Boeing has just chosen Michelin as the second source of aftermarket nose and main tires for the 787. Michelin will offer a combination of traditional radial designs and new lightweight near zero growth construction tires, designed to reduce cuts and wear. The 787 will use 10 tires, two for the nose gear and eight for the main landing gear. Boeing uses Michelin tires on the 737NG and 747-400ER.
