PERformance made to last
IT’S ESSENTIAL TO EXTEND THE LIFESPAN OF TYRES
Producing tyres today still consumes quite a bit of energy and raw materials.
If tires were used until their legal tread limit*, 128 million tires could be spared every year in Europe
That’s a saving of 6,9 billion euros, and 6,6 million tons of CO2 that aren’t rejected back into the atmosphere**.
At Michelin, we’ve always made it our mission to make tires that are perform and remain safe, in spite of the distance travelled. A guiding principle that we apply to all of our tires: for cars, bikes, motorcycles, trucks, planes, etc.
MICHELIN HAS BEEN FIGHTING TO MAKE TESTING WORN TYRES THE NORM
Michelin has long been committed to make performance tests on worn tires compulsory. Because life happens on worn tires, we are continuously working to make our tires perform throughout their entire life span.
