Written on: 13/01/2011

Tried these after a pair of continentals lasted only 9,000miles.

They weren't that much dearer but thats me 10,000 miles in and with still 6 mm of tred left, they have proved great value.

There's no beating the continental on grip so you have to remember when powering through the corners that the car will slip and slide like its running on flats but once you've mastered slide control its rather fun to drive… Read Full Review

My 1998 Renault Laguna is fitted with michelin energy tyres. It does over 40 mpg and I contribute some aspect of this fuel economy to the tyres. I cannot quantify this. Road handling and road noise are excellent. The tyres handled two months of snow and ice without ever putting a "foot" wrong last winter… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/03/2010

I checked five stars for the value for money, but they came new on the Citroen hdi 1.6 and I've just ticked over 90,000kms. So although I didn't buy them as such, they've done extraordinarily well, and there's probably another 5,000km left at least but I won't trust them for another winter with kids in the back seat.

They pull out of an aqua plane really well and allow you to steer straight. At 110kph I started to drift but was able to hold it in a fairly deep puddle on the highway I didn't… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/02/2010

Had these on a previous Peugeot 106 and did 35,000 miles without a drama, so fitted then again to our new 106. Excellent grip in the dry and very good in the wet. Much quieter that the budget tyres they replaced even though there was still 4mm of tread left on the budgets. I don't like driving on budget tyres, quality tyres have a much shorter stopping distance. Finally the Mitchelins give excellent MPG… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/02/2010

You have to take my ratings are based on someone who does not drive fast, but do have at least two skiing holidays a year driving to the French Alps - the grip is fantastic and the winter in the uk this year has proven their worth for me never losing traction and we live on top of the North Downs - might consider buying winter tyres but so far these have been great only need chains when the temperatures are around zero in the Alps. Changed front to rear after about 25,000 miles loads of wear… Read Full Review

I have had Michelin Energy tyres on my astra (54plate) mk4 1.6 16v L.P.G. Duelfuel from new,(michelin recommendation) and I have had to change the front tyres every year (13,500 miles) the rear every 2 years. I get 34 mpg. from L.P.G. (local driving) and the front tyres brake from the road easily when pulling away in damp/wet conditions. I do not drive hard as I have a child in the car most of the time, I'm 49yrs old so not the boy-racer type. They are expensive and I would like to have a front… Read Full Review

you could consider to realign the car then. Think that's the real problem. Did your car suffer any damage in the past?

it may not be the tyres, its a 2004 car, its more likely worn shocks and bushes. ive had these tyres on my 2010 kia and there as good as any Tyre ive used or fitted on customers cars at my garage in abbeywood. im not saying the cars been abused. but shocks and bushes are the most common reason for low mpg and excessive Tyre ware. just my opinion.

Sounds like you should check your tyre pressures more often and get the Tracking checked.

Written on: 30/12/2008

Bought these when my continental premiuncontact 2's run out of tread. They have absolutely zero grip, making overtaking (even on a straight dry road) and junctions terrifying (though they seem better under braking than acceleration). I haven't noticed an improvement in economy or wear, so just about the only possible plus is that the lack of grip teaches you to drive more smoothly - and can be fun on roundabouts… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/11/2008

I have been working at a car dealership and have replaced 3 sets on our shuttle ES300 which is at 160,000 kms (100,000 miles). The last set just lasted 30,000 kms, about 18,000 miles. I also have them on my Chrysler 300M special and they do not have any life left after 40,000 kms (25,000 miles). Goodyear ' s Regatta 2 on my Dodge Caravan has 30% life left after almost 90,000 kms (55,555 miles). Michelins could not stand up to the Canadian winter; Goodyear had no problem ploughing through… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/09/2008

If you seek a hard wearing tyre, and are not too concerned about wet road grip (sensible driving is key here), then the Michelin Energy are great tyres. They may seem costly to purchase but will provide a worthy investment as they last for a very long time indeed.
Those extra pounds are well spent if durability is top of your requirments list… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/08/2008 by bleechy (6 reviews written)

I bought these for a Renault Megane MK 1. (only 20k miles though) I'm a very careful, slow driver. So I thought these would be ideal, until I went round a corner at 35 mph in the wet (downhill left) and the front left tyre locked up.
Motorway in the wet feels like your on ice on certain surfaces, in the dry the car feels un-secure, moving beneath you. Under acceleration and braking the car (as in another review) squirms.
I eventually bought new tyres (Firestone which were also £5 cheaper) after… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/07/2008 by PaulR8962 (1 review written)

I have had Michelin Energy tyres on my Golf 1.4s since I bought it with 14,000 miles on the clock. At 30,000 miles I now need to replace the front at less than 3mm and the backs are just under 5mm.
I have just started phoning for prices and I was shocked at the cost of these tyres. I had the impression that these were cheap tyres, probably subconciously due to their performance. I rated them at 5 as I did not really have an opinion on them, until I found out the price, now I think they are… Read Full Review

My polo used to slow down rolling down hills too, even on energy saver tyres, but my laguna and clio will roll far easier and far further with the clutch in, and the laguna uses sports tyres.

Written on: 26/05/2008 by KaiserChief (1 review written)

Michelin Energy E3A fitted to Toyota Avensis estate, lasted 42k (after swapping front & back at 25k). Good wet & dry grip, experienced this many times on M4 when white van man decides to change lane with no warning (difficult to indicate when making a phone call whilst slurping hot coffee I guess). Got a couple of mpg after changing to Energys also. Not the cheapest tyre but will pay back with high miles… Read Full Review
