WATCH: Michelin expands heavy duty truck tyre range


Michelin has launched its new X-multi heavy duty drive tyre in 315/80 R22.5 and 315/70 R22.5 sizes.

The tyre manufacturer says the X Multi heavy duty drive is designed to be the most robust tyre in the market for versatile applications requiring a combination of high mileage potential and traction.

The new range is designed towards solid bulk, agricultural and specialist transport operators – including fleets used for milk collection and animal feed deliveries to farms.

Unpaved roads

Its launch marks the first time Michelin has offered a dedicated heavy-duty drive tyre within its regional tyre range, for operators which are required to travel on unpaved access roads during the final part of their collections or deliveries, where there is the potential to encounter more aggressive surfaces.

Chris Smith - Sales Director B2B UK and ROI at Michelin - says: “We’ve developed the Michelin X Multi HD D to cater for fleets where more than 80% of their work is on highways and national roads, but where their priority is maximum robustness and resistance to accidental damage from unpaved access roads”.

Both sizes are available on the replacement market with immediate effect, and the first fitments will be offered as original equipment by major truck manufacturers over the coming months.
