Track-to-Street

Why is Michelin in IMSA? Michelin connects the track to the street within IMSA in several ways. Michelin has motorsports within its DNA, and its unique experience and relentless focus on innovation have made it the technical tire partner of choice for many top manufacturers and independent teams.

Why does Michelin partner with IMSA?

BENEFITS OF IMSA PARTNERSHIP

imsa advance tech full

Advance Technology

As part of its process, Michelin engineers and motorsport tire specialists work with all automotive brands and teams that race within the series. These engineers and specialists monitor tire performance, capture data, recommend performance insights and present development ideas to Michelin technical centers for developing the tires you drive on every day.

Since becoming Official Tire of IMSA in 2019, Michelin has captured research and development data from over one million miles in competition by covering all on-track sessions across three IMSA race series. That data capture and development help fuel the next generation of tire technology.
