With verified dual drive and trailer treads and wide single drive and trailer treads, Michelin will have full coverage in SmartWay retreads for over the road.
Michelinís SmartWay-verified retreads include XT-1 AT Pre-Mold for trailer applications, and XDA2 19 AT Pre-Mold and XDA2 23 AT Pre-Mold for drive axle applications.
These retreads meet SmartWay standards and are pending verification: X One XDA-HT Pre-Mold and XDA2 23 AT Custom-Mold for drive axle applications, and X One XTA Pre-Mold and XT-1 Custom Mold for trailer applications.
Michelin retreads verified by SmartWay are compliant with California Air Resources Board (CARB) greenhouse gas regulation for low-rolling-resistance tires. These retread options allow customers to be CARB-compliant when California implements the requirements for SmartWay-verified retreads January 1, 2013.
