Quiet, long service life, predictable, cheap on a per mile basis
Expensive, noisy when pressing on
Michelin Energy E3A tyres are designed to be a hard wearing, low noise, low fuel consumption tyre with as little as possible compromise in other respects such as the all-important grip. They achieve this objective in both my personal and our fleet experience.
Outright grip is less than other tyres but under stress conditions, the Michelins are stable and progressively let go, rather than offer lots of grip but suddenly start to skid.
Still, drive hard and the Energy tyres are probably not for you. Spend a lot of time on the motorway and these booties will suit your car.
