Michelin debuts latest refuse tire

Michelin Americas Truck Tires’ XZUS2 for refuse applications is designed to deliver up to a 20 percent increase in removal miles over its predecessor, the XZUS tire, while the XZUS 280 retread size completes the XZUS Pre-Mold retread line for the most commonly used sizes in refuse applications.

The XZUS2, available in a 315/80R22.5 size, features Co-Ex Technology designed to increase wear life; the technology combines a scrub-resistant compound for long tread life and a cool base tread compound to help reduce temperatures in the crown area and preserve the casing. For application-specific protection, the tire features a robust shoulder design and protector ribs, as well as an optimized bead design to help improve retreadability.

The XZUS Pre-Mold retread line also comes with Co-Ex Technology.
