More miles. With the safety you expect. Designed for the doers, Michelin's longest-lasting tire keeps you on the go longer[1] —because life never stops moving.

Lose track of the miles. The longest-lasting tire among leading competitive tires.[1]

 

Drive on and rack up the miles. Our MaxTouch Construction™ is designed to ensure the tire contact forces are evenly distributed - maximizing treadlife. And our durable EverTread™ compound offers long-lasting dependability.

  Escape compromise. Miles of uncompromised safety performance.[2]

 

Leave worries behind and hit the road with confidence. Our IntelliSipe™ technology is designed to maximize biting edges for exceptional grip and control in all seasons, while special rain grooves help prevent hydroplaning.

  Get there comfortably. Designed to deliver a quiet, comfortable ride.

 

Experience miles of quiet and comfort wherever you go. Our Comfort Control Technology™ helps ensure ride satisfaction while minimizing noise with the road.

Michelin® always aims to bring together multiple performances.

At MICHELIN®, we continuously push safety, durability and fuel efficiency, and even more performances, all at the same time and with no trade-offs. That’s what we mean by MICHELIN® Total PerformanceTM, which has and will always be our difference on every tire.

Warranties

*Mileage Warranty Exceptions

Split fitments – If your vehicle has tires of different sizes on the front versus the rear axles, your tires cannot be rotated as recommended. Therefore, the mileage warranty on each rear tire will cover half the number of miles as the standard mileage warranty for that particular tire line. ZP (Zero Pressure) tires – The maximum mileage warranty for ZP tires is 30,000 miles.

Actual on-road results may vary.

(1) Based on internal wet braking test results at 50 mph and at 60 mph in tire size 225/55R17 97H versus Goodyear® Assurance® TripleTred™ All-Season and Continental® TrueContact™ in 225/55R17 97H and Pirelli® P4™ Four Seasons+ in 225/55R17 97T on a 2016 Chevrolet Malibu; and in tire size 205/55R16 91H versus Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus in 205/55R16 91H tire size on a 2015 Honda Civic. Actual on-road results may vary.

>> The sizes shown are average design values for tires measured on specified measuring rim widths. Some tires may vary from this value by +/-3% of the section height (affecting overall diameter), and +/-4% of the section width.
>> Section width varies approximately 0.2" (5mm) for every 0.5" change in rim width.
>> Tread patterns are often tuned to accomodate different tire widths. Tires for a particular dimension of a given tireline may vary in appearance from the tire shown in the photograph.

WARNING: Serious or fatal injury may result from tire failure due to underinflation or overloading. To ensure correct air pressure and vehicle load, refer to vehicle owner's manual or tire information placard on the vehicle. Serious injury or death may result from explosion of tire/rim assembly due to improper mounting. Only tire professionals should mount tires and they should never inflate beyond 40 psi to seat the beads. Before mixing types of tires in any configuration on any vehicle, be sure to check the vehicle owner's manual for its recommendations.

DANGER: Never mount a 16" diameter tire on a 16.5" rim.
DANGER: Never mount a 17" diameter tire on a 17.5" rim.

Inflation pressure increase must not exceed the maximum pressure branded on the tire sidewall. When a customer requests a replacement tire with a lower speed rating than the original equipment tire, you must clearly communicate to him or her that the handling of the vehicle may be different, and that its maximum speed capability is limited to that of the lowest speed-rated tire on the vehicle. Exceeding the lawful speed limit is neither recommended nor endorsed.

For high-speed driving, additional inflation pressure and possibly reduced tire loading and/or upsizing is required. In the absence of specific recommendations by the vehicle manufacturer, use the following guidelines based on those in the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organization Standards Manual.

For speeds over 160km/h (100 mph), load and inflation must be adjusted according to the table below.

H-Speed Rated Sizes:
Maximum Speed (mph) 100 106 112 118 124 130
Inflation Increase (psi) 0.0 1.0 2.0 3.0 4.0 5.0
Load Capacity (% of max.) 100 100 100 100 100 100
