Great tyre

published

Absolutely great tyres. Put them on my 2008 Honda Civic. Grip is excellent alot better than I expected for the price. Nice and quiet and wet weather grip is superb. Road feedback is great I know the limits of the tyres where as the previous inferior brand I had were unpredictable

Second time around

published

Bought these for a Toyota Aurion after the first set lasted 6 years.
They have excellent grip, they are quiet even on rough roads and have great longevity.
I highly recommend paying more for a quality tyre.

Purchased in July 2019 at JAX Tyres for $130.00.

Fantastic but pricey tyre

published

Have run these on a Toyota Camry and a Prius - best tyre I've ever used. Quiet, comfortable, great dry and wet grip and superior fuel economy coupled with a 80000km lifespan. Obviously not a sporting tyre as the soft sidewalls tend to roll a bit in corners, but these are meant for long, high speed touring and commuting trips where a supple, quiet ride is paramount.

Everything is good about these tyres except perhaps for the price - compared to a cheaper brand like Hankook etc you're looking at between $100-200 extra a set depending on your tyre size. It's up to you whether the extra cost is worth it for your circumstances, but they are certainly worth consideration if you're after a high quality tyre.

Purchased in March 2015 at JAX Tyres for $135.00.

Best tires I've ever had on my cars

published

I've had these tyres fitted to 2 previous cars & more recently my 2016 Kia Rio. I continually to choose to get these tyres fb or the reasons listed below:

*They have excellent grip, even in torrential rain
*They're super quiet (can barely hear tyre noise even on rough roads)
*They make the cars' ride smoother/more comfy
*They braking performance is phenomenal.
*Steering feels more direct
* They last a really long time

The Michelin XM2's are an expensive tyre compared to others on the market, but they're also so much safer than the dodgy Chinese budget tyres out there.
If you'll be needing new tyres soon, put away a few extra $$ a week & get the XM2's. You won't regret it.

Worse tyres XM2

published

I got 4 tyres on my Mazda 2 2006 and it's been the worse tyres I have driven on in my life.
I don't think Bob Jane T Mart did the wheel alignment and it feels like one they tyres aren't balanced feels like it going to roll off the rim.

The front tyres aren't to bad little slow at just a silt second response. Braking has improved heaps smoother braking and better response .

I have brought Michelin tyres before and loved them not theses ones.

Best Tyres I've Owned

published

My Nissan had Bridgestone Ecopia 150's fitted when new, I got 45,000kms out of them before I replaced them with the Michelin XM2's.

What can I say the difference was noticeable, they are smoother, quieter, much softer ride and the steering seems to have the right amount of feedback now, which was lacking with the Ecopia's, something I blamed the Nissan for.

They look to have tons of tread something the Ecopia's didn't have, will have to see how many kms I can get out of them but at the moment I am loving these new tyres.

A great Tyre

published

Purcdhased these from Bob Jane. They were a little more expensive than I wanted to pay but I am so please that I did. They grip well in the wet and do not feel any tyre roll while sharp cornering. I have about about 42,000 ks on them and they are just starting to show some wear.

excellent tyres

published

Only just bought these tyres and have already noticed a huge diff compared to the previous tyres. Much more comfortable on the road, less road noise and very grippy . Will be interesting to see if it makes a diff to the petrol consumption .Will do another review of these tyres after my road trip to hervey bay .

Good tyre.. Never had an issue..

published

I drive around 60000 kms an year and have been using this for last 2 years. Great tyre. Never had a puncture or any issue.Offers good wear resistance as well.
My previous tyre used to slip and slide a lot, especially when moving from standstill. No more problems now.
Love these.

Hard-wearing and reliable

published

I have always used these tyres on my cars as they offer outstanding performance while giving excellent grip. I use the tyres all year round and find they are good no matter the weather. I would go as far to say that they stick to the road surface like treacle to a blanket! I always monitor my cars fuel consumption and believe that these tyres help toward a satisfying number. I only do around 5000-6000 miles a year so my tyres last me a good few years. I would estimate I get around 14,000 to 18,000 miles out of a set. Admittedly they are not cheap, but one should never compromise on safety.

After 3 months, very happy with their performance.

published

I've had these tyres for a couple of months now and have already noticed improved fuel efficiency. They handle very well in wet, slippery conditions and the car feels very safe since I've had them (there is a definite 'grip' to the road that I didn't notice with my last tyres). I bought a set of 4 while there was a promotion and feel they are a very good investment.

No more sliding

published

I reviewed several tyres before choosing Michelin. My Toyota was nearly always 'sliding' around corners, I needed to go painfully slowly, especially when it was wet. The spare was the original Michelin tyre (according to the guy at Bob Jane) and still in good condition. I bought four new Michelins and they still look like new. My car handles so much better and I feel safer. The tyre pressure doesn't go done so quickly either.

The tyres are great! The price was much lower than other dealers The service fantastic and really customer oriented. I had to go back to have the wheel alignment adjusted. No hassle. They did the job with a smile. They even have a cafe and tv in the waiting area. So impressed!

Constantly get 100000 km plus out of these tyres

published

We have used these tyres on a Toyota Yaris, Toyota Prius C and Mazda.
We use our cars constantly for our business. We find that we always get more than 100000 km per set of tyres. They are also affordable to purchase.
The tyres give a fairly quiet ride.
Good consistent grip in the wet and dry.
Would not hesitate to recommend these tyres.

Wouldn't ever choose another tyre

published

Our Fiesta Econetic came with these tyres fitted. We got 100,000km out of them and they were still pretty good. The fiesta is now at 205,000km and still on that second set.

We also now have them fitted to our Subaru Forester, which we regularly use for light off road driving.

On the highway and off road, these tyres have been great. Good for fuel economy and durability. Shop around and you can get them for a really good price.

Excellent tyres for family cars

published

These tyres have lasted me the last year and a half and are still going strong. My fuel is even more efficient since using these tyres even when the psi is down a bit, my car still runs well. My car handles the road better in my opinion and I feel safer driving knowing that I have tyres that will last. Shop around for a deal on these tyres and get the right price. Make sure you get all four and the spare if you can because it is worth it to keep your family safe. Suitable for all weather conditions. Thanks.

Michelin XM2. tyres 195x60x15. 88H

published

Michelin XM 2. Had these on my 98 Ford Mondeo Sedan, top all round tyre. Very quiet when first fitted. After halfway wear, they became noisy. This set on my 05 Corolla Sedan, urban and Gympie to Brisbane, we have 78,000 up and still going. They retain the air build up on the highway longer than other tyres. Comfortable quiet ride when new.
Noisy when getting low on tread. All weather driving, no difference. A tip on any tyres, is to always drive to road and weather conditions and keep a safe distance from vehicles in front. All my tyres from Jax Tyres Maroochydore
Sunshine Coast.

Is this tyre is directional?

No, they aren't. Which means they're easily rotated.

Steve
Steve

They are Directional tyres, their construction have a tread designed to rotate in only one direction and can't be mounted in any other way. They are also called "unidirectional" tyres. Directional tyres will have an arrow with the word "rotation" on the sidewall (which these have) showing the proper rotation direction. The function of directional tyres is that they have lateral grooves in the tread that form a V-shaped tread pattern. The tread design is intended to channel water from the center of the tyre outward as the tyre rotates. That is about what directional tyres are and they can be rotated!
