Michelin ENERGY SAVER 205/55 R16 91 H
Michelin ENERGY SAVER tyres belong to the generation of environmentally-friendly "green" tyres. Innovative technology ensures much lower rolling resistance and, as a result, reduced fuel consumption. This is thanks to the partial replacement of soot with silica. The necessary safety levels are provided thanks to the Durable Security Compound (DSC), an entirely new tread component that does not contain highly aromatic oils. This innovative compound allows for optimal braking thanks to stabilisation of the tread rigidity.
Information about the manufacturer:
The Michelin group was founded in 1889 by two Frenchmen - Edouard and André Michelin. A long history and the use of innovative technology means that Michelin is now one of the world's largest tyre manufacturers. The French group has won F1, WRC and GP Moto world titles. Michelin is also a majority shareholder in brands such as: Riken, Taurus, Siamtyre, Tigar, Euromaster, Warrior, Kormoran, Recamic, Kleber and BFGoodrich.
Tyre Michelin ENERGY SAVER in size 205/55 R16 91 H, according to manufacturer's information, it has the following driveability parameters:
Fuel efficiency (rolling resistance)
Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale.
A class (green) stands for the best fuel efficiency rating (=the lowest rolling resistance).
G class (red) marks the worst fuel efficiency rating (= the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and fume emission, therefore the lower the resistance, the lower fuel consumption and exhaust fume emission is.
Wet grip is the tyre’s ability to adhere to the road in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on one aspect of wet grip – wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G:
A class stands for the best braking performance, whereas G class stands for the worst braking performance. It is one of the crucial parameters which influence the road safety.
Tyres contribute to the level of external noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a low noise level rating will lower the influence of your driving on the surrounding environment.
