Michelin Expands Latest SmartWay-Verified X ONE Tire and Retread Offering

 New MICHELIN X One Multi Energy T tire and retread
deliver breakthrough reduction in irregular wear for regional operations

 

GREENVILLE, S.C., JULY 14, 2015 - Michelin Americas Truck Tires, a division of Michelin North America, Inc., 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 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 percent reduction in rolling resistance (1). In addition to microsipes and a solid shoulder to fight irregular wear, the retread has 15/32nds tread depth for outstanding removal mileage.

“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.”

The new MICHELIN X One Multi Energy T offering replaces the existing MICHELIN® X One® XTE products.
