The Michelin X Multi D is a regional, all-position tire for use in less-than-truckload, pick-up and delivery, food and beverage, and other demanding vocational segments.
Michelin is bringing this tire to market to serve the demanding needs of regional fleets, specifically those with 4x2 and 6x2 configurations. The tire is available in the United States, Canada, and Mexico in 11R22.5 size in load ranges G and H, and 11R24.5 size in load range H, with additional sizes to follow in the coming months.
The X Multi D tire is designed with a regenerating tread that provides water evacuation and traction over the life of the tire, while full-depth Matrix siping allows for a biting grip as the tread wears. The tire features co-extruded, scrub-resistant rubber for first class mileage and cooler running rubber to help minimize heat build-up and improve casing life.
The X Multi D features a pass-through open shoulder that allows quick evacuation of water, mud, and slush from beneath the tread surface area, and the edges of the tread allows the tire to grip onto surfaces in difficult conditions, such as snow.
Michelin says the X Multi D tire can achieve 65% better mileage than the Michelin XDE M/S tire. The sidewall also features TW6 OzoneShield technology for increased protection against weathering.
