Michelin XVS-P: Design
The Michelin XVS-P has all the advantages of the asymmetric Michelin XVS. However the P in XVS-P stands for protection. Indicative of the heavy-duty raised curbing band on the outer sidewall. This was added to protect the wheel or hubcap from damage due to kerbside friction, a key feature to think about when choosing a tire to fit your Borrani wheels. The Michelin XVS-P tires are still speed rated up to 130 mph (H rated).
There are presently only 2 tires in the Michelin XVS-P design. However the 235/70HR15 XVS-P is a remarkable tire that when fitted to a Rolls Royce of the 70's and 80's will dramatically improve the handling of these cars. The improved directional stability offered by the asymmetric XVS-P really suits these cars.
We also recommend fitting the 185HR15 Michelin XVS-P to Citroen DS 21 Inj. and DS 23 Inj. models but can also be fitted to other later DS models to great effect.
