Michelin Americas Truck Tires is offering the Michelin X Works Z all-position tire designed for mixed on/off road applications in demanding environments.
The Michelin X Works Z features a wider protector ply and thicker layer of cushion gum than comparable tires to provide extra protection and casing durability. The tire also offers an increase in removal mileage and is backed by Michelin’s six-month, road hazard guarantee.
Its casing features a groove-to-groove protector ply to provide protection all the way to the outer grooves and thick, shock-absorbing cushion gum for extra protection against impact shocks. The tire also features a dual-layered defense against stone retention and stone drilling with V-channels and groove bottom protectors.
The sidewall features a double treatment of TW6 Ozone Resistor for increased protection against ozone cracking and thick sidewalls to fight impacts. The tire is available now in 11R22.5, 12R22.5 and 11R24.5 sizes in load range H and a 315/80R22.5 size in load range L. A 12R24.5 size in load range H will launch at a later date.
