Michelin's new EPA SmartWay verified XZA3+ EVERTREAD steer tire is guaranteed to last at least 30 percent longer than the competition in long-haul applications.

“Michelin is always looking to build on our existing industry-leading products and bring to market new technologies that deliver the next level of performance without compromise,” says Ted Becker, vice president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires.

“The XZA3+ EVERTREAD tire, with its use of Michelin’s new patent pending Dual Compound Tread, is proof of this idea,” he continues. “In fact, Michelin is so confident in the XZA3+ EVERTREAD tire that we guarantee fleet and owner-operators will get more road than competitive tires.”

The tire is able to deliver significantly longer wear life due to Michelin’s new generation of Co-Ex Technology, the patent pending Dual Compound Tread. “This technology allows tire designers to utilize multiple rubber compounds at different places in the tread. One compound is specifically engineered to control tread stiffness and stress to reduce irregular wear, delivering unrivaled tread life without compromising other characteristics. Another compound delivers ultra fuel-efficiency and keeps the tire’s operating temperatures low, guarding the casing for retreading,” says Becker.

The tire also features a three-retread limited warranty that “further demonstrates the advantage of the Dual Compound Tread, as well as the robust casing integrity through the enhanced inner liner, bead area and rectangular bead bundle.”

It is available in four G-load range sizes: 11R22.5, 275/80R22.5, 11R24.5 and 275/80R24.5; as well as two H-load range sizes: 11R22.5 and 275/80R22.5.
