Michelin Classic TRX

Another revolution

The first “low profile” tyre

Michelin’s invention of the TRX in 1975, allowed a more even distribution of tension in the whole tyre casing, hence the TR designation which stands for Tension Répartie (“distributed tension”). The TRX notably distinguished itself in Formula 1 racing with Renault and Alain Prost and also in the World Rally Championship on the Audi Quattro, 205 Turbo 16, R5 Turbo.
