Stuckey Tyre Service has just been appointed Distributor for the highly popular Michelin Vintage car tyre range in Australia.
Michelin Australia Managing Director, Cedric Binoit said the move was prompted by increasing demand for the product in Australia. "Michelin is pleased to be able to offer this highly popular range again to our Australian customers," said Mr Binoit.
"Through Stuckey Tyre Service we are providing easier access and improved service to vintage car owners looking to fit Michelin tyres to their prized vehicles. Not only will they be able to keep the original look and feel of their vehicle, they will also benefit from improved safety and performance."
Michelin offers a range of tyres for classic cars which will fit a number of vehicles made between the 30s and the end of the 70s. Iconic patterns such as X-Stop, XAS, XWX and TRX form the basis for the updated range. In addition, Stuckey Tyre Service will also be supplying Michelin’s Competition Classic range which includes XAS FF, TB15 and TB5 patterns.

Our first shipment is due early May, and we should be able to satisfy most customers immediately with fresh stock, at more competitive prices than possible recently. No longer will car enthusiasts be forced to purchase tyres overseas; our aim is to supply and expertly fit the latest production tyres at internationally competitive prices”.
