Michelin Introduces New XZA3®+ EVERTREAD™ Steer Tire, Guarantees 30 Percent More Miles


MICHELIN® XZA3+ EVERTREAD Tire Users "Get More Road" with No Compromise

GREENVILLE, S.C. - (June 9, 2011) – Trucking fleets and owner-operators who want more miles out of their steer tires while still saving fuel can now take advantage of the new MICHELIN® XZA3®+ EVERTREAD steer tire. The EPA SmartWaySM verified tire delivers fuel savings the industry has come to expect from Michelin's line of steer tires while also guaranteeing 30 percent more miles than the competition.

"Michelin is always looking to build on our existing industry-leading products and bring to market new technologies that deliver the next level of performance without compromise," said Ted Becker, vice president of marketing, Michelin Americas Truck Tires. "The XZA3+ EVERTREAD tire, with its use of Michelin's new patent pending Dual Compound Tread, is proof of this idea. In fact, Michelin is so confident in the XZA3EVERTREAD tire that we guarantee fleet and owner-operators will get more road than competitive tires."

The new steer tire is guaranteed to last at least 30 percent longer than the competition in long-haul applications. For complete details on the guarantee, visit the Michelin Americas Truck Tires website.

The XZA3+ EVERTREAD tire is able to deliver significantly longer wear life due to Michelin's new generation of Co-Ex Technology, the patent pending Dual Compound Tread. This technology allows tire designers to utilize multiple rubber compounds at different places in the tread. One compound is specifically engineered to control tread stiffness and stress to reduce irregular wear, delivering unrivaled tread life without compromising other characteristics. Another compound delivers ultra fuel-efficiency and keeps the tire's operating temperatures low, guarding the casing for retreading. The tire also features a three-retread limited warranty. This warranty further demonstrates the advantage of the Dual Compound Tread, as well as the robust casing integrity through the enhanced inner liner, bead area and rectangular bead bundle.

The new generation XZA3+ EVERTREAD tire continues to provide the optimum handling and responsiveness in both dry and wet conditions that helped the previous generation MICHELIN® XZA3® tire earn billions of miles of driver satisfaction. The XZA3EVERTREAD tire is now available in North America in four G-load range sizes: 11R22.5, 275/80R22.5, 11R24.5 and 275/80R24.5; as well as two H-load range sizes: 11R22.5 and 275/80R22.5.
