As the UK experienced the wettest summer on record (hopefully this has passed us by now!), Michelin has highlighted market-leading wet grip has been a key factor in tyre development for years before the introduction of the new tyre labelling.

The majority of Michelin’s summer tyre ranges marketed since 2010 have reportedly achieved the top A rating in wet grip, the safety-related parameter.

And all 15in and 16in sizes in the Michelin Energy Saver + range, which will be launched this summer, have been classed A in wet grip. The 14in tyres are reported to generally have a B rating.

The Michelin Primacy 3 range has been rated A in wet grip. The Michelin Pilot Super Sport and Pilot Sport 3 ranges have been classed A in wet grip.

Also scheduled for launch this summer, the new Michelin Agilis + range is said to demonstrates “an excellent performance balance” with a B rating in wet grip, a very good fuel efficiency rating of C, two waves in exterior rolling noise and the range’s excellent damage resistance and total mileage.

Michelin has also confirmed its strategy remains focused on “designing and manufacturing tyres that combine safety in a variety driving conditions (on dry and wet roads, and on straights as well as in corners), improved fuel efficiency and high total mileage, whose impact on the total cost of owning a car makes it a key consumer concern, yet one that is not reflected in the new regulation.”
