CARAT DUCHATELET is a worldwide official distributor of MICHELIN PAX system.
MICHELIN PAX wheel assemblies tires are mounted on all CARAT DUCHATELET armoured vehicles based on Mercedes S Class. Michelin PAX tires handled the additional weight due to armouring.
The Michelin PAX is an automobile run-flat tire system that utilizes a special type of rim and tire to allow temporary use of a wheel if its tire is punctured, which significantly raises safety standards.
CARAT DUCHATELET has designed its own PAX rim together with Michelin for exclusive armouring conversion based on the Mercedes S Class V222
These Carat Duchatelet / Michelin PAX rims are approved for a weight of 1700 kg.
The core of Michelin’s PAX system is the semi-rigid ring installed onto the rim using special equipment. It provides support to the tire and its sidewall to allow emergency operation.
Due to the specifications of those tires, Carat Duchatelet is also able to furnish supply mounting machines as well as support and training.
