Michelin X & X-Stop

Michelin X | Michelin X-Stop

In 1949, Michelin set out to dominate the tire market with a considerable advance in technology. Its revolutionary radial construction of the Michelin X and later the Michelin X-Stop featured the special feature of separating the sidewall function from the crown function. The first major innovation from Michelin, the radial tire was first marketed as the "X" tire in 1949. The advantages of the radial Michelin X tire compared with the cross-ply tire could be clearly seen in all areas. Radial construction offered greater safety, grip and braking performance. Radials also proved economical to use, with double the wear mileage and a considerable reduction in fuel consumption. Drivers enjoyed increased comfort levels thanks to the flexibility of the sidewalls.

Will this tire fit on a 15 inch rim?
By Ron on April 03, 2016

The 125R15 and 135R15 will. The tires with 400 rim diameter designation are metric however, and will not fit a 15 inch wheel.

Would an 185 SR 16 tire fit on a 5 1/2 x 400 rim?
By Phil on July 18, 2016

The 185SR16 tire must be fitted to a 16" wheel. A 400mm diameter wheel requires a 400mm tire.

I am running a 1968 daimler/jaguar v8 250 on new old stock michelin x red stripe. not sure how old they are but do you think they are safe
By ken skates on January 11, 2019

I'm afraid we are unable to speculate sight-unseen as to whether a given tire is safe. If they are more than ten years old, or you don't know how old they are, then it may be prudent to consider replacing them.
