Michelin MD XDN2 delivers better mileage, traction for regional, medium-duty vehicles

July 13, 2016

Michelin Americas Truck Tires, a division of Michelin North America Inc, has introduced the MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread--a drive-position retread optimized for long wear life, lasting durability and outstanding traction--for regional, medium-duty vehicles with 19.5 inch tires. It has attributes that should appeal to food and beverage, parcel package, and pick-up and delivery applications.

"Delivery fleets are faced with tough start-stop, turning and curbing conditions as they get their products to market each day,” said Adam Murphy, vice-president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “They demand a retread option that is as tough as the roads they drive on. The new MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread answers those demands with long, even wear and excellent traction.”

The MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread features an 18/32 inch tread depth for 190/200 tread sizes and a 20/32 inch tread depth for 210/220/230 tread sizes. The tread design minimizes the internal casing temperature to contribute to a longer casing and tread life.  Wide, open-shoulder grooves provide outstanding wear and full-depth sipes deliver excellent traction.
