MICHELIN Truck and Bus Tyres are engineered for Multi-Life= Regroovable and Retreadable!
- More Mileage: save 1 tyre every 4!
Regrooving is carried out at a time when the original tread depth has 3 to 4 mm remaining and the tyre is normally removed. Regrooving restores tread depth thus providing up to 25% more kilometers.
- More Safety through grip regeneration
Regrooving significantly renews the grip of the tyre through the regeneration of the groove up to 4 mm beyond the original bottom of the groove.
- Less Fuel Consumption and less CO2 emissions
Regrooving is carried out in the phase when the tyre has the lowest rolling resistance due to higher rigidity of the shallow tread pattern, and Low Rolling Resistance means Increased Fuel Efficiency.
- Less Raw Materials Consumption to preserve the environment
By adding only 5% additional rubber volume when the tyre is new, a Michelin Regroovable tyre will add up to 25% more kilometers which creates a 16% reduction in raw materials when compared to non-regroovable tyres.
