Passenger All-Season tires are for drivers who want a combination of a smooth ride, good wear and S- or T-speed rated durability along with all-season traction, including in light snow. Passenger All-Season tires branded with the M+S symbol are often used as Original Equipment (O.E.) on standard coupes, sedans and family vans, as well as some entry-level pickup, crossover and sport utility vehicles.

O.E. Passenger All-Season tires are typically purchased as direct replacements for worn-out pairs/sets of the vehicle’s original tires. They can also be used for other vehicle applications in complete sets of four or axle pairs if available in an appropriate size, load range and speed rating to match the existing O.E. tires’ performance category and specifications.

  1. The factory installed Michelin Energy Saver A self seal tires on my 2017 Bolt EV (all electric – not the Volt gas/electric hybrid) are generally very good. They hold corners very well in wet and dry conditions, and I have worked them hard on occasion. The ride is generally smooth, though the stiff suspension on my Bolt makes it hard to tell if any of the rougher ride is due to the tires. The rubber compound could be stickier, they lose traction when accelerating from a stop on wet surfaces, and the tires spin and squeal if I accelerate a bit aggressively on dry pavement. But, the Bolt has substantial torque, so it may overpower most tires’s ability to grip solidly. After 26,000 miles on Illinois’ very bad roads, the tread looks very good, and I anticipate getting around 75,000 to 80,000 out of them based on the current level of wear. I recommend them.
