The Michelin Energy Saver Plus 235/50 R17 96 H is a premium touring summer tire made primarily for city cars, MPVs and family cars. An enhanced version of the Energy Saver, the Michelin Energy Saver Plus 235/50 R17 96 H is the 5th generation of low-rolling resistance tires manufactured by Michelin. With an optimised profile that features an asymmetric tread pattern with textured sipes, the Michelin Energy Saver Plus 235/50 R17 96 H offers a better contact with the road and has an excellent grip in both wet and dry conditions. The tread also allows for excellent and stable braking and traction control. The tire also uses Michelin's Eco N Grip™ technology, which uses a special tread compound that decreases heat build-up owing to its improved molecular cohesion. A special under-tread layer containing very low-resistance polymers increases the fuel efficiency of the tire, saving up to 60 litres of fuel in comparison with its predecessor, the Energy Saver.
