  1. I have a set of these on our 2014 Ford C-Max. They are the OEM tires. I’m very pleased with them. They are wearing extremely well. At the current wear rate, I should get 60,000. I’m noticing a bit more road noise now than earlier, but it’s not obtrusive. Spec calls for 40 psi which does make the ride a little firm, but I’ve been sticking with this. Traction is very good in all conditions.

  2. These tires came with the car, already at almost 50K, I am shopping for new tires. I never felt secure with the traction. I literally lose traction on dry pavement while accelerating!!Fusion is a heavy car but I think the electric motor has so much torque and can spin.I have to add I was not expecting winter drive to be so good while the dry traction was so bad!

  3. Overall, I haven’t had any major issues with the Michelin Energy Savers. My biggest complaint is the mileage. I bought my vehicle brand new with less than 110 miles on it in 2016, and the tires were rated for 55K. They are now at near unsafe tread life at 42K. For the money ($190/tire), I don’t believe they are worth it.My other complaint the the handling on wet roads. Living in a Florida climate, the summer has it’s share of rainy weather. I must say that I did not have much confidence driving with these tires on the Intestate in wet conditions. Anything over 45 mph, and the vehicle would be ready to hydroplane. Dry conditions were alright, and I can’t say anything for handling in the snow.I’ve now switched to Continental’s True Contact tires thanks to all the research on TireRack. We’ll see how those hold up and perform in comparison.

  4. These came on my 2016 Volt. Being that they were an eco tire I accepted the fact that they road firm, cornered poorly and spun INCREDIBLY easily from a stop. Being that they were a hard eco tire I assumed these were trade offs for good mileage and long tread life. I was wrong about the latter. They were rotated every 10kmi and with 30kmi I have 3/32 on the front and 4/32 on the rears. Now I have to replace the front tires as my lease is coming to an end and they need to be 4/32 to be acceptable. Luckily I’m savvy enough to find a pair of used tires to throw on.

  5. These tires came stock on my Ford CMax Energi. Even though I have this econobox, I drive in a “spirited” manner a lot of the time. Over almost 55K miles I have found these tires to be stable, quiet and comfortable, but to have less than acceptable wet and dry traction (have no snow or ice experience). They are also incredible “squeal-y” when you are on smooth concrete, like in a parking garage, almost to the point of embarrassment. They probably have another 10K miles of life in them, but I am having them all replaced now that one got a bad puncture. I’m going for a tire with more traction and will give up some wear resistance.

  6. So this tire really surprised me. I think I’m qualified to evaluate tires because: 1) I’m an old codger of 72 who’s been around a long time, 2) had almost every brand of tire, 3) worked 35 years at a technical college where I was around cars a lot, and 4) been a “car guy” my whole life. In my mid to late 50’s I stumbled onto Michelins – never having seriously considered them due to higher costs. Plus, they used to use a very hard rubber to build very high-mileage tires and these were literally skates on ice – scary! But sometime in the 90’s they reformulated the rubber , made them softer, quieter, and greatly improved winter traction. So – I had several sets of Primacy MXV4’s – which were wonderful tires – soft riding, quiet, stable, great traction in dry, wet, winter, AND long wearing. Some years back I was told that Michelin was “phasing them out” and replacing them with the Premiers – which were touted to be an even better tire, but I never owned a set. Interestingly – a couple of years later I saw that the Primacy was still being sold, in fact it looks like it’s even going stronger in marketing and sales! To cut to the chase, I stopped driving Lexus’s (another story) and bought a Honda Accord EX-L Hybrid that came with these Energy A/S 94V tires. I figured they would be your typical cheap OEM tires that would wear out at 45,000 miles. How wrong! These are quality built tires. They are equal in every respect to the old Primacys. I have 55K on them and I think they’re good for another 20K – amazing! Note: I rated this tire all 8’s except gave it 10’s in ride, noise, and mileage. In my mind all tires live in a world of compromises, you give up something to gain something else. So a tire with all 8’s and a few 10’s is a real winner! As far as price, I’ve learned through experience that a few dollars more is well worth it – plus I know with Michelins I’m getting a safe tire, a tire that doesn’t blow out on a pot hole, have separation issues, or balance issues!

  7. Very unimpressed. These tires slip in the dry, wet, cold, hot, ice, everything. The tires can’t hold tire pressure, heat up dramatically during driving, and are incredibly noisy on all road surfaces. I still have at least 20k miles of tread left on these tires, and am considering changing just due to safety. I’m a huge fan of Michelin tires, especially the Defenders, but the Energy Savers are poor at best.

  8. Tires were OEM that FORD put on the new 2016 Escape I purchased. They lasted 94,000 miles, quite impressive. Replacing them because of multiple punctures (nails and such). As the tread wore down the ability to not handle water became evident. Also, they became noisy at the end. But, I never had a tire last this long. Replacing with Defenders since I intend to keep the car and continue to drive highway miles.

  9. We have 23,000 miles on our leased 2016 C-Max Energi with 5 months left on our lease. The tires are worn evenly across and all are at 2/23 to 3/32″. This is our second C-Max. Our 2014 Hybrid also needed tires at 25,000 miles. We replaced the 2014 tires with an other brand and they have about 50,000 miles and still look good. Michelin has agreed to take 60% off a replacement set for our 2016. That still leaves the cost of mounting and balancing. We are really surprised since we have had very good wear on Michelins in the past.

