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 45% while driving a Volkswagen Polo 6N (215/65 R16) on for 100 miles
It is the worst tire that I have ever used. It came with VW Polo stock, and I ve changed them Continental All Season. Michelin Energy saver is especially bad on wet roads in both ways handling and braking. I do not recommend this tire

Given 66% while driving a Volvo V60 D2 (205/60 R16) on mostly town for 100,000 average miles
Tires are quite good, they last more than other brands, but tread deterioration tend to appear after 50% of the usable tire.

Given 55% while driving a Toyota Corolla Altis (205/65 R15) on mostly town for 0 easy going miles
I am driving Toyota Grande 2015 model 1.8cvti, I had Michelin Xm2 before and drove upto 85000 kms, after having feedback about the tires i decided to switch to michelin every savor plus and i ordered it, i was surprised the experience that there was no new tyre feel in it. i can feel even low bumps on the road plus noise was too loud for me adding another kind of roaring sound. i checked the alignment and then checked them again but noise was there. I am not so satisfied from them i returned it to the shop and now thinking to move to Continental CC6 or Yokohama advan db.

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.
