A Brief History of Michelin Tires

Last updated 4 years ago

Michelin makes some of the most well-known and respected tires in the world. Established in 1907 in New Jersey, Michelin produced tires and tubes there for decades. In the 1950s Michelin relocated to New York City, and in the ’60s and ’70s the company saw enormous growth, in large part because of the success of its radial tires. In 1988 the company relocated to South Carolina. One year later, Michelin purchased Uniroyal-Goodrich Tire Company, a move that made Michelin the largest tire manufacturer in the world. In the ’90s, Michelin built a reputation for offering the best value tires in nearly every consumer category.
