Michelin Americas Truck Tires has introduced the Michelin X One XZU S+ Pre-Mold retread designed for all position, wide-base single tires in waste and refuse truck applications.

The retread delivers 50% better wear life than the previous model Michelin X One ZXU S Pre-Mold retread and is designed with a winged tread for better shoulder protection in high-scrub applications.

The S+ Pre-Mold retread features a 29/32-inch deep tread depth and an optimized, straight rib design that improves wear. Co-Extrusion technology and a two-layer compound, reduces the casing temperature for better durability.

“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.”
