Michelin today launched its LTX Force range of SUV tyres in India, in 15, 16 and 17-inch sizes. The Michelin LTX Force tyres offer unmatched durability, superior grip on-road and higher traction off-road, the company said. It added that the introduction of this new range in India helps the company further strengthen its product portfolio for SUVs owners in India.
The Michelin LTX Force tyres uses Compact Tread Technology, which takes advantage of two contradictory performances of high durability and grip, noted the company. The tread pattern inspired by endurance races is designed to provide a greater contact area thanks to higher tread blocks which favour both durability and traction, it said. These tyres are claimed to last up to 35 % more than its main competitors in this segment, and reduce braking distance on wet surfaces by up to 2 meters.
Mohan Kumar, Commercial Director, Michelin India, said the SUV market is one of the fastest growing segments in India. The Michelin LTX Force is an all-rounder and is ideal for SUV owners who regularly use their vehicle on both paved and unpaved road, he added.
The company said that the Michelin LTX Force range of tyres is available across the country at Michelin premium dealerships - the Michelin Priority Partners, the TYREPLUS network and Michelin retailers.
