Michelin began as a rubber factory in Clermont-Ferrand in Auvergne, central France. Pioneers of pneumatic tyre manufacturing, the new enterprise was incorporated as a tyre producer in circa 1889. The first tyre design was patented only two years later, in 1891. In the same year, Michelin celebrated its first high profile race victory by supplying tyres to Charles Terront in the world’s first long-distance cycle race. The manufacturer soon expanded into Britain and other European countries. Michelin car tyres in the UK have been available since 1905.
Why choose Michelin car tyres?
Michelin tyres are not the most affordable on the market; however, as manufacturers, they demonstrably have a breadth of experience in developing top performing tyres. In particular, these tyres have a reputation for excellent road durability. Michelin stands by the belief that producing tyres with all-round performance is preferable to seeking to optimise one feature at the expense of others. A tyre that is merely designed for performance may let you down when it comes to other areas such as durability. This all-rounded approach means that Michelin tyres have a robust safety record for all weather conditions. Like Bridgestone and other leading brands, Michelin offer a full range of tyre types including summer, winter all-season and off-road tyre types for motorcycles, cars, vans, lorries and commercial vehicles and, of course, run-flats.
