Initial Review, 2,000 Miles on Tires
March 02, 2013

I have a 2010 Prius that came with Yokohama 33's. These wee rough riding tires in the Prius. After reading consumer report, who rated the Continental ProContact Eco + as a great tire I went to TR and bought a set. The tires wandered on a four lane road at 65mph so I returned to TR and they said I could return the Continentals by the end of the month if I didn't like them. TR put a set of Michelins on hold for me. After a few days I change the tire pressure to the tire pressure on the door. This cut out 90% of the drift and by the end of the month almost all drift was eliminated due to the tires wearing in. Reading TR reviews on both tires, at the end of the month I returned the Eco+ for the Energy Saver ES. As soon as I drove out of the garage I knew I would not keep the Michelins. They were Hard, stiff, and a rough ride. The mileage is 1-2 better on the Continentals and the ride is a 9-10 where the Energy savers is a 3-5. I missed the return date at TR and am now stuck with the Michelins. Don't always trust reviews for ride but if you have a Prius and you hate the hard seats and want a comfortable ride go with the Continental ProContact Eco + over Michelin Energy Saver A/S or the Yokohama 33 that came with the car. The Yokohama 33 rode about like the Michelins, 3-5, Continentals 9-10.

 

Best Tires for Fuel Economy

Wednesday, April 17, 2013 by Steve Huffman

With high fuel prices, everyone is looking for ways to save money at the pump. The tires on your car have an impact on your fuel economy. One easy way to reduce your rolling resistance is to always maintain proper air pressure in your tires. An underinflated tire takes more energy to roll - costing you money.

Today, many manufacturers have designed tires to help reduce rolling resistance and improve overall fuel economy. They have been able to accomplish this by making improvements to the rubber compound, tread design and sidewall construction. When many of these tires were introduced a few years ago, it was initially thought, by many, that they may suffer in their traction capabilities, especially in the wet. To their credit, the manufacturers have been able to overcome these concerns and have been able to produce some very capable tires.

One of our best-selling low rolling resistance tire is the Bridgestone Ecopia EP422. This Grand Touring All-Season tire offers an excellent ride and good all-season traction. The Ecopia EP422 uses an all-season tread compound featuring Bridgestone's unique NanoPro-Tech (Nanostructure-Oriented Properties Control Technology) to reduce rolling resistance and energy loss while maintaining dry, wet and wintertime traction. This tire is offered with a 65,000-mile treadlife warranty.

Another great option is the Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology. You may be familiar with the ProContact model as it has been an Original Equipment tire on many vehicles. The EcoPlus Technology's all-season tread compound features Continental's Tg-F Polymers and +Silane additives to improve treadwear, fuel efficiency and traction on slippery roads. This tire is offered with an 80,000-mile treadlife warranty.

Michelin's Defender features Green X technology to provide a level of energy efficiency among the highest on the market for its category without compromising other key characteristics, such as traction and treadwear. The tire is offered with either a 90,000- or 80,000-mile treadlife warranty depending on the speed rating.

Initial Review, 50,600 Miles on Tires
April 08, 2013

I have a set of these Michelin LX4 on my Odyssey EXL. I had always been happy with Michelin in the past on my Honda Accords and Nissan. They are generally more quiet than any other tires of comparable costs, particularly when they get olders (35K+). This set performs well for the most part with no exception. I rotated my tires every 7.5K so they wear evenly and keep the pressure between 35 to 40 psi depending on the weather (high pressure during the winter months). They are very quiet on the city and highway unless the road surface have grooves but never pave up in some states. I'd say that we did about 30K on high way and 20K in city. They are probably good for another 4-5K in the summer before I have to replace them. The tires traction is very good in dry, wet or light snow conditions now that the tread had worn out but it is used to be good in 4-6 in" of snow too when it was newer. I will likely replace them with the Michelin Defender which has a better tire life (60K+) for almost the same price. I think if the Defender is quiet as this tire, I will be happy.

These were OE tires on my Odyssey, and I've just put them back on after taking off my X-Ice xi2s, which are excellent. The LX4s are loud, hard riding tires abviously designed to squeeze out a tenth of an MPG more in testing. They were absymal in snow/ice, and hydroplane fairly easily. Treadwear has been okay, although the previous owner did not rotate them so two have worn faster.

I am considering replacing them with Defenders, which have gotten good reviews.

