While British motorists will be largely familiar with the Michelin brand, they may not be aware that the French manufacturer sells tyres under a range of different brand names, including Kleber (once tyre suppliers to Concorde) and the popular off-road brand BF Goodrich.
The French company is the worlds second largest tyre manufacturer and the largest in Europe. Michelin has a extensive history with motorsport, having competed in Formula 1, MotoGP and endurance racing for many years. In 2009 Michelin supplied tyres for 41 of the 55 cars entered in Le Mans.
Michelin tyres enjoy a good reputation for high performance, with products consistently offering very good grip and handling, as well as a relatively high resistance to aquaplaning. Availability is usually good, with tyres available from national and regional chains, independent retailers and online fitters.
BF Goodrich tyres are a mid-range offering and generate very good grip in dry conditions. Buyers may find it harder to source BF Goodrich products compared to mainstream Michelins, with supply usually limited to online and independent retailers.
