    am now taking extra precaution & told my wife that regardless of safety ABC's present in a vehicle (i.e. ABS, ESC, EBD, TCS, etc), they will only work if there is contact between the tire & the road.

    tnx niky, appreciate it..
    Can't have everything. Energy-conserving tires tend to be that way. I bought a set of Michelin energy-conserving tires for our delivery vehicle, and the first thing I noticed was the poor braking and low grip limits.

    That's why the new Prii (Priuses, whatever... ) don't run on the low-rolling resistance rubber the first-gens did... customers complained about the lack of handling stability.

    As long as you're careful, though, they shouldn't be a problem.

    Ang pagbalik ng comeback...

    Just sharing my observation of Michelin Energy MX1 energy conserving tire. Size is 215/65R15. Inflated with nitrogen. Used for around 500 kms 80% highway and 20% city driving.

    Very quiet tires compared to my previous Dunlops.

    Ride is decent. Did not notice any difference from my old tires. Maybe its a bit better but nothing definitive.

    Grip and handling is adaquate. Nothing spectacular. However. I find that my old tires was more sure footed. Hopefully it will get better as it wears a bit. Have not noticed the slipperiness mentioned by Niky and slamtaz. Hope I dont get into a situation where it will crop up.

    It seems to save gas. My usual route normally uses up 10 liters of gas. My best is 8 liters but that was no traffic and really good boy drivng. 80kmh tops. This afternoon I used 8.8 liters of gas, but I did a speed run of 175 kmh at star toll way.

    Will continue to observe.

    You can try going one size smaller if you want to save a bit. 30x9.5R15's

    Savero is a good, inexpensive tire.

    Na-try ko na mga budget at mas mahal na tyres pero can't tell the difference between them in terms of handling and grip. Pansin ko lang yong mga mamahaling tyres medyo nagtatagal maubos at syempre mas lagay ang loob lalo na pag nasa highway at mabilis ang takbo na di agad basta basta sasabog.

    Try bridgestone or yokohama. Both are supposed to be good tires. Price should be between 3000 to 4000 each. My last canvass, Yoko C drive 215/65R15 was 3200 each. It was out of stock so got Michelin for 4200 each.
