Michelin has launched all-new tyre options for commercial vehicle owners in India. Two patented technologies by Michelin have been implemented for the first time by Michelin for the Indian market. These tyres by the French-based tyre manufacturer are christened 'Michelin X Guard'.
The Michelin X Guard is a radial tyre for trucks in the Indian market. Radial truck tyres have been specifically designed and engineered keeping in mind Indian road and climate conditions. This is Michelin India's entry into the mass market segment of commercial vehicles.
Currently, Michelin X Guard will be available only in Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, and West Bengal. These new radial truck tyres will be available exclusively at Michelin authorised tyre dealerships.
In terms of price, Michelin has priced the X Guard radial truck tyre at Rs. 18,500. This price includes the inner tube, flap, and taxes that are applied to the tyre. Michelin India promises these tyres are longer lasting, more fuel efficient, lighter, and robust compared to the competition.
