Only ultra-high performance tire in the Michelin lineup to offer TriFusion™ - three different compounds bonded together on the tread face to provide a balance of all-weather performance. State-of-the-art directional tread pattern and wet-weather silica compound combine for extreme wet-weather control. First tire with enhanced MaxTouch Construction™ to maximize the tire's contact with the road and evenly distribute the forces of acceleration, braking and cornering - delivering longer tread life without sacrifice. It's all about great quality and performance. When it comes to fast rolling or withstanding the rigors of the road, these tires are the ones you can rely on.
The side of the road is not a fun place. In fact, it can be dangerous. Thankfully, there’s run flat technology. It allow you to drive for a limited distance and reduced speed after a puncture or other event has resulted in either a drop in tire inflation pressure or a complete loss of inflation pressure. For example, Michelin® Zero Pressure (ZP) tires provide run-flat technology that allows you to drive up to 50 miles at 50 mph with a flat tire. Never mix run flat tires with tires that do not have run flat technology (conventional tires) unless in an emergency situation on a limited, temporary basis. The conventional tire should then be replaced with a run flat tire as soon as possible. It is not recommended to mix different run flat technologies/products.
Tires are such an important part of your driving experience. They keep you connected to the road and respond to how you drive. That's why when it comes to your next tire purchase you should consider much more than just the price tag.
Remember to think about things like safety, fuel economy & longevity. When it comes to making such an important decision, you can trust Michelin to provide you with the right tire for all of your driving needs.
