Michelin Retread Technologies announced the launch of the Michelin XDY-EX Pre-Mold retread, a drive position retread built for demanding off-road applications. The XDY-EX retread delivers exceptional durability and is designed for single- and tandem-axle service in severe applications such as logging, mining, and construction.
“The Michelin XDY-EX Pre-Mold retread performs in even the most grueling conditions due to its combination of tread design and proprietary compound technology that delivers more uptime and excellent traction,” said Ted Becker, vice-president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires, a division of Michelin North America Inc.
Designed for 70% or more service in off-road driving conditions, the XDY-EX retread accepts chains and is available in 220- and 230-mm sizes; the 240-mm size will be available in December 2013. The raised-block sculpture has a deep 32/32nd tread that delivers exceptional traction, and a proprietary compound technology contributes to greater wear resistance. The retread also features stone ejector ledges on the side of the tread grooves that help resist stone-drilling.
