      Benefits of Michelin:

      • Stops shorter than a leading competitor[2]

        Exceptional grip provided by IntelliSipe Technology™ maximizes the number of sipes within the tire, which allows you to brake confidently when you need to most for greater peace of mind in stressful driving situations.

      • Lasts up to 21,000 miles longer than a leading competitor[3]

        MaxTouch Construction™ combined with the interlocking action of Michelin's Breakthrough IntelliSipe™ technology delivers impressively long wear life by providing exceptional tread block rigidity while optimizing the tire's contact with the road during acceleration, braking and cornering.

      • Can save dollars of fuel

        The interlocking action of IntelliSipes™ creates a more rigid tread block, which allows for a reduced starting tread depth leading to lower rolling resistance so you can save fuel without sacrificing safety or longevity.

      * Mileage Warranty Exceptions
      Split fitments - If your vehicle has tires of different sizes on the front versus the rear axles, your tires cannot be rotated as recommended. Therefore, the mileage warranty on each rear tire will cover half the number of miles as the standard mileage warranty for that particular tire line.
      ZP (Zero Pressure) tires - The maximum mileage warranty for ZP tires is 30,000 miles.


      Standard limited warranty on all MICHELIN tires

      All MICHELIN® tires have a Standard Manufacturer's Limited Warranty, which covers defects in workmanship and materials for the life of the original usable tread, or for 6 years from date of purchase, whichever occurs first
