MICHELIN® AIR® Series...
Michelin® AIR® Aircraft Tires offer just the right balance of performance and durability required by demanding pilots. 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 new 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.
Michelin® AIR® Aircraft Tires are designed to provide:
- a very long tire life and lower maintenance costs due to fewer tire changes
- exceptional balance for smooth taxiing,even wear, and heat resistance
- maximum protection against sidewall cracking caused by ozone and UV light
- excellent lateral stability and impact absorption, even under rough landing conditions
Deep Tread Depth: Thick rubber in the tread area helps provide for a long tire life. Contributes to lower maintenance costs due to fewer tire changes.
Unique Bead Construction: Provides a firm (tight) fit to help reduce movement between the tire and wheel. Helps improve lateral stability for a long tire life, even under rough landing conditions
Optimized Casing Design: Proprietary Michelin production processes help balance stresses within the tire structure. Strong, yet lightweight nylon cords are designed to exceed strict industry standards for overpressure strength. Results in an effi cient, lightweight product with excellent balance properties for smooth taxiing, even wear, and resistance to heat buildup for a long tire life.
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.
Contoured Shoulder Design: Helps absorb lateral impacts associated with landing. Designed to help the tire achieve a full life, even under adverse conditions.
