigid so more of the
footprint contributes to performance, and unique tread compound
materials precisely blended by Michelin's mixing technology.
Primacy HP tires use a new generation Michelin tread compound molded
into an asymmetric tread design that features large, linked shoulder
blocks, notched intermediate ribs and a solid center rib to combine
responsive handling and high-speed stability with traction and even
treadwear. The Primacy HP tire's structure includes twin steel belts
reinforced by size-optimized BAZ Technology (spiral-wrapped
Polyamide Banded At Zero degrees to tire rotation) to enhance ride
quality while providing high-speed durability.
