GENEVA, Switzerland (March 2)—Audi A.G. has selected Groupe Michelin's Pax integrated run-flat tire/wheel system as an optional fitment for its 2005 model year A6 midsize sedan, extending a fitment option from the current generation A6 line dating back to 2003.
Audi also offers a Pax option on its top-of-the-line A8 sedan, Michelin said.
Audi and Michelin went one step further for the new A6 fitment, however, jointly developing a new wheel design to match the car's sporty style, Michelin said. The Pax system is designed to provide a minimum zero pressure mobility of 125 miles at 50 mph.
The Pax system option will be available from September throughout Europe, in summer and winter versions: 235-660 R 460 A 98Y Pilot Primacy and 225-650 R 460 A 99H Pilot Alpin.