March 22, 2013

Six months ago, I bought the car used with 19,200 miles on it. At the time the tread depth was 5/32. Just had a 5,000 mile check and was told the tread depth is now 3/32 or less, and the tires need to be replaced. Original owners of the car bought it in Maine and resided in Florida for a couple of years, so I cannot speak to their driving habits, however, I have driven about 75/25% local miles. The tires is supposedly rated for 50,000 miles, and the car will have about half that when the tires are replaced. While they are quiet and ride comfortably, the durability is completely unsatisfactory.Though the tread is now worn, this past winter I have not found them to handle well on wet roads and snow.

These are my first winter tires and compared to the horrid Energy LX4s that were OE on the van, these cut through snow and ice like nothing I've ever seen before. Sure, if you drive fast on packed snow and jam on the brakes you can break traction, but in normal driving I never lost grip.

As soon as I put them on, I noticed how quiet and smooth they are - far superior to the OE tires. Handling and cornering is a bit 'squishier' than the OE tires, but I got used to that very quickly.

For me, the real benefit is the extra margin of confidence that when I hit the brakes or need to turn corners on the snow/slush/ice that covers Toronto from December to April, my van will respond as I expect. I have not had any close calls or nervous moments with these tires, in contrast to the LX4s I ran through last winter, or my previous all-seasons on other vehicles.

I very strongly recommend these tires to others.

I purchased these tire right before winter and am happy with them for the most part. They get a little hard below 20degrees but seem to get better after a few miles. They are good in snow and very good in the rain. They seem to be wearing very well so far and hope they give better tread life than the Michelin Cross Terrain that they replaced. I did notice a increase in mileage of almost a mile per gallon which I was impressed by. All in all I would buy them again.

This tire was purchased for a 2005 Honda Accord Hybrid. Tire performs great in wet and dry conditions. Very impressed with the noise levels experienced with this tire... nearly silent on good roads and greatly improved on all other surfaces. Fuel economy dropped 3 mpg as compared to the previous tires(Michelin Primacy MXV4) Much of the difference may be new vs. old tires. Rolling resistance is noticeably higher than previously. Takes more energy/power to accelerate to and maintain speed on highway.

These tires came on my car. They're good when dry, OK when wet, lousy in snow. I have 34,000 miles on my car and use snow/winter tires in the winter. The tires have no more than 20,000 miles on them, but are worn out and provide very little traction when wet and no traction in snow now.

Initial Review, 700 Miles on Tires
February 27, 2013

This tire came standard with the Toyota Camry Hybrid LE. These tires are rated low rolling resistance (LRR) and thus they might provide a better fuel efficiency. They perform well on dry or wet roads in the city. Cornering could be better; if your driving style is rather spirited, you will notice some sliding of the rear wheels when taking a turn too tightly. Where this tire disappoints is on wet and cold pavement. I drove up to Snoqualmie pass in Washington state last weekend and at 70 MPH going uphill on the wet freeway (outside temp 38 F) the tires lost traction and the car felt like it was slightly skidding. I had to slow down to 60 MPH. It wasn't really confidence inspiring. The tires handled well on slushy snow, although brisk acceleration caused the wheels to spin and the anti-skid light to come on. I have not had a chance to test these tires on ice or deep snow, yet. I always carry tire chains in the trunk just in case.

Overall, this tire is ok for driving in the city if you don't expect lots of snow. If you like to drive up to the mountain passes or you expect snow in your area, make sure that you have tire chains or install a set of winter tires in the winter. Also, this tire feels generally rather stiff, at least compared to the Pilot Exalto A/S that we had on the old car. I would not buy this tire myself and I wished that the Camry had come with a more reliable tire like the Primacy MXV4 (or even the Pilot Exalto A/S).

The tires ride comfortably. The noise is quieter than the oe tires, but still noticeable. The tires handle well in light snow and rain. Deep snow has not been available. Tread wear is not appreciable at this time, I will need to look at tread wear at 20M miles. Good tire, but I will look at the Michelin Defender when I replace tires next time. There was not much available in Michelin in 225/65/17 when I bought these at a reasonable price.

