Not as good as the other tyres I had - if you drive on a lot of tight windy roads go for another bra

Great tyres

published

The tires were great and I've got them from special from costco as well. After running 10,000km on them they work perfectly fine. It breaks very well even in the wets. They were very easy to install and the looks of it suits my car very well. It's very quite on highways as well.

Great tyres

published

Best set of tyres I have ever had. Very durable and stable in the wet. The tyres have great performance and the car is comfortable to drive with these tyres as some tyres are very rough and gives you a rough ride. I would definitely buy these tyres again on this car.

Best value but low efficency

published

I changed the Michelin tire almost one year, big brand, low price from Costco.
But I think it is low efficiency compare my Goodyear one. I use more than 5% petrol for my car after changing the new Tyre, and the noise of tire is stronger than before.
Any way good value for this tire.

goood tyres

published

Purchased this tyre about few weeks ago. I can immediately feel the different as compare to my previous all tyre. Can feel a huge different from my previous old tyre. Much quieter and you can feel the softness when hitting uneven road. Very comfortable. The mechanic told me to use Michelin tyres always as compared to other brand.

5000kms later, and it's been great

published

Purchased a set for my Corolla '03 about 5000kms back, and it has been a fair improvement over the Yokohama blueearths that I had on.
It's a little early to determine tread wear, but the tyres are still looking decent. The most significant improvement has been wet weather performance pulling out of a small street onto the main road on a hill with minimal slippage. Road noise has also improved a bit.
These tyres are certainly not designed for sporty performance, but they seem to match well with your average daily commute driving style.

Wait till its on sale at Jaxtyres or the like

published

It does the job, as it says for a normal car and if you aren't going to drive recklessly. Wait till the sale cycle happens with Jaxtyres. They have them on sale on a cycle like all their other tyres so when you buy 4, the 4th one is free and the like.

So far so good

published

Have changed the Michelin Energy XM2 about 2 weeks ago. Can feel a huge different from my previous old tyre. Much quieter and you can feel the softness when hitting uneven road. Very comfortable. Many thanks to Bob Jane to beat the price of costco and gave a good service on this

Best value car tyre bar none!

published

These tyres last really well and provide excellent grip in dry and wet weather.
Not buying them is the dumbest decision you can make!
I bought mine from Bob Jane in Ringwood where you will get awesome service, a fair price and the best wheel alignment you have ever had.... I have been going there for years with 4 different vehicles from small to big.

XM2, all the way!

published

I bought these at Bob Jane Granville T-Mart NSW for $109 each and found their service terrific and the XM2 tyres excellent...quiet and assuring It doesn't get much better than this. I always insist on Michelin, my other car has Michelin Pilot Sports which are more expensive but hey are exceptional.

Excellant investment

published

Another excellent product from Michelin. These are soft and comfortable. Very good touring tyres. I have used them for approx 16,000KMs and they still look new. These seems will go on forever. I was a Bridgestone Turanza fan but this time I couldn't find the required tyre size from the brand. Based on the positive reviews, I switched to Michelin. I will stay with these for sure. Excellent investment.

Great match for my vehicle

published

What a difference tyres make that are suited to the vehicle. Good value, exceptional performance and a marked difference in handling and comfort. The manual actually suggests these tyres and they were right! Have had them on for a few months now and they just seem to get better and better. Very satisfied...

Driving with the piece of mind that I have safe tyres

published

The tyres are durable and my car feels smooth to drive and sticks to the road well. I certainly feel safe. I have also noticed that my fuel consumption is better. The team at Bob Jane T-Marts Gawler was very helpful, friendly and professional in advising the best tyre for my car.

Awesome and quiet

published

Bought this tyre after lots of research for a Suzuki Swift.

This tyre came highly recommended from a colleague. Spoke to a few local tyre shops and decided to go with Bob Jane T-Mart.

The grip of this tyre is amazing especially in the wet. It just grips wet or not.

The tyre wear so far seems great but they've only been on for two months.

I havent really noticed an improvement in fuel consumption but that is most likely due to the tyre having been fitted to a small car.

pretty good

published

For tyres that are now made in Thailand, i was quizzical at the quality for sure. I was surprised that these were as good as the original french michelins of years ago. I have had 2 sets now averaging around 50,000km per set. I drive a lot of country roads, highways and long distances daily averaging 200km per day 5 days a week. The grip and life span is great. Not noisy whatsoever. Far superior to the Goodyear Excellence that came with the car originally.

Brilliant tyre after 4 years use

published

These tyres were fitted to my Toyota Avalon over 5 years ago, and have just needed replacement after driving 600 km per week during that time. They are quiet with low road noise and good road holding in all conditions. I have replaced them with exactly the same tyres as I am completely satisfied with them.

Good performer for the price, nothing special though

published

These were fitted to my falcon ute, where long life and value for money are more important than ultimate performance.
For this application they seem a fine tyre. The grip seems OK for a cheapish product, and there is no sign of them wearing out after 14 000 km.
The Energy XM2 is sold as having lower rolling resistance, and hence better fuel consumption, but I didn't notice any improvement. If there was a change then it was less than 1/2 L/100km.

Great tyres

published

These are by far the best quality set of tyres I have purchase. They run much quieter and smoother than my existing ones, albeit a bit pricey - $520 for a set of four. However, if price is not a consideration, I would give these 5 stars. Would buy these again.

Very pleased with my purchase.

published

I was a bit hesitant buying these because of the price, but man, they are worth it! These perform amazing on both wet and dry conditions. The biggest thing I noticed was how quiet these run on my Mazda 3. A lot of people recommended the Toyo tyres, but these worked just as well. Acceleration has improved especially when going uphill. Buy these, you won't regret it.

Had these - Never Replaced!

published

Lasted forever... You don't get a long lasting type that will be silent on the road, but these were about as good as they come!!! Highly recommended. Would repurchase. Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for. Always found then reliable in all normal Sydney conditions. Shop around for a good price!

Handling surpass expectations for an "Eco" tyre

published

Brought a set for my mothers Honda Civic. Having good experience with Michelin Pilot Sports. Thought I'd give their Energy tyres a try. She raved how well they handle in the wet and makes those drives stress free. Thought she was exaggerating, but after experiencing it myself. I was pleasantly surprised. Have put just over 40000 KM on them with close commutes. Tyres still have plenty of tread life left.

Only negative was didn't notice any major fuel improvements.

Excellent quality & value for money

published

I purchased these tyres as a replacement to my VS commodore to replace the original xm1. These tyres a huge improvement over the xm1 with quieter road noise insulation, smoother ride, and greater towing tolerances. Overall evaluation is: excellent value, great grip in wet and dry, smooth ride, and long lasting. Highly recommended.
