Michelin Americas Truck Tires, a division of Michelin North America, introduced the Michelin X ONE XZUS+ Pre-Mold retread — an all-position, next-generation wide-base single — for waste and refuse trucks that operate in demanding urban environments.
According to the company, this retread delivers up to 50% greater wear life and is designed with a special winged tread for maximum shoulder protection in high-scrub applications.
“With the demanding conditions in urban areas, waste and refuse customers are looking for retreads that can handle these punishing conditions and reduce their cost-per-hour,” said Adam Murphy, vice president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “The new Michelin X ONE XZU S+ Pre-Mold retread exceeds those demands with incredible wear life, even when trucks are continuously starting, stopping and turning as they pick up waste in city areas.”
The retread features a 29/32 in. deep tread depth and a straight rib design that contributes to “outstanding wear,” the company said. Co-Extrusion technology and a two-layer compound minimize the casing temperature for enhanced durability, Michelin added.
