Improve Your Fuel Economy with Michelin
Reduce rolling resistance with MICHELIN® X ONE® Tires
Reduce rolling resistance and increase fuel economy with MICHELIN® X One® wide base single tires. These tires have two sidewalls, which results in less flex when compared to the four sidewalls that dual tires have. In addition to less flex, these tires are designed with advanced tread and casing technologies.
One MICHELIN X One wide single tire and wheel weigh less than two duals and two wheels. Every 10% drop in truck weight reduces fuel use between 5–10%5. With the weight savings offered by MICHELIN X One tires, a truck fleet can carry more payload.
Improve Aerodynamics with the MICHELIN® Energy Guard SOLUTION
Control your vehicle’s airflow and get significant fuel savings with the MICHELIN® Energy Guard, a fully integrated aerodynamic solution. A resilient trailer skirt, patent-pending bracket and slider design, drag-reducing trailer end fairings, innovative wake reducer and aerodynamic mud flaps work together to combat the wind and improve your bottom line.
1 Estimated fuel cost savings based on fuel savings results1, with fuel prices at 2019 diesel fuel average of $3.056/gal., if tractor and trailer travel 100,000 miles per year with a baseline fuel economy of 7.4 mpg.
2 Estimated fuel savings at 65mph based on commissioned, third-party MVT Solutions Certified™ testing procedure on a modern Class 8 truck and 53' trailer equipped with MICHELIN® Energy Guard, MICHELIN® X Line Energy Z 275/80R22.5 steer tires, MICHELIN® X One® Line Energy D drive tires, and MICHELIN® X One® Line Energy T trailer tires, and compared to a trailer with no aerodynamic devices, equipped with Bridgestone R284 Ecopia™ 295/75R22.5 steer tires, Bridgestone Greatec M835A Ecopia™ 445/50R22.5 drive tires, and Bridgestone Greatec R197 Ecopia™ 445/50R22.5 trailer tires. Actual results may vary, and may be impacted by many factors, to include road conditions, weather, environment, combination of steer and drive tires used, driving habits, tire size, equipment and maintenance.
