New MICHELIN PILOT Sizes Added to Aviation Portfolio

The Pilot is an ultra-high-performance bias tire for piston and turboprop aircraft, designed to provide extra-long tire life, exceptional tread life and all-weather protection. The new sizes include:

  • 6.50-8/8/160
  • 7.00-6/8/160
  • 8.50-10/10/160

The Michelin Pilot has improved durability and resistance to foreign object damage. The tire incorporates the latest high-tech ozone-resistant compounds into the sidewall rubber. The natural contour-mold profile promotes casing equilibrium for improved footprint-pressure distribution in the contact patch. By significantly improving overall tire life, pilots may achieve more takeoffs and landings while purchasing fewer tires.
