Michelin launches X Works drive tire for mixed-use trucks

Michelin North America, Inc. has launched X Works D, a new generation of its on-/off-road drive tire designed for the construction, energy, concrete and logging sectors operating in mixed-use conditions.

Full-tread-depth lateral groove tread patterns provide balance between stability for increased wear and improved rubber-to-void ratio for maximum traction, Michelin says. Teardrop sipes in the tire open as they wear, providing additional traction.

Michelin says the X Works D tire has a 15% longer tire life compared to the previous generation X Works XDY.

Four steel belts at the crown of the tire protect from shock, impact and road hazards for enhanced durability and puncture resistance. Stone ejectors and teardrop sipes incorporated around the center block fight stone retention and drilling. The company says the Michelin X Works D retains 25% fewer stones when new compared to the X Works XDY.

The new Michelin X Works D tire is available in the U.S. and Canada in 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 sizes in load range LRH.
