Michelin XAS 165R15 86V

Michelin XAS 165R15 86V

If the X was revolutionary in tyre terms, the XAS was the next great leap forward for Michelin. The ‘AS’ stands for ‘asymetrique’ or asymmetrical as we say in Blighty. Michelin boffins worked out that different areas of the tyre have entirely different roles, so designed the XAS to reflect this. The result is a tyre with much-improved stability, grip and road holding and it has one of the best-looking tread patterns you can buy. There are twelve sizes in the XAS range with some sizes having a FF (Formula France) version with a softer, grippier compound. This 165VR15 is Porsche-approved N0 fitment and fits all 356, 912, 914 and 914/6 models. It also fits the short-lived 901 of 1964. This was the number Porsche had planned to give its 356 replacement before Peugeot intervened with a law suit, that’s why we have the 911.
