Michelin drive tire up for mixed environments

by Today's Trucking

Michelin’s X Works D drive tire for on/off-road environments is coming to support those who face the mixed conditions associated with construction, energy, concrete, and logging work.

Four steel belts at the crown help to protect the tire from impact and road hazards, while stone ejectors and sipes around the center blocks fight stone retention and drilling. The tire retains 25% fewer stones when compared to its predecessor, the X Works XDY, the company says.

Traction comes courtesy of full-tread-depth lateral groove tread patterns and improved rubber-to-void ratios. The teardrop-shaped sipes in the tire also open as the wear to offer additional traction.

The X Works D is also said to add 15% to the tire life seen with the X Works XDY.

The tire comes in 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 sizes in load range LRH. And it’s backed by a six month road hazard guarantee.

  • I like to buy there tires again,but they have priced them self out of the market. Why will I spend 700 too 800 dollars per tire that gets my 150000 miles a year. I can spend the same money on 3 off shore tires and get over 200000 miles. The last set mich tires I bought for my tire turned into eggs after 80000 miles and cost me over 20000 dollars to rebush my super b s.
