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). Longevity test run in average real usage with 20,000 km run and estimated longevity at the depth of Tread Wear Indicator.

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.

How long can XM2+ last? How long did XM2 last previously?

Usually UHP tyre last roughly 2~2.5 years. Some even shorter

It depends on the driver's needs.

I vote on better grip, handling & safety

Wow.. all the while we're told it's 5 years but if I had Continental tires, I would try to see how long it would last.

Since my wife Rio came with CSC5, I think I would try to go for 10 years. The car has only done 13K and tires still look great. I was considering to change since tires were manufactured in 2014. Now I can be assured.

Any idea if the new material is of lower (manufacturing) cost with reduced tyre life, or otherwise ?

My tire size is 185 R60 15, today I just changed 2 x XM2 tyre as due to no stock for XM2+,
RM215 per pcs, free balancing, how come there is no discount for old stock even I ask them for many times?

This is Micheline dealer in Penang.

Thanks.
More grip and quieter would likely mean softer rubber material leading to shorter tyre life in relation to harder XM2.
At similar price levels I would give it a miss as I don't see having problem with so called XM2 noise.

Finally put the xm2+ (175/65/R15) on my car. Same tread pattern. Was thinking of upgrade to the primacy 4 (195/60/R15) but the xm2 arrived just on time. Their price is almost same for the same tyre figures.

After 500km done, the new Xm2+ Much for silent than xm2. Because they shared the same compound with primacy4 (as well as the silence feel) and could be as silent as primacy4. Tested on the most noisy flyover that I have to take it almost everyday(few km). Before this I can’t hear the lower volume music when I on that flyover (really noisy) Now it can hear it clearly.

And the most beautiful part is.... My car readings have 2.5km/L more compare to previous tyres. 13.5Km/L become 16km/L

As for performance don’t compare with the premium sport tyres as its not gonna performs as good as ps4 ps3 or any other thinker sidewall tyres, so xm2+ are relatively weak at super fast corner, mine is 65 profile. But It still can drive quite aggressively even on the wet and brake very well. I think it’s gonna be good with 55 profiles.

The other day I hit a big holes (on both passenger side front and back tyres) the round big one without the steel cover!!! I thought my tyres with stuck in the holes!!!! Guess what? And surprisingly no issue even with the rim. This tyre can absorbs super harsh road conditions!!

Plan to change to Michelin XM2 Plus soon as well, from Proton's stock Silverstone sweat.gif ; but the price right now seems a little high, so may wait for another couple of months.

Thanks for the review.

Oops , yes mine is XM2 .
Someone here quoted sources saying XM2+ is said to be quieter than XM2 , so I would speculate its rubber compound is softer with shorter tyre life .
Maybe someone can enlighten us XM2+ wear index ??

Just changed to XM2+ 185/60/R15. Threadwear 420.
Initial impression it's superb quiet, much quieter than another "green eco saving" tyre.

Based on my past experience, when changing 4 tyres at 1 go, this shop usually quote the price inclusive of balancing, alignment & new rubber valve for each new tyre.

However, my car didn't need alignment this time after test drive. Partly because last balancing & alignment was done not long ago (less than 1k km), and I use back my own metal valve.

I know many tyre shops use the following technic to attract customer at borderline of dishonest way:
1. Very cheap tyre with hidden cost. Cut our throat at balancing / alignment / etc.
2. Must adjust chamber or else can't do alignment properly. In most cases, this is bullshit. smile.gif

But this shop is not 1 of them, at least in my opinion for so many years. If you're really keen to change this month (since price may fluctuates monthly), I can help you to find out the nett price. You may PM me your tyre specification and other services you want to include.

nah, checked and adjusted tyre pressure immediately after the installation, maybe the previous EP150 was really that bald theres not much rolling resistance i'm not sure it sure as hell doesn't look that bad.

in fact i might go as far as saying FC improved

Without obtaining confirmation from you numerically , I would speculate car OEM manufacturer recommended 30/32(?) psi is being followed by the air 'pumper' .

At tyre manufacturer permitted psi of say, 36 - 40 the car steering simply can't be heavier , doesn't matter China or Michelin tyres .

Science suggests rolling resistance of brand new soft tyres increases relatively to your 'throw away' hardened tyres , everything else being equal .

Your statement in bold above is contrarian to science .

Edit: Am not trying to be argumentative ( with your statement in bold) , but to straighten up the wrong to the right .

that's quite alright, you learn something new everyday.

I mean my experiences are purely based on my layman understanding, the new Xm2+ definitely felt heavier than the previous ones but FC did improve.

