Trucking fleets and owner-operators that want more miles out of their steer tires while still saving fuel can now take advantage of the new Michelin XZA3+ Evertread steer tire. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay-verified tire delivers fuel savings while also guaranteeing more miles of usage.
This new steer tire is guaranteed to last at least 30% longer than the competition in long-haul applications. For complete details on this guarantee, visit the Michelin Americas Truck Tires website.
The XZA3+ Evertread tire is able to deliver significantly longer wear life due to Michelin's new generation of Co-Ex Technology, the patent-pending Dual Compound Tread. This technology allows tire designers to utilize multiple rubber compounds at different places in the tread. One compound is specifically engineered to control tread stiffness and stress to reduce irregular wear, delivering superior tread life without compromising other characteristics. Another compound delivers ultra fuel efficiency and keeps the tire's operating temperatures low, guarding the casing for retreading.
This tire also comes with a three-retread limited warranty, which covers the Dual Compound Tread, as well as casing integrity through the enhanced inner liner, bead area, and rectangular bead bundle.
The XZA3+ Evertread tire continues to provide the handling and responsiveness in both dry and wet conditions that the previous XZA3 tire offered. The new tire is available in North America in four G-load range sizes: 11R22.5, 275/80R22.5, 11R24.5, and 275/80R24.5; as well as two H-load range sizes: 11R22.5 and 275/80R22.5.
