Automotive News: '05 Odyssey to get run-flat tires
 Date: August 03, 2004 11:18
 Submitted by:  JeffX
 Source: Automotive News
 Credibility Rating: 9


In this week's issue of Automotive News it is reported that the '05 Odyssey will use Michelin's PAX System of run-flat tires. The PAX system consists of specially designed wheels, tires, a flexible internal support ring (this bears much of the load if the tire loses pressure), and a tire pressure monitoring system. It is not known at this time whether the run-flat tires will be standard across the range of Odyssey trim levels, or if it will be reserved for the upper models such as EX or Touring. A rival system from Bridgestone is fitted on all-wheel-drive models of Toyota's Sienna minivans.
