MICHELIN® AIR X® – Legendary Radial Performance From Michelin®

There are some real advantages to having these under your wings.

Compared to bias tires, Michelin ® AIR X ® radials offer:

  • Measurable Fuel Savings
  • More Landings Per Tread
  • Improved Cut Resistance

Light Weight Radial Design

  • Michelin AIR X radials typically weigh 20–30% less than comparable bias tires, and they operate at cooler temperatures.
  • Helps provide measurable fuel savings, more landings per tread, longer wear characteristics and a more stable contact patch than bias tires, as well as shorter turnaround times and reduced carcass fatigue.

Extra Strong Carcass

  • Michelin’s carcass design helps restrict tire growth and the stretching of rubber.
  • Results in better cut resistance than bias tires.

Optimized Tread

  • Durable cut-resistant tread includes deep skid depth and specially-designed circumferential grooves.
  • Helps provide for an extended tire life, less heat build up and lower maintenance costs due to fewer tire changes.

Customized Rubber Compounds

  • Sidewall is optimized for both ozone and ultraviolet light protection which helps reduce ozone cracking in key areas of the tire.
  • Provides our maximum amount of exterior wear and crack resistance for a long tire life.

Flexible Casing

  • The Michelin ® AIR X ® casing is more fl exible than casings used in bias tires.
  • Results in noticeably smooth operating characteristics during taxiing, landing and takeoffs.
