All-position retread for off-road fleets.

Michelin Retread Technologies is enabling mixed-use fleets and owner-operators to take on the challenges of on/off-road applications with the new Michelin XZY3 PreMold retread. The all-position tread is designed to deliver exceptional wear and durability in on/off-road use, offering a retread that extends the performance of the popular new tire tread design throughout the casing life. The XZY3 retread's compound protects against aggression, chipping and cutting, while a center groove bottom protector guards the center channel from any stone drilling and also assists in ejecting any stones or debris from the groove. The tread's four-rib design delivers the traction needed for the tire to operate in soft soil and mud, a regular challenge for tires in the mixed-use environment. The retread is available in eight sizes: 210, 220, 230, 240, 250, 270, 280 and 290/345. The 290/345 size incorporates a winged tread design into the tread blocks for additional shoulder adhesion in high-scrub applications.
