Michelin Americas Truck Tires launched the Michelin X Line Energy Z tire for line-haul steer applications. The new tire replaces the Michelin XZA3+ and is SmartWay verified. The Michelin X Line Energy Z features a patented dual-energy compound tread. The top layer controls tread stiffness and stress to reduce irregular wear. Decoupling grooves and directional miniature sipes promote even tire wear, Michelin explained in a press release. The bottom layer provides ultra-fuel efficiency and retreadability to minimize internal casing temperatures for low rolling resistance and extended casing life.
Providing retreadability and a casing designed for endurance, the Michelin X Line Energy Z comes with the 7/7/3 manufacturer’s limited casing warranty. This includes coverage against defects in workmanship and materials for 700,000 miles, seven years or three retreads from the date of manufacture when retreaded by an authorized Michelin Retread Technologies (MRT) dealer. The tire is available now in 11R22.5, 275/80R22.5, 11R24.5 and 275/80R24.5 sizes in both G and H load ranges.
With the release of the new tire, Michelin is offering a mileage guarantee—if the tire does not provide the advertised mileage, Michelin offers customers twice the money back of the difference between this and any comparable tire.
