Or are there four? We give to you Michelin Tyres!


Represented by the iconic Michelin Man logo, Michelin Tyres produces over 150 million tyres each year and is the second largest tyre manufacturer in the world. Michelin developed and patented a key innovation in tyre history – the Radial tyre. The radial tyre was developed in 1946, at a time where there was a clear need for more flexible tyres that were able to absorb shocks and be more robust. What makes this type of tyre so unique is the design. With radial tyres cord plies are arranged radially, from the centre of the tyre. Due to the uniqueness of the design, and the benefits over crossply tyres, the Michelin Tyres design climbed to 100% market share in North America. Michelin Tyres are the preferred tyres in most racing events as the tyres are renowned for good steering and better road contact. Michelin also manufacture tyres for aircrafts and space shuttles.
