Michelin Rolls Out New OTR Tire

The new Michelin X-Traction tire from Michelin North America is now available for the North American market. The 49-inch E4 size tire is designed for 100-ton earthmover transport equipment in mining operations. A new-generation 35-inch size will be available this September and two 33-inch sizes for smaller rigid dump trucks that operate on construction, quarry and infrastructure sites are to debut in 2011. New cooling system shoulder design and C2 technology casing architecture reduce heat build-up, enabling trucks to operate continuously at higher speeds, Michelin says. The new tire features a deeper tread to extend tire life and thicker under tread rubber to improve resistance to cuts and impacts.
