Michelin’s new X One Multi T wide-base single trailer tire is targeted for high-scrub, weight-sensitive applications, such as flatbed and tanker trailer assets. The X One Multi T is available for spread and multi-axle trailer fitment configurations.
As a wide base single configuration, the tire enables a tractor trailer to carry up to 289 more pounds of payload versus dual tires, Michelin officials said in a press release.
The dual-compound tread resists scrub, and a cooler internal layer helps maximize casing life. The directional tread design also incorporates matrix siping and micro-sipes to reduce irregular wear, company officials said.
Variable groove walls partnered with groove bottom protectors provide improved resistance to stone drilling. Curb guards provide sidewall protection.
The X One Multi T tire is available in a 445/50R22.5 tire size.
