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 just got my reply to my request.

These videos are not available in Canada yet. They offered to send me a booklet, to which I said: 'yes, please'.

& I haven't read the whole thread so I may be giving duplicate information. If so, sorry, enjoying the good weather and spending less time online.




& I, I took the road less travelled by.

Rodger,
Execellent information. Glad you found it and shared with us.

ADMIN: How about locking this one to the top. A real lifesaver

Bob,

It is stuck at the top, but will be rotated to some of the other forums. Probably Beginning RVing next.
