Questions and Answers for the Michelin Energy Saver

2019-03-29 - Hello Tyre Reviews! I wonder if you can help me please? I need to replace the two front Michelin Energy Saver tyres on my Mini Cooper 1.5 which came with it when new (195 55 R16 W). Is this the best tyre do you think? I've seen some reviews saying they're not very good in the wet. I don't mind paying the high price for Michelin. But are there any other worthy alternatives that I should consider please? Many thanks for your time and help! Ian

Top Michelin Energy Saver Review

Given 83% while driving a Opel Corsa D 1.4 (195/55 R16 T) on a combination of roads for 50,000 average miles
Original tyres fitted to the car. Driven the remarkable 91000km (56000miles) with these tyres, of which 20000km (12500miles)were in the Uk's hard tarmac. The rest have been covered in bumpy and slippery as hell Greece. Not the best to drive at the limit but for an average driver like me are a respectable choice. Replaced them this week; with Michelin Energy Saver of course.

Given 83% while driving a Ford Focus MK3 (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 4,200 spirited miles
Positives: very economical, good handling and feedback, low noise, good stability at high speed, but these are not sporty tires, if pushed hard in the corners they will squeal and loose grip if the clutch is dropped too sudden.
Also, abysmal on unpaved rods with a little water and mud on them.
Definitely excellent tyres for economical driving on good roads.

Given 69% while driving a Hyundai i20 (195/55 R16 H) on mostly town for 13,500 average miles
Will not be using these Michelin Energy Saver Tyres again !
Although the handling is good, the fuel performance is very poor
Not surprising as it’s rated ‘E’ but how can energy saver tyres have a fuel rating of ‘E’ ?

Will swap for Michelin CrossClimates plus with a ‘A’ fuel rating next

Are cheap winter tyres safe, or a false economy? Watch this video to find out!
Given 80% while driving a Honda Civic 1.8 (195/65 R15 H) on mostly town for 50,000 spirited miles
Even on a hot summer afternoon, you won't hear these tyres screech while taking a sharp U-turn. My set of tyres lasted for 80,000KMs, still had some thread left but they had become hard. The grip with these tyres on a cold winter morning is not very good. However, comfort level is good.

Given 46% while driving a Honda 1.6 I DTEC (180/60 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 15,000 easy going miles
The dry grip is good, in the wet the tyre can let go quite quickly. The main issue is that all 4 tyres developed tiny cracks on the edges after just over 2 years and 15k miles. The front two were really bad so it was MOT failure. So with 5mm front/6mm rear they had to be replaced.

Given 93% while driving a Peugeot 407 4 door sedan 2.0 petrol (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 70,000 average miles
Simply the best. Tyres at the back have done 100k plus now and are still in acceptable state.
