Michelin Chosen As Standard Original Equipment Fitment For 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

DETROIT, Jan. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Michelin, the world's leading tire manufacturer, marks a milestone at the 2013 North American International Auto Show with the announcement that, for the first time, MICHELIN® tires are the exclusive original equipment tire on the complete line-up of 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray models.

All 2014 Corvette Stingrays will come equipped with the MICHELIN® Pilot® Super Sport® ZP tire, an ultra-high performance tire that was co-developed by Michelin and Corvette through a relationship that began on the racetracks of the American Le Mans Series.

Being selected as the fitment on the 2014 Corvette Stingray marks a significant achievement for Michelin after the tire giant also gained tire fitments for the 2009 Corvette ZR1 and 2011 Corvette Z06.

"The MICHELIN Pilot Super Sport ZP tire exemplifies Michelin's commitment to innovation and our aim to deliver the best possible performances in every tire we make," said John Moloney, vice president of original equipment marketing at Michelin North America. "The proof is in the performance; owners of the 2014 Corvette Stingray will enjoy a tire that is tuned specifically for their vehicle and delivers the road-handling, grip, cornering ability and progressivity of drive they expect."

Michelin earned the opportunity to outfit the 2014 Corvette Stingray and then worked closely with the Corvette vehicle development team to design and engineer a tire that matches the vehicle performance. During the vehicle development process, Michelin performed more than 12,000 hours in tire design using state-of-the-art computer tire modeling and completing thousands of miles of subjective test driving. Harnessing its full arsenal of experience and technology, the company developed two MICHELIN Pilot® Super Sport® ZP tires unique to the Corvette Stingray, one for the standard car and another for the Corvette Stingray with Z51 Performance Package.
