Michelin Targets Delivery Fleets With Latest Retread
Michelin Americas Truck Tires, a division of Michelin North America Inc., has introduced the Michelin MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread.
It's a drive-position retread optimized for long wear life, durability and traction for regional, medium-duty vehicles with 19.5-inch tires. Applications might include food and beverage, parcel package, and pick-up and delivery vehicles.
"Delivery fleets are faced with tough start-stop, turning and curbing conditions as they get their products to market each day," says Adam Murphy, vice president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. "They demand a retread option that is as tough as the roads they drive on. The new Michelin MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread answers those demands with long, even wear and excellent traction."
The Michelin MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread features an 18/32 inch tread depth for 190/200 tread sizes and a 20/32 inch tread depth for 210/220/230 tread sizes. The tread design minimizes the internal casing temperature to contribute to a longer casing and tread life.
