Tire Description

The Primacy 3 is a summer tire that provides incredible grip and traction on wet and dry surfaces. It is an OEM (Original Equipment) tire on luxury touring vehicles such as the BMW 5 & 7 Series, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and the Audi A6.

Summer Touring

This summer tire is built for touring which means it is best suited for every day road use. It is designed to produce a low amount of resistance when in contact with pavement which improves fuel efficiency, reduces road noise and treadwear. The tread compound is constructed with added stiffness and rigidity which further reduces wear in warm conditions. This tire is intended for dry and wet pavement; therefore, it offers a series of water evacuating features that work together to keep the rubber on the road, even while driving over puddles or cornering aggressively. The stiff compound may break down in the winter and will have trouble gaining traction on snow or ice, so make sure to use these only during the warm weather months.
