MICHELIN always aims to bring together multiple performances.
Driving involves taking responsibility. Because your tires are the only point of contact with the road, you ask a lot from them. We do whatever it takes to cover all angles in order to help you protect your loved ones today and tomorrow. That’s why we’re committed to constantly improving all tire performance factors together rather than being easily satisfied with just doing well on one at a time – a challenging feat that MICHELIN consistently achieves in a unique way through its innovative technologies.
Multiple Performances Together
At MICHELIN, we continuously push safety, durability and fuel efficiency, and even more performances, all at the same time and with no trade-offs. That’s what we mean by MICHELIN® Total Performance™, which has and will always be our difference on every tire.
Total Performance Tires
Serious Stopping Power
Advanced braking technology like 3D sipes with interlocking and thickness variation and a tread compound composed of silica allow the MICHELIN® Defender® to stop up to 31 ft. shorter than a leading competitor1.
Ultimately, high performance comes down to handling. It doesn’t matter what your car is capable of if it doesn’t have tires that can keep up. We’ve taken the lessons we’ve learned on the racetrack and applied them to tires for your car, such as the MICHELIN® Pilot® Super Sport. The results? Up to 12% better handling than leading competitors2.
The less rolling resistance a tire has, the higher its efficiency. Higher efficiency means better gas mileage. And that means paying less at the pump. Across our line of tires we’ve taken strides to reduce weight, improve contact with the road and lower rolling resistance. For example, the MICHELIN® Energy™ Saver A/S tire can save you up to $400 in fuel over the life of the tires at $3.75/gallon vs. a leading competitor3.
When driving in ice or snow, your tires must maintain grip with the road surface in order for you to maintain control of your vehicle. So, when you need to brake in winter conditions, count on the rigid zig-zag sipes of the MICHELIN® X-ICE® XI3 tire to increase your grip and keep you safer. The MICHELIN® X-ICE® XI3 stops up to 10% shorter on ice than leading competitors4.
