More Bang for Your Buck With the New MICHELIN X LINE Energy Z Tire

Posted on 4/29/2016 by in tires The Gold Program

Michelin Americas Truck Tires is excited to announce the arrival of its newest industry-leading line-haul steer tire: the MICHELIN® X® Line™ Energy Z. The MICHELIN X LINE Energy Z continues to provide industry-leading mileage and even wear, while increasing fuel efficiency so you're getting the most bang for your buck.

What's New?

For years, Michelin has provided some of the highest quality tires, so you're probably wondering how they could possibly make tires that are even better than before. The SmartWay®-verified tire is guaranteed to deliver 20% more mileage than leading competitor line-haul steer tires, while also delivering 5% better rolling resistance than the MICHELIN® XZA3®+ tire it replaces.

"Allowing fleets to get the most out of their line-haul steer tires is what the new MICHELIN X Line Energy Z tire is all about."

~Adam Murphy, VP of Marketing for Michelin America Truck Tires

This tire also features a new ultra-fuel-efficient casing, so the improvement in rolling resistance follows the tire throughout its life - from new to retread. It provides maximum retreadability and a casing designed for endurance, complete with the 7/7/3 manufacturer's limited casing warranty which includes coverage against defects in workmanship and materials for 700,000 miles, seven years, or three retreads from the date of manufacture when retreaded by an authorized Michelin Retread Technologies (MRT) dealer.
