Compangie Generale des Etablissements Michelin, otherwise known as Michelin, is a French company known world-wide for its tires. Michelin was incorporated in 1888 as a manufacturer of bicycle tires. As automobiles began to rise in popularity, Michelin began producing auto tires. Michelin is responsible for many innovations in the automobile tire industry, including the radial tire they developed in 1946. In 1988, Michelin acquired American rival B.F. Goodrich. In 1990, Michelin acquired Uniroyal. Michelin is currently the number two tire manufacturer in the world behind Bridgestone.

Michelin makes tires for every application, including family cars/minivans, luxury cars, sports cars, SUVs/light trucks and winter tires. Michelin tires are well known for their durability.
