The Michelin XDN2 Pre-Mold retread is designed as an all-weather drive retread and is optimized for exceptional traction and mileage. The retread features the company’s proprietary Matrix Siping Technology, designed to deliver outstanding winter and wet traction from more than 1,300 biting edges.

The retread also is engineered with a two-layer compound; the top layer designed for wear and traction, and the bottom layer for maintaining cool internal casing temperatures for longer tread and casing life. The retread’s wide, open shoulder grooves are designed to deliver added traction without compromising tread life.

The retread, intended for longhaul and regional use, currently is available in 220, 230 and 240 mm sizes. For more information, go to www.michelin-us.com.
