You hit a hole in the road and failed to get around it. Stop by and exit the vehicle to assess the damage. The impact damaged the aluminum alloy and the tire. What now?
French Michelin tire maker and one of the world’s leading wheel manufacturers Maxion Wheels a few years ago devised a flexible wheel technology called Acorus designed specifically for this type of road problem.
The innovation was named after Acorus calamus, a swampy, but not torn, marsh plant.
The flexible alloy wheel design is compatible with all passenger tires on the market and is not limited to Michelin brand tires. This avoids costly damage caused by a hole or other obstruction on the road, both on low profile tires and on larger wheels (over 19 inches).
