Making its North American debut at Ag in Motion in Saskatchewan, the MICHELIN X TWEEL SSL 2 AT and HST 12N16.5 – the airless tire solution for skid steers – will launch the new version of its award-winning airless radial tire in both an all-terrain (AT) and a hard-surface version (HST). Available Aug. 1 in the United States and Canada, this is Michelin's first embedded 8-bolt hub that is interlocked mechanically to increase durability.

The TWEEL SSL 2 is designed with:

  • Improved shear beam construction that maximizes core life.
  • New spoke formulation provides up to 10 times greater spoke life.
  • Maximum load of 4,400 pounds.

Michelin says that the TWEEL offers the advantages of no maintenance, no compromise and no downtime. The X TWEEL SSL requires no air, thereby eliminating the risk of a flat tire, allowing users to stay in operation with limited downtime to maximize profitability. The X TWEEL SSL also delivers the advantages of easy mounting, damage resistance, exceptional operator comfort, reduced operator fatigue, improved productivity and longer wear life than standard pneumatic tires.

The MICHELIN 12N16.5 X TWEEL SSL 2 HST  is constructed with a 48/32nd-inch tread depth with 8/32nd-inch of undertread. The MICHELIN 12N16.5 X TWEEL SSL 2 AT is constructed with a 31/32nd-inch tread depth with 12/32nd-inch of undertread. The outer core tread can be retreaded multiple times for an effective overall cost of ownership. These new products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.
