How many miles did you get from your Michelin Energy Savers tires and What tire pressure did you use?  I have gone through 3 sets with total mileage of 213k miles.  Michelin Energy Savers AS are warrantied for 55k miles and at 50 psi I got 64.5k and 64k miles out of my first two sets which weren't worn down to the 2/32", I replaced them because I was going on long trips in snowy conditions and wanted max tread.  My third set I replaced the fronts at 78k because of puncture in sidewall. They could gone probably 3k more miles anyways. The rears I moved to the front and they currently have 85k miles and looks like they will make 90k mile unless I have to go on trip in snowy conditions. smile.png

15k miles later after replacing the fronts with sidewall hole, moving the rears to the front, new one's the rear and 95k miles on my front Michelin's using 50 psi, they still have 4/32" tread on outside, 3/32" tread on center and inside. Anyone else getting that kind of tread wear? Just another example of the advantages of using 50 psi in Michelin ES tires. BTW I had a panic stop yesterday when someone tried turning in front of me. I slammed on the brakes and turned right to avoid hitting them.  Anything that was loose came flying to the front of the car. Tires and brakes worked great!smile.png

If anyone is interested, I've documented my success on here with the OEM Michelin tires. 75-80k, IIRC. And, it was not necessary to overinflate to that extent. Yes, I tried it briefly, and the car lost stability, and seemed inherently less safe to me. I do not recommend following ptjones' advice regarding overinflation.

Yes, we got around 75k on our factory Michelin tires.  Very pleased with that.  Lovely bride's car, so never overinflated as I don't want her to die.

 

Moved on to stickier tires to better meet our needs.  But, not a darn thing wrong with the factory shoes at factory inflation.

I'm on my second set of Michelin Energy Savers. Replaced the first set around 47,000 miles because of Minnesota winter driving conditions (need healthy tread). Typically inflate 2-3 pounds above door sticker because day vs night temperatures vary a lot in Minnesota. In Florida (warm and flat) trip computer is consistently between 50-55 per tank with mixed driving. A lot of parkway driving where speed limit is 45 MPH. MPG would be less at highway speeds.

 

And no, I will not endanger myself or my wife by inflating to 50 PSI.

Because you under inflated your tires they lasted 10k miles less than mine so with tires costing $800 it cost you $100 more than mine plus $43 in extra gas for the loss in MPG's.  Tire Manufacture recommends using tire pressure that gives you even tire wear for maximum range. As you can see I'm getting even as shown in post#2.  BTW tires are more stable at higher pressures, because it takes out some sidewall flex, the cause for instability. I like responsive steering, less spongy felling when you are changing directions.

I've got about 27000 on the OEM tread since 8/31/16.  I use TireRack rims and OEM tires in non-Winter months ... causing the low mileage so far.  I do over-inflate to 40PSI cold and check once a month - more if the TPMS screen varies a lot.  BTW that screen is only an approximation but it''s close enough for me.

 

I have a Slime compressor in the car that runs off the 12V socket.  That's my inflation source when needed.  It has auto shutoff so I set the PSI to 40 and let it go.  Very good investment if you watch your tires and pressure.

Uh, yeah. I forgot you're the resident expert here... I under inflated my tires? Your recommendations regarding tire pressure are out of line and irresponsible. You're recommending a pressure 40% higher than the car manufacturer. Come on man, give it up.
