Michelin has recently introduced a new winter tire offering. The X-Ice XI3 is designed to ultilize the latest in rubber compounding technology and Michelins patented C3M manufacturing processes.
Michelin's C3M process for manufacturing tires gives them an innovative edge...but what is the C3M process, and how does it work? That's still a secret.
However, the C3M process has become an integral part of Michelin's manufacturing capabilities, with even greater levels of quality and uniformity as its other more mature tire manufacturing processes. As for how the C3M process compares to other tire manufacturers' newest high-tech tire building systems, Michelin has already placed over 15 million Original Equipment and replacement C3M-made tires on the road and while the others are still in the pre-mass market stages. Today more than 20% of the Michelin Pilot line is made using the C3M process.
But the C3M process is still a secret. Even those who have viewed a C3M facility haven't seen details of the process at work. However the real importance isn't as much about what C3M is, as it's about what the C3M process does. One distinct feature of the process is its pinpoint accuracy for the placement of a tires components during the manufacturing process. In terms of quality and uniformity it's state-of-the-art. Now, Michelin is leveraging the advantages of its C3M process to produce some of the most technically advanced tires ever designed.
We are currently testing the new X-Ice XI3 against all of the current competitive products and will be publishing the results in the near future.
With introduction of the new X-Ice XI3 the previous generation X-Ice XI2 is being discontinued. That means the remaining inventory of the XI2 is being discounted to move it out of our warehouse to make room for the new model.
here's a LINK to see if the discounted Michelin X-Ice XI2 tires are available in a size you need or can use
