Michelin North America (Canada) has introduced the MD XDN2 Pre-Mold retread for regional, medium-duty vehicles with 19.5 inch wheels. It’s a drive-position retread optimized for long wear life, lasting durability and outstanding traction, the company says.
The retread is said to be suited to food and beverage, parcel package, and pick-up and delivery applications faced with tough start-stop and curbing conditions
The MD XDN 2 features an 18/32-inch tread depth for 190/200 tread sizes and a 20/32-inch tread depth for 210/220/230 tread sizes. The tread design minimizes internal casing temperature to contribute to a longer casing and tread life. Wide, open-shoulder grooves provide outstanding wear, says Michelin, and full-depth sipes are claimed to deliver excellent traction.
