Understanding how your tractor tyres are made

The crop growing cycle at your farm determines which vehicles you use.
Your tractor and trailer tyres impact your soils, your harvests, your fuel consumption and your comfort – which is why, to improve their performance, we test new materials and structures with you and for you.

For your harvests, we innovate constantly

Our engineers create new versions of agricultural tyres that incorporate your experience and feedback. To design them, they test the best materials and the best manufacturing processes.
Cooperation between our R&D teams worldwide also helps us to continually improve the durability of your tyres, their traction capability and their footprint… as well as reducing vibration for a more comfortable ride.

For quality tyres

Farming is full of unpredictability, and you need peace of mind. Each tyre that leaves our factories is manufactured to the highest standard, so it delivers the best service for as long as possible. Its complex 20-component assembly requires 15 production steps. Each step is rigorously checked, and the final quality inspection ensures that the tyre delivered to you is of flawless quality.

Where are my agricultural tyres made?

Where your tyres are manufactured

The MICHELIN production sites in Olsztyn (Poland), Troyes (France), Valladolid (Spain) and João (Brazil) supply all the leading manufacturers of agricultural vehicles and tyre dealers.

Each MICHELIN factory is a specialist

The Olsztyn production site (Poland) makes tyres for low- and medium-power tractors. It primarily produces front tyres (which are smaller than rear tyres) and those in the MICHELIN Compact Line range designed for diggers, loaders and telescopic handlers.

The Troyes production site (France) makes tyres for medium-power tractors (up to 1.95m high). These narrow models are suitable for your row crop vehicles and spraying work.

The Valladolid production site (Spain) makes large tyres (up to 2.30m high) for high-powered vehicles such as combine harvesters and self-propelled spreaders, which have very high loads and speeds.

The João production site (Brazil) makes our agricultural tyres for the South American and North American markets.

Want to know where your tyres come from?

Two letters identify where your tyres were made. This marking is mandatory, but its position isn’t. Most manufacturers put it on the sidewall, but some plant codes are placed discreetly on the bead, and are invisible once the tyre is fitted.
Since tyre sizes differ, your front MICHELIN tyres may come from Troyes in France and your rear tyres from Valladolid in Spain!

Want to know when your tyres were made?

Four numbers on the sidewall show the date of manufacture.
A MICHELIN tyre with the code 2117 was manufactured in the 21st week of 2017.
