Michelin expands X One tire applications
Aug 1, 2008 12:00 PM
Michelin Americas Truck Tires has expanded its line of wide single tires to include on-/off-road applications. The Michelin X One XZY3 tire is an all-position radial tire designed for weight savings and fuel savings in on-/off-road operations.
This tire offers a long tread life using a special compound with chip and cut resistance needed for an off-road application. With an original tread depth of 23/32", the tire's flat and stable contact patch reduces irregular wear thanks to Michelin Infini-Coil Technology. This technology features a quarter-of-a-mile of steel cable wrapped circumferentially around the casing to eliminate casing growth.
Enhanced protection from stone drilling is provided by variable-pitch groove walls and groove bottom protectors in the center grooves. The X One XZY3 tire provides a reinforced bead package with a wide metallic chafer that leads to great bead durability and resistance to heat. The aggressive shoulder design delivers superior wet and soft soil traction, while Michelin's co-extrusion rubber technology provides cooler on-road operating temperatures at speeds up to 75 mph. The X One XZY3 tire is available in a 445/55R22.5 size.
