Speed Rating
Load Index
Load Range


Safety Rating is a combination of two values: Load Index and Speed Rating for P-Metric and Euro Metric tire sizes; and Load Range and Speed Rating in the case of heavy duty LT (light truck) sizes.

Speed Rating is based on the speed that the tire is designed to be driven at for extended periods of time. All tires in the in the U.S. are designed to maintain legal U.S. speed limits. The speed rating of tires must match the maximum driving speed of the vehicle.

Load Index is used on P metric and Euro Metric sized tires and denotes a tire's load-carrying capacity at a specified inflation pressure. The load index is represented by a number, the higher the Load Index Value the greater the load the tire can safely carry. Vehicle manufacturers recommend a maximum load capacity based on a recommended minimum load index.

Tire Class


Tire Class reflects how the tire will be used. There are four major categories: All-Season, Max Performance, Summer-Only and Winter-Use.

All-Season tires are suitable for year-round driving in all weather conditions.

Summer-Only & Max Performance tires are specifically designed for high-performance driving. Tire compound, tread design and speed ratings all combine to hug the road and maintain grip. Summer tires by nature are not ideal for winter driving due to lack of siding to grip winter roads.

Winter-Use tires have tread compounds and patterns that are specially designed for grip on snowy or icy road surfaces. They are not suitable for year-round use. The rubber compound used will wear more quickly on dry, summer roads. It is recommended that winter tires are fitted as a complete set to avoid potential handling issues.

Tread Type


Tread Type is an important consideration when choosing a tire. There are four main types: Passenger, Highway, All-Terrain and Mud-Terrain.

Passenger denotes a tread that is suitable for normal use, a good all-round tread for normal driving.

Highway is a tread type unique to SUV and truck tires. The tread is optimized for normal everyday driving on paved surfaces. These tires can be driven off pavement, but are not ideally suited for off road traction. Highway tread patterns deliver a quiet ride.

For light trucks and specialty vehicles, All-Terrain tread types provide better off-road traction than standard highway truck tires. There more aggressive tread tends to be less quiet on paved roads. All Terrain tires are suitable for everyday use.

Mud-Terrain treads are specifically designed with wider tread blocks and higher void ratios to gain traction in off-road conditions. Mud Terrain tires can generate higher noise levels and tend to carry lower mileage warranties than other tread designs.

UTQG - Uniform Tire Quality Grade

UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grade) is made up of three values: treadwear, traction and temperature.

Treadwear is a relative numeric score, based on manufacturer tests, showing how well a tire can be expected to wear compared to other tires. A higher score means a tire could be expected to wear better.

Traction measures the tire's ability to stop a vehicle on wet roads. It doesn't reflect a tire's acceleration, cornering, or hydroplaning performance. Traction grades range from AA (highest) to C (lowest).

Temperature grades the tire's ability to withstand heat build-up, with A being the highest grade and C the lowest.

A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 to 115 mph
C - Between 85 to 100 mph
Treadwear: 400
Traction Asphalt - gForce
AA - Above 0.54
A - Above 0.47
B - Above 0.38
C - Less Than 0.38
A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 and 115 mph
C - Between 85 and 100 mph

Drive / Ride Performance Characteristics

All tires have the following six performance characteristics, divided into three sets of trade-offs. In most cases, a tire may perform excellently in one characteristic but only standard in the other.
Standard Ride Comfort & Standard Handling
Handling: Get stiff side wall for precise steering and cornering but settle for a firm ride with increased road noise.
Ride Comfort: Enjoy a quiet, smooth ride but lose some cornering ability.
Standard Treadwear & Standard Traction
Traction: Stop faster in wet conditions but expect a shorter tread life.
Treadwear: Get long, uniform wear across your tread pattern but expect less traction in wet conditions.
Standard Low Rolling Resistance & Standard High Speed Performance
High-Speed Performance: Get increased performance at higher speeds but sacrifice some fuel economy.
Low Rolling Resistance: Enjoy improved fuel efficiency but expect less high-speed cornering ability.


Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 566 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor Treadwear These came on my 2013 Ford C-Max. The tire is quiet and the ride quality is fine. But, the tires have 31K miles and are evenly worn out. I expect a lot more from a Michelin tire. I am looking at other manufacturers for my replacement tires. October 19, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a Great tire. At 106,000 we are replacing this tire with hopefully the same tire. Very pleased with mileage and control in rain & snow and specially when driving through deep water at high speed. (little to no pull) Sometimes a tire that is stock to a new car is difficult to replace with the same exact tire. I have not had to test the full braking ability of this tire and trust this tire to act in a manner of its design as experienced in all other specification of handing and performance. In closing for context purposes, this is the only tire review I have written and just happened upon this review in the search of this great tire. October 11, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by poor wear 37,000 mil OE tires Ride, traction and handling are "OK". We drive conservatively. We need to replace the tires already. Got very good gas mileage but tire mileage is not good at all. Need to see what other brands are recommended. September 21, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tire I have 75,000 miles on them and they look like they could go another 20,000! July 28, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCELLENT WEAR Mich Energy Savers came on a Chrysler 300 we purchased new. The majority of mileage was on mountain roads and then a lot of interstate driving. We had over 87,000 miles and just getting to the wear bars. Great ride, great wet rode handling and a smooth ride. We won't try another tire! July 22, 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Blowout I had a blowout this morning while driving on the expressway. This tire only has ~23,000 miles on it with no damage at all. I'm extremely concerned for the safety of my children given that I had the tire inspected by michelin's approved service location and they found no reason why it blew. April 11, 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Poor Wear - Stay Away I purchased a 2013 Buick Regal in February of 2013. It came with Michelins and I got 55,903 miles on the orginal set. I put a set of the Energy Saver A/S (235/50R17 96H) on in November of 2014. I now have 95,000 and the tires are wearing to the point they need replaced. The tires have been rotated at every oil change by the Buick Dealer which I purchased the car. I have been putting Michelins on all my vehicles for several years and have been very satisfied with the ride and performance till now. This may be the last set of Michelins that I ever purchase.
