Michelin says advanced casing technology significantly reduces irregular tire wear in the new Michelin X One Multi Energy T trailer tire.

Michelin North America Inc. has launched a wide-base single trailer tire for regional operations with a new casing design to reduce irregular wear. The new Michelin X One Multi Energy T is SmartWay-verified.

Michelin says the latest addition to the X One family of tires delivers a significant reduction in irregular wear and outstanding fuel economy while allowing fleets to carry more than 700 pounds of additional freight versus dual applications.

The Michelin X One Multi Energy T is engineered with the company’s Advanced Casing Technology design, which changes the casing shape of the tire during use to reduce irregular wear. This results in a contact patch with a consistent footprint, regardless of payload weight.

Other features include solid shoulder architecture that delivers significant wear improvement and wide Infini-Coil Technology that provides a consistent footprint for improved removal mileage.

The company says compared to the Michelin X One XTE, the Michelin X One Multi Energy T also delivers a 15% reduction in rolling resistance for outstanding fuel economy.

"Regional fleets that focus on fuel and weight will benefit from the performance of the new Michelin X One Multi Energy T offering,” says said Adam Murphy, vice president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “This tire also fights irregular wear, which is especially important for trailer tires, as fleets often experience this issue in both dual and wide base single tires.

“Michelin continues our leadership in wide base singles by introducing another innovation that significantly improves our customers’ bottom line. It’s a no compromise solution that provides the weight savings, fuel efficiency and removal mileage that regional fleets need."

The Michelin X One Multi Energy T tire replaces the Michelin X One XTE. The new tire is available now in the 445/50R22.5 size. The 455/50R22.5 size will be available early 2015.
