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.
