GREENVILLE, S.C., June 11, 2024 – The Michelin Agilis HD Grip D tire, the latest in the Agilis family line, is engineered to provide reliable traction and handling in various weather conditions, including rain and snow, ensuring year-round driving confidence.

The Agilis HD Grip D tire is a competitive traction-oriented drive tire. It was designed as a traction-oriented product for all seasons, and it meets the requirements to be marked 3 Peak Mountain Snowflake for severe snow traction. 

“The Michelin Agilis HD Grip D tire is exceptionally fitted for Class 3-6 work trucks,” said Pierluigi Cumo, Vice President of B2B Marketing for Michelin North America, Inc. “Michelin provides a 20% more mileage guarantee  on the mileage performance and a 60-day satisfaction guarantee1. Additionally, this tire provides up to 35% better snow traction performance than leading competitors. ”

The Agilis HD Grip D tire was developed to withstand the torque of a drive position and provide excellent traction through all seasons. In some regional and on/off road applications, the Agilis HD Grip D tire can be used in all positions, especially on 4X4 vehicles. The Agilis HD Grip D tire is also retreadable. Michelin Retread Technologies has many products that fit these 19.5” casings, but popular drive tire retreads include: MD XDN2, XDS2+, XDE M/S, and XDHT. 

"The innovative Michelin Agilis HD Grip D tire allows customers to navigate with confidence, excellent grip, and control," said Cumo. “It has been designed to withstand the demands of the streets with a tough, retreadable casing. It also can be used in certain on/off-road applications.”

The Agilis HD Grip D tire is planned for a June 1 launch in United States and Mexico and July 1 in Canada. For more information on the Michelin Agilis Grip HD D tire, go to business.michelinman.com.
