While passenger-car drivers have many tire options, both in terms of weather and performance, commercial-van drivers, not so much. Even worse, there is not much development in the design of these tires – it seems like the tread patterns have been stuck in time. However, there was a recent development that could change things in the commercial-van tire sector, and it comes from Michelin.
The French brand is known for pushing the envelope in the tire industry for over a century now. It not only brought the pneumatic tire to the world, but it also brought us radial tires and run-flat tires. Now, Michelin wants to reinvent the commercial-van tire with the Agilis CrossClimate. Michelin’s latest van tire is similar to all-weather tires for passenger cars, meaning it aims to provide excellent traction throughout the year.
