Michelin recently introduced a new pre-mold drive position retread in the Michelin Retread Technologies on-road/off-road line. The company said the new Michelin X Works D retread "is designed to be the next generation retread optimized for exceptional wear performance, toughness and traction in mixed and aggressive applications."

A complement to the Michelin X Works D new tire, the retread features exceptional traction in both new and worn condition, stone ejectors and unique siping to help minimize stone retention, improved wear mileage and directional tread, the company added.

“The Michelin X Works D retread is designed specifically for the construction, energy, concrete and logging industries,” said Pierluigi Cumo, Vice President of B2B Marketing for Michelin North America. “These vehicles operate in aggressive and mixed-use environments, driving off pavement at least 10% of the time on a daily basis and subjecting tires to any number of harsh conditions.”

With its unique tread design, the Michelin X Works D pre-mold retread offers a great mix of stability and traction. Its tread pattern is designed to help keep drivers in control on multiple surfaces even as the tire ages, Michelin noted.

"The innovative Michelin X Works D pre-mold retread delivers outstanding traction, durability, and wear resistance for on and off-road fleets, reflecting our dedication to sustainability now and into the future," said Cumo. “Michelin believes that finding a harmonious balance between social, economic and environmental issues is critical to safeguarding the planet’s future.”

The new retreads are available in both the U.S. and Canada in six sizes: 210 mm, 220 mm, 230 mm, 240 mm, 250 mm and 270 mm – all with a tread depth of 30/32."
