Michelin introduces new wide-base retread for refuse applications

by Truck News

GREENVILLE, S.C. — Michelin has introduced a new X One XZUS+ Pre-Mold retread it says delivers 50% greater wear life, enhanced durability and scrub resistance for refuse operations compared to its previous XZUS retread.

The retread features a special winged tread for greater shoulder protection in high-scrub applications, Michelin claims. It also features a 29/32-inch tread depth and a straight rib design.

“With the demanding conditions in urban areas, waste and refuse customers are looking for retreads that can handle these punishing conditions and reduce their cost-per-hour,” said Adam Murphy, vice-president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “The new Michelin X ONE XZU S+ Pre-Mold retread exceeds those demands with incredible wear life, even when trucks are continuously starting, stopping and turning as they pick up waste in city areas.”
