Michelin Americas Truck Tires, a division of Michelin North America, is launching the 455/55R22.5 MICHELIN X One MultiTM Energy T, a next generation wide-base single trailer tire for regional operations that is U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay-verified.
“Complementing the previously launched 445/50R22.5, this addition to the X One family delivers a significant reduction in irregular wear and outstanding fuel economy, all while allowing fleets to carry more than 700 pounds of additional freight versus dual applications,” the company said.
The MICHELIN X One Multi Energy T Pre-Mold retread is also now available in two sizes – 375/425 and 385/435. The trailer retread is SmartWay-verified and features Advanced Technology Compounds for a 7% reduction in rolling resistance, the company said.
“In addition to microsipes and a solid shoulder to fight irregular wear, the retread has 15/32nds tread depth for outstanding removal mileage,” according to the company.
"Whether in its first life or as a retread, the MICHELIN X One Multi Energy T offers the right balance of fuel efficiency, weight savings and long tread life in regional applications," said Bianca Hogan, director of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. "The latest X One introductions continue our leadership in wide-base single innovation and provide an attractive total cost of ownership throughout the tire lifecycle."
