Michelin XZX

  • The XZX succeeded the ZX in 1976, as a continuation of the Michelin X range of radial tyres.
  • The Michelin XZX range are extremely good value saloon car tyres considering the quality of the product.
  • The amount of thin sipes in the tread pattern help move water improving wet grip.
  • The carcass structure of the XZX is designed to absorb the bumps of the road and give excellent levels of comfort.



The Michelin XZX resulted from Michelins tradition of continuous research and development to improve tyre performance. The sophisticated radial casting design and special tread pattern combine to maintain high mileage potential and provide exceptional adhesion particularly in the wet. The XZX range of tyres was partially replaced by the MX range of tyres in the mid 80's.

Michelin XZX Radial Technology

The advantages of the radial tyre compared with the cross-ply tyre could be clearly seen in all areas:

  • Greater safety (road-holding, grip, braking)
  • Economical to use (double the mileage, considerable reduction in fuel consumption)
  • Increased comfort thanks to the flexibility of the sidewalls.

In the fifties the superiority of the X tyre was such that a number of racing drivers adopted it, although Michelin was not officially involved in any racing.
