These tyres have been designed for users who do majority of their running ON roads, but also need to access construction sites to deliver raw materials and concrete, or to collect waste. Operators need both high mileage for road use and grip and traction on construction sites.
The Michelin X Works range delivers this high-performance combination, allowing users to reduce operating costs.
The new range uses advanced Michelin technology. Some of the benefits:
· Robust tyre construction with super high tensile cables offers tougher crown strength. Reinforced casing cable provides stronger sidewall and wider steel belts reduce possible damages and downtime.
BETTER GROUND HANDLING
· The drive axle X Works HD D has enhanced ON and OFF grip and aggression wear with large shoulder blocks and wider* transversal V grooves allowing the tyre to perform in difficult road conditions such as in mud and slush.
· The all position X Works HD Z has stone ejectors at the base of the tread grooves to reduce stone trappings.
· Additional bead wires offer 25%** higher resistance to possible bead rupture. Bead related issues minimized by additional protection around the beads and additional bead wires.
Michelin X Works D and Z range is currently available at all authorised Michelin Truck and Bus tyre dealer network in the country.