  10. These types were stock when I purchased my new vehicle. I live in Nashville Tennessee and we have a humid climate during the summers with rain showers and an occasional gully washer. Since I’ve owned the car, we have had some pretty significant rain showers and driving Iin these showers has been a challenge. The tires do fairly well on wet roads, but if you hit any type of ponding, no matter how deep, the tires hyroplane and pull. I do not trust these almost new tires with my safety in the rain. The tires, with their short sidewall are very responsive, but in the same note, with the short sidewall you really feel the bumps in the road. I am only hoping that I can save enough money to swap the tires out before winter gets here and we get some of our usually lite snow and ice. After reading and studying all the excellent comparisons that tirerack has done, I’m going to go for the Yokohama brand tires. I have them all picked out, just gotta figure out the cash flow. I am just not willing to trust this tire and it’s lack of water cutting ability to my safety or my new car’s safety. Thank you tirerack for your unbiased tire evaluations.

  11. I like these tires, but they wear out too soon. Ride seems to be smooth and sure footed on dry roads. Icy, wet roads are less sure footed. Easily lose traction when turning on icy roads. Tread wear is terrible, I will be replacing these soon. Factory tires should last more than 36,000 miles.

  12. Michelin Energy Saver a/s tires came On my Ford Fusion. I really enjoy the ride comfort, quiet ride, and very good handling. The Fusion handles great, and these tires compliment this car. I have had no traction issues on dry or wet roads. I expect these tires will be fair in the snow. With 7,500 miles on them they look brand new. I pay attention to tire pressure and rotation to keep the wear balanced. I recommend these tires to my friends.

  13. This is the tire for the Prius. Just passed 90000 and they could keep going but not with winter coming. Will be ordering from TR soon, my fourth set schedule of these tires. Excellent mileage – I average 57 in the summer and 52 in the winter.

  14. Downright dangerous in cold, wet, snowy or icy conditions. Worst winter traction of almost any tire I’ve experienced. Even the dry traction isn’t very good, I’ve gotten into abs under moderate braking. I use these for my summer tires only now and when they wear out I will look for something else. Funnily, I bought the Michelin X Ice tires for winter and they’re excellent, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

  15. Perfectly fine tire for most driving, and it seems like they’ll last forever. They came factory installed on my 2016 Ford Fusion. However, if you live anywhere with any amount of snow or ice, I would NOT recommend these. Very dangerous in even the smallest amount of snow on the roads. Certainly not all season.

  16. Michelin energy savers AS came factory installed on new 2016 Camry. All 4 tires are at 3/32 to 4/32 after 30,000 mi. easy-going driving. Tires slip on wet level roads and skid when climbing a slight grade from stopped (a stop sign). Tires were rotated every 5000 mi. I learned that tires are now unsafe when shops refused to rotate them. My new tires are Yokohama AVID ASCEND GT’s. Wet traction is much improved and the new tires are noticeably quieter.I noticed occasional slipping even when they were new but attributed it to oily wet pavement since I didn’t think new Michelins could be at fault. Keep a watchful eye if these tires came factory installed on your new vehicle. I wouldn’t buy them for replacement tires.

  17. These were stock on my Burb, and try as I might to dislike them, they are really pretty decent tires. I have had Defender LTX and Premier LTX before on my avalanche – with these being more like the premiers. Very smooth and quiet on hwy, and decent in the rain. More of a rounded shoulder for less steering jerkiness. Tried some aggressive ATs for a bit, but MPGs dropped by 4, and noise and vibration killed it for me, so I returned and put these back on. No snow this year in DFW, so I can’t say how they fair there…

  18. We caught a nail in the right rear tire of my Chrysler mini van. It was right on the shoulder and could not be repaired. I was worried that getting one new tire with the others having 20k miles on them might cause some issues. But, I didn’t notice anything and all is well. Tires perform well.

  19. I’m the kind of driver easily do 50s mpg on Accord Hybrid. Yet I hate these tires for their horrific wet traction. I guess I don’t need to try the snow traction if there is any.They would easily lose traction and scream at any intersection if I try to take off from a complete stop. That’s below what I would expect out from Michelin, since these tires are so expensive.Some might argue ‘they are designed for low-rolling resistance’. This is not an excuse for below-average traction.

  20. Very unhappy with this stock tire’s treadwear. Overall, handling and lack of noise are great. However, at nearly $200 per tire, an attractive ‘6-year, 65k mile warranty’, you would expect these to last longer than 37,000 miles. I change oil and rotate tires religiously and am a non-aggressive driver at my age. I just checked all 4 tires – all measure between 2/32″ and 3/32″ of tread left. Note: the UTQG rating of 480 is awful for a $200 tire. Don’t buy or be fooled – do your research. This one is a non-winner and there are far better choices. Just because it’s a Michelin, doesn’t mean it’s a good buy.

  21. Most drive on highways for work where I put on average 1,000 miles/week. Lasted almost 70,000 miles but noticed in the last 5,000 miles wear and instability while driving during heavy rain. Good tires but trying something different that was recommended to get a different feel.

  22. Been in the Auto Industry with Ford for 38 years and driven just about every brand of major tire manufacturers on varying model vehicles.While Michelin produces some excellent tires, I blame Ford for choosing these horrific tires. Don’t know what they think they can extract for better gas mileage for a hybrid vehicle….Nothing should surpass performance and driving safety and these Tires DO NOT meet any of these criteria.

  23. Equipped stock in 2018 Silverado 3500HD dually. Not very impressive to look at but quiet ride. Handles rated loads with ease and tread wears excellent with an 8000 lb truck on top. I rotate according to OE recommendation. Freeway driving at 80 MPH is quiet, smooth, and predictable.Recently had to buy a single tire to replace a damaged front tire.
