Michelin’s trailer tire

Michelin’s X One Line Energy T2 Trailer Tire is engineered for improved tread wear while providing fuel and weight savings. The SmartWay-verified tire is suited for the dry van truckload, refrigerated truckload and tanker applications. The tread design helps prevent irregular wear and incorporates compounds designed to improve resistance to late-life tire aggression. The dual-compound tread consists of a mileage top layer that helps control tread stiffness and stress to reduce irregular wear and a fuel-efficient bottom layer that helps minimize internal casing temperatures for low rolling resistance. The tread incorporates directional microsipes, resulting in a directional tire for the first half of tire life. Located along the center ribs, matrix siping with zigzag walls interlock for squirm resistance. The tire is available in size 445/50R22.5.
