Michelin XZX | S rated | 165R15




Michelin XZX | Michelin XZX Tires Michelin XZX radial is available for many popular European applications requiring a 15 inch radial tire and authentic styling. These 15 inch radial tires feature Michelin's XZX tread pattern and an S speed rating. With radial casing plies, Michelin XZX Tires offered a considerable advance in technology. Its revolutionary construction for the time had 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. At that time, Lancia was the first car manufacturer to fit the X tire as original equipment on the Aurelia model. From 1955, radial technology became more popular and the majority of European car manufacturers opted for the radial solution. The X could be fitted to cars of very different categories, from the original and popular 2 CV or Beetle to the fascinating Mercedes 190SL or Facel Vega. The advantages of the radial tire compared with the cross-ply tire could be clearly seen in all areas :?- greater safety (road-holding, grip, braking)?- economical to use (double the mileage, considerable reduction in fuel consumption) - increased comfort thanks to the flexibility of the sidewalls. In the Fifties, the superiority of the X tire was such that a number of racing drivers adopted it, although Michelin was not officially involved in any racing.

Can you please tell me the production date, when they were made, of the 165/SR/15 XZX tires
By BruceS. Pierce on September 28, 2018

Our stock is generally between 6-12 months old and stored in a climate controlled warehouse away from the sun. The tires we sell do not begin their service life till installed, so you can expect the maximum tire life from what you receive regardless of production date. We do cycle our inventory regularly. The specific DOT build date codes are not readily available, however.

is this an appropriate tire for a 1960 MGA 1600?
By Ted on June 04, 2018

The original equipment would have been 560-15, which translates to a 155R15. However, 165R15 is an acceptable replacement size.

What is the age of these tires; have they been out of production for some time; how long have they been on the shelf; who is manufacturing them?
By Ed Scheiber on July 24, 2018

Thanks for reaching out! These are brand new production tires manufactured by Michelin. We do not have the exact DOT production dates readily available, but these are new tires that were manufactured recently.
