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 19, 2016

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

I am looking for tyres for my Rover P6, 2000TC. I would like to be as close as I can to the Michelin ZX? that is currently on the car, date coded 5/84. Plenty of tread left, but 25 years too old to trust. They are 185/70 R14. Can you make suggestions?
By JIM WALLEN on October 09, 2018

Thanks for reaching out! The best we could offer would be the XAS TL. It is the only Michelin option we offer in 185/70R14. Click Here to take a look!
