Michelin Primacy Alpin PA3
Initial Review: 1,000 miles on tires
November 29, 2012

I bought this tire to replace a worn-out set of three-year-old Yokohama IG-20s. They are very quite on the highway (for a winter tire), slightly better fuel economy than my summers (probably due to cold weather and non runflat), and braking is unbelievable on snow and ice. I was recommended these because they have a 55,000 km treadwear guarantee, so we will see how they last. Pulling away from a stop on snow covered roads still makes the traction control activate, but once moving they are very stable. Only a more aggressive snow tire on the rear would be better at low speed grip. Starting in 2nd gear does help somewhat. I will provide an update at the end of the winter.
