Not sure about the Michelin Primacy 3s (215 50 R18) as our car was fitted with them from factory and after 7200 miles all 4 tyres are showing about 4 - 5mm. We are only doing long journeys and on our last car (SEAT Toledo 1.6TDi) we got 24,000 and they were just over 3mm left on the front and had to be changed for a trip to France. The rears were showing 4mm when we sold the car at 33,000 miles. These were Dunlop but I can't recall which ones.

I've got the original fit Bridgestone Turanza 001 - 215/50/18. The wear rate is very good and they'll probably get to 25,000 miles with no problem. I'm currently on 13,500. When I need to get new ones next summer I'll see what other options are available in this restricted size. I want All Season having had Michelin Cross Climates before. Michelin confirmed to me that they have no plans to make them in this size so not much choice if I want to stick with the 18" wheels. The Michelin Primacy 3 summer tyre is generally well rated but it's getting a bit long in the tooth now. Having said that, it's still original fit on the Audi Q2, Mini Cooper, Peugeot 3008, etc.

Malcolm - I missed something in your earlier post. Are you saying that your Ateca came with Primacy 3 tyres? That's unusual because I can't recall anyone mentioning this make on an Ateca before.

In July this year managed to get a puncture in o/s rear which could not be repaired,the car was fitted with Bridgestones which I never really liked so

bit the bullet and had them all changed to Pirelli Scorpion Verde XL 225/45 R19 96W....What a difference in every respect.! Milage at the time 4901! :D

Hi Tobydog, yes my tyres are the Primacy 3s 215 50 r18 fitted to an SE Tech with a 1.4 engine. I drive economically and have achieved 43mpg over 7200 miles so I am not wearing the tyres through our driving style. Most of the driving is on motorways or A roads so wear rate is disappointing.

Malcolm - despite the high wear rate (which sounds unusual and unexpected for a Michelin) how do you find the ride on the Primacy 3's? The ride is generally firm regardless of what tyres are on the Ateca but I was wondering (hoping) the Primacy's maybe a bit more forgiving than the Bridgestone's on rougher roads. I realise that you probably haven't been able to do a direct comparison but interested in your thoughts.

Hi Tobydog, I like the feel of the tyres on the road and the car is certainly very quiet on most road surfaces. I've noticed a bit of hopping around on the back end with tight turns and bumpy road surfaces but the front is very precise. On previous Toledo I think we had Dunlop Sport Maxx which I changed for Avon ZV7s for better wet control and here there was a big difference in noise (quieter) and I was happy with them in the rain. If Primacy 3s only get 15000 miles I will be disappointed. I also saw Turanzas fitted on an Ateca and I like the large rib that seems as if it could protect the wheel rims from kerb edges. We are very happy with the comfort and we drive with the tyres at the top end of the recommended inflation pressures so all I can say is that I am happy with the ride.

Well it finally happened. Needed new front tyres as they were at the tread wear indicators. Mileage was 26000. Judging by the posts on here i think they did bloody good. That was on Falken Azenis tyres. They have been replaced by Kwikfit with Bridgestone Turanzas.

Interesting - did you replace all four or just the front?

Would be interesting to see if you notice any difference in the handling and road-holding between the Falkens and the Bridgestones.
