Michelin Philippines just launched its newest iteration of the Energy XM2 tires line. It’s called the Michelin Energy XM2+, and it’s pegged as having an improved stopping power and durability, especially when worn out. This, in turn, provides users with longer-lasting tire life and added assurance of safety on the road.
The secret of the Energy XM2+ is its new and improved full-silica rubber compound which was put to the test in all sorts of extreme road and weather conditions in Thailand. This new formula exhibited impressive performance figures on wet road surfaces vs. other tire makes and models.
When fresh off the shelf, the Energy XM2+ was rated as having a wet surface stopping power that’s 1.5 meters shorter than its competitors. This is notable in and of itself, but what’s more noteworthy is its stopping power when its treads are worn out close to depletion. As per test results, the worn-out Energy XM2+ exhibited a braking power that’s 2.6 meters shorter than its rivals.
