SAFETY DRIVING

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.

Your safety also depends on you.

You took time to choose your car.
Taking time to choose your tyre is just as important.

 

We can all recall stressful situations where our tyres made the difference:

think of that bike that came from nowhere

 

 

that driver in front of you suddenly braking,
that dog crossing the street (small illustration),

 

this difficult journey under a wall of rain.



Your safety does not just depend on the way that you or others are driving.

It depends equally on your choice of tyres.
For your peace of mind (and your family’s...), take the time to choose well!

But how do I choose the right tyre?

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

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.

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)

Enjoy the ride

Like a shoe, a tyre needs
to fit you perfectly.
1. Take any car
2. Try a different set of tyres
You end up with an entirely different driving experience. So, do you like a comfortable drive or precision handling to take that corner like a pro? Make sure that your tyre reflects your style.

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.
