Michelin helps make wet highways safer

Long-haul and regional truckers who have come to rely on the Michelin XZA3 truck tire can now increase safety on the highway using Michelin technology. With the patented Antisplash deflector on both of the tire's sidewalls, the new Michelin XZA3 Antisplash tire helps make highways safer by lowering the trajectory of water spraying from the tires.

While offering enhanced visibility, the Michelin XZA3 Antisplash tire builds upon the performance benefits of the XZA3 all-position tire. Advanced technology compounding with 19/32nds tread depth helps reduce the tire's rolling resistance and increase fuel efficiency. With an 80 percent wider shoulder rib than the XZA2 Antisplash tire, the new tire offers enhanced resistance to uneven shoulder wear. The XZA3 Antisplash tire's directional miniature sipes in the groove walls help defend against the onset of irregular wear and contribute to long original tread life. The casing's durability and endurance allow for multiple retreads when the tire is properly cared for. Like the Michelin XZA3, the XZA3 Antisplash tire carries the firm's Seven-Year/70,000-Mile/Three Retread Manufacturer's Limited Casing Warranty.

The XZA3 Antisplash tire is available in the 275/80R22.5 LRH size. Access www.us.michelin.com for further details.
