Michelin Selfseal tyres OE on new Ford Explorer
In the USA, Ford Motor is supplying Michelin Selfseal tyres for the new Ford Explorer. The 2020 Explorer is the first SUV to offer Michelin Selfseal tyres, according to Ford.
According to the company, the tyres seal 90 per cent of tread punctures up to a quarter-inch in diameter and help drivers avoid potentially dangerous side-of-the-road repairs, lost time and loss of vehicle control.
Selfseal tyres are standard on the new Explorer Platinum and Explorer Limited Hybrid four-wheel-drive models, and optional on Explorer Limited two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive models. The size for all models is 255/55 R20.
However, all Explorer models are still equipped with a spare tyre.
