Michelin retreads now SmartWay verified

Oct. 15, 2012

Three Michelin retreads have been added to the EPA SmartWay list of verified technologies with four more in the verification process at this point, Michelin Americas Truck Tires said.

Michelin’s SmartWay verified retreads include the XT-1 AT Pre-Mold for trailer applications and XDA2 19 AT Pre-Mold and XDA2 23 AT Pre-Mold for drive axle applications.

According to Michelin, the following retreads are undergoing the verification process: the X One XDA-HT Pre-Mold and XDA2 23 AT Custom-Mold for drive axle applications, and X One XTA Pre-Mold and XT-1 Custom Mold for trailer applications. 

“Retreads represent about half of the tires on the road. Michelin agrees with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay program’s overall strategy of including retread products to reduce the fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of line-haul Class 8 trucks. Michelin low-rolling resistance retreads reduce fleet operating costs by increasing fuel efficiency and extending tire life,” said Ted Becker, vice president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires.

The retreads are also CARB compliant.