All in all, pretty happy with it but lets see long term usage, i did have XM2s before and they were good while new but after a certain amount of time, it became very loud, lasting yes, but loud also a resounding yes lol

I see, Bridgestone ER33 used to be premium touring tyre, for those Camry, Accord luxury car.
XM2+ is actually same range with Ecopia EP300, budget economic tyre (expensive due to Michelin brand). For direct replacement of your previous ER33, it should be Primacy 4 series which also designed for luxury car.
However, i'm still amazed with the silence of this XM2+ on my Polo Sedan, it was so silent until I can hear my shock absorber working psst psst driving on 80km/h above :-)

I used Michelin XM for 4 years, first two years was more quiet and comfort with low mileage. Once it reached 20k km above, it started to get noisier and harder feeling. By the time it reached 4 years, the side wall of 4 tires were cracking a bit, though the threads are ok.

Not sure xm2 + has improved on this ?

Too early to tell as it just launched 3 months back. For now mine still quiet.

You can recheck here after next year, haha.

Just changed mine from Primact ST3 to this XM2+ at Oscar Tyre. Why XM2+? Because they don't have stock for Primacy4. Too bad though...... So decided to give XM2+ a try. My tire size is 205 55 R16. Total damage = Tire (RM259 each) + rubber plug (RM5 each) + aligment (Rm20). Use credit for tires with 2% charge. The price is really reasonble and I don't think can it else where.

It is no doubt and no fair comparison between the new XM2+ against the 5 years old ST3. XM2+ is more quieter, comfort, less bumpy after installation. Just feel that the tire should not the type very quiet tyre but acceptable level at this price range. Let see how it goes after 2~3 years usage.

that's quite alright, you learn something new everyday.

I mean my experiences are purely based on my layman understanding, the new Xm2+ definitely felt heavier than the previous ones but FC did improve.

All in all, pretty happy with it but lets see long term usage, i did have XM2s before and they were good while new but after a certain amount of time, it became very loud, lasting yes, but loud also a resounding yes lol

New tyre will definitely feel heavier than almost bald ones.

FC improved bcos any new tyre offer better grip. All tyres of same size usually give similiar FC rate.

too bad.they are famous for cheap tyre but also famous for con job and terrible service.many review said they scratch their rims,lost their lock nut etc.
so the next time i change tyre i went back to my regular place.expensive a little but get good services.fair to say,u get what u paid for,but acceptable for me.

Lately I surveyed the 185/55/R16 XM2+ at SKC Ampang Waterfront, quoted me RM212 per piece including tyre balancing.

Hi everyone,

I changed my 175/65r14 XM2 tyres to XM2+

I realize that they are doing a strange noise, seems like they are sticking to the road. Some guys said me that new tyres do it, but I have done 150KM now and they keep doing the same noise.

Did this happen to anyone else?

Nothing is more true than this. Just changed 4x pilot sport 4 205/50R16 @ RM336 excluding the rubber valves.

Things they "sold" to me
1. Your rims are dented, we can fix it
2. Your alignment is out & we couldn't fix it without a special "screw"

I refused both, & they didn't do a good alignment ( I could read from the monitor)

Conclusion: just buy the tires from them & do the fixing etc at the workshop you trust.

Their price is just too competitive compare to other.

Do other shop accept installation without buying their tyre?

Does it sound as if your tyre have a layer of glue and when moving making some weird sticky/mushy like noise? My current Primacy3ST have the same ’sticky noise’ and it’s where the same silica compound xm2+ get from. I believe it is for noise deadening as my previous set with PS3 does not have this effect and make much more road noise.

It doesn’t but well think positively, that small noise over there helped you reduced a lot of dreadful road noise. I’m okay with it😄

Thanks for mentioning about the ‘noise’, now we can confirm indeed xm2+ have been upgraded with the silica compound from its primacy siblings. Hope it means better nvh + wet grip. I’m gonna change it to my other car soon.

About it you are right lol
I had xm2 in my car and changed to xm2+. The xm2+ is so much quieter.

I realize that the noise was louder in the first km, now with 300km is more quiet. I can heard yet, but is very low now.

I have changed to xm2 + after using xm2 for almost 4 years and 80k km. Using 185/65 R15 standard size although been recommended to change to 195/55. But i prefer every thing at stock and standard. There are probably about 2 - 3 mm left at the TWI but there are chipping here and there and i think its time to change.

Cost RM180 per donut after nego from RM185. Free balancing and alignment and steel valves at TMK Rawang. Took Thailand made (week 45/19) rather than China although China ones were newer by a few weeks. China made got yellow and green lines on the thread which i was told would disappear after a few km of driving.

Looks very similar to xm2 except for a + on the side wall. Very silent and hopefully can last at least another 80k km.

I recently changed 185/55 R16 wheel from my local car workshop at RM270 including everything.

Old stock Conti Premium Contact was chipping away so dont feel good using it.

Is that the normal price since the price is on the less common size?

Had previous experience in XM2+ and XM2 at smaller wheel size. So roughly know what to expect.
