Information on the tyre:
Economic, durable and safe - this is what the Michelin AGILIS tyre for vans is known for. With its unique rubber compound, it reduces fuel consumption, and hence contributes to more economical driving. The tyre is also very safe - the designers took care to minimise the braking distance, which is to reduce wet braking distances by 3 meters (compared with older models of Michelin tyres).
The model is featured with a symmetrical tread. This classical pattern provides a balanced performance on dry and wet surfaces. Wide grooves quickly drain water and prevent aquaplaning. The tyre uses a number of advanced technologies that provide more economical driving and better performance. The Durable Contact Patch system, which was borrowed from Michelin truck tyres, allows for a more rectangular surface contact with the ground. This provides better control of the vehicle at high load, typical for vans. This technology also helps to reduce friction, and along with the modern rubber compound, makes Michelin Agilis more resistant to ware and has a longer longevity. The rubber compound delivers superior performance in a wide range of temperature conditions, ensuring optimal grip when occasionally used in mud or snow, on dirt tracks or in other difficult driving conditions. They maintain a superior grip, even when worn. In addition, the tyre’s robustness results from its reinforced, dual-casing architecture, that allows for higher tyre pressure, and protected sidewalls. Each sidewall features eight protective shields that increase kerb impact resistance.
Michelin is one of the leading tyre manufacturers in the world. These products are of the highest performance and best quality , therefore they are ranked as premium class tyres. The company - in addition to its own brand - includes companies such as Michelin, Kleber, BFGoodrich, Riken, Taurus, Kormoran, Tigar, Euromaster, Recamic, Warrior and Saimtyre. The company specialises in the development of HP and UHP tyres.
