I think it has been launched in Malaysia so if anyone has got it, I wouldn't mind to hear from you about the tyres. Thank you in advance!

Out of curiosity, why are you considering this tyre? FYI, I'm only considering this because I want to try something more geared towards comfort from Michelin and this is the only one that has the right size for my rims (215/45/R17).

The XM1 seems quite popular, I can see it often on the road. But its the most basic tyre in Michelin range, so not sure if it will be as quiet as I hope to be. PP2 I hear not as quiet and comfort as claim in their advertisement... So remaining Michelin tyres to consider is Primacy LC.... Other brand also considering, I still need to clock 5k km more before changing.

Stock for Primacy LC has arrived, I called up a few shop to ask about the price for my size; 195/60R15....
One thing I discovered, all the shops (4 or 5 of them) quoted the same price. Is Michelin tyre standard pricing?
there is a recommended retail price list
the primacy lc depending on sizes are from thai and cn

Comparing to my old set of DNA dB which clocked slightly over 40k km, I find some improvement in noise; its more quiet now. And bigger improvement in dry grip and comfort. Don't have the chance to try out wet grip yet, but I think it should be good too. Will feedback after clocking more mileage.
I think there maybe people whom think DNA dB has bad grip, but after trying it out I find its not that bad. Taking on bends such as those CTE towards city direction; filtering to PIE (towards Tuas) or Clementi Ave 6 bend towards PIE (city) I can go slightly faster without worries.
Called up a few Michelin authorised dealer shop to enquiry, and the quote ranges from $135/pc to $160/pc for my size. I discovered those smaller tyre shop usually offer better price than the bigger ones. This is a very new tyre in Singapore market, some shops even told me they have not receive the stocks yet. I've read about the good review of Primacy LC from India and Malaysia forum, so eager to try this out myself.
Overall quite happy with the Ang Mo Kio tyre shop which sells me the tyre, apart than the usual stuff of replacing new valve stem assembly and balancing, they even wash my rims before installing.

Its not the jewelery shop... Johnny Tyre at BLK 5034, authorised dealer of Michelin Tyre.
Today almost whole day raining, good chance to test the wet grip. So far wet grip is quite good, I wanted to go faster but too many traffic on the expressway. No chance to try aquaplanning resistance cos our roads are quite well constructed, cannot find any puddle of water. Maybe the next opportunity when rain is heavier.

premacy lc also has this unique grove that provides some protection on rims unlike my previous hankook.
although the tyres costs are on the high side, overall i think it is a worth while purchase for the return of comfort that were missing from my ride for years.

unfortunately there is no stock for premacy lc, quoted by the michelin agent, no less than 5 tyres shops i've queried from were unable to get the tyres. i've only managed to clinch the deal through the close relationship i had with my workshop.. you can check with your regular tyres shop for more details, as well as one of the authorised reseller at amk mentioned in a couple of posts above.
as for price, this was a special price i've gotten, apologies for the non-disclosure.
