A pair of Michelin Agilis van tyres fitted to a vehicle owned by Cumbria-based courier Bryan Davidson have clocked up 353,000 miles.
The 215/75 R 16C Agilis tyres were fitted to the rear axle of Mr Davidson’s 2004 Citroen Relay LWB Hi-Roof van from new and have just been changed with the odometer reading 353,000 miles. The fronts lasted around 120,000 miles.
Mr Davidson operates his light haulage business from Cumbria and transports loads of up to one tonne around the UK and Europe.
Commenting on the tyres’ performance, Mr Davidson said: ‘I am amazed by the mileage achieved and there was actually still a reasonable amount of tread-life left in the tyres. The only reason I changed them was that I got a puncture in the left rear and decided to change the pair for peace-of-mind.
‘Obviously I replaced them with another pair of Agilis tyres which were fitted by my local distributor’
The Michelin Agilis range includes various sizes to suit the majority of vans on the road and it also includes the Agilis Alpin winter version, designed for use where mobility in difficult driving conditions is an important factor.