Great tires, came on the car new. Comfortable and smooth riding. They seem to be wearing pretty good, but I only have just over 5,000 miles on them, I'll know better when I have 10,000 miles on them. There is a little road noise, probably because I have to keep 35 psi pressure on them, required by Toyota specs. They handle excellent here in the desert area in Phoenix where I live. This new Camry drives like a sports car with these tires, love them so far.

Overall quite happy with these tires. They are smooth, comfortable and priced great for Michelin's. They seemed to wear great also, with lots of tread left. They help with mileage as claimed; I went from 9.8L/100km's to 9.3L's/100km's-- approx 1.5 MPG, so that was an added bonus.
On my vehicle they could be 5% quieter would be my only complaint. In the last 2000 miles or so they were becoming a bit louder, but not objectionable.
These tires are not great in the snow as noted-- I got caught in quite a bit before switching to my snows for the season. They are passable in a pinch, but everyone should be on dedicated snow tires if snow is on the ground regularly where you live anyway, right?
I would also not buy these if you want handling and responsive road feel, as that is not these tire’s mission. On my luxury SUV, they are a good fit for highway cruising but if you corner hard you will feel the soft sidewall flex and they don't have a very responsive steering feel. They are quite lightweight though so that helps keep them from being ponderous feeling. They drive fairly nimbly actually. They are 2lbs per tire lighter than the LX4's that were on my vehicle, which is quite a bit for unsprung weight. Even though these Energy Saver's are softish they never feel too soft, nor fully in control of my heavy SUV. If I owned a sports car, my opinion would not be as high though.
In the end I would happily buy these again as long as the price doesn't go up much from where it is and I guess that's the best endorsement a tire owner could give.

Put on a new set of Nexen tires and the car does not drive as good as the worn out Michelins drove !

Initial Review, 14,000 Miles on Tires
December 26, 2012

Well balanced all around tire which I was so glad to pick. As soon as the vehicle has worn this tire, the ride became softer and smoother, and best of all; the vehicle turned out very quiet regardless of any road surface. I must confess that I did not realize how much road noise was pronounced until I replaced old Yoko to this Michelin. Now, I neither raise my voice up to communicate with the person who sits next to me nor crank the volume up to listen to my favorite music. Both dry and wet traction are just adequate to put my foot down comfortably – even under the torrential downpour in TX, or 2-4 inches of fresh snow in OK, whereas the vehicle feels lighter for acceleration and gets easier to maintain its speed.

Sure, some people might feel scary due to the coasting nature of low road resistance tire; but, hey, this is definitely not one of the Ultra High Performance All-Season tires. So, let’s face it. We cannot have a great mileage and highest grip at the same time. There should be a tradeoff and we must understand the name of the game in the first place. Thus, if you are looking for a tire which allows you to do maximum attack on each and every corner, there are bunch of great tire out there. Instead, if you are looking for a moderate, well balanced tire with the great mileage as a bonus, please try one of these and I believe you will not be disappointed.

FYI, here are some additional numbers from our recent cross-country trip.
35.2mpg (from Albuquerque to Amarillo; 325.5miles/9.25gal)
35.5mpg (from Amarillo to Oklahoma City; 258.6miles/7.28gal)
The vehicle having 5MT carried two adults with full load of cargo. All we did was topped off Shell regular gasoline, set the cruise control at 60mph (in another word, the engine rev was kept at 2,500rpm), and enjoyed the view during the road trip. As I am not a Mileage expert, in a similar condition, my previous tire Yokohama Avid H4S gave me barely up to 31mpg. Not a bad choice to improve fuel efficiency about 13%!

I purchased this tire after having previously used the Goodyear GT+4 and Michelin Energy MX4's. I have few miles on these but I have to say that the ride, noise, and handling on these tires is superb. I was looking at the Kumho Ecsta Platinum but at the factory sizing they only had them in the Z rating and that seemed to soft. I have a 100,000 on my Galant and I am really appreciating the difference between these and my Michelin's. That being said I am for the first time inflating the tires at the Mitsubishi specs which is 29psi front and 32 psi back. I think I had been riding 35 psi on all four for years and likely this is what all of the oil change places fill them. I am very impressed with the tire installation places tire rack recommends as their star performers.

We replaced the Michelin S8 Energy tires that came on my wife's Lexus RX350. Although we were happy with the Michelins, the Alenza's give the car a much better ride. Based on the tread wear rating, the Alenza's should last about 30% longer and are less expensive as well. I would highly recommend them for this car.
