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

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy MXV4 S8

This is the stock tire on both our 2012 Altima and 2011 Camry. Total of 20k usage to date on both cars. It's the first new-car tire I've ever encountered that wasn't junk. For it's category it's a very nice tire. Quiet and comfortable.Doesn't handle the V6 Camry power well - can spin them at will, but that's Toyota's fault for not using a wider, stickier...  Read More

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

Just put a set on wife's 2008 Avalon, only driven 500 miles on dry roads so far, but VERY happy with these Pirelli's that replaced Michelin Energy MXV4's that wore out way too soon. Have a separate set of wheels/winter tires, so can't comment on snow/ice traction, but other reviews appear positive. Like the responsiveness as well as the ride, and they're...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (W-Speed Rated)

So I drive for work, and have put about 10k miles on these tires so far. I have done no less than seven 100 mile+ trips through snow storms so far with these tires and am thoroughly impressed. My car is very light (235 width) and a light 1.6L Ecoboost motor. My car handles tenfold better than it did with the stock Michelin energy. The only thing i'd say is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS

I have owned multiple vehicles, and some came with the Michelin MX4 high energy tires. I find the Continental DWS tire to be fare superior in just about every category that you have listed here. I more than pleased with this tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy MXV4 S8

These tires were stock from Mazda. I don't know how this tire can be rated as all season. Traction is extremely poor in the least amount of snow. It performs ok on dry roads. I will probably replace these tire before this winter is over.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy MXV4 S8

These tires are by far the BEST tires I have had on my Saab !!! The car handles great. My car feels like it's floating. Amazing ride. I highly recommend these tires.

If you drive a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy MXV4 Plus

These replaced the original Continental run-flats after 24000 miles at which point the wear bars were showing. These tires completely changed the character of the car. It now rides much more smoothly, quieter and the speedometer is more accurate. These tires were original equipment on my last two cars (Passats w/4Motion) and I loved them on those, too....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology

Just got these tires on 07 MDX. Ride quality is superb. Road noise reduction almost 100% from the old set of Michelin Energy. Will update when more miles are on these tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact with EcoPlus Technology

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...  Read More

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

I have 32,000 miles on these tires and probably have 10,000 miles left. Good life for a heavy full sized car. Not to great in snow, but not terrible. Seem to be fine on wet roads. I normally drive too fast and so far the tires have kept me on the road even when roads are sandy in the spring. Our roads in this part of New York are poor in quality with pot...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season

I am so happy with my Pirelli Scorpion Verde's that I can't wait to buy another pair. I had Michelin Energy's on my X5 and yes they are a good all around touring tire, however the price is just outragious. Plus, Pirelli's Scorpion Verde's to me are a far more superior tire from the ride, the handling and the way the tire is built. For example, as soon as...  Read More

Goodyear vs. Michelin Brand Showdown

Two of the most recognizable and respected brands in the industry are Michelin and Goodyear. Both brands have their fans, both brands have their detractors, but ask any sampling of people in the United States to name a couple of tire brands and Goodyear and Michelin will probably dominate the responses. A common question that we receive is: "Which brand is...  Read More
