Michelin Air X Radial

Michelin Air

First introduced in 1992 and continually refined since, Michelin Air bias-ply tyres are designed with all of the features you would expect from a high performance tyre from one of the world's leading tyre makers.


  • Up to 20-30% lighter in weight than comparable bias ply tires
  • Cooler operating temperatures
  • Quicker aircraft turn-arounds
  • Up to 50% longer tire wear
  • Reduced maintenance costs due to less tire changes
  • Improved cut resistance
  • Increased overload capacity
  • Patented protector ply improves resistance to cuts
  • Belt plies help to prevent tire squirm for longer tread life
  • A More flexible casing than found on bias ply tires, often leading to increased taxiing comfort.
