Default Good tires

Hi Folks , what would you ( the forum ) feel would be the better choice of these 2 tire sets . I will be using 15 " factory rims. We also want a smooth ride , and our car is the base model , with P195.65.15 :

Michelin Pilot Axelto OR Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max

Need to make a choice by next week , May 1st

Thanks , Silverdash

I agree. Every Goodyear I've owned turn out to be weak junk. Every Michelin? Exceptional.

I agree on the Michelin being the better tire for this person. But I doubt very seriously that they make tires for all the things you mentioned. Especially since you don't have s clue about anything about NASCAR. There is no tires from Michelin on any NASCAR series race car. And Goodyear has made tires for open wheel. So given these blunders I can't take the rest of that list but as bogas also. People because you see it in print don't mean it's fact. The before post is proof of that.

INCORRECT.

National Geographic did a MEGAFACTORIES episode a year or two ago that went inside the Factory.

They do make all of those over at their HQ in europe

Here's the link.



Should watch it. Ill accept the apology after you do. I don't usually make outlandish claims without knowing the facts first. Did you know their tires Take a very long time to make and are not automated? every single one? bet ya didnt.
Oh and i never said NASCAR RACE cars. However they are on many pace cars, and most of the large tow trucks that tow horrible wrecks off the field.

Heres their airline tire side http://www.airmichelin.com/?gclid=CK...FbE7Ogodb3EAoQ

Heres the space shuttle http://www.airmichelin.com/generalcontent.aspx?id=149

OH and a article on their military tires http://www.4wheeloffroad.com/techart...ilitary_tires/

Thanks a lot.

If you google on "F1 tyres" you 'll get Bridgestone and Pirelli and that's it. It's really hard to qualify your company to make F1 tyres. So no Michelin.

Goodyear SUV tyres: SUV Tires | Goodyear Tires


Nascar above

So I just want to say Goodyear makes great tyres. Michelin too...

You're right, they no LONGER do F1, however their basis on performance tires was used in the early 70's and 80s also in like 2000's

"Michelin first competed in the 1977 Formula One season, when Renault started development of their turbocharged F1 car. Michelin introduced radial tyre technology to Formula One and won the Formula One Drivers' Championship with Brabham, before withdrawing in 1984.
The company returned to Formula One in 2001, supplying the Williams, Jaguar, Benetton (renamed Renault in 2002), Prost and Minardi teams. Toyota joined F1 in 2002 with Michelin tyres, and McLaren also signed up with the company. Michelin tyres were initially uncompetitive but by the 2005 season were totally dominant. This was partly because the new regulations stated that tyres must last the whole race distance (and qualifying), and partly because only one top team (Ferrari) was running Bridgestones, and so had to do much of the development work. Michelin in contrast had much more testing and race data provided by the larger number of teams running their tyres."- Excerpt wiki

They moved away from it because there really wasnt much money, their main customer basis is the US, and most US citizens dont give a hoot about F1 haha
