    The Michelin ZX carcass’s casing plies are laid radially across the tread, providing a comfortable supple ride, while remaining cool at extended cruising speeds. The multisiped tread of the ZX ensure predictable handling characteristics for safe cornering in all weathers.

    The 135 SR 15 Michelin ZX is the perfect car for a Citroen Ami, Renault Dauphine, Ondine, Renault 4CV, R8, R10, Floride & Renault Caravelle.
