Michelin Tyres for HCV, LCV and Truck

In 1889 two brothers, André and Edouard Michelin, embarked on a great human and industrial odyssey to develop modern transport solutions – the key to freedom and economic development – through ceaseless innovation.

In 1946 Michelin filed a patent for a new tyre – the Radial in 1952 Michelin adapted this technology and applied it to truck, HCV and LCV tyres, followed in 1959 by the Michelin X Radial for earthmoving equipment

Michelin offers a wide variety of choices, capable of adapting its tyres to different types of vehicles, journeys and conditions. In compliance with legislation and the necessary technical requirements.

In general, the UK Construction and Use Regulations require that tyres of the same construction should be fitted
on the same axle. Fitting tyres with different tread patterns is tolerated provided they:

  • have sufficient load capacity for the plated weights of the vehicle axle
    • are the same size
    • are the same structure (radial or diagonal)
    • have sufficient speed capacity.

However, for optimised tyre performance Michelin recommends fitting tyres with the same tread pattern on the same axle.  If this is not possible, Michelin advises mounting twinned tyres of the same type.
