(1) Legal limit: 1,6mm, subject to regular wear of your tyres and compliance with the recommendations of the tyre and car manufacturers. If in doubt, consult a specialist. European Directive 89/459/CEE.
(2) The following tyre lines are designed to offer high level of longevity and performance that lasts: MICHELIN CrossClimate², MICHELIN CrossClimate 2 SUV, MICHELIN Primacy 4+, MICHELIN e.Primacy, MICHELIN Pilot Sport 4S, MICHELIN Pilot Sport 5, MICHELIN Pilot Sport EV, MICHELIN Pilot Sport 4 SUV, MICHELIN Alpin 6 and MICHELIN Pilot Alpin 5.
(3) "Last kilometers" being understood as until the minimum legal tread depth (1.6 mm in Europe). Please refer to the minimum legal tread depth in your country.
(4) TUV Rheiland Thailand conducted tests on wet and dry roads with a temperature of 27-30 C in January 2018 in Chonburi Province, Thailand, upon Michelin's request, to compare the Michelin Primacy 4 225/50R17 101W tires, both new and close to worn-out, with leading competitors' tires on a Honda Accord test vehicle driven at speeds of 0-80 km/h. The results showed that the new Michelin tires had a braking distance 2.5 meters shorter than the average braking distance of leading tires, and the close-to-worn-out Michelin tires had a braking distance 5.1 meters shorter.
(5) TUV Rheiland Thailand conducted tests on wet and dry roads with a temperature of 27-30 C in January 2018 in Chonburi Province, Thailand, upon Michelin's request, to compare the Michelin Primacy 4 225/50R17 101W tires, both new and close to worn-out, with leading competitors' tires on a Honda Accord test vehicle. The tests included measuring the noise level inside the car at speeds of 50-70 km/h and evaluating the comfort level at speeds of 30-50 km/h.
(6) Braking on wet roads for summer tyres, braking and traction on snow and wet roads for all-season and winter tyres and road handling or grip on track for sport tyres.
(7) Data from the Ernst & Young report entitled “Planned obsolescence is not inevitable” (May 2017).
(8) According to internal calculations made at Ladoux (Technology Center, Clermont-Ferrand, France): technical bulletin dated September 27, 2016, on raw materials, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions linked to early replacement of passenger car tyres.
