Paris - Michelin has stopped further research on the PAX runflat system.Â Philippe Denimal, research director at the Group's Technology Centre, told ERJ, "Today we do not intend to develop a new PAX. simply because there is no big market demand. The market demand is insufficient to justify the expense."
He added, "PAX is a long story for us. When we launched it, we were hoping for a big market development. In fact the real market for zero pressure tyres is limited to some small percent of total sales in Europe. "
