Michelin introduces new wide-base trailer tire, retread
GREENVILLE, S.C. — Michelin has introduced a new wide-base trailer tire it says offers reductions in irregular wear and improved fuel economy.
The new Michelin X One Multi Energy T is billed as the company’s next-generation single trailer tire. It’s SmartWay-verified and available in size 455/55R22.5, complementing the previously launched 445/50R22.5.
Michelin says X One wide-base tires can increase payload by more than 700 lbs compared to traditional duals.
Also available is the Michelin X One Multi Energy T Pre-Mold retread, in sizes 375/425 and 385/435. This tire produces 7% less rolling resistance than the X One XTE, which it replaces.
“Whether in its first life or as a retread, the Michelin X One Multi Energy T offers the right balance of fuel efficiency, weight savings and long tread life in regional applications,” said Bianca Hogan, director of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “The latest X One introductions continue our leadership in wide-base single innovation and provide an attractive total cost of ownership throughout the tire lifecycle.”
