A new drive retread for fleets operating more than 70% of the time off-road is now available from Michelin Retread Technologies.

The XDY-EX Pre-Mold retread “delivers exceptional durability and is designed for single and tandem axle service in severe applications such as logging, mining and construction,” the company said.

“The Michelin XDY-EX Pre-Mold retread performs in even the most grueling conditions due to its combination of tread design and proprietary compound technology that delivers more uptime and excellent traction,” said Ted Becker, vice president of marketing for Michelin Americas Truck Tires, a division of Michelin North America, Inc.

The XDY-EX retread accepts chains and is available in 220 and 230mm sizes. A 240 mm size will be available in December. 

The raised-block sculpture has a deep 32/32nd tread and a proprietary compound technology contributes to greater wear resistance. The retread also features stone ejector ledges on the side of the tread grooves that help resist stone-drilling, increasing the service life of the casing.
