Michelin is introducing two new commercial tires for rugged on/off road applications.

The X Works XDY truck tire is designed for exceptional traction and wear in on/off road use, while the XDY-EX2 is the company’s most aggressive drive axle tire for extreme operating conditions such as logging, oil fields and mining, according to Ted Becker, vice president of marketing.

“For today’s construction and on/off road fleets, it’s all about operational efficiency,” says Becker. “Traction and overall tire protection are paramount to maintaining uptime.”

Both offerings have “maximum sidewall protection with aggressive tread designs that deliver exceptional traction and durability,” he notes.

The X Works XDY provides enhanced durability due to a more robust tread design, delivering a 10 percent mileage improvement when compared with the company’s XDY3 tire, says Becker.

“Uptime is maximized with the directional tread design, improving the efficiency of mud evacuation to provide greater levels of traction,” he explains. “Maximum tread and casing life is achieved with Co-Ex Technology, which combines a top tread layer of chip and tear resistant compounds with a cool base tread layer to preserve the casing.”

The tire has extra-thick sidewall protection to guard against shocks, snags, impacts or other damage, and it is available in two sizes: 11R22.5 and 11R24.5.

“The XDY-EX2 tire improves on the last- generation XDY-EX tire, offering better off-road and mud traction from an aggressive tread design with more void area,” Becker continues.

“Maximum tread and casing life is once again obtained due to Co-Ex Technology,” he adds. “With extra-thick sidewalls, the XDY-EX2 tire provides considerable protection from the shocks, snags and impacts typically associated with severe service.” It comes in size 11R24.5.
