September 28, 2010

MichelinThe Michelin X-Super Terrain AD, an E4 23.5R25 radial tire for articulated trucks, is designed with a deep tread and new rubber compound to extend service life, and with modified shoulder and sidewall construction aimed at enhancing resistance to damage. The new tread pattern, says Michelin, combines aggressive traction with self-cleaning capability, and the overall design of the new tire results in low rolling resistance and provides a good ride for the operator. Estimated list price: $3,600.
