Michelin Americas Truck Tires, a division of Greenville-based Michelin North America Inc., recently launched the Michelin X Line Energy Z tire for line-haul steer applications.
The tire features a new, fuel-efficient casing and dual-energy compound tread. Its top layer controls tread stiffness and stress to reduce irregular wear, while the bottom layer provides fuel efficiency and retreadability to minimize internal casing temperatures for low rolling resistance and extended casing life, according to a release.
“Michelin is known for providing industry-leading mileage and even wear. The Michelin X Line Energy Z continues that evolution, while also increasing fuel efficiency, so fleets get the best of both worlds,” said Adam Murphy, VP of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “Allowing fleets to get the most out of their line-haul steer tires is what the new Michelin X Line Energy Z tire is all about.”
