Michelin AIR: The tire for demanding pilots.
The Michelin AIR general aviation tire is the best tire Michelin knows how to make. It offers a number of exclusive features designed to improve performance and extend tire life, starting with two new specialized rubber compounds. The sidewall compound is optimized to provide maximum ozone and ultraviolet light protection, while the MX2000 tread compound is Michelin’s toughest. In addition, the Air Cushion Inner Liner provides a protective cushion over the casing plies which guards against inner tube chafing. And the Posi-Fit” bead construction reduces movement between the tire and the wheel for improved lateral stability. As you might expect, Michelin AIR tires are not inexpensive. But the world’s finest products rarely are. The fact is, Michelin put a lot into the AIR tires so you can get a lot out of them. And when you consider how much you get, you may wonder why they don’t cost more.
