GREENVILLE, S.C. – Michelin Americas Truck Tires announced the launch of two new sizes of Michelin XZ3+ tires – 11R24.5 and 275/80R24.5 both load range H and reinforced with added steel belts for more carrying capacity.
The tire is fuel-efficient and is SmartWay verified.
“The expansion of the Michelin XZA3+ line provides a solution for today’s evolving tractor equipment and aids in reducing greenhouse gas emissions – factors that are important to Michelin, original equipment manufacturers and the industry as a whole,” said Bianca Hogan, director of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “Along with the ability to handle heavier tractor weights, the XZA3+ will continue to deliver the fuel savings, tread longevity and casing retreadability fleets expect from this proven tire.”
The company says the line is being expanded to meet market demands which require steer tires to handle heavier tractor weights.
