Winter Traction for Luxury Touring Vehicles. H-rated MICHELIN® Primacy® Alpin® PA3™ tires help deliver a smooth touring ride with efficient wet braking and controlled maneuvers in wintery conditions.

  • Primacy™ Alpin® PA3™ tires offer a 10% gain in acceleration and handling characteristics in snow as a result of more sipe edges biting into snow and ice from 3-D StabiliGrip Technology™ with its bidirectional auto blocking and variable geometry sipes.
  • Increased traction at low temperatures for improved braking and handling in the wet and better overall performance in the snow, all the result of the revolutionary Helio CompoundTM, with sunflower oil. The PrimacyTM Alpin® PA3TM tire stop 5.6 feet shorter than its predecessor on wet
  • Building on the fuel efficiencies of its predecessor, the Primacy™ Alpin® PA3™ tire uses even less fuel thanks to a rolling resistance that has been reduced by 7%.

I switched from Sailun ICE BLAZER WST1 to the Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3 this winter, expecting the Michelins to outperform the Sailun's in the snow. The most noticeable improvement is that the Michelins are a lot quieter, but other than this aspect I was hugely disappointed by the Primacy Alpin PA3s, especially in snow. They would slide out even in slushy snow, something I never experienced with the Chinese-made Sailuns in thin snow. Don't get these tires if you get a lot of snow in your city! The other aspect of these tires that I didn't like was that they ride surprisingly harsh for an H-rated tire.
