New regional drive-position truck tire boasts mileage, scrub resistance
and traction benefits.
Michelin Americas Truck Tires, a
division of Michelin North America, has introduced the Michelin X Multi D, a
regional drive-position tire for use in less-than-truckload, pick-up and
delivery, food and beverage and other demanding vocational segments.
The company says the X Multi D is a
versatile tire designed with an advanced regenerating tread that provides water
evacuation and traction throughout the life of the tire while full-depth Matrix
siping allows for a biting grip as the tread wears.

The tire features co-extruded
scrub-resistant rubber for first class mileage and cooler running rubber to
help minimize heat build-up for increased casing life.
This next-generation regional drive has
been designed to excel in high torque applications and delivers all the key
performance benefits needed in a regional tire traction, said Adam
Murphy, Vice President of Marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires.
The X Multi D performance is backed by a
confidence guarantee. If the tire does not meet expectations for mileage,
traction and driver satisfaction, then Michelin will reimburse any cost
difference for a competitive drive tire.
The tire is available in the United
States, Canada and Mexico, in 11R22.5 size in load ranges G and H, and 11R24.5
size in load range H, with additional sizes to follow in the coming months.
