We know that wine gets better with age, but tyres? Well, that’s what Michelin tyres promises. The French company claims to have developed a new technology called Michelin EverGrip that allows tires to not only maintain, but also improve …

Michelin tyres that grip better when they wear down.

This new tyre from Michelin Tyres UK, ( who are no doubt in my mind a great innovative tyre company and have always been at the forefront of tyre development over the years),will be called the Michelin EverGrip, because that’s what the tyre will do. Normally as tyres wear down they eventually become bald, without any tread left. In motor racing bald tyres or slicks as they are known are used on dry weather tracks because of their ability to grip better and hold the road better, but once they are subjected to any bad weather ,even a rain shower they become useless and slide all over the place.

The new Michelin EverGrip work the opposite way. The sipes or rain grooves get bigger as the tyres wear down and also have another set of grooves that can only be seen when the tread wears down to a certain thickness, these are on the shoulder of the tyres. The compound of the Michelin EverGrip tyres is also made of different products and not just petro-chemical based. The new products used are in fact sunflower oil and different silica’s. This is also in line with Yokohama tyres who now use orange oil as part of their compound materials and is a general trend of tyre companies to look for more natural and greener products to reduce the reliance of using petro-chemical products when manufacturing the tyres.

The new Michelin EverGrip will be available to buy in the USA after April and will be available in 32 popular sizes. The rest of the World should see this new tyre shortly afterword’s.

Eric Roberts‘s insight:

Michelin tyres are always at the frontier of tyre development now the Michelin Bikes radial tyres.

The development of these Michelin Bikes radial tyres. So, event does not surprise me in the least. In all my years in the tyre trade.   Michelin tyres have been at the forefront of tyre development. The main goal of the tyre manufacturers at the moment. Of course, is to produce tyres that are much lighter and at the same time use new materials that make the products more environmentally friendly.

The main goal is to reduce the rolling resistance of tyres in general. This means that energy needed to move a car forward is reduced, this makes the car more fuel efficient,

due to the design and construction of the tyres and this together with other  factors in a cars design makes the car far more fuel efficient and there for greener in the eyes of the consumer.

Developing new tyres

All this new development is carried out by working together with car manufacturers to develop a tyre that is best suited to the car that is been designed. This is one of the reasons that of late cars a coming onto the market with different sizes and aspect ratios than ever before, in my opinion making the job for us as tyre retailers much more interesting.

The giant French company has also being busy developing other tyre products such as a new run-flat tyre for cars. This is known as the zero pressure tyre or the ZP. It is different to the other makes of run-flat tyres because it drives with the same characteristics as a normal radial tyre. The other makes of run-flat tyres are a very hard ride, due to the very stiff re-enforced sidewalls, but the new Michelin Bikes radial tyres have used different compounds and are a normal ride compared to other makes of tyres.
