Michelin tyre E segment : 4 Life Package Michelin products


We were surprised about the results when the regrooved tyres performed 23% of the new tread life and the Recamic treads performed 83% of the original tread life.

Africa Transport Solutions (ATS)

 

Our operation consists of long haulage with an average payload of 32 tons and we are constantly looking for areas of improvement to reduce our overall operating costs. Tyre costs contribute a large % of our overall expenses and it is imperative for us to make the correct tyre selection and choose the correct tyre maintenance option to ensure the lowest possible cpk is obtained.

 

We were introduced to the 4 Life Package Michelin products have to offer and we decided to open new tests to prove the total cpk.

 

Herewith the results:

We were surprised about the results when the regrooved tyres performed 23% of the new tread life and the Recamic treads performed 83% of the original tread life. Evaluation results proved that we will save money in the long term using Michelin new tyres, regrooved and Recamic treads to lower our overall cpk.

 

Michelin has shown a huge improvement in new tread mileage, regrooved mileage and retreadability over its predecessor contributing to an overall lower cpk.

 

I am extremely satisfied with the manner in which Michelin has kept up with the ever increasing demands of the transport operator. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Michelin 4 Life package for use in similar long haul operations.

 

Yours sincerely,

So thanks again to Michelin for a great product combined with great service. Looking forward to doing business with a winning team for many more years to come.

KJF Tyres

 

This letter serves to show our great appreciation to Michelin for the excellent service and product they are currently offering to KJF Tyres. Due to the Michelin product we started using, some dramatic improvements and savings occurred.

 

The overall increase in fuel economy and dramatic increase in handling made the Michelin product our number 1 tyre to use on our trucks. With XDE2+ tyre we are currently using, we have also seen an increase of 30% and more on fuel economy, which in turn, led to higher profitability in our business.

Due to the better handling of our trucks in all weather conditions, there is also more peace of mind when it comes to our drivers’ safety and wellbeing when driving, especially in wet weather conditions which is often the case.

 

When it comes to the service of the staff at Michelin, we are always insured to get the best service any client can ask for, ranging from friendliness to expert advice. They make sure to make us feel as if we are their only client.

 

So thanks again to Michelin for a great product combined with great service. Looking forward to doing business with a winning team for many more years to come.

Over the years we have used the Michelin 315/80 R 22.5 XDE2+ and have found that this tyre offers us exceptional mileage, durability retreadibility and the lowest cost per kilometre.

 We run a fleet of 30 vehicles, predominantly Scania’s and Volvo’s 6x4 pulling Tautliner Interlink and 3 Axel trailers. Our operations is largely based on the transport of goods between Johannesburg and Cape Town.

 

As a rule we closely monitor the performance of our tyres to ensure the best possible C.P.K.

I would recommend the use of the Michelin XDE2+ in an operation similar to mine.

BM Hauliers and Logistics, a long distance transport concern since 1982 and currently operating 70 plus combinations country wide as well as into our E2+

BM Hauliers and Logistics

 

 It is our privilege as a consumer of Michelin products to attest as follows.

 

BM Hauliers and Logistics, a long distance transport concern since 1982 and currently operating 70 plus combinations country wide as well as into our neighbouring states, has been using Michelin XDE 2+ II’s extensively for many years.

 

We consistently experience between 300 000 Kms and 320 000 Kms per set on drive axles not withstanding these vehicles being used regularly on the arduous Johannesburg/Durban route negotiating 1700m altitude change covering severe undulating mountain terrain. All vehicles are

fitted with retarders creating retardation through the drive axles placing additional strain on tyres. These casings are recapped once providing us with another 200 000kms and then sold for further recapping. We have never yet experienced any casing failure other than due to abuse.

 

We constantly test tyres for various manufacturers and has done so for Michelin more than ten years. Our exposure allows us to confidently recommend XDE 2+ II’s based on experience and proven cent per Km results.
