Michelin North America, Inc. has launched the Michelin® X® Mine D2 Extra Load L5 *** 35/65R33 tire, an improved version of one of its most popular mining tires. The new tire, developed to perform in quarry and underground mining applications, is designed to withstand the most aggressive mining environments and has the capacity to carry heavier loads.
“Michelin is extremely proud of this tire because of the increased benefit it offers our customers,” said Sarah Robinson, segment manager of mining for Michelin North America. “The new X Mine D2 Extra Load tire improves upon the well-regarded and trusted X Mine D2 tire, as it increases the load capacity by 16 per cent, from 28,000 kg (30.86 U.S. tons) to 32,500 kg (35.82 tons).”
The new tire is available to order in North America through local tire sales representatives in July, with deliveries beginning in August.
