Michelin Malaysia Launches LTX Trail Tyre For SUV And PickUp Trucks

Michelin Malaysia has launched its MICHELIN LTX Trail on- and off-road tyre. This tyre is specifically suited for SUVs and high-rise pickup trucks.

Nissan X-Trail_Off-road_Trail“At MICHELIN, we are constantly innovating to enable people to move around more freely, safely; and to live a better life in motion. The new Michelin LTX Trail is a great match for the increasing popularity of SUVs, which is projected to grow 5.6% year-on-year, from 2021 to 2026. Perfect for consumers who own 4×2 and 4×4 high-rise pickups, as well as SUVs – such as Toyota Hilux, Toyota Fortuner, and Nissan Navara, these tyres also cater to those whose lifestyle demands the ability to reach on- and off-road destinations, for work or pleasure. As the MICHELIN LTX Trail is designed for multi-purpose use, it is recommended for 80% on-road and 20% off-road driving,” said Oliver Biggart, Managing Director of MICHELIN Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei.

Michelin LTX Trail TyreThe LTX Trail tyre offers an extended lifespan, long-lasting safety with excellent wet braking performance (even when worn), and lower interior noise levels for a more comfortable ride. With this versatile tyre that performs well on both paved and unpaved roads, you can expect to journey safely and with confidence no matter the terrain.

“We are confident that the new MICHELIN LTX Trail gives drivers in Malaysia a safe and comfortable ride on the road, across a variety of terrain – ranging from city commuting, wet road, highway driving, to light and moderate off-road,” added Biggart.

The 3 major advantages of MICHELIN LTX Trail are:

  • Michelin_LTX Trail41% longer mileage1 with the RallyForce2 Tread Compound that provides better durability and maximum service life for both on- and off-road use, and a new tread design with the Biting Shoulder that wraps from the tread down the sidewall, to protect against sidewall aggression and ensure greater off-road performance and traction.
  • Long-lasting safety, even when worn, with Variable Thickness Sipes that provide improved contact patch for better handling, grip and braking performance. On wet roads, when compared to its premium competitors, the MICHELIN LTX Trail stops 3.1 meters shorter when new, and 4.6 meters shorter when worn2. On dry roads, when new, it stops 3.8 meters shorter3.
  • 19.8% lower sound pressure level4, thanks to Duo-Harmony Blocks featuring two different block shapes in the tread’s center that spread the pattern noise energy across a wider spectrum, for a quieter and calmer driving experience.

The Michelin LTX Trail is available in 9 sizes, with rim dimensions ranging between 15″ and 18″, at all Michelin authorised tyre dealers across Malaysia.
