Welcome. I never play with giving reviews etc, but now I just cannot prevent myself from doing that. I have no idea why people write good reviews about these tyres. I bought them because there were a lot of positive reviews about them. I put them in May it was quite sunny and dry but even such weather condition and dry road caused my ABS to turn on while braking (TRAGEDY). When the rain came tyres just started to swim and slip, no matter if moving-off, braking or cornering... The ESP was on almost everytime. I thought that maybe something is wrong with my car so I went to the fitting station to check the balancing. After visiting my mechanic I understood that 300GBP went down the drain...
These tyres are a total disaster. I bought them in spring in 2009 with the 2008DOT. I made a technical inspection in the beggining of winter and they were totaly damaged. After 10.000 miles huge cracks along the tread appeared. When driving 60MPH they rumble like chinese crap. When the rain falls I feel like I cannot control my car ( I almost lose control of my car totally). Uniroyals or Firestones deal with wet road much better than these. I drove over 200.000 miles on different tyres (chinese, german, japanese)... These were probably the worst tyres that I have ever used in my entire life. I wouldn't recommend them even to my enemies.
I bought these tyres on sale. They are worth their price. i used Matadors lately and they were a total crap. On Michelin Energy Savers everything is different. I felt like moving to another car one class higher. They have very low rolling resistance, and my power steering appeared to work better.My Skoda has a stiff suspension and Energy Savers- as they are made from soft mixture rubber- make my suspension to work much more silent. There is a total silence in my car and I have to get used to it :). Fast cornering just meks me smile. To sum up, I am very satisfied with Michelin Energy Savers and I can deifinitely recommend them.
I used Energy mxt aglis 41. They were very good but Energy Savers are way better. On dry road just excellent. Silent, comfortable. very good grip. it is almost imposible to skid. I cannot say wheter the fuel use was lowered because my driving style is very different. Very good / safe braking. Mine were produced in Russia but I dont have any restrictions. I recommend them as they appeared to me very safe. I will never change the tyre brand. Michelin Energy Saver are awesome. In addition I will say that even my wife found Energy Savers very safe and silent.
These tyres after 7.000 miles were damaged. I made an official complaint to Michelin but unfortunately they have lost my complaint form. After plenty of calls and 2.5 month of waiting they did not accept my complaint. They 'generously' proposed me to buy new tyres with 10% discount. It is freakin' joke! These were my last michelins. I will never buy them again. Last 3 models of Michelins that I had were ok but these are a total disaster. My ESP truns on every time when its just a little rain and the road is barerly wet. I dont recommend them to anybody !
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.
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.
