Pre Mold Process
Also known as a "pre-cure" process. Tread rubber used in this process is molded and pre-cured by the tread rubber manufacturer, Michelin Retread Technologies (MRT). The appropriate tread is selected – design, width, thickness – and applied to a prepared casing. The casing is prepared by placing a cushion gum bonding layer between the tread and casing. The tire then moves to the chamber for curing.
* Based on industry standard rolling resistance testing of comparable tires & retreads / recaps. Actual results may vary, and may be impacted by many factors, to include road conditions, weather and environment, driver performance, etc.
** Tread widths with two measurements have wings. The first number is tread base width in mm. The second number is the overall width, wing tip to tip.
*** Based on internal tests against SmartWay® requirements.
