Michelin X One XDA Energy tire

Tires and wheels | November 28, 2011

The Michelin X One XDA Energy tire is the company’s most fuel-efficient drive tire to date. The company says this is thanks to different belt designs and Advanced Technology compounds. It uses Infini-Coil Technology, which includes more than a quarter-of-a-mile of steel cord wrapped circumferentially around the crown of every X One tire. The Infini-Coil reduces casing growth and stabilizes the contact patch, reducing irregular wear, the company said. In addition, Matrix Siping Technology helps provide greater traction on dry and slippery surfaces. The three-dimensional Matrix sipes lock together for the stability normally associated with solid tread blocks. The X One XDA Energy tire is available in size 445/50R22.5 coast-to-coast, and will replace the Michelin X One XDA tire.
