Wow, that is some great information. The fact that Michelin would go through the trouble of making those videos demondtrates a commitment to safety. Something I'll have to consider with my next purchase.
I think the greatest benefit I got from the Critical Factor video was seeing the shot of a tire blowing while running along the yellow line. I noticed that there was less than 6" of variation in the path of the tire. I know the driver was experienced, but it demonstrates that you don't automatically go flying off the road just because a tire goes which certainly eases the mind.
But they didn't mention the alternative where the vehicle occupants all bail out while wearing the newly introduced, inflatable rubber suit. It's a sectionalized outfit that pretty much looks like the Michelin Tire Man!!!
I'm the lucky one; my wife is the one who married the idiot!! ">
