Michelin Symmetry GNX Tire Review & Rating
The Symmetry GNX from Michelin offers drivers of all types of coupes, sedans, minivans and many other vehicles all-season traction and handling to go with an extremely quiet and comfortable ride.
The symmetrical tread design sports a unique tread compound and Michelin technology that gives this model enhanced comfort on the road. Stress Equilibrium Casing technology increases the contact patch and helps to lower the rolling resistance, which not only extends the overall tread life, but also helps out the environment by reducing CO2 emissions.
Road noise is virtually non-existent through the use of Variable Pitch Tread optimization and Michelin’s Compliance Cushion, which work together to deliver a much smoother and quieter tire on the highway or around town.
Wet traction and handling are enhanced with a wide serrated center groove and interlocking “S” sipes. The sipes automatically lock together when necessary to give the tire better steering control and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. It also promotes more even tread wear.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that provide added strength and durability to the GNX. These twin belts supplement a polyester cord body that provides a comfortable ride throughout the life of the tire.
Michelin gives the option of a black or white sidewall depending upon the size that you choose for your vehicle.
- Dependable all-season traction and handling
- Very comfortable and quiet riding tire
- Excellent tread life
- Heavy snow traction may be an issue to some
Michelin has built another excellent all-season tire in the Symmetry GNX. Overall all-season handling is what you would expect, and this model is one of the more quiet tires in its class. Heavy snow traction may not be as good as we like, but then again, this is not a snow tire.
