Michelin Americas Truck Tires, a division of Michelin North America, Inc., announced the launch of its new MICHELIN X MultiTM Energy Z, a regional steer tire that meets U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay verified requirements. With a 15 per cent reduction in rolling resistance, the tire delivers industry leading fuel efficiency, as well as excellent longevity and a high degree of overall durability. The MICHELIN X Multi Energy Z will be available March 1 for fleets in the United States and Canada.
“Michelin is excited to again offer a no compromise truck tire solution this time for regional steer tires. The new MICHELIN X Multi Energy Z offers the industry’s best combination of fuel savings and mileage in a regional application.” said Ted Becker, vice president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “When combined with the MICHELIN X Multi Energy D drive tire, the MICHELIN X Multi Energy Z provides a complete SmartWay regional solution.”
Additionally, the X Multi Energy Z is ideal for the emerging super regional trucking application, which requires a tire that can withstand both irregular wear and scrub. The super-regional application is emerging due to changing logistical and transportation patterns.
The MICHELIN X Multi Energy Z tire is engineered with a dual compound tread and a new energy casing that provides low rolling resistance and long treads life. Outstanding handling is delivered by inter-locking Matrix sipes. Casing life is extended by curb guards and a rectangular bead bundle. The MICHELIN X Multi Energy Z tire is available in three sizes: 11R22.5 LRG, 11R22.5 LRH and 275/80R22.5 LRH.
