Michelin says its newest regional drive pattern tyres increase mileage potential by as much as 20% compared to the previous X MultiWay 3D XDE fitments, which routinely covered 430,000km for the Wexford-based haulier before being replaced.
The new tyres feature Powercoil, robust steel casing cables which help to make the tyres lighter but more durable, and Regenion tread technology that progressively reveals hidden grooves to maintain grip throughout the life of the tyre.
Myles Stamp (pictured), owner of Stamp Transport, says: “We’re used to achieving exceptional mileage from our Michelin tyres, and the potential to increase that by up to a further 20% could have a very positive effect on our operating costs.
“We specify Michelin as original equipment on all our vehicles and we receive impressive results every time. It’s still very early days for the new X Multi D fitments, but we are confident these tyres will set a new record mileage for our fleet.”
The haulier registers all its new tyres for Michelin’s accidental damage guarantee, of which Stamp says: “The accidental damage guarantee provides the ultimate protection of our investment, although we hope we never need to use it.”
