Michelin Rolls Out X Works Z Tire - On/Off Road Applications

Michelin Rolls Out X Works Z

MichelinXWorksZMichelin North America Inc. has introduced the Michelin X Works Z, an all-position tire, for mixed on/off road applications that operate in demanding environments.

“Construction, energy and tanker customers demand a tire that fights against road hazards so they can keep running and get their work done,” said Adam Murphy, vice president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “With multiple features to protect the casing and sidewall from shocks and impacts, the new Michelin X Works Z delivers the uptime, durability and capping those fleets demand.”

Designed to decrease downtime, the tire features a wide protector ply and a thick layer of cushion gum to provide extra protection and casing durability, Michelin said. In addition, the X Works Z features dual-layered defense against stone retention and stone-drilling, with V-channels and groove bottom protectors.  The sidewall also features a double treatment of TW6 Ozone Resistor for increased protection against ozone cracking, Michelin shared.

The Michelin X Works Z also offers increased removal mileage from its predecessor and is backed by Michelin’s six-month worry-free road hazard guarantee.

The tire is available now in 11R22.5, 12R22.5 and 11R24.5 sizes in load range H and a 315/80R22.5 size in load range L.  A 12R24.5 size in load range H will launch at a later date, the tiremaker said.
