Michelin has launched a new product that we think business owners—particularly of small- and medium-sized enterprises—might find useful: the Agilis 3. This is French brand’s new tire built for the light commercial truck segment. If you own such vehicles, you’ll want to check this out.
According to Michelin, the new Agilis 3 has been engineered to be abrasion-resistant, provide excellent grip on both wet and dry road conditions, and enable better fuel economy. It has sidewall shields, an undertread, and stone ejectors, among many other features.
Michelin also says that with these new tires, equipped vehicles can have a shorter wet braking distance versus vehicles rolling on similar-spec rubber—up to 1.9 meters shorter when new and 3.8 meters when worn. It also boasts 25% more mileage than its predecessors, as well as improved rolling resistance.
“In line with Michelin’s ‘Performance and Safety Made to Last’ brand promise, the new Agilis 3 is outfitted with innovative technologies and sophisticated features for long-lasting performance with optimum safety and environmental friendliness,” said Michelin East Asia and Oceania’s Shane Chadderton.
“These attributes not only provide a competitive advantage over current competitors in the same market segment, but also reinforce Michelin’s commitment for more sustainable mobility. Essentially, this tire is well-positioned to be a sustainable urban growth engine. The latest breakthrough is further evidence of Michelin Group’s sustainable performance strategy in favor of safer, cleaner, more accessible, and more efficient mobility.”
The Agilis 3 is now available at authorized commercial light truck tire dealers across the country. There are four new sizes available, with diameters ranging from 13 to 17 inches. No specific prices were given, though—you’ll have to visit a dealer for more details. In case you’re looking for the one nearest you, you can refer to Michelin’s dealer locator through this link.
