Michelin Gives Up on PAX

Here is an article from tomorrow’s New York Times detailing Michelin’s recent decision to stop selling its PAX system to OEs. Michelin will continue to supply replacements and service the tires of customers who already have PAX.

According to the Times:

Michelin decided to discontinue PAX because automakers had several other choices in run-flat technology and there was “slow growth of the extended-mobility tire segment in general.” Ms. Mann said complaints from some consumers and lawsuits about problems — including high replacement costs and difficulties getting the tires repaired — did not play a role in the decision.
