The Michelin X Works D pre-mold retread now available in the U.S. and Canada

June 4, 2024
The retread features enhanced traction in both new and worn conditions, stone ejectors, and siping to minimize stone retention, improved wear mileage, and directional tread.

The Michelin X Works D pre-mold drive position retread is the latest offering in the Michelin Retread Technologies on-road/off-road line and is designed to be the next-generation retread optimized for enhanced wear performance, toughness, and traction in mixed and aggressive applications.

As a complement to the Michelin X Works D new tire, the retread features enhanced traction in both new and worn conditions, stone ejectors, and siping to minimize stone retention, improved wear mileage, and directional tread.

“The Michelin X Works D retread is designed specifically for the construction, energy, concrete, and logging industries,” said Pierluigi Cumo, VP of B2B marketing for Michelin North America. “These vehicles operate in aggressive and mixed-use environments, driving off pavement at least 10% of the time on a daily basis and subjecting tires to any number of harsh conditions.”

With its tread design, the Michelin X Works D pre-mold retread offers a mix of stability and traction. Its tread pattern is designed to help keep drivers in control on multiple surfaces even as the tire ages.

"The innovative Michelin X Works D pre-mold retread delivers outstanding traction, durability, and wear resistance for on- and off-road fleets, reflecting our dedication to sustainability now and into the future," Cumo said.  

In the U.S. and Canada, the new product is available in six sizes: 210 mm, 220 mm, 230 mm, 240 mm, 250 mm, and 270 mm—all with a tread depth of 30/32 inches.
