Customized Michelin AIR Rubber Compounds
Tire exterior consists of two specialized rubber compounds which are designed to provide Michelin’s longest tire life and lowest cost-per-landing. Sidewall is optimized for both ozone and ultraviolet light protection which reduces ozone cracking in key areas of the tire, and helps prevent premature aging. The MX2000 tread compound is Michelin’s toughest, providing our maximum amount of exterior wear and crack resistance.
