GREENVILLE, South Carolina—Michelin Americas Truck Tires has launched the MICHELIN X One MultiTM Energy T, a wide-base single- trailer tire for regional operations that is US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) SmartWay-verified. This latest addition to the X One family of tires is said to deliver a significant reduction in irregular wear and outstanding fuel economy, while allowing fleets to carry more than 700 pounds of additional freight versus dual applications.

The MICHELIN X One Multi Energy T is engineered with Advanced Casing Technology design, which changes the casing shape of the tire during use to reduce irregular wear. This results in a contact patch with a consistent footprint, regardless of payload weight. Solid shoulder architecture delivers significant wear improvement and the wide Infini-Coil Technology provides a consistent footprint for improved removal mileage.  Compared to the MICHELIN X One XTE, the MICHELIN X One Multi Energy T also delivers a 15 percent reduction in rolling resistance, for outstanding fuel economy.

The MICHELIN X One Multi Energy T tire, which replaces the MICHELIN X One XTE,  is available now in the 445/50R22.5 size. The 455/50R22.5 size will be available early 2015.
