Michelin Americas Truck Tires launched two more sizes of the Michelin XZA3+ steer tire to address heavier tractor weights. The tire comes in two load range H sizes to address additional weight without a change in tire performance.
The two new sizes are 11R24.5 and 275/80R24.5 and are reinforced with additional steel belts for added carrying capacity. The XZA3+ also includes sizes in load range G as well as 11R22.5 and 275/80R22.5 sizes which come in G and H.
The XZA3+ is designed to be fuel efficient and has U.S. Environmental Protection Agency SmartWay verification. The tire is backed by Michelin’s seven-year, 700,000 mile or 3-retread warranty.
"The expansion of the Michelin XZA3+ line provides a solution for today's evolving tractor equipment and aids in reducing greenhouse gas emissions," said Bianca Hogan, director of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires.
