Michelin Pilot tire line extensions allow more options for high performance piston and Turboprop Aircraft
GREENVILLE, S.C., July 26, 2023 – Michelin announces two new sizes added to the popular Michelin Pilot tire line, reflecting Michelin’s proven history of developing ultra-high-performance aviation tires.
Designed to be the best tire money can buy for general aviation aircraft, the Michelin Pilot high-performance bias tire offers the following additional sizes for the general aviation market:
- 00-6 6PR 160MPH P/N 025-316-0
- 00-6 8PR 160 MPH P/N 025-317-1
- 5 8PR 160MPH P/N 025-630-0
- 5 10PR 190MPH P/N 026-631-0
“The Michelin Pilot tire is already one of Michelin’s best-selling tires for the general aviation community,” said Scott Murray, VP of tire sales, Aircraft Business Line for the Michelin North America, Inc. “With their extra-long tire life, the addition of these new sizes will give general aviation owners even more options when deciding how to best equip their aircraft.”
Utilizing the latest carcass technology, the Michelin Pilot tire provides an exceptional level of both strength and durability. Its tubeless design also reduces overall wheel weight, helps eliminate tire creep on the wheel, and can be used with tube-on-tube type rims. Michelin’s exclusive manufacturing process results in built-in balance for smoother taxiing and even tire wear, providing exceptional balance.
“Michelin is recognized as the number one aviation tire manufacturer in the world,” said Murray. “We will continue to confront challenges faced in the aerospace industry and continue our history of innovation.”
