Why Compare?

Pirelli Cinturato P7 and Michelin Primacy are tires that have equivalent tread life ratings. Beyond that, there is a world of difference when it comes to other aspects like wet traction, handling on dry pavement or snow grip. For this reason, they make for an excellent comparison between two brands in the same market segment with different strengths and weaknesses. Let’s see how they compare, shall we?

Tire Type

Pirelli Cinturato P7 is an All-Season Tire with an asymmetric tread pattern intended for dry and wet conditions. These tires are designed to be the highest performing products from Pirelli’s line of passenger car tires. Michelin Primacy tires are made for All Season Summer Tire performance and have an asymmetric tread pattern that provides very good traction in wet and dry conditions.

Tire Size

It is easy to notice that both tires have a wider size to fit many different rim sizes. Size on those Pirelli cinturato p7 and Michelin primacy three tires depends on the width of the tire. Both tires have comes with different width and you can choose from the width you need.

Both tires are designed with the same sidewall, construction style, letterings and number of grooves. The sidewall is a little bit thicker on both tires and it will help to handle bumpy and uneven roads. Pirelli cinturato p7 comes with 15 inches to 21 inches rim size. Keep in mind every rim size also comes with different widths of tire. On the other hand, Michelin primacy 3 Comes with 16 inches to 19 inches rim size. Keep in mind every rim size also comes with different widths of the tire.

Warranty Mileage

It is the same story with both tires, but the Pirelli cinturato p7 offers a decent advantage of a few miles over its rival Michelin primacy 3.
This is down to the Pirelli tire being slightly more durable- it remains intact for many extra miles after reaching its tread wear limit when compared with its rival.

The Michelin primacy three has typically lasted 40,000 miles and a little over before being retired, while the cinturato p7 (in average weather conditions) has lasted for around 70,000 miles.

Load Capacity

Both tires come with Load Index Rating 91 but both have different load capacities in the load capacity. Michelin primacy 3 has a load capacity of 1356 Pounds and Pirelli Cinturato P7 has 1356 Pounds. Rating 91 means max vehicle weight is 8110 pounds and that’s why the two tires have a difference in load capacity. For example, truck tires will have a higher load capacity than passenger cars or SUV tires.

Rolling Resistance

Both tires have outstanding rolling resistance performance, so we don’t have to worry about it. In general low profile (50 series) tires will have a better result than high profile (60-70 series) tires because of weight and height. Both tires with 300 treadwear ratings mean they will last 6000 miles or six years if you replace them every 10,000 miles.

Tread Depth

The Pirelli Cinturato P7’s have a tread depth of 11 32nds and the Michelin Primacy3’s are 9/32nds. A simple does the tread depth measurements to use the procedure that hooks up to your air compressor; I’ll talk about it in more detail later if you’re interested.

Speed Rating

Both tires come with the speed rating of H. This means they are good on highways and can be used for the city. But in my opinion, riding on city roads with that speed rating is a good idea. With the H rating you can go with up to 130 Speed (mph).

Suitable For

Both tire also suits difference type of vehicle. Pirelli Cinturato P7 Suitable for best passenger car, including BMW 4/ 3 Series – Mini Countryman/Paceman. On the other hand, Michelin Primacy 3 build for vehicles like BMW 5 & 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Audi A6.


The differences between Pirelli Cinturato P7 and Michelin Primacy 3 are numerous. From tread design, fuel efficiency, and noise levels, the buyer has to consider a lot. This article aims not to declare one tire as superior over the other but merely help buyers in their decision-making process.
