Michelin XAS | 175HR14

From its launch in 1965, the XAS remained the reference tyre until the end of the ʹ70s. It was the first tyre with an asymmetrical tread pattern, with the inside and outside of the XAS working differently to give the vehicle an optimal balance. As asymmetric as a foot! Michelin made more progress by differentiating the many elements that form the tyre, leading to the creation of the XAS : the first tyre with an asymmetrical tread pattern. The XAS was developed by taking into account the separate type of work performed by the shoulders, sidewalls and various parts of the crown, depending on whether they are on the inner or outer side of the car. Just like a person’s foot is asymmetric, the inside and outside of a tyre work differently to provide the vehicle with optimal balance. Like moving on rails! It was the first standard tyre designed to run at 210 km/h (131 mph) and its exceptional performance naturally led to the XAS being used in Formula France racing from 1968 onwards, circuit racing, rallies and hill climbs.

Spec indicate the Michelin XAS 175HR14 tire is tube type. Can it be used tubeless?
By John H on February 29, 2016

Any tire listed as tube-type does require a tube and we do not recommend attempting to use such a tire without a tube installed.

76 Mercury Comet: Would like to replace the original wheels and tires with a set of wider ones
By Emil on July 23, 2018

We are not able to make non-standard size recommendations sight unseen. Our suggestion is that you find a local shop willing to help you measure for a larger setup if you are not able to yourself. Get us some numbers and a look you are going for and we will be happy to show you what is available!
