Michelin Americas Truck Tires has introduced the Michelin MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread, a drive-position retread made for regional, medium-duty vehicles with 19.5-in. tires.
“Delivery fleets are faced with tough start-stop, turning and curbing conditions as they get their products to market each day,” said Adam Murphy, vice president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “They demand a retread option that is as tough as the roads they drive on. The new Michelin MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread answers those demands with long, even wear and excellent traction.”
The Michelin MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread features an 18/32-in. tread depth for 190/200 tread sizes and a 20/32-in. tread depth for 210/220/230 tread sizes. The tread design minimizes the internal casing temperature to contribute to a longer casing and tread life, the company said, adding that the wide, open-shoulder grooves provide outstanding wear and full-depth sipes deliver improved traction.
