The Michelin Pilot Primacy is a Grand Touring Summer tire designed to meet the requirements of sporty luxury touring coupes and sedan. This tire is used as original equipment for BMW 7 Series. It has high angle grooved inner tread design to augment wet grip and resist hydroplaning. It features a silica based asymmetric tread design on the outside that has durable independent outer shoulder tread blocks that harmonized dry road handling with wet cornering traction, a continuous center rib which helps to decrease noise and at the same time providing constant road contact to boost straight line stability.
On the inside it has twin high tensile steel belts that are backed up by Michelin's Banded At Zero (BAZ) Technology™. This technology is spiral-wrapped reinforcement to sustain the tread area to enhance handling and high-speed efficiency.
Similar to other summer tires, it is not designed to be driven in snow, ice or close to freezing temperatures.
