460/70R24 Michelin Bibload Hard Surface
We just fitted a set of the new Michelin Bibload tyres on rims to fit a Manitou telehandler, these 460/70R24 tyres have a deep, block pattern tread which really looks the part.
Michelin Bibload tyres
The Michelin Bibload tyre is designed for extreme, hard surface conditions and creates an excellent telehandler tyre.
Michelin Bibload Hard Surface tyre has a number of features:
- Multi-directional tread design for greater stability
- Deep, unique tread design for self cleaning and increased traction
- Enhanced sidewall protection
- Wheel rim stone-guard to prevent damage to the edges of the rims
- Increased ground contact area for ride comfort and longer tread life - the ground contact area of the Bibload tyre is 44%, compared to 29% for the equivalent size XMCL tyre.
Mike Lawton, Commercial Director of Michelin’s UK agricultural division, explained: ‘Each diamond-shaped tread block has seven sides and 12 distinct bevelled edges; giving it a very different appearance to traditional telehandlers’ tyres.’
Mike went on to comment that ‘the net result is a product with unmatched performance on the market, providing better traction, stability, comfort, damage resistance and a longer service life than the XMCL it replaces.’
