Michelin Launches New Crane Tire

MichelinMichelin has launched a new crane tire – the X-Crane + – an upgraded version of the X-Crane tire – which claims 20 percent greater longevity, as well as improved comfort and safety. It has also added a new tire size – 385/95 R25 – as well as the 525/80 R25 and the 445/95 R25 sizes and has an F speed rating (80 km per hour).

As well as improved safety by improving the surface contact area, the fitting and removal of the tire is safer and faster. By using a new rubber compound in the tread, the X-Crane + reduces heat built-up in the shoulders and steel cables are more resistant.Michelin says that the more rigid tread compound wears more evenly and generates fewer vibrations. And because it is longer lasting and can be regrooved, the new tire has a longer service life.
