Michelin says its new Michelin X One Line Energy D2 Pre-Mold retread tire is the company'sslowest rolling resistance heavy truck drive retread to date. Created for long-haul transportation, it is designed to deliver industry-leading fuel savings to lower the total cost of ownership, while providing exceptional traction for driver confidence.

“The Michelin X One Line Energy D2 Pre-Mold’s new ultra-low rolling resistance levels are designed to exceed SmartWay and CARB requirements,” says Pierluigi Cumo, B2B VP of Marketing for Michelin North America, Inc. “It’s compact tread design, with less flexibility in the tire tread between the tread surface and tire carcass, provides better energy conservation for greater fuel efficiency.”

The Michelin X One Line Energy D2 Pre-Mold tire is designed to optimize the total cost of ownership by improving rolling resistance, improving mileage performance and providing improved resistence to irregular wear for long tread life.
