A tyre for tough roads
The new Michelin Energy™ XM2 tyres get a big thumbs-up for safety and affordability.
In a country like South Africa, where traffic is heavy, road conditions can be difficult and distances are far, we need high-technology tyres that can cope with these tests. However, while we’re very aware that good tyres play an important role in safety on the road, most of us are also on the lookout for more affordable tyres.
The good news is that Michelin has just launched a brand new type of tyre: the Michelin Energy™ XM2, which delivers the highest level of safety for the lowest total cost.
The tyres guarantee safety by reducing the risk of a blowout and losing control of your vehicle. The new Michelin Energy™ XM2 delivers several other benefits at the same time:
- Increased resistance to road hazards
- Increased grip in both wet and dry conditions
- Reduced fuel consumption
- Tyres last longer
These tyres have been purpose-designed for city cars, hatchbacks compacts and sedans – and for motorists who are concerned not just about their own personal safety, but also that of their passengers and people outside the vehicle.
The key to their improved safety lies in their robustness. Special technology enhances the tyre’s sidewalls to deliver excellent resistance to road surface irregularities. Inspired by nature, and in particular by bamboo, which can bend without breaking, Michelin’s IRONFlex technology was created to offer solidity and elasticity, strength and flexibility.
The technology also improves the tyre’s grip, making braking distance shorter. And, because the tyres are stronger, they last longer, leading to savings in the long term.
There’s an added bonus too. When you buy two or more new Michelin Energy™ XM2 tyres, you receive three free unique benefits:
- A pothole guarantee
- A mileage guarantee
- 24-hour roadside assistance
What woman can afford to drive without these fabulous tyres?
