  1. A Question About Performance Tyres? Ask The Michelin Expert!

    Hi Jamie, I have had the Pilot Sport 3,s (for some reason they fitted the AO version) on for over a week now. Cannot explain why but overall handling of the car feels more precise. Possibly also helped by the discs being refurbished during the MOT. Radio volume is also down a couple of notches on one particular road ! Best regards Neville
  2. A Question About Performance Tyres? Ask The Michelin Expert!

    Hi Jamie, Checked today and under 2nd so I will need to do something this week. I will go with the Pilot Sport 3. Since there seems to be little difference in the 97 or 93 I will go with best price. Many thanks Neville
  3. A Question About Performance Tyres? Ask The Michelin Expert!

    Hi Jamie, I had them checked at my MOT two weeks ago and was told that the two rears were very close to the limit. As far as the fuel economy I was going with the 93 showing as an F with the 97 as an E but I am not really sure how much of a difference this makes in real terms. Best regards Neville
  4. A Question About Performance Tyres? Ask The Michelin Expert!

    Hi Jamie, Supplier has been onto Michelin about the Primacy 3 who have confirmed that there is no price as yet and that the 245/40/93Y will not be available in the UK for 8 to 10 weeks. I will not be able to wait that long, so is I am assuming that the Pilot Sport 3 is my best option in a 93 or 97Y. The 97Y seems to give a better mileage rating and is cheaper but is there any down side ? Any thoughts much appreciated. Best regards Neville

    Hi Jamie, Many thanks for taking the time to reply. I rarely drive the car hard so will see what availability I can get on the primacy 3. Best regards
  6. A Question About Performance Tyres? Ask The Michelin Expert!

    Hi Jamie, I have a 2006 Lexus SC430 just back from service running and handling fine but it will very shortly need new rear tyres. Rather than have what the dealer has available I have decided to start switching over to one consistent manufacturer and model. We live in the south of England and Tyre size is 245/40/R18. Decided on Michelin but could do with some advice on the final choice. Pilot Sport 3 - 245/40 R18 Y (97) E,A and 71DB and have also seen the 93 rated version but this takes full economy down to an F (but is this really a big difference) Other choice is the Primacy HP - 245/40 R18 Y (93) E,B and 70DB (lower noise rating ) Hope this makes sense . Best regards Neville
