Michelin North America Inc. has rolled out its new Agilis HD Z 19.5 tire, which will replace the Michelin XZE tire in two 19.5-inch sizes - 225/70R19.5 LRG and 245/70R19.5 LRH - in October.
Featuring a customized, five-rib, zig-zag tread that combines “excellent water evacuation with an aggressive pattern,” the Agilis HD Z 19.5 tire has been designed to help drivers maintain confidence over the life of the tire, according to Michelin officials.
“Urban and regional drivers rely heavily on their tires for performance,” says Jaye Young, B2B onroad marketing director, Michelin.
“Having vehicles down can cost owners and fleet managers thousands of dollars a day in lost deliveries.
“The new Michelin Agilis HD Z 19.5 tire is the natural evolution of our already best-selling Michelin XZE brand, offering 34% more miles, better wet grip and lower rolling resistance than the leading competitors. This makes the Agilis HD Z tire a tremendous investment for owners and managers looking to get the most out of their tires and maximize their investment.”
