Michelin releases new regional X One trailer tire

Michelin North America, Inc. is launching the Michelin X One Multi T trailer tire.

Launching for the North American regional market, Michelin says the tire is designed for high-scrub, weight-sensitive applications. The X One Multi T is available for spread and multi-axle trailer fitment configurations.

The X One Multi T tire is targeted for weight-sensitive applications such as flatbed and tanker segments. As a wide base single configuration, the company says it enables a tractor-trailer to carry up to 289 more lbs. of payload vs. dual tires.

According to the company, benefits of the tire include: a dual-compound tread that resists scrub and a cooler internal layer that helps maximize casing life; a directional tread design that incorporates matrix siping and micro-sipes to reduce irregular wear; variable groove walls partnered with groove bottom protectors that provide improved resistance to stone drilling; and curb guards that provide sidewall protection.

The Michelin X One Multi T tire is available in a 445/50R22.5 tire size.
