MICHELIN® Super Confort Stop S 130/140 - 40

Vintage Michelin tires are full of history. Their legendary quality and innovation started nearly 100 years ago with the "cable" tyre" and produced dozens of industry firsts through the years, literally leading the tire industry. Coker Tire Company is the exclusive distributor of Michelin Classic products in North America and proudly offers these iconic tires for collector automobiles. Replacing beaded edge tires, cross-ply tires with bead wires formed the second generation of detachable tires. These tires benefited from two major innovations, the introduction of carbon black and the appearance of textile wire cords in the tire carcass. The incorporation of wires into the bead in 1925 led to an improvement in tire retention on the rim. These tires originally benefited from two major innovations prior to their creation, the introduction of carbon black in 1917 which led to a five-fold increase in tire service life and the appearance of layers of textile wire cords parallel with each other in the tires carcass, which gave rise to the so-called "cable" tyre in 1919 and the "cable confort" in 1923, the first low pressure car tire. Resulting from research which led to even lower pressures and slower wear, Michelin brought out a very low pressure tire in 1932, the "Superconfort". 1935 saw the launch of the Superconfort Stop S the first tire with a heavily siped tread pattern, specially designed for wet surfaces. At the time, Michelin was the only manufacturer who knew how to make this type of tire with the famous wavy "zigzag" sipes, which greatly improve safety because of the excellent grip they give. As its name suggests, the "Superconfort Stop S" tire offers exceptional comfort, in addition to its performance on the road.

Bias Ply Construction

Bias ply tire construction is a method that was used from the 1900's through the 1970's on passenger cars and light trucks. Bias ply tires feature ply cords that run at a 45 degree angle to the bead, and overlap in a crisscross pattern, depending on how many ply layers are used. This creates a strong tire, but bias ply tires have a tendency to follow breaks or ruts in the pavement. Bias ply tires are the most authentic choice for classic car restorations and traditional hot rod builds. Coker Tire offers a huge variety of bias ply tires for many applications.
