September 28, 2010

XM37Michelin's new XM37 industrial radial tire is designed for backhoes and material-handling machines that work in especially difficult conditions. The new tire, says Michelin, employs the "X-radial" design, a technology aimed at reducing flats and extending tire life. Rubber compounds in the new tire are formulated to enhance performance in hard-surface conditions, yet provide comfort and good handling on the road. Estimated list price: $500 to $1,000.
