Michelin Expands Wide-Base Line with X One Multi T Tire
Michelin North America Inc. has launched the Michelin X One Multi T wide-base truck tire for high-scrub, weight-sensitive, spread and multi-axle trailer applications.
Adam Murphy, vice president, B2B marketing, Michelin, says the tire - which is available in North America - is designed to deliver "weight savings and scrub resistance.
“This new Michelin X One Multi T is the trailer-tire solution for weight savings and scrub resistance. The deeper tread helps provide superior tread life to keep cargo rolling and delivering profits.”
The product's "dual-compound tread resists scrub and a cooler internal layer helps maximize casing life," according to Michelin officials.
In addition, the tire's directional tread design "incorporates matrix siping and micro-sipes to reduce irregular wear. Variable groove walls partnered with groove bottom protectors provide improved resistance to stone drilling. Curb guards provide sidewall protection."
The Michelin X One Multi T tire is available in size 445/50R22.5.
