Michelin tire company is bringing the run flat tire to the masses with its new PAX system. The new Honda Odyssey Touring Edition comes standard with the tires that are now capable of sustaining the mass of an SUV or minivan after a blowout. Not only does Michelin think their PAX system is a winner but Goodyear, Pirelli, Toyo and Sumitomo have all acquired licenses from Michelin to use the technology. And while the tire may be more convenient when you get a flat, it won't be when you have to hunt down a PAX dealer. But scarcity has its perks. Michelin will replace the tire and wheel assembly for free…at least for now.
