Questions and Answers for the Michelin Energy Saver Plus

2016-05-23 - I've noticed that these tyres come in 2 different tread paterns with the same name, according to their size. Is that correct?

It's not unusual for the tread pattern of tyres to alter slightly as the tyre width increases, with a lot of manufacturers putting in an extra circumferential rib to their larger sizes.


2016-06-28 - I am about to change my tyres and have been very pleased with my Michelin Energy Savers. After nearly 2 years of use totalling 38,000 miles and getting an average 62.5 mpg from my Honda Civic Tourer, I am sticking with Michelin but cannot decide between the Michelin Energy Saver Plus and the fairly new Michelin Cross Climate. From what i have read if I could get similar life out of the latter, that would be the best choice but I am concerned that I will get less life from the Cross Climate. Any thoughts would be most welcome. Thanks.

The CrossClimate is reported to have slightly better wear than the Energy Saver+, and much improved wet grip. The Energy Saver+ will still have the rolling resistance advantage in certain sizes, but the difference will be small.


2017-12-09 - Michelin Energy Saver Plus,205/55/16,tyre weight?

We don't have an exact weight for the Michelin Energy Saver+ on record, but it should weigh around 8kgs.


2019-02-16 - The energy saver plus are tires aimed for excellent fuel efficiency but their fuel efficiency rating is C!?! I have bridgestone t005's and their fuel efficiency is poor compared to the toyo nano energy i had before. The fact that these Michelin are rated C will they be worse in fuel efficiency compared to my B rated t005's?

There's a chance they will be, yes, but different car and tyre combinations can work differently. Don't forget a tyres rolling resistance improves with wear, and double check your tyre pressures as a few PSI can make a difference too.

Top Michelin Energy Saver Plus Review

Given 83% while driving a Ford Fiesta (175/65 R14 T) on mostly town for 25,000 average miles
Very quiet and comfortable, good braking on wet and dry. Moderate handling. Good fuel economy, very good wear. But sidewalls are very soft and poor. Price is very high.

Given 63% while driving a Volkswagen Golf 7 TDI (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 40,000 spirited miles
I have those tyre on my Golf Mk7 for last 40,000 km. They don't wear, I would easily get another 40,000km out of them. I do drive hard and like to take corners also hard. Over all the tyre is good, but I find it very loud on motorways. Its also no where near ContiSportContact 6 for handling in the wet. Ill be going back to Continentals for my next tyre. But overall, tyre is good and exceptionally good at not wearing. Would be ideal for Taxi's.

These are the best tyres in the world. Watch now!
Given 73% while driving a Hyundai i20 (185/60 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 18,000 spirited miles
I have around 30k km with the tyres, with plenty of tread left. Personally I push the tyres quite a lot, and I didn't have any real issue with this tyre, especially with it's category and price. I have even driven on snow, where of course it's slippery, but drivable. Would recommend them for casual use, but if you want something more aggressive and high performance, I would look somewhere else.

Nissan LEAF Tekna (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Good tyre all round for my 10,000 miles on them. On an EV they break loose on full excelleration on dry summer road around 17°c . They spin for 1 Sec over taking but slight adjustment and they feel really well sure footed . Tbis mus the the compromise between low rolling resistance to their touting primacy tyre.
Never let me down under city braking in slot on emergency brake tests with pedestrians. Not once did abs kick in.
So all in all a good tyre as you don’t notice them then they are good.
Only one spin out under load when grrip goes light under hard acceleration from a torqued ev Nissan Leaf .
