The Energy LX4 is Michelin’s Passenger All-Season tire developed for the drivers of full-size sedans, minivans and crossover utility vehicles looking to combine fuel efficiency, ride comfort and all-season traction. Michelin Energy LX4 tires are designed to provide long wear and traction in a wide range of driving conditions including occasional light snow.
Energy LX4 tires use a long lasting all-season compound molded into a symmetric tread design featuring rounder shoulders to provide progressive, predictable cornering. Circumferential grooves and independent tread blocks enhance hydroplaning resistance and wet traction while a continuous center rib promotes highway stability and a quiet, comfortable ride.
Michelin EnergySaver Construction helps enhance vehicle fuel efficiency by requiring less effort from the engine while their Comfort Control Technology uses computer-optimized design and precision manufacturing to reduce vibrations and road noise.

Founder at Tiresout. Used to be working as an engineer at Bridgestone Tires Akron Technical Center. The responsibilities included but were not limited to technical computing, indoor & outdoor testing of new tires.
When the time came to replace it I was shocked to see it made little over 15K miles.When I had to replace rear ones I bought Michellin only to fit other two. It cost me $150-160/tire. 15K miles for that price is a joke.Now I’m replacing all 4 and will not be Michellin
Extremely noisy tire at all speeds.
Every Michelin I’ve ever had has been quiet and long lasting, and every set never giving me a flat, tire pull, leaking, or any other annoyance. I have them rotated every 5,000 miles and they last for 50,000 miles or more. This set never needed a re-balance, staying smooth after every rotation. Tire pressures are checked every month, with pressures adjusted for seasonal temperatures. This car needed a wheel alignment when I purchased it and never needed another in 45,000 miles of driving. It had a few good pothole whacks but steering stayed true. I can’t understand why the other reviews rate this tire so poorly unless the driver’s don’t know how to take care of them. Example: At a dealership I once worked for, a woman came in with 17,000 miles on a less than a year old car and wanted the tires replaced under warranty. They were trash, to say the least, with pressures down to 12-15 psi and serious alignment problems.
Michelin Energy is agreat handling tire. All Michelin tires are over priced in my opinion but they certainly are one of the best performing tires on the market. You get what you pay for. As for longevity, these Energy tires held up very well for my mostly highway driving style.
I’d like to see longer tread life. The tires go on a Lincoln Town Car and should be 80K mile tires, not 50K mile tires.
This tire came stock on my Lincoln and I currently have 50,000 miles on them, not to mention they are original since 2008. Overall traction is great, with superb ride comfort and low road noise. Winter traction is above average as well. Definitely not a snow tire, but for light to moderate conditions, they work well.After 50,000 miles the tires are done and to the wear bars. Even though their life is over, they still perform. I’m just now noticing a drop in performance. They have also started pulling a bit, but I got every penny out of these tires.Will absolutely be buying again.
This tire provided good handling and wear. The only problem was with one tire that developed a vibration at approximately 30,000 miles. The vibration would occur in the 55-60 mph range. Above or below that speed, it was not noticeable. Attempts by dealer to balance the tire was unsatisfactory. If it wasn’t for this one tire, I would have definitely considered this tire as a replacement.
