Michelin X One Tire Boosts Concrete Mixer Profits

Using Michelin X One tires, Schwing-Stetter concrete mixer trucks can now hold an additional 560 pounds of concrete with each load, according to the tiremaker.

Michelin X One tires replace dual tires on commercial vehicles with one wide-based single tire, thus reducing the overall weight of the vehicle. Schwing-Stetter’s newest light-weight drum, on a Mack chassis and equipped with a set of X One XZY3 tires, is on display this week at the World of Concrete show in Las Vegas in the Schwing-Stetter booth.

In addition to the weight savings, Michelin X One tires feature lower rolling resistance, which will improve the vehicle’s fuel economy by up to 10%. The Michelin wide single tire features more than a quarter-mile of steel cord wrapped circumferentially around every X One tire from sidewall to sidewall. This reduces casing growth and stabilizes the contact patch, reducing irregular wear, Michelin said. (Tire Review/Akron)
