Stamp Transport Targets Half a Million Kilometres on New Michelin X Multi D Tyres

Michelin
Myles Stamp, Owner of Stamp Transport, is confident that the new Michelin X Multi D fitments will set a new record mileage for the fleet.
Longstanding Michelin user Stamp Transport could soon be achieving more than 500,000km from its drive tyres, after moving to Michelin’s latest generation 315/70 R22.5 X Multi D drive axle tyres.

Stamp Transport, which operates a fleet of 40 trucks and 50 trailers, has been in operation since 1992 and provides fresh food, pharmaceutical and general haulage solutions for national domestic and international customers, from its site in Enniscorthy, Wexford.

Michelin says its newest regional drive pattern tyres increase mileage potential by as much as 20 per cent versus the previous X MultiWay 3D XDE fitments, which covered 430,000km for the Wexford-based haulier before being replaced.

The new tyres have impressive innovations, including Powercoil, a new generation of robust steel casing cables which helps to make the tyres lighter but more durable, and Regenion tread technology that progressively reveals hidden grooves to maintain grip throughout the life of the tyre.

Myles Stamp, Owner of Stamp Transport, says: “We specify Michelin as original equipment on all our vehicles and we receive impressive results every time. It’s still very early days for the new X Multi D fitments, but we are confident these tyres will set a new record mileage for our fleet.”
