Michelin Earthmover’s X-Super Terrain articulated dump truck tires are said to improve service capabilities. The tire size range includes 23.5R5. Uptime will be optimized through the use of C2 technology, which has robust casings with less shoulder mass that leads to longer tread life. The design also promotes additional sidewall protection, while a new tread compound and more durable casing extend tire life by up to 15 percent.
There is also a reduction in tire maintenance thanks to a new crown: thicker tread and deeper, more aggressive tread pattern. Wear life is increased between 5 and 10 percent (*) and there is more than 10 percent better resistance to damage (*) so reduced machine downtime. The tire also boasts improved machine mobility thanks to a deeper, more open tread pattern, facilitating self-cleaning; a 10-percent improved traction throughout the tire’s wear life; and improved lateral grip.
