The best in dry handling*
Inspired by the same engineering that has powered 16 consecutive victories at 24 Hours of Le Mans. Developped with prestigious car manufacturers like Porsche, BMW and Ferrari.
*The best dry handling. Tests carried out in 2010 and in 2011 by TÜV Sud on tyre sizes 245/40ZR18Y & 255/35ZR19Y, compared to its main competitors (available on the European market at the time).
Delivering a tyre that covers all your needs.
Tyres have their own personality: they need to express certain characteristics more passionately. With MICHELIN Total Performance, you gets all characteristics on top, without any compromise. All our tyres are made to cover all your need, thanks to MICHELIN Total Performance.
1. The Twaron Belt ( Grip)
The only thing holding your car to the road is an area on the tyres that’s the size of a hand. Driving at high speeds deforms the tyre, reducing this contact surface. To avoid this, Michelin Twaron Belt technology controls the tread deformation, distributing forces more evenly for greater handling and tread longevity.
2. Asymetric Tread Pattern with Dual-Compound technology (Wet and dry performances)
Specific rubber compound and larger tread on the inner shoulder to optimise grip on wet road, combined with a motorsport compound on the outer shoulder for outstanding performances in the dry.
3. Variable Contact Patch 2.0 (Precise Steering and Grip)
Increased steering responsivness by maximising the rubber in contact with the road at all time, ensuring your steering commands are transferred directly to the road for a class-leading grip and consistent straight-line performance. In other words, it ensures optimal grip in every driving situation. When cornering, the amount of rubber in contact with the road remains the same even if the shape changes.
4. Program distortion design (Precise Steering)
Using the latest digital simulation software from aeronautic and automobile industries, the tyre profile is designed to maximize the road contact area while the tread compound is formulated to reach optimimum temperature quickly. Driving precision is thus met, whatever the speed.
Standard Limited Warranty
Each and every MICHELIN tyre comes with a promise - a promise to deliver the very best. And because we have been making tyres to meticulous quality standards for more than 125 years, we back that promise. That’s why every tyre designed and manufactured by MICHELIN, is warranted by MICHELIN. Ask your dealer today about the MICHELIN 5 year warranty.
The sizes shown are average design values for tyres measured on specified measuring rim widths. Some tyres may vary from this value by +/-3% of the section height (affecting overall diameter), and +/-4% of the section width. Section width varies approximately 0.2" (5mm) for every 0.5" change in rim width. Tread patterns are often tuned to accomodate different tyre widths. Tyres for a particular dimension of a given tyre line may vary in appearance from the tyre shown in the photograph. WARNING: Serious or fatal injury may result from tyre failure due to underinflation or overloading. To ensure correct air pressure and vehicle load, refer to vehicle owner's manual or tyre information placard on the vehicle. Serious injury or death may result from explosion of tyre/rim assembly due to improper mounting. Only tyre professionals should mount tyres and they should never inflate beyond 2.8 bar to seat the beads. Before mixing types of tyres in any configuration on any vehicle, be sure to check the vehicle owner's manual for its recommendations. DANGER: Never mount a 16" diameter tire on a 16.5" rim. DANGER: Never mount a 17" diameter tire on a 17.5" rim. Inflation pressure increase must not exceed the maximum pressure branded on the tyre sidewall. When a customer requests a replacement tyre with a lower speed rating than the original equipment tyre, you must clearly communicate to him or her that the handling of the vehicle may be different, and that its maximum speed capability is limited to that of the lowest speed-rated tyre on the vehicle. Exceeding the lawful speed limit is neither recommended nor endorsed.
