Michelin North America is launching the X One Line EnergyD2 tire for fleets on May 1, designed to reinforce fuel savings superiority versus dual tires. The tire is available for line haul, dry van truck load and refrigerated truck load applications.
The tire, available in a 445/50R22.5 L size, has a 20/32 tread depth. It is a directional tire for the first half of its life, providing improved resistance to irregular wear and long tread life.
The tire’s design produces less tread squirm and provides energy conservation for fuel efficiency. Its advanced tread compounds save up to $2,317 per year in fuel, achieving the SmartWay standard.
Michelin’s Regenion evolving tread design gives the tire stability in all weather conditions. The straight, pass-through grooves have features that appear as the tire wears, helping give traction throughout the life of the tire. The rectangular bead minimizes fatigue to extend casing life, which is designed for maximum retreadability. As a wide-base single configuration, it enables a tractor trailer to carry up to 432 more pounds of payload versus dual tires.
