New Rubber Compounds
- New formulation of full silica tread compound that contacts the ground in micro-scale resulting in better grip throughout the life of the tyre.
- New formulation of full silica tread compound that bonds stronger from filler to filler, resulting in minimized wear leading to longer mileage.

25% More Mileage
- MICHELIN ENERGY XM2+ Tyres lasts 25% longer compared to other premium tyre brands.*
* The new MICHELIN Energy XM2+ lasts longer than premium competitors by 25% . Longevity test conducted by China Automotive Technology and Research Center Co.,Ltd (CATARC) (an independent 3rd party), on Michelin's request, in September 2018 in TianJin, China, on dimension 205/55 R16 91V on Volkswagen GOLF7 comparing MICHELIN ENERGY XM2+ versus Premium Competitors (figures represent the average of 5 other premium brands).

XM2 lasted up to 115k km (6 years usage) with 2 mm residual thread depth for my Avanza.
Can XM2+ do much more than that ?

The tires will be crazy noisy by the time it almost time to change. Harder compound usually last longer also noisier.

More noice and less contact due to low rolling resistance.

Really not recommended for normal user expt grab or taxi.

I am using XM2 on one of my car. Amazing when it's new. But once pass the half way mark, it's so noisy and the grip was no where near when I was new.

Yup. Did 54k km on them and changed them. Noisy and bad chipping at the tread face.

None of them last as long as XM series and Dunlop is crap on wet roads. I drove a car with these and skidded at a highway turn off. Luckily I have Takumi godlike skills to correct the car before it rams the barrier.

Manufacturers say 10 years or 1.6 mm residual thread depth.
Other than this is just ..opinions and bias.

I also think the same. The price I can get Toyo TR1, add a tiny bit getting Potenza R030.

Was quoted yoko bluearth rm140/pc for 185/60/14, including installation, labour, rubber valve, alignment, balancing. Should be good price I think.
