Having operated a Michelin tyre policy for more than 15 years, Wales-based haulier Gerry Jones Transport has become one of the first fleets in the UK to fit the Company’s newest X Multi D series tyres.
Recently unveiled at the CV Show, the new generation of 315/70 R 22.5 drive tyres are said by Michelin to deliver up to a 20 per cent increase in mileage potential compared with the previous X MultiWay 3D range and are designed to combine the lowest cost per kilometre with outstanding grip in all weather conditions.
Commenting, Gerry Jones Transport’s Workshop Manager, Nathan Jones said: “We test sets of competitor tyres from time to time but when it comes to mileage performance, there is no other manufacturer that gets anywhere close to the life we get from our Michelin tyres. The previous generation drive tyres were in a class of their own, and we’re confident the new X Multi D rubber will raise the bar even higher”.
The fleet includes approximately 20 rigids, 50 tractor units and 110 trailers, with the customer frequently achieving 270,000 to 300,000 km from a set of Michelin drive axle tyres before needing to be replaced.
