Save Fuel & Weight
WITH MICHELIN® FUEL EFFICIENT TIRES AND ENERGY GUARD AERODYNAMIC SOLUTIONS
introducing michelin's most fuel efficient tire lineup on the market.
Fuel is the largest vehicle-based cost in trucking.1
Aerodynamics and tire rolling resistance contribute up to 85% of a rig’s drag2 which negatively impacts fuel consumption.
Fuel efficiency provides a competitive advantage and improves your bottom line.
One MICHELIN® X ONE® wide base single tire and wheel weigh less than two duals and wheels.
With the weight savings, a fleet can increase payload capacity.

IMPROVE YOUR FUEL ECONOMY WITH MICHELIN
1. REDUCE ROLLING RESISTANCE WITH MICHELIN® X ONE® TIRES
Reduce rolling resistance and increase fuel economy with MICHELIN® X One® wide base single tires. These tires have two sidewalls, which results in less flex when compared to the four sidewalls that dual tires have. In addition to less flex, these tires are designed with advanced tread and casing technologies.
One MICHELIN X One wide single tire and wheel weigh less than two duals and two wheels. Every 10% drop in truck weight reduces fuel use between 5–10%3. With the weight savings offered by MICHELIN X One tires, a truck fleet can carry more payload.
2. IMPROVE AERODYNAMICS WITH MICHELIN® ENERGY GUARD AERO SOLUTIONS
Control your vehicle’s airflow and get significant fuel savings with the MICHELIN® Energy Guard, a fully integrated aerodynamic solution. A resilient trailer skirt, patent-pending bracket and slider design, drag-reducing trailer end fairings, innovative wake reducer and aerodynamic mud flaps work together to combat the wind and improve your bottom line
