High performance, vintage look
It recalls the high performance and high sidewall tyres of the 50s and 60s. This size 6.00 R 16 exclusive profile was developed by Michelin to withstand the challenge of high speeds (Speed index W = 270 km/h -168 mph-) that could be reached by the Jaguar XK 150 or Aston Martin DB.
Its radial-ply structure provides excellent handling and asymmetric tread blocks helps reduce rolling noise.
In November 2009, this exclusive tyre enabled an Austin-Healey to beat the Group 2, Class 8 / 1,000 km endurance record on the Millbrook racing circuit, with an average of 246.93 km/h (154 mph)!
