We could tell you all about MICHELIN® tires and their key performances in categories like braking, handling and fuel efficiency. But it’s a lot more convincing to show you. Watch these videos and see how the Right Tire Changes Everything™.
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 competitor 3.
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.
