Safety and comfort
Strengthened bead area Thanks to B2 technology: ‘Flat bead wire’, a patented system giving better torque transmission without rotation on the rim for loader tires, and greater longevity for tires for underground mine machines.
Improved tyre mounting Adapted contact area: Better positioning on the rim Bead wire, equipped with B2 technology: Better pressure distribution through the tyre/rim interface
Cleaner manufacturing process All our Earthmover factories are ISO 14001 certified Michelin environmental impact has been reduced by 22% since 2005
Environmentally-friendly tyre design Free of aromatic oils
Fewer raw materials consumed Longer lasting tyre Better repairability and retreadability due to Michelin casing
Michelin – we take you further.
The vision of our founders, Edouard and André Michelin, has guided the
development of the MICHELIN brand for more than 125 years: making driving as simple, safe, and
comfortable as possible – first with innovative tires and wheels, followed by road maps, travel guides, and
contributions toward improving traffic infrastructure. Along with this comes a strong engagement with the
environment, as modern mobility must be sustainable and not detrimental to the environment.
Each year the Michelin Group produces more than 178 million tires in 68
production facilities in 17 countries, and it operates sales networks in more than 170 countries. The product
offerings are many: from bicycle, passenger car, truck, motorcycle, and tractor tires, to tires for 5-ton earth-
moving machines. Michelin employs 111,700 people worldwide and owns one of the oldest, most famous
trademarks in the world – the legendary Michelin Man.
Targeted development: MICHELIN Total Performance
In the development of new products, Michelin faithfully pursues the concept of
"MICHELIN Total Performance", backed by the rigorous standard of always bringing together a number of
performance characteristics into a tire, to achieve optimal results. We follow this philosophy not only in the
development of our standard products, but also in motorsports. Numerous technical innovations help to
relieve burdens on the environment, drivers, and businesses. Hidden out of sight in tire casings, tread
designs, and rubber compounds, throughout their lives MICHELIN tires show their full potential: they offer
excellent grip, long life, and reduced fuel consumption thanks to their low rolling resistance.
To better understand the conditions which tires are subjected to in everyday
use, in the summer of 2014 Michelin began a unique research project – the Road Usage Lab. Vehicles from
3,000 drivers in Europe were equipped with special measurement devices to record data about the tires'
use. These valuable findings are being employed in the development of future tire models, making them
better suited to the needs of real drivers.
