High quality Michelin radial for many popular European applications requiring a 15 inch radial tire and authentic styling. These 15 inch radial tires feature Michelin's XZX tread pattern and anS speed rating.
With its XZX tyre with radial casing plies, Michelin offered a considerable advance in technology. Its revolutionary construction for the time had the special feature of separating the sidewall function from the crown function.
The first major innovation from Michelin, the radial tyre was first marketed as the "X" tyre in 1949. At that time, Lancia was the first car manufacturer to fit the X tyre as original equipment on the Aurelia model. From 1955 onwards, radial technology became more popular and the majority of European car manufacturers opted for the radial solution. The X could be fitted to cars of very different categories, from the original and popular 2 CV or Beetle to the fascinating Mercedes 190SL or Facel Vega.

Perfect Tyre for 1967 Porsche 912

Bought a 1967 Porsche 912 and it was fitted with 205 65 R14 and it just did not feel right. Bought these Michelin Classics from Antique Tyres and the car feels amazing now. Antique Tyres are great to deal with, keeping you informed along the way with where the tyres are.
