Michelin Makes Tough Even Tougher

Posted on 6/10/2016 by in tires

Michelin has continuously delivered some of the best quality tires for your commercial vehicle, and they are keeping the trend going with the release of the new MICHELIN® X® Works™ Z. This specialty tire provides the same guaranteed high-quality of the Michelin brand with even more benefits, including a 6-month worry-free Road Hazard Guarantee.

 Bigger and Even Better Than Before

You may be wondering what is so special about Michelin's newest addition to the tire lineup, so we're here to tell you how tough just got tougher. The MICHELIN® X® Works™ Z is the toughest all-position, on/off road tire and sports a 50% wider protector ply than leading competitive tires. Not only does this tire trump the competition, but it even beats out the MICHELIN® XZY® 3 tire it replaces by providing 5% more removal miles. This tire guarantees unsurpassed durability against road hazards.

Not sure if you buy in to the hype? Experience breakthrough performance and durability without the risk. Try the X® Works™ Z worry-free with Michelin's 6-month Road Hazard Guarantee. With this guarantee, Michelin will credit you $200 per tire if the tire is taken out of service (not repairable or retreadable) in the first six months or before 50% of its useable tread life - whichever comes first.
