Contributing to sustainable mobility with longer tread life for urban and regional transportation, the MICHELIN Agilis HD Z 19.5 tire rolls the competition.

The Agilis HD Z 19.5 tire will replace the Michelin XZE tire in the two current 19.5” sizes (225/70R19.5 LRG and 245/70R19.5 LRH) in October. Offering exceptional durability, mileage and wet traction for high-stress urban and regional commercial applications, the Agilis HD Z 19.5 tire delivers the same great performance as the Michelin XZE tire with improved rolling resistance.

Featuring a customized, five-rib, zigzag tread that combines excellent water evacuation with an aggressive pattern, the long-lasting tread life of the Agilis HD Z 19.5 tire helps drivers maintain confidence over the life of the tire.

“Urban and regional drivers rely heavily on their tires for performance. Having vehicles down can cost owners and fleet managers thousands of dollars a day in lost deliveries,” said Jaye Young, B2B onroad marketing director for Michelin North America. “The new Michelin Agilis HD Z 19.5 tire is the natural evolution of our already best-selling Michelin XZE brand, offering 34% more miles, better-wet grip, and lower rolling resistance than the leading competitors. This makes the Agilis HD Z tire a tremendous investment for owners and managers looking to get the most out of their tires and maximize their investment.”

 How it works:

  • Groove-bottom protectors – help deliver additional defence against stone drilling.
  • Variable-pitch groove walls – help prevent stones from lodging in the tread, extend casing life and improve retreadability.
  • Full-width protector ply – helps protect the working plies from bruising and penetrations, lowering downtime. 
  • Curb guards – provide sidewall and shoulder protection.

Designed with reliability in mind to drive business and conquer the toughest road conditions, the Agilis HD Z 19.5 tire launches in October 2022.
