GREENVILLE, S.C. — Michelin Americas announced today it has launched its new retread – the Michelin X MultiTM Energy D Pre-Mold – for regional and emerging super-regional applications.
It is SmartWay certified and the company claims it will deliver a 25% longer tread life than its competitors.
“With shorter routes trending in the trucking industry, customers are looking for tires and retreads that can handle mixed highway and regional use,” said Bianca Hogan, US marketing director for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “The new Michelin X Multi Energy D Pre-Mold retread complements our new tire offering in meeting those needs and performs especially well in 4×2 applications.”
The new retread features a dual energy compound. Michelin claims the top layer provides exceptional removal mileage, while the bottom layer allows the tread to run cool, minimizing internal casing temperatures for low rolling resistance and extended casing life.
The retread comes complete with Michelin’s inter-locking Matrix Siping, that helps with traction and wear.
It is available in three tread widths: 220, 230 and 240 – all with 21/32” tread depth.
