Michelin introduces new MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread
GREENVILLE, S.C.— Michelin Americas Truck Tires has rolled out its new MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread this week.
The new drive-position retread is optimized for long wear life, lasting durability and outstanding traction claims Michelin and is ideal for regional, medium-duty vehicles with 19.5 inch tires. It has attributes consistent with food and beverage, parcel package, and pick-up and delivery applications.
“Delivery fleets are faced with tough start-stop, turning and curbing conditions as they get their products to market each day,” said Adam Murphy, vice-president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “They demand a retread option that is as tough as the roads they drive on. The new MICHELIN MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread answers those demands with long, even wear and excellent traction.”
The new retread features an 18/32 inch tread depth for 190/200 tread sizes and a 20/32 inch tread depth for 210/220/230 tread sizes. The tread design minimizes the internal casing temperature to contribute to a longer casing and tread life. Wide, open-shoulder grooves provide outstanding wear and full-depth sipes deliver excellent traction.
