The history of Michelin tyres

Michelin is not just one of the most innovative tyre manufacturers, but also one of the oldest. It was founded by brothers André and Édouard in 1889. In 1934, the tyre company introduced a model which, if punctured, could run on a special foam lining, a design now known as a run-flat tyre.

In 1946, Michelin developed and patented a key innovation in tyre history, the radial tyre (which was initially marketed as the "X" tyre), becoming one of the world's leading tyre manufacturers.

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

Michelin tyres in motorsports

Michelin tyres have won plenty of awards in tests conducted by some of the biggest automotive magazines and have also got extremely positive feedback from drivers. The quality of Michelin tyres is also demonstrated by their countless victories in motorsport rallies and races, including Formula 1, WRC, 24 Hours of Le Mans, MotoGP and cross-country cycling.

Michelin was the first to introduce radial construction to MotoGP in the 80’s and multi-compound tyres in the 90’s. From 1993 to 2006, all world championships had gone to a driver with Michelin tyres. All in all they’ve had 360 victories in 36 years.

    Michelin PILOT SPORT 3 225/40 R18

    I am running a pair of these on the front of my remapped 335d and they have been excellent. While it is not essential for me to run branded tyres they are not expensive for the mileage they have returned. I do sometimes corner at speed and they have always shown excellent grip and have worn evenly. Due to the mileage of my car I have had to revisit maintaining the suspension a few times and four wheel alignment is essential for good handling as well as even tyre wear. I would recommend factoring this in a cost every other year, or ideally annually. More >

    Michelin Pilot Sport 4 215/45 R17

    Heard so many people rant and rave about these tyres being the best all rounder. Was a little skeptical until i purchased them myself. Absolutely transformed the cars handling (it was no slouch to begin with being an RS) highest confidence chucking the car into any corner. Wet grip is unbelievable as well, probably performs better in the wet than a lot of tyres do in the dry. More >

    More 'or less and' an obvious choice but also reading on the net at the end and 'the best choice for this type of car.

If someone has the same I recommend replacing these Mihály ... More >
