Michelin adds drive tire retread to X One line

March 28, 2012

Michelin Americas Truck Tires (MAST) introduced its X One XDN2 Pre-Mold retread at the recent Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, Ky.

The retread is designed "for fleets and owner-operators who want the fuel and weight savings of a wide single with the traction of a lug-style tread.

“X One wide single tires continue to offer huge benefits to the trucking industry,” says Ted Becker, vice president of marketing for MAST. "The Michelin X One XDN2 retread combined with the weight and fuel savings of the Michelin X One casing offers even better grip and fuel efficiency.”

The popular all-weather drive tread design for the X One XDN2 has a 27/32-inch tread depth. It delivers "superior traction and optimized mileage," according to the company.

The retread’s Matrix Siping Technology is designed to provide exceptional traction on dry and slippery surfaces. Full-depth sipes supply excellent levels of traction, while the three-dimensional Matrix sipes lock together for the stability normally associated with solid tread blocks.

The tread’s wide, open shoulder grooves deliver additional traction balanced with tread life.

Michelin also showcased its new Michelin X Multi Engery D drive tire for regional and super regional applications at MATS. For more information, click here.
