Michelin XDR Tire
March 25, 2011

Michelin-XDR2-Tire1Michelin Earthmover’s Michelin XDR2 tire for severe mining and quarry applications and designed for rigid dump trucks offers up to 20 percent more tread life than its predecessor, the Michelin XDR tire. In addition to the increased tread life, the XDR2 tire also delivers up to a 10 percent thicker undertread between the protective plies and tread base for better cut and impact resistance. With a new self-cleaning tread pattern, the XDR2 tire combines full-depth blocks, a 13 percent larger central lug (compared to XDR tire) and the new non-directional design to provide increased protection against aggressions and cut separations. The evolving tread design provides an increased contact patch as the tire wears, while sculptured cooling vents help keep running temperatures low.
