Historically, all models of Citroën 2CV were always originally fitted with Michelin tires. The history of the 2CV and Citroën is, moreover, intimately interlinked with that of the Clermont-Ferrand manufacturer, which was a very close industrial partner of André Citroën right from the company’s founding. It was Michelin that took over the company when it went bankrupt at the end of 1934, and it was also under the tire manufacturer's management that the TPV project was launched, which brought us the 2CV in 1948 (TPV stands for Toute Petite Voiture, or Very Small Car). Right from the first blueprints, it was always intended that the 2CV should be fitted with the Pilote 125 x 400 tire. That tire was still fitted until September 1959, when the vehicle’s wheel diameter was modified from 400 to 380 cm (15 inches). After that, the 2CV was equipped with the Pilote 135 x 380 - wider but smaller - for a brief period until July 1960, when the well-known Michelin X 125
x 380 (125 x 15) was adopted. This was to remain the original equipment of the 2CV saloon until the end of its production in July 1990. The tires of the 2CV vans were the same: when the 2CV AU was launched in February 1951, it was fitted with four Pilote 135 x 400 tires, which were subsequently replaced by the 135 x 380 in September 1959. The Michelin X 2CV tire - also sized at 135 x 380 - was mounted from September 1961 onwards. That tire was fitted on the AZU moder until its replacement in June 1964 by the Michelin X 125 x 380, which was the variant chosen for the 2CV saloon. The same 2CV tire sized 135 x 380 was also fitted on the AK 350 van that came out in April 1963, as well as on its replacement, the AKS 400, until the end of its production in March 1978. Naturally, as part of its 2CV tire range, 2CV Méhari Club Cassis supplies the historic Michelin tires, exactly identical to the original models. They give the car an excellent feel when driving, and their quality is still a reference. Additionally, they add value to 2CV saloons and vans, because they are completely identical to the Citroën specifications, just like the other original components made by 2CV Méhari Club - which is a non-negligible argument. Our online store offers - as a principal alternative to these tires - 2CV tires made by MCC, which are of unbeaten value for the price point. Comfort, road-holding and braking quality, low noise level, high wear resistance and - above all - very competitive pricing are just some of the selling points of these benchmark 2CV tires, and they are 2CV Méhari Club’s biggest sellers. They are available in several sizes: the 2CV 125R15
or 125x15 tire, the 2CV 135 x 15 or 135 x 15 tire, and the off-road and winter tire, which is also available as a 135R15 model. The latter tires are entirely made in France, are entirely remolded on a new carcass, and are part of the MCC range.
