Alfred's TakeAlfred's Take

All we can say is that the Primacy Tour A/S is definitely the model engineered for a premium and luxurious driving experience, so it is reasonable that you should expect its price to be very high.

However, when compared to its closest rivals in terms of dry and wet performance, snow traction, comfort levels, and durability, this model certainly deserves the top position.


If you want a tire that maintains year-round traction, maximum comfort, no road noise, all-season capability, excellent traction on light snow, and great handling, then the Primacy Tour is a good choice to pick.

You could take advantage of the 60-day special warranty as it can be returned if it does not suit your driving performance.
