Michelin introduces retread for pick-up and delivery segment

mrtmdxdn2 jpg-189666-originalMichelin has introduced the MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread, a drive-position retread optimized for durability and traction for regional, medium-duty vehicles with 19.5-inch tires.

The MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread is ideal for food and beverage, parcel package, and pick-up and delivery applications.

“Delivery fleets are faced with tough start-stop, turning and curbing conditions as they get their products to market each day,” said Adam Murphy, vice president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires. “They demand a retread option that is as tough as the roads they drive on. The new Michelin MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread answers those demands with long, even wear and excellent traction.”

The MD XDN 2 Pre-Mold retread features an 18/32-inch tread depth for 190/200 tread sizes and a 20/32-inch tread depth for 210/220/230 tread sizes.  The tread design is engineered to minimize the internal casing temperature to contribute to a longer casing and tread life. Wide, open-shoulder grooves are designed to provide improved wear and full-depth sipes are engineered for improved traction.
