Michelin North America introduced the XDR 250+ in size 50/80R57. The tire features improved wear and abrasion resistance, the supplier reported.

The tire features new compounds that can increase tire life by up to 8% over predecessor technology with no tradeoff in ton-miles per hour, the company reported. Multilayer technology provides optimized wear on the front and rear axles. The contact patch is designed for increased aggression resistance due to lower tire pressure for the same load capacity over predecessor models.
