Michelin is replacing its Michelin XZE tire in the two current 19.5-inch sizes (225/70R19.5 LRG and 245/70R19.5 LRH) in October with the Agilis HD Z 19.5 tire. The company says the Agilis HD Z 19.5 tire delivers the same performance of the Michelin XZE tire but with improved rolling resistance.

"The new Michelin Agilis HD Z 19.5 tire is the natural evolution of our already best-selling Michelin XZE brand, offering 34% more miles, better wet grip, and lower rolling resistance than the leading competitors," said Jaye Young, B2B on-road marketing director for Michelin North America.

Groove-bottom protectors help deliver additional defense against stone drilling. Variable-pitch groove walls help prevent stones from lodging in the tread, to extend casing life and improve retreadability. Full-width protector ply helps protect the working plies from bruising and penetrations, lowering downtime. Curb guards provide sidewall and shoulder protection.
