At first sight a tyre is just black and round with a hole in the middle. Look a bit more deeply, however, and you'll see quite a different story.
The MICHELIN tyre is a complex piece of high technology, consisting of dozens of components using a wide variety of raw materials, that is essential for your safety and the efficient running of your vehicle.
The composition of the rubber varies within the same tyre. Each material has very different properties, whose manufacture demands great precision. Each is meticulously designed for the requirements of flexibility and strength, grip and so on. Huge lengths of metal and synthetic wires and cords are also used.
