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.

  • Winiu 4.2 111150

    Michelin ALPIN 175/70 R14

    I drove on different tyres (BARUM, KORMORAN, DĘBICA), but riding on Michelin Alpin is a real pleasure. Do not make noise like some other manufacturers tyres and very well retain their properties. I think it's thanks to these tyres I was able to overcome drifts, from which other cars unfortunately not left alone. Mark really commendable. More >
  • Demon 4.2 111150

    Michelin ALPIN A2 205/55 R16

    Great tyres stick to the road, both the slush and the iced surface. I've never had problems to get out of some drifts that buried the road. Umiarkowny noise rolling resistance rather standard when it comes to abrasion, unfortunately, it's hard to determine the more that this year's winter is very warm so consumption should increase. Overall, I highly recommend. More >
  • Przemo 4.4 111150

    Michelin ALPIN A3 165/70 R14

    Alpina A3 founded the Skoda Fabi II. I do not have much porówniania - drove in the winter months Skoda (replacement) service at Debice Frigo and certainly I do not want ;) Debica fun kopny bites in snow, but at 80-90 km / h car starts prowl - Michelin is another story. I Matadory year and I would prefer to ride in the summer on my winter Michelinach. More >
  • Mario 4.2 111150

    Michelin PILOT ALPIN A2 205/55 R16

    A tyre, but pretty loud. In wet and dry conditions is beyond reproach, but the snow could have been better. It has sometimes problems with deeper snow, which here in Poland is not missing out on back roads. Appearance is not the worst, and similarly with abrasion, while a plus, you can say that, despite the many holes and imperfections of Polish roads were damaged, in w / the distance, none of the tyres on the car and the culture of the car is still unqualified. Overall tyre helpful but in my opinion it is a loud tyre. More >
