Tyre Research and Development Initiatives

Expertise that runs deep

You probably already know that it takes a lot to build tyres that can handle everything that a super-powered car can give.
Michelin relies on 125 years of information gleaned from experience,
both trackside and in the lab. Our constant thirst for knowledge has placed us at the top for quality, performance and innovation.

Over the years, we’ve learned to:

- select the most appropriate raw materials
- or invent them when needed

- find the right combination of materials, design and tyre structure to bring out the best performance

- build tyres flawlessly and ensure that they are of the utmost quality with billions of kilometres of finely tuned testing.

The result? Sheer exhilaration

What this means for you is that our knowledge base and expertise provide tyres
with uncompromising performance. Ones that last a long time, yet also grip better, stop better and steer better. Giving you the kind of ride that you want.

For Michelin’s R&D teams, the race to improve tyre technology never stops. And delivering more performance continues to be Michelin’s strategic focus.
