Michelin Energy Reviews

Given 97% (breakdown) while driving a Vauxhall (195/45 R16) on mostly motorways for 0 average miles
I cant really comment on the handling etc... as I drive a Diesel on the motorway... but I have noticed an improvement of 3/4 miles per gallon by running these on just the front of my car! Over a year that's getting me around 1300 miles for free! that's around £140 for me... so I get the cost of the tyres back in a year! And they say that there is an extra 20% life in these tyres to normal ones... so really im getting paid to fit these tyres!! Well worth it if you want an improved fuel economy and lower cost!

Replaced a set of Continental tyres in which I had no confidence. The Michelin Energy transformed the car, smooth comfortable ride, terrific levels of grip in dry & wet and no problems when using the V8 engine to its full potential.

Given 91% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Fiesta (175/65 R14) on mostly town for 2,500 easy going miles
Bought these secondhand for a bargain £20 for set of 4 with approx 6mm tread from a Ford Fiesta 2009 rims to fit onto my 2006 Ford Fiesta 1.25 Style to replace the problematic 195/50/15's that were fitted(rims damaged, couldn't balance out so constant shaking hence replaced). First thing is how much lighter the steering was with the Michelin Energy's. Secondly, the car was 30% quieter at 65mph(using a decibel meter) and thirdly, the car rolled so much better! So far i've only done 2.5k miles on them but end of summer and into winter now they've been fantastic.
Grip has been good, never has it broken away in dry or wet at anything up to the point where a normal driver pushes their normal car. The ride is noticeably comfier due to the higher 65 ratio sidewall compared to my previous 50 profile tyres. Wear seems to be very minimal, they do not lose any pressure at all, thats in 2 1/2 months, not a single psi drop in pressure. So far very impressed, when they eventually wear out they will be replaced with the same again.

Given 100% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Golf (195/65 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 49 average miles
Michelin Energy tyres were fitted as manufacturer's original equipment to my 2007 Volkswagen Golf 1.6 fsi.They have lasted just under 49,000 miles and had 3mm tread left on the front driving wheels and 4mm left on the rear wheels. They had never even had a puncture until yesterday.I am replacing all 4 today with the latest Michelin Energy Saver + at £73 a corner from North Eastern Tyres which is excellent value if they last as well as the originals.Another 2007 Golf in my family which had been fitted with Continentals is now on its third set of tyres over less mileage.

Given 80% (breakdown) while driving a MINI (175/65 R15 V) on mostly town for 45,000 average miles
45k and have 4mm left on rears and 2mm on front. V happy.
Mostly town driving as well.
Walls have started to crack on all 4 so will keep eye on them.
They have been comfy and performed well in most driving conditions.
Would buy again !!

Even though this tyre gives a comfortable ride, but it is not good enough in wet grip as well as aquaplaning. It is also tend to skid easily when you forced in sharp corner, especially in wet road.

Given 79% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Jetta 2.0 TDI (205/55 R16 V) on mostly motorways for 150 average miles
Tyres fitted to car when new. Changed front tyres at 44000 . Put new tyres on rear and put rear on front which have now done 54000 miles. Still have lot of tread for at least 6000 miles. But have got to change as tread is cracking up.

Look these tyres are really ok. Pricey - unless you look around but wear really well and are good tyres.
