Filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina, the suit alleges that two tire models –the Atturo AZ600 and the Thunderer Ranger 007 – infringe the company’s Patent U.S. D483,322 for a tread design, Michelin said.

“This lawsuit demonstrates Michelin’s legal strategy to protect the intellectual property created by its 6,000 research and development employees and an annual R&D investment of about $700 million dollars,” said Paul Grosskopf, Michelin vice president of research and development.

The Atturo brand tires in question are manufactured by Svizz-One in Thailand for the U.S. market.
