Why do Tyres Matter?

Tyres are usually taken for granted.
Until the road puts them to the test.

Why Choosing the right tyre Matters?

When it comes to safety, tyres are the most important component on your vehicle.

The brakes stop the wheels, not your car! It's actually your tyres that stop it. Let's take a closer look:

Here, rubber meets the road:

The contact area is the size of the palm of your hand.

And this all where it happens:
Braking, Traction, Handling, Steering, Comfort
On such small area, a failure at high speed could have serious consequences.

But How Do I Choose The Right Tyre?

To help you compare and choose, look at 4 different aspects:

1. Safety

Most tyres perform well in everyday situations, but difficult conditions will reveal their differences.
So how do you make sure that your tyres are ready for the unexpected?

Choose tyres that can perform well in the worst types of weather or roads that you may encounter.

And the difference can be huge:
Michelin Energy™ XM2 tyres stops 1.7 meters shorter than the leading competitors.¹

Not all tyres are equal – choosing the right ones can keep you safe.

2. Value

Making a compromise now could mean spending more later. Why? Because tyres that last longer and help you to save fuel allow you to save in the long run.

Get more efficient tyres now, replace them much later! (And forget about shopping for tyres for a while)

3. Enjoy the ride

Like a shoe, a tyre needs to fit you perfectly.

  • Take any car
  • Try a different set of tyres

You end up with an entyrely different driving experience.

So, do you like a comfortable drive or precision handling to take that corner like a pro?

Make sure your tyre reflects your style.

4. Sports Car?

A sprinter doesn’t want to run in slippers.
Neither does your car.
A sport or luxury car won’t feel like one unless the tyres can translate its power to the road.

Environmentally friendly

Rolling resistance is friction and therefore a waste of energy.
A lower rolling resistance will reduce your fuel consumption and your CO2 emissions.
Everybody wins!

All in one

Thanks to the MICHELIN Total Performance touch, you can rest assured that you get all of these in each of our tyres.
