See Michelin tires on the Ford GT
Tires from Michelin North America Inc. are rolling on several high profile vehicles at this year's North American International Auto Show in Detroit, including perhaps the most-talked about car at the show, the Ford GT.
Modern Tire Dealer was at the show Tuesday and saw the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires on the Ford GT. Those same tires will be OE on the 2015 Corvette Z06 and the 2016 Shelby GT350R Mustang. (The Corvette also will feature Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.)
Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires will be featured on these vehicles:
- 2016 BMW X5M (21 inch only)
- 2016 BMW X6M (21 inch only)
- 2016 Cadillac ATS-V
- 2016 Cadillac CTS-V
- 2016 Shelby GT350 Mustang
Michelin says its tires were specifically designed and developed in partnership with the respective automobile manufacturer.
“Michelin is proud of our collaboration as a preferred technology partner with many of the world’s leading automakers," says Bob Carroll, vice president of North American sales for Michelin. "We have worked very closely with their engineering teams to design and develop tires that maximize the performance of these amazing vehicles. We like to say that we don’t just sell tires, we sell technology that enables mobility. Every one of these projects was unique with the tires specifically tuned to the vehicle.”
These vehicles join an impressive and growing list of automobiles exclusively fitted with Michelin tires including:the BMW M3 and M4, Ferrari 458 Speciale, Mercedes Benz SLS AMG Couple Black Series, Porsche 918 Spyder and 911 GT3R.
