MICHELIN® X® Multi™ Energy Z offers Smartway® fuel efficiency, long tread life and durability in regional and emerging super regional applications

LAVAL, QC, Feb. 18, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Michelin Americas Truck Tires a division of Michelin North America, Inc. announced the launch of its new MICHELIN® X® MultiTM Energy Z, a regional steer tire that meets U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay® verified requirements.  With a 15 per cent reduction in rolling resistance, the tire delivers industry leading fuel efficiency, as well as excellent longevity and a high degree of overall durability (1, 2).  The MICHELIN X Multi Energy Z will be available March 1 for fleets in the United States and Canada.

"Michelin is excited to again offer a no compromise truck tire solution  ? this time for regional steer tires.  The new MICHELIN X Multi Energy Z offers the industry's best combination of fuel savings and mileage in a regional application." said Ted Becker, vice president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. "When combined with the MICHELIN® X® Multi™ Energy D drive tire, the MICHELIN X Multi Energy Z provides a complete SmartWay regional solution."

Additionally, the X Multi Energy Z is ideal for the emerging super regional trucking application, which requires a tire that can withstand both irregular wear and scrub.  The super regional application is emerging due to changing logistical and transportation patterns.

The MICHELIN X Multi Energy Z tire is engineered with a dual compound tread and a new energy casing that provides low rolling resistance and long tread life.  Outstanding handling is delivered by inter-locking Matrix™ sipes.  Casing life is extended by curb guards and a rectangular bead bundle.  The MICHELIN X Multi Energy Z tire is available in three sizes: 11R22.5 LRG, 11R22.5 LRH and 275/80R22.5 LRH.
