Anyone know the difference or have experience with these tires? Also interested in Bridgestone's performance snow tires. Don't need max snow traction as I drive my truck most of the Winter.
The Primacy Alpin PA3 should have slightly better snow and ice traction compared to a bit better handling and steering response with the Pilot Alpin PA3.

In 225/45R17 Bridgestone's most similar performance winter tire is the Blizzak LM60. The LM60 would be a noticeable step up in snow and ice capability from either Michelin PA3 model but not as performance oriented on dry roads.
