Michelin XAS | 165VR15 | N0




This Michelin XAS 165VR15 radial tire carries the prestigious N0 validation from Porsche, making them an approved tire for use on classic Porsche sports cars. This Michelin radial tire was original equipment on 1965 through 1967 Porsche 911, and were also used on Porsche 912 and 914 models. The 165R15 sizing on this new Michelin XAS N0 code tire can be used on many Porsche models, dating all the way back to the 356, which originally came with 560-15 bias ply tires. This would be a great upgrade for the original bias ply tires, while still honoring the Porsche performance legacy.

Constructed by Michelin’s esteemed craftsmen, this tire is designed for authenticity and performance. It features a V speed rating for safe service up to 149 miles per hour (240 kilometers per hour). This is a tubeless tire, but you may run a tube (SKU #85361) if your wheels require it. The tire features the famous asymmetrical tread pattern and all of the correct sidewall markings, including the N0 stamp on the sidewall.
