Michelin introduces new Antisplash truck tire
Greenville, South Carolina – Michelin has announced its new XZA2 Antisplash tire, which reduces the splash trajectory height by more than 50 per cent compared to standard tractor-trailer tires. The reduced height is less likely to impair the vision of other motorists, and lets truck drivers see vehicles more clearly in the truck’s mirrors.
The new tire also reduces rolling resistance for improved fuel efficiency, and provides improved traction on wet and slippery roads.
