Michelin adds X Works D pre-mold retreads

May 30, 2024
Newly available on- and off-road retreads for mixed and aggressive applications designed to deliver ‘exceptional’ traction, toughness, and wear performance

Michelin recently added the Michelin X Works D pre-mold drive position retread to its Michelin Retread Technologies on-road/off-road line. The latest retread offering is optimized for exceptional wear performance, toughness, and traction in mixed and aggressive applications, the company said.

A complement to the Michelin X Works D new tire, the retread delivers traction in both new and worn condition, stone ejectors and unique siping to help minimize stone retention, improved wear mileage, and directional tread.

“The Michelin X Works D retread is designed specifically for the construction, energy, concrete, and logging industries,” Pierluigi Cumo, Michelin North America vice president of B2B marketing, said in a news release. “These vehicles operate in aggressive and mixed-use environments, driving off pavement at least 10% of the time on a daily basis and subjecting tires to any number of harsh conditions.”

With its unique tread design, the Michelin X Works D pre-mold retread offers a mix of stability and traction. Its tread pattern is designed to help keep drivers in control on multiple surfaces—even as the tire ages.

“The innovative Michelin X Works D pre-mold retread delivers outstanding traction, durability, and wear resistance for on- and off-road fleets, reflecting our dedication to sustainability now and into the future,” Cumo added. “Michelin believes that finding a harmonious balance between social, economic, and environmental issues is critical to safeguarding the planet’s future.”

The new product is available in both the U.S. and Canada in six sizes: 210 mm, 220 mm, 230 mm, 240 mm, 250 mm, and 270 mm, all with a tread depth of 30/32”.
