Longstanding Michelin tyres user Stamp Transport could soon be achieving more than 500,000km from its drive tyres, after switching to Michelin’s latest generation 315/70 R22.5 X Multi D drive axle tyres.
Michelin’s development team claim that its newest regional drive pattern tyres increase mileage potential by as much as 20 percent versus the previous X MultiWay 3D XDE fitments, which routinely covered 430,000km for the Wexford-based haulier before being replaced.
The new tyres boast impressive innovations, including Powercoil, a new generation of robust steel casing cables which helps to make the tyres lighter but more durable, and Regenion tread technology that progressively reveals hidden grooves to maintain grip throughout the life of the tyre.
“We’re used to achieving exceptional mileage from our Michelin tyres, and the potential to increase that by up to a further 20 percent could have a very positive effect on our operating costs,” said Myles Stamp, Owner of Stamp Transport.
“We specify Michelin as original equipment on all our vehicles and we receive impressive results every time. It’s still very early days for the new X Multi D fitments, but we are confident these tyres will set a new record mileage for our fleet.”
The road transport operator registers all its new tyres for Michelin’s accidental damage guarantee, providing protection against the financial cost of accidental damage – and reinforcing the benefits of investing in premium Michelin tyres.
Commenting on the guarantee, Myles continued: “We buy the best possible tyres for our fleet, and this means we enjoy the benefits of maximum safety, longevity and fuel-efficiency. The added bonus of the accidental damage guarantee provides the ultimate protection of our investment, although we hope we never need to use it.”
Stamp Transport, established in 1992, runs a fleet of 40 trucks and 50 trailers, and provides fresh food, pharmaceutical and general haulage for national domestic and international customers, from its base in Enniscorthy, County Wexford.
