One of the largest premium tyre manufacturers in the world, Michelin is a company known not only by motorists, but also by food lovers and those who like tourism. Alongside having the most recognisable corporate mascot in the world, this is how the French tyre company can be described in brief.

Michelin tyres are characterised by some of the most advanced technological solutions, while the company's plants are among the most modern. Each Michelin tyre model offers the highest level of performance and always offers something new and previously unprecedented in terms of technology. A good example of this is the Michelin CrossClimate — the first winter-approved summer tyre. Of course, the company also has an extensive range of winter tyres and all-season tyres

This brand's tyres often win awards in the biggest tests conducted by automotive magazines. Their high positions on these ranking lists go hand in hand with the extremely positive feedback from drivers. The quality of Michelin tyres is also demonstrated by victories in motorsport rallies and races, including Formula 1, WRC, 24 Hours of Le Mans, MotoGP and cross-country cycling.

Interesting facts:

Michelin is not just one of the most innovative manufacturers, but also one of the oldest. It was founded by brothers André and Édouard in 1889.

The brand is also famous for issuing travel guides and awarding the best restaurants in the world its mark of quality — the Michelin star. It was André Michelin himself who came up with the idea.

Bibendum, the brand's symbol, is the famous Michelin Man. In 2000, Bibendum won Michelin the title of best logo of all time. The first poster depicting this figure was created in 1898 by the artist Marius Rossillon.

The company has developed a patent for radial tyres, developed the XAS model designed for high-performance cars and produced the first "green" tyre, the Green X.

History of the brand Michelin

Everyone knows him – the creature with a human shape, looking a bit like a boy made of Lego, Casper the cartoon ghost, or the legendary Golem. The Michelin Man, also called Bibendum, has been a constant companion of the firm that has pushed the tyre industry forward for many decades with successive watershed inventions. The mascot that drinks up obstacles Since we have begun by mentioning Michelin’s best-known symbol, it is worth noting that Bibendum (his name means “to drink” in Latin) has worked solidly for very many years to gain the status of an icon of popular culture. The character, of whom French children were at one time reportedly frightened, is today one of the best recognized and most characteristic advertising symbols in the world. He has featured in songs (for example by the French reggae group Tryo), in comic books (including Asterix in Switzerland from 1970), and even in literature (as in William Gibson’s sci-fi novel Pattern Recognition). In 2000 the Michelin Man won his company the title of best logo in history. Legend says that the idea was born by accident, when the firm’s founders, the brothers André and Eduard Michelin, noticed how a pile of tyres resembled a human in shape. Arms and a characteristic smile were added on paper. The first poster featuring the Michelin Man was produced in 1898 by the artist Marius Rossillon. At a banqueting ... Read more >

    Michelin PRIMACY 3

    I had earlier on the official Mondeo 1.8 predecessor Primacy HP. I gave the car after 3 years with the course of about 80 thousand miles on these Samach summer tires with whom I went to the living room and the only set winter tires. On the next car also asked about Michelin dealer and picked up on Primacy3 Passat. After 4 years, I gave the car already in the first set of tires in decent shape at the meter reading over 90 thousand km. Therefore, I do not understand complaints about the rapid wear. Or unusual or switched geometry or children in the home are starting to borrow a car from my parents;). All parameters at a high level so I think Michelin a good investment. If the suspension feels More > the same comfort as a driver and it would probably be less tired and is not a problem. I highly recommend!

    Michelin ALPIN 5

    I was wondering for a quite long time, what tyres should I choose. First I have checked Continental, but they did not have my size (850), so I have decided on Michelin ALPIN 5. I was not sure, did I made a correct decision, due to lack of reviews and test resulst (except for one ADAC). I do not know why there is still Alpine 4 but well... It is hard to write the opinion after first drive, but I did the first few hundred miles and ..... the drive is stable and really quiet (I stepped up to the 93 mph and the noise was bearly heard). What is the most important: the fuel efficiency is fantastic, amazing SURPRISE. I hope that my review will help someone, due to lack of reviews. I am fully More > recommend Michelin ALPIN 5. :) It is hard to have an opinion about the grip on snow or wet surfaces yet.

    Michelin CrossClimate

    Hello, what tire multigrade it was determined that such a purchase, I read a lot of reviews and most were not too interesting for this type of tire, but I have to say your opinion and evaluation. Tires drove 3000 km of sunny days and rainy winters yet I failed so do not judge. High temperatures and sunny days at high speeds the tires work well, do not deviate from summer various companies which until now had. Rain and rain, and here a pleasant surprise positive, the tires did very well, bumping up to large pools of car fled and lost direction, and when buying afraid of it. Summing recommend these tires and I think anyone will be satisfied, at a price you can not complain but something for More > something and safety also counts.

    Michelin Energy Saver

    On mountain roads strongly recommend to keep the tire pressure 3/4 decimal points higher. So you will get the best regular consumption and a longer durability of the same in terms Kilometrici, without affecting the comfort accordingly. With this arrangement pay slightly more careful when cornering on wet roads. It will maintain in any case a good sealing in sudden braking and planing on water. I also found a drop in fuel consumption by 2%. Km. 25,000 currently paths on mountain roads for 70%, the current wear equal to 75% before the "marker" of wear. I hope to Essevi been helpful. My professional activities: public service taxi. My driving experience: since 1979. My km total More > routes to date: 2,575,000.
