Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology

Wow! Replaced original Michelin Energy LX4 with 60K miles on them with these Conti ProContact EcoPlus in 235/60R17. I could not be more pleased. They are so much better in all aspects to the LX4s. Better traction, better noise, better ride. My Odyssey feels like it is on rails and at times I almost forget I that am in a mini van. I would buy again in a heart...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

68k on these and they have been just fine. Rotated them at 25k and then again at 50k, just now looking for a new set - will easily make it to 70,000. Noise is good on the black stuff, little loud on concrete. Can't really comment on snow performance - car is too light (Rav4 2wd) to go anywhere in the snow, don't get much down here anyway. All in all a great...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

These are the second set of the same tires on my 2011 Fusion that has 80,000 miles on it. I am not too happy about the price considering the mileage I am getting from them. This is the only complaint I have with this tire. I gave them a fairly high rating except the tread wear.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Purchased the Pilot A/S 3 91V-rated to replace ContiPro Contact SSR 91H run flats. I carry a spare in the trunk.Conti lasted about 25-30k and were gone. Run flats give you piece of mind but they were noisier than Pilot - I noticed it from the beginning I installed these on. Pilots are also provide a softer ride over small bumps and anomalies on a road; Conti...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

Very pleased with the performance of these tires - far superior than the OEM Goodyear Infinity that only lasted 41,000 miles and got up to 48mpg at best with fair performance. With the Michelins at first got around 46-47 mpg, then as they wore in got closer to 50 mpg, with 52 being the best in ideal circumstances (summer, no A/C, etc). Ride is extremely...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

These tires were replacements for the original equipment tires which I only got 40,000 miles out of them. These tires have been wonderful in all weather conditions. We have traveled through 34 states in a lot of different weather conditions and I have never been disappointed. It's time to replace them and I will be buying these again.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy LX4

This tire came stock on my Lincoln and I currently have 50,000 miles on them, not to mention they are original since 2008. Overall traction is great, with superb ride comfort and low road noise. Winter traction is above average as well. Definitely not a snow tire, but for light to moderate conditions, they work well.After 50,000 miles the tires are done and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy LX4

Every Michelin I've ever had has been quiet and long lasting, and every set never giving me a flat, tire pull, leaking, or any other annoyance. I have them rotated every 5,000 miles and they last for 50,000 miles or more. This set never needed a re-balance, staying smooth after every rotation. Tire pressures are checked every month, with pressures adjusted...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy LX4

Michelin Energy is agreat handling tire. All Michelin tires are over priced in my opinion but they certainly are one of the best performing tires on the market. You get what you pay for. As for longevity, these Energy tires held up very well for my mostly highway driving style.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

These tires came standard on my 2001 Honda Accord. I LOVED THEM!!!!! These were some of the best tires I have ever owned. I swaped them out after 60,000 miles because the tires were getting up there in age, but they definately had a lot of life left in them. The handling was amazing on these tires and the ride was comfortable and quiet. These are an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I replaced the OEM Michelin Energy Saver R/S tires on my Fore C-Max Hybrid at about 39,000 miles. The Pirellis feel beefier, and the C-Max rides significantly more comfortably and quietly with them on. With both tires, the handling is precise, though the turning radius is abominably wide with either.One unanticipated difference is that the vehicle's fuel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia

My initial impression on dry roads only is extremely positive. This was a night and day difference from my admittedly worn Michelin Energy MXV4 tires (discontinued). Even if I were to compare this tire to the Michelins as new, I would say that these ride much softer and they absorb potholes and road imperfections much better. These tires are significantly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

Was getting combined 28.5 mpg with my '12 Mustang v6. Traded it in for a '14 mustang, almost the exact same car- just newer. With the oem tires on the '14- I am only getting 24.3 mpg. Debating spending the extra cash to replace those tires for a new set of these.Can't rate winter conditions- a Mustang is not a winter car. Since I live in rural IL, have a 4x4...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy MXV4 S8

I ride on two sets of this for 8 years and 100k miles (160k km in Canada). Over the years they did make some improvement to it. The newer set does have improve wet performance and tread wear. The tire is ride good in dry condition, decent in wet condition. It's practically useless in the winter, I have to drive with a lot of care. The tread wear out pretty...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy Saver A/S

This is THE tire for a Prius. My mileage increased 5-7mpg over the Pirelli! You can feel the difference driving the car. It accelerates easier (less throttle) and coasts much better. I've previously had the Bridgestone and Pirelli tires and the Michelin Energy Saver is far superior.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy LX4

I had to write a review after reading some of the ones posted. This is the third set of these tires I've had on this vehicle and they are superb. Got 65K-66K on each set. I can only surmise that these other fellows did not keep them inflated and balanced. No reason not to get 60K plus. I have only used Michelins for the past 30 years. My Odyssey came with...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy MXV4 S8

I am driving a Challenger R/T so you should know this is a 4200 lb vehicle. I think the tires had a lot of work to do keeping it all together. I drove the tire for about 23,000 miles then hit the Georgia mountains and even the Atlanta Motor Speedway! The tires seemed to do well but nothing spectacular as far as dry pavement cornering. Although they are very...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Wow what a tire! I replaced Michelin Energy Savers with Defender. The result was astounding! I no longer get stuck in the snow, and do not have to wear ear plugs. Cornering both wet and dry improved substantially. So Huge plus for the tire: Quet, long lasting (after 20K no wear shows), great traction. Downside: very expensive.   Read More
