Michelin's next generation on-/off-road, drive tire optimized for exceptional traction, toughness and wear performance. The tire is designed for the construction, energy, concrete, and logging sectors operating in mixed use conditions. The Michelin X Works D tire features full-tread-depth lateral groove tread patterns provide optimum balance between stability for increased wear and improved rubber-to-void ratio for maximum traction. Teardrop sipes in the tire open as they wear, providing additional traction.
It has, Michelin said, 15% longer tire life compared to X Works XDY. Four steel belts at the crown of the tire protect from shock, impact and road hazards for enhanced durability and puncture resistance. Stone ejectors and tear drop sipes incorporated around the center block fight stone retention and drilling. In fact, Michelin said X Works D retains 25% fewer stones when new compared to the previous generation X Works XDY.
Featuring a durable retreadable casing, the new Michelin X Works D tire is available in the United States and Canada in 11R22.5 and 11R24.5 sizes in load range LRH and is backed by Michelin’s Worry Free 6-month Road Hazard Guarantee.
