Michelin Energy Saver 205/55 R16 91 V *
Designed for city cars, MPVs and family cars.
The tyre that reduces running costs, respects the environment and enables a shorter braking distance!
* Less fuel used
* Outstanding longevity
* More safety
Less fuel used
Save up to 80 litres of fuel.
MICHELIN ENERGY™ Saver lasts 6,000 miles longer. Longer-lasting tyres also result in fewer worn tyres to recycle!
Your safety is always a priority for MICHELIN. Your braking distance is up to 3 metres shorter on wet roads.
Less fuel used and more safety in the wet due to a new generation 100% silica-based rubber compound
In 1992, Michelin launched its 1st generation of low fuel consumption “green tyres”, made possible by the partial substitution of carbon black with silica.
MICHELIN Energy Saver uses the latest generation silica which almost completely replaces the carbon black.
More safety in the wet, maintained mile after mile due to the Durable Security Compound (DSC)
The Durable Security Compound is a new ingredient in the tread rubber. It is aromatic oil free (complying with the European Directive which came into force in January 2010).
It improves wet braking, not only when the tyre is new, but also as it wears.
By maintaining the rigidity of the tread rubber, the Durable Security Compound ensures efficient braking during the whole life of the tyre (Michelin Patent).
Outstanding longevity due to a mixing process exclusive to Michelin
This exclusive Michelin process allows for simultaneous combination of all the tread ingredients, with perfect control of the mixture consistency and molecular interaction.
Tread rubber performance is very dependent on the quality of the molecular bonding of its 14 individual ingredients (elastomers, sulphur, antioxidants, silica, etc.).
The new mixing process enhances the performance of the 100% silica-based compound and the DSC compared to using a non-Michelin process.
Tyre Michelin Energy Saver in the size 205/55 R16 91 V, according to information given by manufacturer, it has the following driveability parameters:
Fuel efficiency (rolling resistance)
Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a color-coded scale.
A class (green) stands for the highest fuel efficiency rating (=the lowest rolling resistance).
G class (red) marks the lowest fuel efficiency rating (= the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and fumes emission, thus the lower the resistance, the lower fuel consumption and exhaust fumes emission is.
Wet grip’ is the tyre’s ability to adhere to the road in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on one aspect of wet grip – the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to F:
A class stands for the best braking performance, whereas G class stands for the worst breaking performance. It is one of the crucial parameters influencing the road safety.
Tyres contribute to the amount of pass-by noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
