Michelin Energy Saver 205/55 R16 91 V *
Michelin ENERGY SAVER tyres belong to the generation of environmentally-friendly "green" tyres. Innovative technology ensures much lower rolling resistance and, as a result, reduced fuel consumption. This is thanks to the partial replacement of soot with silica. The necessary safety levels are provided thanks to the Durable Security Compound (DSC), an entirely new tread component that does not contain highly aromatic oils. This innovative compound allows for optimal braking thanks to stabilisation of the tread rigidity.
Information about the manufacturer:
The Michelin group was founded in 1889 by two Frenchmen - Edouard and André Michelin. A long history and the use of innovative technology means that Michelin is now one of the world's largest tyre manufacturers. The French group has won F1, WRC and GP Moto world titles. Michelin is also a majority shareholder in brands such as: Riken, Taurus, Siamtyre, Tigar, Euromaster, Warrior, Kormoran, Recamic, Kleber and BFGoodrich.
Tyre Michelin Energy Saver in size 205/55 R16 91 V, according to information given by manufacturer, it has the following driveability parameters:
Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)
Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.
Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.
Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
