    Hi folks,
    Today I had a closer look at the info on the tyres of my Oz Prius.
    This is what I found:

    Michelin Energy tyre
    195/60 R15 88V-XVI
    Green X
    Treadwear: 240
    Traction: A
    Temperature: A
    Max. Pressure: 51 PSI
    Tread Plies: 1 Polyester + 2 Steel + 1 Polymide
    Sidewall Ply: 1 Polyester

    Not knowing what a lot of this info meant, I searched and found the following relevant sites :

    http://www.tyresave.co.uk/tyreinfo.html
    http://www.tyresave.co.uk/tyrspeed.html
    http://www.indiacar.com/infobank/tyre_markings.htm

    and the following quote on a Michelin site:

    "XSE Technology Green Xâ„¢
    Pioneered by Michelin, this breakthrough ‘green’ technology is still the standard to beat.
    A special compound that reduces rolling resistance, Green X increases fuel efficiency
    and decreases pollution, without sacrificing any performance, life or comfort. "


    I hope that is of some interest.

    Regards,
