The new MICHELIN® Air® general aviation tire is the best we know how to make. It offers a number of exclusive features designed to improve performance and extend tire life, starting with two new specialized rubber compounds. 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.
|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.|
|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. |
|Unique Bead Construction
||Provides a firm grip to help reduce movement between the tire and the wheel.
||Help improve lateral stability for a long tire life, even under rough landing conditions. |
|Contoured Shoulder Design
||Helps absorb lateral impacts associated with landing.
||Designed to help the tire achieve a full life, even under adverse conditions. |
|Optimized Casing Design
||Proprietary production processes help balance stresses within the tire structure. Strong, yet light weight nylon cords are designed to exceed strict industry standards for overpressure strength.
||Results in an efficient, light weight production with excellent balance properties for smooth taxiing, even wear, and resistance to heat build up for a long tire life. |
