GREENVILLE, S.C. — Michelin North America Inc. has launched the Michelin X Incity Grip D, a heavy duty urban-bus drive-axle tire designed for harsh weather conditions like those of Canada and the northern U.S.
"The all-new Michelin X Incity Grip D urban drive tire is designed to keep buses moving with confidence in winter conditions," Mike Tolman, product category manager – Michelin Americas, Urban Mobility Business Line, said.
"Tires that move buses for transit authorities need to be cost efficient, safe and keep buses moving to remain on time and reliable, even during harsh weather conditions. But this can be a challenge for the transit equipment managers.
"We want this tire offer to be the No. 1 choice of transit authorities requiring a new drive tire for their applications."
