MICHELIN - Energy Xm2
Why is this the right tyre for me?
*Based on external tests done by Shanghai Motor Vehicles Centre on MICHELIN Energy™ XM2, measuring dry road braking distance from 100 to 0 km/h; against 5 competitors' tyre brands in 195/65R15. November 2012
The Excellent grip in both dry and wet road conditions comes from two main technologies.
Exceptionally long tyre life
*Internal tests conducted on Indian roads. Results calculated on an average basis. Compared to a leading Indian competitor
Alternative Bridging technology
Silica Based Tread Compound
Reduces the heat generated by the friction between the rubber and the road. Thus, less energy is lost, reducing fuel consumption.

Key Features of XM2
Firm grip with the road surface which helps reduce the braking distance. ( STOPS UP TO 1.7 METERS SHORTER )
* Excellent grip in both dry and wet road conditions comes from two main technologies.
1. The tread compound is more flexible. It better adapts itself to the irregularities of the road surface (Micro-Adaptive Compound).
2. The wider grooves on the tread evacuate a greater volume of water, reducing risk of aquaplanning (Wide Tread Grooves).
* Exceptionally long tyre life - Lasts 28 % more compared to the leading competitor in India.
* Alternative Bridging Technology - Reinforces the rigidity of the tread blocks . By limiting their flexibility , it reduces the risk of rapid tyre wear , increasing tyre logevity.
* Low rolling resistance contributes to fuel savings - 22% reduction in rolling resistance when compared to the leading competitor in India.
* Silica based tread compound - Reduces the heat generated by the friction between the rubber and the road. Thus, less energy is lost, reducing fuel consumption.
