Michelin North America Inc. is offering a satisfaction guarantee for first-time users of its X One wide single tire line.
The tire maker launched its guarantee in March at the Technology and Maintenance Council trucking show in Ft. Lauderdale. The offer is available to new X One tire customers who purchase at least four replacement X One tire assemblies. It covers the first 10 X One tire sets purchased for the first 60 days. Greenville, S.C.-based Michelin said it will take back the tires and provide a full refund if the customer is not satisfied.
The X One replaces dual tire sets with just one tire on tandem-axle tractors and trailers. The company said it will buy back X One casings and will cover 75 percent of the cost of the wheels if the owner isn't pleased with the tire's performance at the end of its original tread life.
