Product description & features
An extremely fuel-efficient passenger car tyre developed for the drivers of hybrid and fuel-efficient passenger cars the Energy offers the best grip in its class on wet or dry roads due to an asymmetric tread pattern and textured spines.
The tyre features Michelin’s EnergySaver Construction combined with a unique silica-based tread rubber that helps improve engine fuel efficiency by keeping the tyre cooler.
This compound is moulded into a symmetric design that features siped, independent tread blocks - this design helps to combine reliable handling with a responsive braking performance without trading on the Energy Saver's fuel efficiency.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
