Michelin Designs Nissan ZEOD RC's Tires for Le Mans

OYAMA-CHO, Japan (Oct. 21, 2013) – Nissan ZEOD RC’s invitation to participate at Le Mans next year from the Automobile Club de l’Ouest is a tremendous technological development opportunity for the automaker, but also a ready laboratory for next-generation tires. Michelin makes more than half the tires for vehicles competing at Le Mans, but the Garage 56 status, reserved for cars with new technology, has special allure.
