    Michelin, the french company, world leader in the tires domain, and world champion in Formula 1 with Renault, got a contract with US Air Force.

    Then, the US fight planes will have tires brought by Michelin Aircraft Tires Company. Lockheed Martin will help Michelin to send all the tires everywhere in USA (48 hours) and in the world (96 hours).

    The US Navy is also equiped with Michelin tires, and for the moment, 98% of satisfaction for the delivery periods.

    Do the tires only move in reverse? (assuming the enemy is attacking from the front)

    well, if you want to know this, ask the US navy pilots. And ask the US Army vehicules drivers, they'll answer to you.

    then, if you're correct, you'ld can say that if USA make a withdraw from Iraq, it would be the fault of the french tires...

    How do you confuse a French Soldier? Give him a rifle and ask him to shoot it

    What's the difference between a Frenchwoman and a werewolf?

    The Frenchwoman is not quite as hairy but the werewolf smells
