Tires are the only parts of your car that touch the ground. So it's nice to know that ours are used by some of the fastest motorsports teams in the world; that we've received more than thirty awards for customer satisfaction; and that, when the Space Shuttle touches down, it lands on MICHELIN® tires.
But does all this really matter to you? Well, when you're driving on a winding mountain road, making your way home in a heavy rainstorm, or navigating freeway traffic, you can drive with confidence. Your MICHELIN® tires have received the same obsessive engineering, quality-driven production, and hand-inspection that our racecar and Space Shuttle tires received.
At MICHELIN® we have a passion for excellence in engineering, design, and production. We make sure that each tire is designed and built to meet the highest standards of quality. We x-ray a sample of tires for structural integrity and hand inspect each one before it leaves the factory.
NASA has relied on MICHELIN® as its sole tire supplier since the first Space Shuttle launch in 1981. What goes into our tires for NASA? The same things that go into our tires for the Concorde, F22 Stealth Fighter, B2 Stealth Bomber, and every car and truck tire we make: obsessive engineering, innovation, and quality control.
Our passion for making tires is only equalled by our passion for winning races. We always give 100% to make sure our drivers have an advantage. No wonder MICHELIN® tires are the choice of some of the fastest teams in the world. Check out our motorsports coverage.
