Total Fleet Tire from Michelin with $400 Guarantee

| September 28, 2017


Michelin is on a roll, announcing what it calls “a total solution for fleet products and services including the new MICHELIN XDA Energy +, a dual drive-position tire for line-haul applications.”

Available immediately, the new XDAEnergy + is a dual drive-position tire designed for fleets and owner-operators who are focused on fuel savings to reduce their operating costs.

Here’s what’s cool: The fuel savings are driven by an innovative compound formula for ultra-low rolling resistance.  Michelin will also offer a limited guarantee of $400 per truck in fuel savings. Because these tires are compliant with SmartWay, California Air Resources Board and a significant contributor to Greenhouse Gas Phase II regulations green initiative, fleets can benefit the environment and their bottom line.

“Helping fleets to increase their competitiveness in the market is our goal,” said Adam Murphy, vice president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “One of the main levers fleets have to improve their competitiveness is improving their fuel efficiency, and tires like the new Michelin XDA Energy + can play a key role.”

The XDA Energy + features wide circumferential grooves for efficient water evacuation and grooved, angled walls to help resist stone retention that can lead to stone drilling that potentially damages the casing. The sidewall also features TW6 OzoneShield technology for increased protection against weathering. The tire features a durable Michelin casing capable of supporting multiple retreads reducing maintenance costs.

As for the guarantee, it comes with a manufacturer’s limited casing guarantee which includes coverage against defects in workmanship and materials for 700,000 miles, seven years or three retreads from the date of manufacture when retreaded by an authorized Michelin Retread Technologies dealer.

With the accelerated growth in the regional drive market, Michelin has also added a low-profile size of the MultiTM D to its portfolio, for regional fleet vehicles to lower overall truck height, improve clearance issues and also help improve aerodynamics for fuel efficiency.

The line, launched in July, is targeted for use in less-than-truckload, pick-up and delivery, food and beverage, and other demanding vocational segments. Many regional fleets across the country are moving to low profile tires to gain fuel economy and tire life advantages, which underscores the value of making this size available to the market.
