Michelin's New Agilis 3 Tire Improves Your Truck's Braking, Fuel Economy


Michelin Philippines launches its Agilis 3 into the commercial light truck tire market, targeting commercial vehicle owners and businesses involved in the transport of people and goods. The newly launched tire aims to capture the larger high-potential, light-load segment with exceptional solutions in terms of safety, performance, and environment.

Key technologies and features incorporated in Michelin Agilis 3 include: 
  • Stone Ejectors, horizontal bars in the tread groove designed to minimize stone trapping, resulting in a tire that keeps customers’ downtime to a minimum and lowers their running costs;
  • Sidewall Shields, made with an abrasion-resistant rubber compound, that provide extra sidewall shoulder protection of 1.5mm thickness versus the current generation, without compromising the casing flexibility; 
  • Innovative Compound with higher density of silica & carbon black materials for improved wet grip, fuel saving, and mileage performances; 
  • U-Shape Grooves that allow a higher water clearance for lasting wet grip performance; 
  • Full Depth Sipes that help ensure good flexibility of the tread blocks, resulting in market-leading wet grip performance, both when new and when worn; and 
  • Undertread which keeps the operating temperature cooler, thus reducing fuel costs.
With the aforementioned technologies and features, the Michelin Agilis 3 delivers three outstanding benefits: shorter wet braking distance, 5 percent or up to 1.9 meters shorter when new, and 11 percent or up to 3.8 meters shorter when worn, when compared to its major competitors; superior mileage performance, 25 percent more mileage compared to its previous generation, with less downtime caused by tire damage; 12 percent superior rolling resistance, plus 90ml per 100km less fuel consumption and 228g/100km less CO2 emission, than average competitors.

  • 165/80R13 LT 90/88R
